Some patients find that they’re experiencing these changes earlier than they expected, while others notice them taking shape gradually over the course of several years. Our neck contouring techniques are ideal for restoring a more taut, toned, and contoured look to the neck and jawline.

Enjoy a More Contoured Look with the Neck Lift

Some people feel that their neck gives away their age, and you’re certainly not alone if you’ve noticed changes beginning to impact your appearance. Sagging, drooping, or the presence of excess skin can sometimes keep you from enjoying an elegant and contoured appearance, but they don’t have to be a permanent fact of life, thanks to the impressive surgical skills offered by Dr. Cho at Integrated Aesthetics.

A neck lift can give you a more youthful appearance by contouring your neck, getting rid of stubborn fat deposits, and eliminating loose, excess tissues that create the appearance of a “turkey neck.” By rejuvenating your neck and improving the contours of your chin and jawline, Dr. Cho can enable you to enjoy more confidence and the ability to show off a youthful and attractive look that boosts your self-esteem and enhances your overall quality of life.

To learn more about how the neck lift can benefit you and which additional procedures can help you enjoy truly comprehensive results, reach out to us at our Woodlands or Spring, TX locations and speak with a helpful member of our team to set up your consultation today.

What to Expect from Neck Lift Surgery

Before Your Neck Lift

Prior to your neck contouring, Dr. Cho will perform a physical exam and assess your medical history. If you are a candidate for a neck lift and/or neck liposuction, Dr. Cho will help you prepare for surgery by describing the procedures in depth, answering your questions, and providing you with pre- and post-operative care instructions.

After Your Neck Lift

You will wear a chin strap or compression garment after your surgery to reduce swelling and bruising. You will likely feel tightness and soreness in your neck when the anesthesia wears off. Your discomfort in the first days after surgery will be managed by oral pain medication, although many patients do not require medication.

Recovery After Your Neck Lift

Depending on the extent of your neck lift contouring, the length of the recovery period will vary. Neck liposuction alone usually requires one week or less to recover, whereas the initial recovery period for neck lift surgery is typically one to two weeks. During your pre-operative consultation, you’ll be given detailed aftercare instructions and a complete timeline of your recovery experience. Our team will schedule follow-up appointments and be available to you at all times, to ensure that you recover speedily and comfortably.

Dr. Cho’s Neck Lift Approach

If your only concern is a sagging and wrinkly neck, your surgical plan will involve removing excess skin, tightening muscles, and repositioning tissues to create a more toned and contoured appearance. Your surgery will be performed under local, IV, or general anesthesia and will likely take about two hours to complete.

Incisions will be made around your ears, allowing Dr. Cho to reposition muscles, remove excess fat, and address the presence of excess tissue that may be keeping you from enjoying a youthful look. Dr. Cho will discuss incision placement and your surgical technique with you during your pre-procedural consultation, answering any questions you might have.

For permanent fat reduction in the neck area, liposuction is performed under local, IV, or general anesthesia. Dr. Cho will place small incisions on each side of your neck or under your chin before loosening and removing fat cells are loosened using a suction tube known as a cannula according to the specifics of your bespoke treatment plan.

Recovery After Your Neck Lift

The duration of your recovery period will vary according to the extent of your neck lift contouring. If you decide on neck lift surgery or liposuction, you will receive pre-and post-operative instructions to prepare for your procedure. Neck liposuction alone usually requires one week or less to recover, while the initial recovery period for neck surgery is typically one to three weeks.

You will wear a chin strap or compression garment after surgery to reduce swelling and bruising as you heal after your recovery period. You’ll experience some tightness and soreness in your neck as the anesthesia wears off, and we’ll provide you with everything you need to remain comfortable and manage any post-procedural pain. Most patients are back to normal after about one month of recovery.

MyEllevate may also be a reasonable procedure to contour the neck for patients who have a mild degree of skin laxity.
