Neck Sculpting

Neck lift surgery is one of the most transformative operations Dr. Lesesne performs, restoring a more youthful appearance to the face and neckline. Neck lift surgery corrects visible signs of aging by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your neck when the jawline has become jowly and bands have appeared around the neck.

Dr. Lesesne is a top New York neck lift specialist, renowned for restoring a smooth, refreshed, natural appearance that doesn’t look “pulled.” 

Neck Lift Procedure

During a neck lift surgery, incisions are made under the chin in and, behind the ears. The loose skin is then pulled and tightened, and the incision is closed. The end result is a taut, more defined, natural-looking neck. Scars after neck lift surgery are short, very narrow in width, and are concealed under your chin and behind the ears. 

Neck Lift Recovery

After the procedure, slight swelling and bruising can occur, and will subside in about 5 days. During that time, there will also be some soreness. Patients are advised to stay home and rest for approximately 2 to 3 days following surgery. Patients are usually able to attend social functions after 10-14 days after surgery and may return to full exercise and activity after 4 weeks. It is common for numbness to occur around the incision. You may also notice a tightness, tingling, or pulling sensation. These sensations are temporary and usually subside within the first few weeks.

Liposuction can be done in conjunction with a neck lift to liquefy and remove unwanted neck fat, which allows Dr. Lesesne to recontour the neck and jawline to achieve natural smoothness.  Facial liposuction is performed through a tiny incision made under the chin. When working with a small surface are, Dr. Lesesne suctions out the unwanted fat through a specialized syringe creating a smooth defined neck and jaw. Then, Dr. Lesesne removes the loose skin resulting in a tightened and natural-looking neck and jawline.

For patients with visible bands or cords on their neck that have begun to separate, the neck lift may include adjusting and or tightening the platysma muscle. Tightening the platysma muscle in conjunction with a neck lift and liposuction is an ideal way to improve excessive neck sagging.

To tighten or reduce the platysma muscle, Dr. Lesesne makes incisions under your chin or behind your ears to access the neck muscle or platysma. Dr. Lesesne then manipulates the muscle with permanent sutures to hold the tissue in place. In some cases, it is necessary to remove parts of the muscle. Botox injections can also be used to relax parts of the platysma that are responsible for the band appearance within the neck.
