Neck Lift for Men
Direct neck lift surgery (platysmaplasty) is an effective way for men to tighten sagging skin or loose muscles that reside beneath the jaw-line, resulting in an overall firmer, more youthful appearance.
Why Neck Surgery?
Typically, men over the age of 45 seek out neck lift surgery because it helps reverse the natural signs of aging. As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin, which can result in loose and sagging skin in certain areas of the body. The neck is a common area to correct with surgery due to the following issues:
- Excess fatty neck tissue or the appearance of band lines around the neck
- Lack of definition at the neck line
- Drooping skin under the jaw-line that has lost its elasticity (“turkey neck”)
What to Know About Neck Lift Surgery
Neck lift surgery takes two to three hours to complete. Be prepared to spend 24 to 48 hours recovering.After this procedure, patients may experience some initial swelling, bruising, and numbness in the neck region. Dr, Vargas may prescribe pain medications to alleviate soreness and swelling in the weeks following the procedure.
Additionally, Dr. Vargas will give you post-surgery instructions to aid in the recovery and overall success of your surgical procedure. By following the post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Vargas, you can greatly lessen complications and speed up the healing process.
