Long Island’s First Choice for Surgical Neck Lifts
For most adults, your neck is the first place to visibly show the signs of aging. The skin on your neck will become loose or start to sag under your chin and jaw. In some instances, you will form a “turkey neck”, decreasing the definition of your jawline. In many more cases, fat deposits underneath the chin develop and turn into the dreaded double chin. Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Pamela Gallagher, is an expert at eliminating double chins and turkey necks with the neck lift procedure
At Island Plastic Surgery our experienced staff, led by Dr. Pamela Gallagher, is one of the key reasons your results will be exactly as you’ve envisioned it. We offer a consultation in order to explain our approach, answer any questions you may have, and develop a plan that is customized to your needs and goals. During this time, we will also discuss what you should expect during the neck lift surgery and what recovery time will be like.
Neck Lift Candidates
A neck lift is a proven surgery with a natural-looking result. It is designed to give better definition to the neck and under the jawline. At the same time, it reduces wrinkles and diminishes unsightly banding.
Ideal neck lift candidates are generally those with visibly hanging skin in the neck area. This loose skin can be due to aging, significant weight loss, or simple gravity. Whatever the cause may be, it creates an unflattering profile that can often only be fixed with skin tightening. Neck lift surgery may be recommended if you are at a healthy weight, have lines and wrinkles across the neckline, sagging skin and excess folds or fat in the chin and neck area. If loose, hanging skin is not the problem, neck liposuction might be the better option for you, which is used to remove fat from the chin and neck area.
At Island Plastic Surgery, we see a rising demand for the neck lift surgery for men. More and more men are choosing neck lifts as an option because, like women, they see a significant change in their appearance and love the minimal scarring and recovery time. The procedure helps men and women alike to look and feel their best always.
Neck Lift Procedure
The neck lift procedure focuses on the neck and the under-surface of the chin. There are several techniques used to address these problem areas, which will depend on your individual goals and desires. These techniques include removing fat and skin from the neck area and tightening of the neck muscles. The small incisions are made around the earlobe, in the hair and under the skin.
The talented staff at Island Plastic Surgery has experience with many neck lift procedures and can help you achieve the result that you are looking for. Common components for each procedure are:
- Your surgeon will begin the procedure by making an incision behind and in your ear.
- Your skin is then elevated and muscle tightened, and excess skin and fat are removed.
- Cutting edge biotechnology prepares the neck to respond optimally to all lift procedures.
- Recovery time can be a quick and easy process.
- Following surgery and recovery, you will benefit from a natural-looking effect that shaves years off your appearance.
Mini Neck Lift
Did you know you could experience the benefits of a neck lift surgery in a manner that is less intrusive and provides for a quicker, even easier recovery process? If you’re looking for this experience, you may elect to have a mini neck lift.
A mini neck lift procedure is just as it sounds: a simpler version of a full neck lift. In this version, a small incision is made under the chin. Then the excess fat will be removed, and the neck muscles tightened. If there are any bands, these are divided. The process is relatively painless, and garment is worn around the next for a few days post-op to maintain the neckline contouring.
