Neck lift – General Procedure
A neck lift can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Consult with a plastic surgeon you trust to determine which one is right for you. The incisions for a neck lift follow the lines around the earlobes and extend back behind the ear and into the hairline. A small incision is also made underneath the chin to help with tightening the neck muscles. This way, the incisions stay inconspicuous and heal very well. Dr. Schreiber will then lift the skin off of the underlying neck muscles. This allows him to tighten the neck muscles in order to help establish a long-lasting improved contour to the neck. Tightening the neck muscles also gives a more youthful, smooth contour to the neck.
The next step involves pulling back the skin of the neck and any excess skin is removed. Stitches are used to secure the skin back behind the ears. The entire procedure takes about 3 hours and it’s done as an outpatient. If you’d like to stay overnight in the hospital, arrangements can be made for this at a very affordable rate.
Neck Lift – Recovery Process
The stitches in front of the ears are removed 3-5 days after the procedure. The stitches behind the ear are removed about 7 days after the neck lift procedure.
Dressings are placed right after the operation and they stay on for 3 days. Following the removal of the dressings three days later, you can shower and wash your hair.
Men as well as women are good candidates for a neck lift, and the discomfort is minimal. Any associated discomfort is well controlled with oral pain medications. After a neck lift and most plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Schreiber also prescribes antibiotics to help prevent any infection.
Dr. Schreiber is trained on all facial rejuvenating procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. Surgery is not always necessary to achieve the aesthetic look you’re trying to achieve. This is why Dr. Schreiber conducts a thorough assessment of each patient’s goals to ensure you’re having the correct procedure to attain your aesthetic goals. Some of the non-surgical procedures available at Baltimore Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery include: laser skin resurfacing Baltimore, botox, and microneedling.
