The neck is often one of the first places to show our age. Turkey wattle, fatty jowls, and neck banding can all cause us to look older than we feel. A neck lift is a great way to rejuvenate our appearance and take years off of our neck and face for a boost in confidence! Read on to learn more about what a neck lift in Brandon entails.

Neck Lift Procedure

During the neck lift procedure, incisions will be created under the chin or behind the ears. The platysma muscle will be tightened and sewn together, and excess skin and fat will be eliminated. Tissues and skin will be repositioned with sutures and incisions will be closed. Depending on the approach used, there may be scarring. However, there are treatments and products that can be used to help eliminate any scarring that is created for a more natural appearance.

After the neck lift, you will experience bruising and the neck will feel tight and numb. This will resolve with time. It is important that you follow Dr. Shienbaum’s aftercare instructions to achieve your desired results.
