Neck lifts are intended to address the signs of aging in the neck such as wrinkles, excess fat, and lax muscles. The goal is to achieve a smooth jawline and profile. Dr. Mohan is a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon with experience in cutting edge techniques for neck lifts.
Some patients require tightening of a lax neck muscle called the platysma. The tightening helps smooth the contour of the neck. Liposuction is typically performed to remove excess or unwanted fat in the chin and the neck. Incisions are made behind the ear to help remove excess skin. A neck lift only addresses loose skin and excess fat in the neck and under the chin.
During the consultation, Dr. Mohan will perform a thorough exam to determine a plan that will best rejuvenate your neck and face. Based on his evaluation, he will discuss your goals and what can be achieved through surgery.
A neck lift can be performed by itself or in conjunction with a facelift. After the procedure, you may have drains which are removed in 1 to 2 days after surgery. A surgical compression bandage will be applied to help reduce swelling and bruising. Patients can return to light duties or office-based work in 1 week after surgery.
