Neck Lift Procedure
Depending on how much contouring is needed, a neck lift may consist of simply liposuctioning the neck area and beneath the chin to sculpt the area. To treat more advanced signs of aging in the neck, more extensive surgery is needed.
When you arrive at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery for your neck lift Oakland medical professionals will administer anesthesia and the treatment area will be prepped for surgery. Incisions will be made under the chin and just behind the ears. The platysma muscle will be cinched tight and sewn together with dissolvable sutures, and excess fat and skin are removed. The remaining skin and tissue will then be pulled tight and incisions will be closed. A dressing will be applied and a temporary drain may be inserted if necessary.
