Over time, gravity draws the tissues in the face and neck downward, altering the youthful balance and contours of the neck and jawline.
This can lead to the appearance of a double chin, jowls, and fine lines and wrinkles. Signs of aging in these areas are often some of the first to appear and can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of youthfulness, as they significantly alter the proportions of the face as a whole. Signs of aging in the neck and jawline can be notoriously more difficult to treat than those in the mid and upper portions of the face. When these concerns progress, more and more patients are looking at long-lasting surgical solutions. Dr. James Marotta offers Neck Lifts on Long Island, New York, delivering naturally youthful-looking results.
The best defense against lax & excess tissue in the neck.
A Neck Lift is a popular surgical cosmetic treatment that eliminates excess skin and tissue from the neck to reveal more defined, youthful, and lifted contours. While there are an ever-growing number of non-surgical treatments for aging in the neck, none offer the effectiveness of a surgical Neck Lift.
A Neck Lift is commonly combined with other surgical rejuvenating procedures, such as a Facelift, Brow Lift, Facial Fat Transfer, Chin Augmentation, or basically any other designed to address your unique set of concerns. With discreetly placed incisions and Dr. Marotta’s expert precision, you can achieve stunning, long-lasting results that appear completely natural.
Offering the most significant improvements to signs of aging. A Neck Lift eliminates such concerns as “turkey neck”, horizontal banding, jowls, crepey skin, and excess fat beneath the chin. By restoring the youthful contours of your neck, chin, and jawline, you can enhance the overall appearance of youth in your face and even appear slimmer. While no procedure can stop future aging, results from Neck Lift surgery often last 10 to 15 years before follow-up treatment may be needed to maintain results.
The Neck Lift procedure is completely customizable, addressing your unique concerns to beautifully enhance your natural beauty. Your Neck Lift may include any combination of liposuctioning submental fat to eliminate a double chin, platysmaplasty to tighten the muscle on the front of the neck, or cervicoplasty to remove loose, excess skin. Your Neck Lift will most likely be performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure, so you will need a close friend or family member to drive you home after surgery. You should have someone stay with you for the first 24 hours after your procedure to monitor you during the first stage of your recovery.
What to expect after your procedure.
You should expect to spend one to two weeks recovering. While some patients heal more quickly or conceal the treated area with makeup or clothing, others may choose to wait until their incisions have healed and swelling has gone down before returning to work or social activities. Your incisions will be placed discreetly behind your ears or along your lower hairline, making them virtually undetectable once healed.
During your recovery, you may need to wear a compression dressing to ensure smooth, sculpted results. Following your Neck Lift Long Island plastic Surgeon, Dr. Marotta, will provide you with post-treatment care instructions to promote healing and prevent possible complications. You will need to return to see Dr. Marotta approximately one week after your procedure for suture removal and for him to assess your progress.
Look younger now and years into the future. Your Neck Lift will provide you with a significantly rejuvenated and natural-looking appearance that will last a decade or longer. While the aging process will inevitably continue, your neck and jawline will permanently look younger than they would without having this procedure.
