the necklift

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.

liquid facelift

Above Left - Before. Above Right - After 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!

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.

The Chicago Face Lift Plastic Surgery Scars:

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

50 year old female patient before and 5 weeks after a Short scar facelift, midface lift and lower blepharoplasty. Notice the hidden scars seen only with her raising her sideburn hair with her hand. Notice how narrow her scars are. The redness will fade with time. This can be expedited with laser treatments. One of the huge advantages of a short scar facelift is the elimination of any scars behind the ear. These are usually the scars that heal the worse and are the widest. Without these scars, patients feel very comfortable wearing their hair up

facelift

56 year old female patient before and 6 weeks after a redo facelift, midface lift and upper and lower blepharoplasty. She had a traditional facelift 6 years ago (performed by another plastic surgeon) and her wide scars (with railroad marks) are very obvious behind her ear. She also has an unnaturally high sideburn, which I have repositioned lower. Finally, her "pixie-ear deformity" (one of the most common complications after a facelift) and unnatural ear appearance were corrected.
