THE PROCEDURE:

Neck lift is a relatively straight to the point procedure that generally lasts between 2-3 hours. The type of anesthesia administered at the beginning of the procedure will likely depend on the particular preferences of the patient and the surgeon. While many patients may prefer local anesthesia combined with a sedative, some people choose to be unconscious during the procedure.

The scope of the procedure usually varies according to the distinct needs and goals of each individual. Some people achieve their desired results through a simple liposuction process that involves the removal of excess deposits of fat from the neck. However, greater result can be achieved through the removal of excessive skin and fat along with the tightening and restructuring of the underlying muscles of the neck.

Most of the time, Neck lift surgery may also be performed in conjunction with other facial surgical procedures like face lift, brow lift, and eyelid surgery.

Neck bands are often an age-related condition that starts to show when the neck muscles become thick and cord-like, causing the appearance of stripes or bands all over the front of the neck.
