Neck Rejuvenation in Maryland
The surgical options for neck rejuvenation depend on what the patient does not like. For example, some people find fat deposits under their chin bothersome, while others dislike loose and wrinkled skin. Fat collections without loose skin respond nicely to liposuction.
Necks that sag or that have prominent neck muscles showing need additional procedures such as platysmaplasty or a full neck lift.
What is platysmaplasty?
Platysmaplasty surgically corrects the stringy muscles that appear under the neck. The surgeon often performs liposuction at the same time. This involves just one incision under the chin.
How long does the surgery take?
It takes approximately two hours but time can vary according to the particular condition.
Do I need general anesthesia?
This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with the addition of some sedation to aid in patient comfort. We do have board certified anesthesiologists available if desired.
What will I experience during recovery?
Recovery is usually quick and the procedure is well tolerated. You will notice some bruising and swelling for 1-2 weeks postoperatively. A neck support is prescribed for 5-7 days to aid in proper healing. Most people return to work in seven days.
Can I have other procedures performed at the same time?
Yes. Many patients choose to add a Fraxel laser repair at the same time. Fraxel Re:pair removes fine wrinkles and sun damage, and dramatically tightens the skin. Some people choose to add a lower-face lift during neck rejuvenation.
