If the skin of your neck is sagging or has persistent fat deposits, Dr. Natalie Driessen can perform a neck lift procedure to help recontour your neck line. Neck lifts, also known as platysmaplasty, works to remove excess skin and fat around your jaw line and tighten your sagging skin, creating a more sculpted and youthful appearance for your neck. Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction with facelifts, and produce long-lasting results if the patient maintains their weight.
Our plastic surgeon will meet with you one-on-one prior to your procedure to discuss your goals and expectations and to evaluate your health. This helps us determine which type of surgical method will be most beneficial for you, and to develop a customized treatment plan. Additional treatments may also be recommended, such as brow lifts, eyelid surgery or skin resurfacing.
We will provide you with detailed post-op instructions to help ensure proper healing, and we will follow up on your care to help prevent complications and give you the best results. You will likely need to wear a compression garment for several weeks to help reduce swelling and encourage healing.
