Often times, patients that come to A New You Plastic Surgery and Laser Center are bothered by the “turkey” neck and are looking for improvement.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift addresses wrinkles and sagging skin on the neck caused by aging or weight loss. The procedure removes excess skin, tightens underlying muscles, and improves the contour of the jaw line. The surgery is typically performed in conjunction with a facelift at our AAAASF Certified Surgery Center in Oak Lawn, IL, but it can be done as a stand-alone treatment. A neck lift may also be called neck rejuvenation, mini neck lift, suspension neck lift, or lower face and neck lift.
Oftentimes, patients have localized issues to the neck and do not want to undergo a traditional neck lift or the downtime of surgery. For these patients, we offer Laser Neck Contouring and Neck Liposculpting. While these procedures do not replace surgery, they can often times “delay” and improve the skin quality
What is Neck Liposculpting?
Similar to liposuction where underlying fat deposits are removed, neck liposculpture goes one step further by also creating a “chiseled” appearance by adding definition to the new contour of your neck.
A minimally-invasive technique, liposculpting is a valid solution for individuals who want to cosmetically improve the look and feel of their neck area but do not want to undergo major surgery. This procedure is also sought after by those who want long-lasting results with less recovery and downtime.
Neck liposculpting is effective in treating the following cosmetic neck concerns:
- Double chin
- Thick, full neck areas
Placement of incisions is dependent on each individual procedure, as improvements in the neck and chin may require different incision placements. A specialized cannula will then be used to aspirate excess fat without disturbing the nerves and blood vessels of these delicate areas.
Laser assisted liposuction is used to help tighten the undersurface of the skin during a liposuction procedure, or it could just be a laser resurfacing procedure that will tighten the skin externally. We employ similar technique as liposculpting, but the laser heats the skin to a controlled temperature which stimulates collagen to support skin tightening.
