Your Neck. Beautifully Enhanced.
The neck lift is a transformative procedure. It is done to smooth and reshape an aging neck – restoring a more youthful contour.
Explore the possibilities
At PryorHealth Plastic Surgery, we believe in subtle cosmetic outcomes that look and feel incredible. Please take a moment to view our neck lift before and after gallery to see what’s possible.
The neck lift is done under general anesthesia and will last between two and three hours. To begin, one of our expert Rockford neck lift plastic surgeons will create small incisions behind the ears and beneath the chin.
Through those discreet openings, they will remove excess fat, tighten lax muscles, and remove a small portion of the platysma muscle. In some cases, they will also perform an ultra-precise liposuction procedure to remove unwanted fat and contour the area. Once the underlying structures have been reshaped, the surgeon will drape your skin over your new contours, trim away any excess tissue, and carefully close the incisions with sutures.
You may be ready for a neck lift if you have:
In general, the best neck lift candidates are men and women who are between 40 and 80 years of age. In addition, your skin should feature some elasticity so that it can tolerate the stretching that is associated with the procedure.
After a neck lift Rockford patients' new, streamlined neck will emerge gradually. In general, you can expect your optimal results to become apparent within six months. Thanks to our careful placement of the incisions, you should have very few post-surgical scars.
The results of a neck lift are very long-lasting. Although every patient is unique, most of our clients enjoy their new contours for up to ten years.
Most of our patients need to take between one and two weeks off from work following their neck lift. The first few days will be spent almost entirely in bed. During the initial recovery period, we recommend having a friend or family member stay with you to help out around the house.
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you heal:
