Mirror-loving Outcomes of Neck Lift Surgery from Dr. Rotatori
A neck lift consists of the removal of localized deposits of fat in the anterior part of the neck and under the chin, and the repair of muscle laxity under the chin.
This is done with the removal of sagging skin folds in the front part of the neck and jawline to achieve:
- A More Defined Chin
- Less Sagging Skin
- Reduction in Neck Fat
Note that a neck lift has traditionally been part of a full face-lift surgery. This is because your neck muscles are connected to your face muscles, and if you choose a neck lift vs. a face-lift and tighten one without the other, you will do your face a disservice.
Neck lift surgery involves wrapping sagging muscles crosswise to the jaw, restoring that youthful right angle under the chin. Compared with face-lift surgery, neck lift sutures are smaller, there is less pulling and recovery time is much shorter.
In most cases, you will get better results if you get a face-lift in conjunction with a neck lift. During your personal consultation with Dr. Rotatori, he will help you determine the right procedure for you.
