Neck Lift in NYC
With the passage of time, factors such as gravity, your genetic background, weight changes and natural aging can lead to the development of unwelcome changes in the neck region, including saggy skin, unwanted fat accumulation, and the loss of muscle tone. These changes can result in the formation of vertical bands, a double chin, and loose skin, which are typically resistant to diet and exercise efforts. Dr. Matthew White, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon offers top-tier neck lift solutions in New York City to address these issues effectively, and create a sculpted, youthful look that appears fully natural.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift will contour and rejuvenate the neck area, removing sagging skin and the double chin effect. In New York City, our clinic, led by the renowned Dr. Matthew White, stands out as a premier destination for neck lift surgeries. For younger patients with resilient muscle structure and satisfactory skin elasticity, neck liposuction may be all that is needed. For many patients, however, a more extensive surgery will be necessary.
What is the procedure?
Dr. Matthew White excels in performing neck lift surgeries and may employ liposuction as part of the procedure to remove excess fat, tightening of skin, or facial fat transfer when appropriate. This integrated approach aims at providing a comprehensive rejuvenation of the neck, offering a smoother and more youthful appearance.
Necklift Before & After
What are the benefits of a neck lift?
This transformative procedure not only eradicates saggy skin and relaxes muscles may involve transferring natural fat to smooth etched-in neck creases and wrinkles, for a significantly rejuvenated neck area. Our seasoned facial plastic surgeon will guide you through the decision-making process during your initial consultation, ensuring that the chosen treatment aligns seamlessly with your aesthetic vision. The benefits of opting for a neck lift in our New York City clinic include:
- Restoration of tightness to sagging skin and muscles
- The removal of excess fat deposits
- Replenishment of volume in areas with deep wrinkles
- Enhancement of neck skin smoothness
- Possibility of combining with facelift for an all-encompassing facial rejuvenation
Who is a candidate for a custom neck lift?
Neck lift surgery is well-suited for individuals seeking aesthetic enhancement in response to the visible signs of aging, genetic factors, or fluctuations in weight, while maintaining realistic expectations regarding the outcome. Typically, candidates for a neck lift in NYC with Dr. Matthew White are those aged 40 and above, looking to address issues such as:
- Under-chin fat
- A saggy, “turkey neck” appearance
- Loose neck skin
- Visible signs of damage from sun or wind exposure in the neck area
- Vertical neck bands
To determine how to best address your neck condition, Dr. White will evaluate your skin elasticity and issues such as sagging skin, and fatty deposits, creating a custom treatment plan.
What is the recovery?
Post-surgery, patients embark on a recovery journey, closely guided by our team to ensure a smooth and swift healing process. Adhering to postoperative care instructions is vital to achieving the best possible results and a swift recovery.
Immediately following the procedure, patients can expect to experience some degree of swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area, which is completely normal and part of the body’s natural healing process. You will need to keep your head elevated and avoid any strenuous activities during the initial recovery period to reduce swelling and support proper healing. Pain medication and cold compresses may be recommended to alleviate discomfort and minimize swelling.
The majority of patients report a noticeable reduction in swelling and bruising within the first two weeks, and many are able to return to work and engage in light activities during this time, depending on the nature of their job and daily responsibilities. As the healing process continues over the subsequent weeks, patients will start to see the final results of their neck lift, with a more defined, smoother neck contour and reduced signs of aging or sagging.
