A neck lift is a popular cosmetic procedure designed to address concerns related to excess skin, fat and muscle laxity in the neck and lower jaw area. Also known as a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift can provide a more defined jawline and create more angularity and definition of the neck thereby enhancing facial features and restoring balance. It’s important to note that while this procedure can make the neck appear more youthful, it cannot halt the natural aging process.
Different Types of Neck Lift Procedures
Dr. Conderman has written a chapter on Neck Liposuction in a recent edition of a Facial Plastic Surgery textbook. See here for more information:
There are various treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, that can be done to achieve a more defined neck and jawline and these procedures are tailored to individual preferences and needs. These include:
Before Your Neck Lift
Before undergoing the procedure, you will have a personalized consultation with Dr. Christian Conderman. During this consultation, Dr. Conderman will assess your neck and surrounding areas to determine the best course of action for your specific needs. You will discuss expectations, medical history, and any prior surgeries.
The procedure itself will vary based on the type of neck lift chosen:
Surgical procedures are typically done in an OR suite and depending on patient preference can be done under local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia. Recovery varies depending on the extent of surgery (as outlined above) but typical recovery is 1-2 weeks. Surgical procedures may involve bandages, prescription medications for discomfort, and temporary bruising and swelling. Keeping the head elevated and avoiding neck movement is crucial during recovery. A headwrap/sling is given to patients to optimize outcomes and detailed post-op instructions will be given to patients at the time of their pre-operative visit.
Non-surgical treatments have minimal recovery time with possible side effects like redness, swelling, or bruising that typically subside within a few days.
Neck Lift Results
Results will vary based on the chosen procedure. Non-surgical treatments may yield visible results within a week, while surgical procedures might take several weeks to become noticeable, with full results appearing after a few months.
Cost of a Neck Lift
The cost of a neck lift varies based on several factors, including the treatment type, product usage, tissue removal, procedure duration, and other considerations. A formal quote will be issued following your consultation and this can be discussed with Dr. Conderman and his staff at the time of the consultation.
