Neck Lift Surgery By Dr. Jaibaji

What Is Neck Lift Surgery?
Neck lift surgery involves removing excess skin or fat from under the chin and on the neck and repositioning the remaining tissue to produce a firmer, more elegant neckline and a well-defined jaw contour.

Our experienced surgeon, Dr. Moneer Jaibaji, can use a variety of advanced techniques to improve the appearance of the neck, including liposuction, cervicoplasty, and platysmaplasty. These state-of-the-art techniques make neck lift surgery a safe and relatively quick procedure that dramatically enhances aesthetic appearance.


Mini Neck Lift and Short Scar Neck lift

Mini neck lift is usually performed in patient in their late thirties or forties.The amount of excess skin is usually limited and with a short scar the skin can tightened to correct double chin and improve the neck cheek definition.

The procedure is usually shorted and the results are spectacular.


When to Choose Neck Lift Surgery
The best candidates will be in good health and wish to reverse signs of aging, sun exposure and smoking present in the lower face and neck regions. A neck lift can treat:

  • Excess fat in the neck
  • Sagging or excess neck skin
  • Jowls or a double chin

Neck lift surgery is a safe and effective way to tighten or remove underlying neck muscles to improve muscle tone. After a neck lift, your skin will appear tighter and smoother, creating a more attractive, youthful-looking contour.

Despite its many advantages, a neck lift may not be for everyone. The best way to find out if you’re an ideal candidate is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon.

Neck Lift Surgery with Dr. Jaibaji 

During the neck lift procedure, tiny incisions are made behind the ears or below the chin. Next, liposuction is used to remove excess fat in the neck, producing a slimmer and smoother neck contour.

Excess skin is removed from the neck through a process called cervicoplasty. During this process, the doctor lifts the skin and redrapes it farther back to improve its appearance.

The skin is then secured in its new position with fine sutures or a special adhesive. Platysmaplasty, a technique that is used to realign or remove specific areas of neck muscle, may also be performed to reduce the amount of “banding” in the neck. Sutures are used to hold the muscles in the optimum place.

The entire neck lift procedure takes up to three hours and is often performed in conjunction with a facelift, a brow lift, BOTOX® injections, or another cosmetic treatment for an amazing transformation.

Neck Lift Recovery

Recovery from neck lift surgery usually takes at least a week and final results may not be visible for a few months, but for most patients it is well worth it.

A slimmer neckline can create an illusion of dramatic weight loss and can even promote a more youthful appearance. Some swelling and bruising are normal after neck lift surgery, but these side effects should disappear within one week.

Dr. Jaibaji may recommend that some patients wear compression bandages to facilitate faster healing. Most patients are able to return to work within two weeks of their surgery. To find out whether neck lift surgery is right for you, contact our practice today.
