Are You Bothered by Sagging or Loose skin on your neck?

The neck is one of the first places to show the signs of aging in men and women. Excess fat, a “turkey wattle”, or deep folds and wrinkles on your neck can detract from your natural beauty and add years to your look.

By addressing the skin and tissues of your neck, you can enjoy a more refined profile with the definition at your jawline restored. A neck lift may be performed in conjunction with a facelift or other cosmetic procedure.

You may be a candidate for a neck lift if:

  • You have a double chin or sagging neck skin
  • Your jawline is affected by jowls and sagging skin
  • You have a “turkey wattle” that mars your overall look
  • Your neck makes you look older than you feel

How Much Recovery Time Will I Need to Plan For?

After your neck lift, you can expect some bruising and tightness. This is normal and should subside over the next few days. It is common to experience a sensation of numbness or tightness that lingers for a few months. Dr. Sulyman-Scott will monitor your recovery closely, will see you at several follow-up appointments, and is always available to you. The recovery time varies from patient to patient, but you will need to plan to take at least one week off work or other activities and avoid any strenuous exercise for at least three weeks. As soon as any swelling and bruising subside, your beautiful, long-lasting results are revealed—refined, youthful, and natural-looking.
