About Neck Lift
When loose skin and fat become excessive, a neck lift may be the only solution for restoring a youthful appearance. You may want to consider a neck lift if you have sagging skin bands or unwanted fat around the neck. The result is firmer neck muscles and skin, a better-defined jawline and a younger look.
Neck Lift or Facelift?
Patients often wonder if they should have a neck lift or a face lift. A face lift addresses more concerns of the mid-face, as well as sculpts the jawline, while a neck lift corrects cosmetic problems of the neck and jaw. These procedures are sometimes combined for a more comprehensive solution. When you visit with Dr. Hubbard in Virginia Beach for your neck lift consultation, he will help you determine the best treatment for you.
A neck lift is an outpatient procedure typically performed with either sedation and local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Dr. Hubbard makes limited incisions beneath the chin, behind the ears and around the earlobes to tighten the skin and muscles. He may also use liposuction to remove fat. Incision lines are usually discreet.
After the Procedure
Surgical dressings are removed the day after surgery, and sutures are removed in 7 days. The majority of swelling and bruising resolves in about 1 to 2 weeks with remaining swelling and bruising subsiding in about 1 to 2 months. Post-operative discomfort is normal, temporary and easily relieved with oral medication.
