Neck Lift Surgery in Dallas
A neck lift surgery in Dallas is typically performed to remove excess fat and/or skin on the lower face, chin, and neck. This procedure can greatly improve the signs of aging. The neck is one of the body parts that visibly shows the signs of aging and can cause a patient to look older than they actually are. A neck lift or lower rhytidectomy often corrects the jawline and neck’s contour, removes skin laxity in the lower face leading to the jowls, and corrects any muscle bands in the neck that create abnormal contours. This cosmetic facial procedure may be combined with a facelift, chemical peel, or liposuction techniques to achieve a more dramatic improvement. Many patients report that their neck is one of their best features after a neck lift instead of being distracted by a sagging neck. There is no better time than now to refresh your facial appearance. Schedule your neck lift consultation with Dr. Azouz to take the first step to enhance your natural beauty.
Am I a Candidate for a Neck lift?
Neck lift candidates include patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their necks. A Neck lift can help with the appearance of creased, wrinkled, and saggy, aging skin.
Common concerns for neck lift candidates include double chin, pockets of fat under the chin, “turkey neck,” sagging skin along the jawline.
Neck Lift Benefits
Neck lifts have many benefits, including:
- A more youthful appearance by creating a slimming effect and reducing the jowls.
- Decrease the amount of excess skin around the neck and jawline, which cannot be resolved with diet and exercise.
- A slimmer neck and a more defined jawline can improve the entire facial appearance and provide a higher confidence level.
How Neck Lift Is Performed in Dallas?
The extent of your neck lift procedure depends on your desires and Dr. Azouz’s expert opinion. There are various techniques available to address your specific cosmetic concerns, which will be discussed during your consultation. Throughout the neck lift surgery in Dallas, Dr. Azouz often removes the excess neck skin and tissue. Commonly, the platysma muscle, or the muscle in your neck, is tightened for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. It is common for facelift patients to experience swelling after the procedure, so it may take several weeks to see the neck lift results. Dr. Azouz provides specific aftercare instructions and follow-up appointments with any surgical procedure to ensure ideal results and healthy recovery.
Anesthesia for a Neck Lift
Dr. David Azouz performs neck lift surgery in Dallas under local and sedative anesthetic medication. With the use of local and sedation patients tend to have a quicker recovery time after their neck lift surgery. Patients who undergo sedation usually report less nausea, better pain control, and feel less groggy after surgery.
Neck Lift Recovery
Many people are concerned about how visible the surgical scars will be after surgery and as they heal. Depending on your situation, Dr. Azouz will either carefully make one incision under the chin or one behind each ear. Patients who are a little bit younger that don’t want to change the appearance of their face, may be able to achieve their desired neck enhancement with incisions only behind the ears. Either method will leave patients with scars that are easily hidden and end up healing well with the proper care. Post-procedure, it is important to understand the recovery instructions and timeframe. After surgery, your neck will inevitably feel tight, numb, and will be bruised. Most of these symptoms should subside within a week, however, the tightness may remain for a longer period as you get used to your new profile.
