Neck Lift in West Orange, NJ
Plastic Surgery Center International performs neck lift procedures for the residents of West Orange, NJ.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a series of procedures to tighten lax or sagging tissues in the neck. Patients who have concerns about excess skin or fat in the neck area, or a “turkey wattle neck,” may wish to consider the procedure. A neck lift is often combined with other plastic surgery such as a facelift.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
A neck lift is usually performed under local anesthesia. Incisions of about an inch are made behind the ears and/or underneath the chin. Patients who have greater laxity in the skin may require longer incisions behind the ears. The procedure releases the muscles from the skin; the neck muscles are then pulled tight. Excess skin may also be removed through additional incisions around the ears. The skin is secured with permanent sutures or a permanent adhesive.
