Youthful, younger looking skin does not end at your chin. Wrinkled, sagging skin on your neck adds years to your appearance making you look older. Neck lift surgery with Dr. Ariel Ostad in New York, NY smoothes the jawline and neck while taking years off your outward appearance.
Technically called a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift is an elective cosmetic surgery. It may be performed to:
A neck lift is an alternative to a face lift for patients who still have a smooth or contoured upper face but have the unfortunate double chin, turkey neck, or sagging jowls. The procedure can be popular with a younger group as well as older patients. Patients as young as 30 who want to get rid of the excess fat and patients in their 60s who want the toned neck of youth receive pleasing results. A neck lift can be performed on its own or with other procedures to create the desired outcome.
Dr. Ostad performs a neck lift as an outpatient procedure in the AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities) certified office. Using small incisions, he performs deep lifting beneath the muscles and possible microliposuction to remove fat. Excess skin is then removed. Swelling and bruising are minimal and scarring is barely noticeable.
Recovery varies from patient to patient. Although there is downtime and post operative care involved with a neck lift procedure, patients usually return to normal, social activities within a week. Swelling, bruising, or a feeling of tightness is normal and resolves quickly. Following your aftercare instructions helps ensure a speedy recovery.
In Dr. Ostad’s precise, experienced hands, a neck lift can make you look younger and refreshed without looking overdone or unnatural. Contact our office to schedule your appointment with Dr. Ostad. (646)798-9494
