As you age, the skin around your face and neck start to sag and can make you look noticeably older. If you have started to notice that the excess skin around your neck is starting to sag and make you look an age that you aren’t willing yet to claim, then you might want to consider getting a neck lift by Dr. Thomas F. Crais. Read on to learn more about neck lifts.
- What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure designed to lift and tighten the skin around your neck. A neck lift can involve a variety of procedures including:
Liposuction to remove excess fat around the neck
The removal of excess skin
During your surgery, you will be put under anesthesia and tiny incisions will be made either behind the ears or under the chin. Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Thomas F. Crais will then access the excess fat and skin in the neck and will likely use a combination of liposuction and a skin removal technique in order to be able to lift and tighten the neck.
- What is recovery like?
The thought of going under the knife can be scary for just about anyone involved, but understanding what recovery will be like will help you to be more prepared for what is to come. Once you have been released from recovery at the hospital, you will be sent home to recover from the comforts of your own bed. During recovery, you can expect to take about two weeks off from work until you are fully recovered and able to take on your tasks and responsibilities once again. While at home and in recovery, avoid things like any sort of strenuous activities, lifting, or any sort of contact sports. Your main goal during recovery is to get as much rest and relaxation as possible.
- What are results like?
Results from a neck lift are undeniable. Not only will you be able to get rid of that “waddle” that you once had around your neck but you will be able to look younger and healthier than ever before.
