Dr. Russo typically performs this procedure in a hospital setting, and patients are put under general anesthesia. Incisions are planned to result in the least amount of visible scarring possible and are typically made behind the ears and under the chin. Once the incisions are made, the skin is pulled taut to smooth and tighten the area. If necessary, liposuction may also be utilized to remove excess fat.
The healing and recovery process after a neck lift can be different for everyone, but a degree of swelling and localized bruising can be expected for most patients.
A snug elastic bandage will be placed around the neck and head area to protect your new neck contours and reduce post-operative swelling. After about three to five days, these side effects will begin to subside and results will start to become visible. A compression garment may need to be worn for about six to eight weeks following surgery to ensure maximum results, after which time your smoother, tighter neck area can be fully enjoyed.
Men and women who have loose, sagging skin or excess fat in the neck area and who are seeking long-lasting surgical correction may be good candidates for this procedure.
