facelift surgery

the medical term neck Rhytidectomy:

Greek for removal of neck wrinkles

Laser treatments

Following a neck lift, we do laser treatments on some of the incisions on the area around the eyes. We do this to help accelerate scar healing and maturation and then to tighten and tone the skin to get you back to your life as quickly as possible.

Neck Lift

BENEFITS

Awareness of a sagging neck can first surface as a dislike of being photographed in profile. The profile view unforgivingly show the hanging skin and muscle that are at the heart of the issue. The neck can look like a a gradual slope from the chin to the Adam’s Apple from this angle. A loss of definition along the chin will often accompany the hanging tissue. The Minimal Incision Necklift delivers a revitalized look with smaller incisions and a reasonable recovery. You also have the benefit of local anesthesia performed in our out-patient suite as opposed to a stay at the hospital.

DESCRIPTION

To correct the aging neck, a healthy improvement can be made through the surgical removal of skin along with the tightening of the underlying muscle. Further benefit can be achieved with liposuction of any fat deposits that are aggravating the situation. An incision is made underneath the chin to access the muscles and fat.

RISKS

All surgical procedures carry risk. Anyone undergoing surgery must understand that even though the odds of a major event are small, risks from surgery are real. Whenever the skin is broken, there is the possibility of infection, necrosis, swelling, bruising, scarring, discoloration, nerve damage, itching, hematoma, pain, etc. Our goal is safety. We use a local anesthetic to decrease the risks associated with general anesthesia. We have you back for several post-op visits to monitor your healing. We are open 7 days each week and are accessible via email. We work together to reduce risk.

NECK LIFT BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES

facial plastic surgeon chicago

74-year-old female before and 6 months after a mini neck lift. Patient was happy with the mild improvement of her neck. She had a very small scar in her submental crease. This was a 14 minute procedure done in the office under local anesthesia. The mini neck lift scar measured only 3 cm.


facial plastic surgeon chicago

74-year-old female before and 6 months after a mini neck lift. It is very important not just to look at static pictures. Patients look very different when they are looking down, animating or moving around. In this picture, you will notice the patient is looking downwards and trying to touch her chin to her chest. This actually reveals a much more dramatic result from her mini neck lift then you would expect to see, especially because you're not really cutting out much skin with such a small scar.

62 year old male before and 6 months after a full scar neck lift. Patient felt a lot more confident without the excess skin and fat in his neck. A lot of people are bothered by turkey neck and a full neck lift is the most dramatic improvement we can offer them.

liquid facelift

87 year old female patient before,6 weeks and 3 months after direct neck lift. Notice the patient had no other surgery. Notice the remarkable difference in the neck contour. There is still some puckering which usually disappears within 1-3 months after the procedure. Patients who are willing to tolerate these scars and do not want an extensive procedure are excellent candidates for this operation. Remember, this was a quick procedure done with minimal sedation and local anesthesia that took about 30 minutes!


mid face lift

facelift surgeon cosmetic surgery

A 65 year old male patient before and 6 months after a direct necklift done in the office under local anesthesia which took only 20 minutes. Even though he was a candidate to get other procedures such as a facelift, cosmetic eyelid surgery, as well as injectables, the only thing that bothered him with his neck and he was willing to tolerate a small T scar. This is a very gratifying operation especially for men who can hide the scar in their beard. His retruded chin was also elevated (pushed upwards) with the procedure to look more normal and even his jowls were improved.

Same patient - notice the scars blending in without the use of any makeup or concealer. The hardest part to this operation is the initial postoperative period and looking at the red thick scar but as with all scars, it usually softens within 6-12 months to become a soft white line in most patients.

Neck Lift Scars Before and After:

Anytime a human being gets cut (with surgery or trauma), scars heal the following way: Initially they are red, raised and hard. Within 6-12 months, they are flat, white and soft. Younger people (<18 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for up to 2 years. Older people (>65 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for less than 3 months

facelift

74-year-old female 6 months after a mini neck lift. Notice how small the scar is in length and it is in the submental crease. You can see from all angles that it is not obvious. Patient was very happy with her mini or short scar neck lift results and her scar placement. The patient started using Dr. Speron’s Natural Skin Care Natural Scar Support at her 2 week postoperative appointment and has continued using it twice a day.

facelift

87 year old female 3 months after full scar direct neck lift. There is still some puckering which usually disappears within 1-3 months after the procedure. With a full scar neck lift, the vertical scar can be seen but the submental scars typically are not exposed unless a patient is looking backward and fully extending the neck.

facelift

A 65 year old male 6 months after a direct necklift. His scars are still a bit red and we suggested he continue using the scar product and massaging aggressively. There's not much we would recommend for laser treatments here, but we would normally recommend everywhere else. There's a little overlap with laser hair removal and we do not want to promote and remove any hair because the beard hair camouflages the scar. So within a man's beard is the one area we don't typically recommend postoperative laser scar treatments.

facelift

67 year old Hispanic female 1 year after a Short scar facelift, midface lift, mini neck lift and upper and lower blepharoplasty. Notice the mini neck lift scar is tucked naturally and imperceptible.

facelift

62 year old male 6 months after a full scar neck lift. He was very comfortable with the scar compared to what he had before surgery. Obviously most men can camouflage most of the scar in their beard line. The scar can be tailored and be longer or shorter depending on what excess skin bothers the patient. It can even be fully within the beard line. Once patient's scars are mature and they are happy with their size and orientation, they can get FUE (minimally invasive hair transplants without cutting and big occipital scars) into the mature white surgical scars to further camouflage them. For areas outside the beard line, they can also consider getting cosmetic tattooing to make the white scar more flesh colored and thus less noticeable.
