Enhance Your Neck and Jawline with an Expert Neck Lift at Elite Plastic Surgery

While many think of the face as being the region most immediately impacted by the aging process, the truth is that your neck and jawline are also places where visible changes can potentially tell the world that time has started to take its toll.

If you have noticed that the presence of a “turkey wattle,” horizontal bands, creases on your neck, and/or fatty jowls have started to impact your youthful appearance, you may want to consider a neck lift with Dr. Torabi at Elite Plastic Surgery. 

This procedure firms and tightens up your jawline by removing excess skin and smoothing over wrinkles. It can also be combined with liposuction to comprehensively remove pockets of fatty tissue under the chin and create a more elegant, graceful set of contours.

The neck lift is ideal for patients of any gender, and our surgical team is known for its utilization of advanced techniques to create exciting, naturalistic results. If you’d like to learn more, reach out to Elite Plastic Surgery in Chandler and schedule your consultation today.

Your Private Consultation

Crafting Your Treatment Plan

Your cosmetic journey with us will start with a consultation that gives you the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your aesthetic goals with a member of our surgical team. Your surgeon will also ask you about your medical history, learn about which medications you are taking, and perform a physical examination of your neck. Every patient is different, so your surgeon will work closely with you to develop a surgical plan that is tailored directly to your needs.

Exploring Your Options

At Elite Plastic Surgery, our team prides itself on its ability to offer a number of both surgical and non-surgical treatment options. During your consultation, you’ll be able to explore numerous procedures that might help you achieve your desired results. You’ll learn about the benefits that come with each option so you can craft a treatment plan that sees you enabling your ideal results in a way that aligns with your schedule and lifestyle.

Establishing Peace of Mind

Your initial consultation will also give you an ideal opportunity to learn everything there is to know about your upcoming procedure. Your surgeon will describe the technique he’ll be using to create your results, explaining details like incision placement and what you can expect in terms of post-surgical scarring. Our goal is to ensure that you enjoy total peace of mind so you can feel comfortable and relaxed as you look forward to your final results.

Pre- and Post-Procedural Prep

Our team will ensure that you have everything you need to prepare for your procedure, and you’ll be given a detailed set of guidelines that will help you have the most comfortable possible experience.

Am I the Ideal Neck Lift Candidate?

The neck lift is ideal for patients of just about any age. Our team has performed the neck lift on patients in the 20-year age range, as well as on patients between the ages of 60 and 70 years old. During your consultation, your surgeon will help you decide whether or not the neck lift is an ideal option for you. 

You’ll likely be a great candidate for this procedure if you identify with any of the following:

  • You’re interested in removing excess neck skin after substantial weight loss
  • You wish to address the presence of loose, hanging skin around the neck or jawline
  • Your neck is showing visible signs of aging
  • You have excessive skin around the chin or jowls
  • You have deeper wrinkles or bands around the neck and jawline
  • You are in good physical health

Our Advanced Surgical Technique

Your neck lift procedure will be performed while you are under general anesthesia and will likely take between one and three hours to complete. During the procedure, your surgeon will make an incision under your chin to begin the surgery. In some cases, the incision will be made behind or in front of the ears, and your surgeon will discuss these details with you before your procedure. If fat reduction is needed, liposuction will be the first step. 

The next step will involve pulling your neck muscles into a tighter and slightly higher position, at which point the skin will be pulled and redraped. Your surgeon will also ensure that any excess skin is carefully trimmed away. Sutures will then be used to carefully close the incisions, and your surgeon may choose to insert drains that will help you avoid avoid fluid buildup within the incisions for a more comfortable recovery experience. 

If your procedure will also include the removal of excess fat via liposuction, your plastic surgeon will use either ultrasound or laser technology to assist with the procedure. This works to liquefy the unwanted fat, making it far easier to remove. A cannula (tube) will be inserted into the area, and it will effectively remove the fatty tissue. Once the procedure is over, you’ll be moved to our recovery area before you’re able to return to the comfort of your own home.

What to Expect After Your Surgery

Once you’ve been moved to our comfortable recovery area, our post-operation nurses will monitor you for about 45 minutes to an hour. Once you’ve been discharged, you will need to wear bandages and a compression wrap on your neck and chin to ensure that your healing process is a comfortable one. You can expect to see slight bruising and swelling in the area for two to four days, and some patients report feeling a continual tightness in the neck area. We’ll ensure that you have everything you need to remain comfortable as you rest and recover. 

Your sutures and drains will need to be removed at a follow-up appointment three to seven days after your surgery. Our team will help you schedule follow-up appointments that let us ensure you’re healing properly. Most patients find that they’re able to return to work after about seven to 10 days. Your final results should be visible once the swelling subsides completely after about five or six weeks.
