Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the neck by addressing sagging skin, excess fat, and muscle laxity. Dr. Fahradyan offers this surgery to enhance neck contours and restore a more youthful, elegant silhouette.

Restore An Elegant Silhouette

A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to address common signs of aging in the neck area. Over time, factors like genetics, sun exposure, and the natural aging process can lead to sagging skin, excess fat, and weakened muscles in the neck. A neck lift can restore an elegant silhouette by tightening loose skin, removing excess fat, and repositioning underlying muscles. This procedure provides a smoother, firmer, and more youthful neck appearance, enhancing overall facial harmony.

Neck Lift Corrects:

  • Sagging neck skin
  • Excess fat deposits in the neck
  • Loose neck muscles
  • Wrinkles and creases in the neck area
  • The appearance of a “turkey neck”
  • Lack of neck definition due to aging

Neck Lift Preparation Guidelines:

  • Undergo a thorough medical evaluation, including blood tests, to ensure your candidacy.
  • Share your complete medication history with Dr. Fahradyan.
  • Follow instructions regarding medications to be discontinued or adjusted before surgery.
  • If you smoke, quit smoking several weeks before the procedure.
  • Maintain adequate hydration in the weeks leading up to surgery.
  • Plan for someone to drive you home after the surgery.
  • Set up a comfortable and well-equipped recovery space at home.
  • Arrange for post-operative care, if needed, to ensure proper wound care and support.
  • Choose loose-fitting, front-buttoning clothing for the day of the procedure.

Neck Lift Aftercare Guidelines:

  • Get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first few weeks post-surgery.
  • Wear the prescribed compression garment to reduce swelling.
  • Take prescribed pain medications as directed by Dr. Fahradyan.
  • Apply cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising.
  • Keep surgical incisions clean and dry.
  • Protect your neck from direct sunlight and use sunscreen.
  • Maintain a balanced diet and stay hydrated to support the healing process.
  • Avoid excessive neck movements and positions that strain the surgical area.
  • Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon.
  • Gradually reintroduce normal activities and exercise under your surgeon’s guidance.

Neck Lift FAQs

Is a neck lift permanent?

A neck lift can provide long-lasting results but cannot stop the aging process. Over time, some degree of aging will occur. However, the effects of a neck lift are often enduring, and individuals can enjoy a rejuvenated appearance for many years.

Are there any risks or complications associated with a neck lift?

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved, including infection, scarring, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, these risks are generally low, especially when the procedure is performed by a skilled, fellowship-trained surgeon like Dr. Fahradyan.

What is the recovery period for a neck lift?

Recovery varies among individuals but typically involves swelling and bruising for the first one to two weeks. Most patients can resume light activities after a week and return to more strenuous activities after four to six weeks. Complete recovery may take several months.

When can I expect to see the final results of my neck lift?

The initial results become visible once the swelling subsides, usually within a few weeks. However, the final results may take several months as the tissues settle and heal.

Will there be visible scarring after a neck lift?

While scarring is inevitable with surgery, Dr. Fahradyan aims to minimize its visibility. The incisions are strategically placed to be inconspicuous, often behind or in front of the ears and sometimes extending into the hairline. Over time, scars fade and become less noticeable.
