NECK LIFT SURGERY
Performed by John L. LeRoy, M.D., FACS in Atlanta, Georgia
The natural progression of aging, weight loss, and the effects of gravity are all factors that can contribute to a buildup of loose, inelastic skin and pockets of excess fat along the neck. The good news is, advanced procedures available from our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John L. LeRoy, can effectively rejuvenate the skin in the neck and result in a more youthful and smooth appearance. With neck lift treatment, Dr. LeRoy can help you achieve your cosmetic enhancement goals with natural-looking results.
Neck Lift Overview
Procedures to renew the appearance of skin along the neck and chin can involve a number of effective techniques, depending on the level of sagging skin that is present. Through small and discrete incisions, Dr. LeRoy can perform liposuction to remove excess fat that has accumulated in the area. For many patients, Dr. LeRoy can also tighten the underlying neck muscles and remove the sagging skin, ultimately redraping the remaining skin for a significantly revitalized appearance.
A neck lift can be an excellent companion procedure to a facelift or other facial rejuvenation treatments, with the benefit of providing you with a more comprehensive cosmetic makeover.
Neck Lift Recovery
Depending on the extent of the procedure, most patients who have neck lift surgery are able to return to normal daily routines within about two weeks after treatment. There will be some swelling and bruising after surgery, and patients will need to wear a compression garment for a few days in order to facilitate the healing process and keep the neck stabilized. Any discomfort during recovery can be alleviated with medication. Dr. LeRoy will advise you to refrain from engaging in strenuous activity for several days after neck lift surgery so that the treated area heals properly.
