Even though most signs of aging occur in the face, the neck is also susceptible to showing signs of aging. A neck lift can reverse the effects of aging to rejuvenate the appearance. ReNova Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa offers this treatment to the residents of Pittsburgh and the neighboring communities of Pennsylvania.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a facial surgery technique that is used to eliminate loose skin and wrinkles on the neck. Neck lift procedures are commonly combined with a facelift and other facial surgery treatments to complement their rejuvenation benefits. Many patients choose to pursue a neck lift in order to achieve a smoother, firmer neck.
Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?
If you would like to achieve a more youthful appearance by eliminating wrinkles and loose skin in the neck, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift. As with all our procedures, we are proud to offer financing options for the neck lift procedure to make it a more affordable treatment for those who desire it.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
The neck lift procedure is performed with general anesthesia. This means that you will be asleep and entirely comfortable for the procedure. During the neck lift treatment, incisions will be made around the ears with an additional incision underneath the chin, where any scarring should remain well-hidden. Through these incisions, Dr. Clavijo will remove any excess skin. Then, the remaining skin will be tightened to produce the desired results.
What is the Recovery From a Neck Lift Like?
After the neck lift procedure, you can expect bruising and swelling that can last for a month or longer. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within two weeks, although we recommend taking as much time to rest as possible following your procedure.
What Results Can I Expect from a Neck Lift?
The results from your neck lift will be visible as soon as any post-operative swelling and bruising fade. The results from a neck lift generally last for many years. You will still continue to develop gradual changes in the neck due to the natural aging process, but the neck lift procedure can significantly rejuvenate your appearance in the meantime.
