Neck Lift Houston
Neck lifting can tighten the skin of the neck and jaw line offering a more youthful appearing neckline. It can be combined with fat removal (liposuction) and tightening of the neck muscle to enhance the outcome in some individuals. Scars are usually hidden and are minimal.
The surgical procedure takes 1 – 2 hours and is performed under general anesthetic. Patients can stay the evening in the hospital for observation. Most patients experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Patients typically require 1 – 2 weeks of limited activity before they can return to work, often requiring makeup application to cover bruising. Swelling will resolve after approximately 2 months. Postoperative recovery can vary among individuals.
Additional surgical risks will be discussed in detail during consultation.
To enhance aesthetic outcomes, this procedure is often combined with a face lift.
If surgery is not for you consider non-invasive anti-aging procedures.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss if you are a surgical candidate, and to review the risks, benefits, alternatives, and expected outcomes of the procedure.
