Even if your face remains youthful, signs of aging can develop in the neck, giving away your true age. At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we offer neck lift procedures to help patients in Knoxville and Powell, TN, achieve and maintain a youthful appearance.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a facial surgery procedure that addresses loose skin and other signs of aging on the neck. Even if you take great care of your face, the neck can still be susceptible to signs of aging. Loose skin, wrinkles, and lines are the main side effects of aging that develop. A neck lift eliminates excess skin and tightens the remaining skin to produce a firm, smooth appearance. The neck lift procedure can also improve the appearance of neck bands and wrinkles. Whatever your concerns may be, Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD is prepared to help you find a solution with the neck lift treatment.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
At Gallaher Plastic Surgery & Spa MD, we take a personalized approach to every neck lift procedure. This means that the cost of your treatment will depend on variables such as your personal preferences and unique cosmetic goals. As a result, we cannot provide you with the exact cost of treatment until you visit our office for a consultation. If you are concerned about the cost of your treatment, we are proud to offer plastic surgery financing to help make our treatments more affordable. In addition, we offer CosmetAssure insurance with every cosmetic surgery, so you can go into your treatment with confidence and peace of mind.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
For the neck lift procedure, we will use general anesthesia to ensure your safety and comfort during the surgery. To begin treatment, we will make incisions around the ears. Here, they will be well-hidden by the natural contours of the ears. Through these incisions, we will remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin to produce a smooth, toned neck. After the desired results are achieved, we will close the incisions, completing the surgery.
What is the Recovery Like After a Neck Lift?
After a neck lift, you can expect some bruising and swelling around the neck and the incision area. You may have to take a week or more off of work and other activities in order to heal and allow these effects to subside. You will have to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, for at least a month after treatment in order to ensure a smooth recovery.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Neck Lift?
The results from your neck lift will become visible as swelling and bruising fades, although some residual swelling may persist for a few months. However, once your results are fully visible, you can expect them to be permanent. It is important to note that a neck lift will not stop the aging process, and you will continue to develop gradual changes in the neck due to the natural aging process.
The neck lift procedure can compliment a youthful face and enhance your appearance.
