Neck Lift Washington, DC
The early signs of aging will appear in many different forms as you get older. One area where it begins to appear prominently over the course of time is the neck. Eventually, the neck will become covered in wrinkles, deep folds, and saggy skin. The only way to get rid of these issues and rejuvenate one’s youthful appearance is through a neck lift surgery performed by Dr. Michael Olding in Washington, DC.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging on the neck. It is not a direct excision neck lift (see Male Aesthetic Procedures). As individuals age, the skin and muscles of the neck begin to lose their tone. Often performed in combination with a facelift, a neck lift involves tightening the superficial muscles of the neck to define the jawline and neck.
If the neck lift is done without a facelift, it is typically performed through a small incision under the chin, or in combination with a small scar around the ear. The process is different for each individual due to the unpredictable nature of aging. This makes it very important to choose a highly experienced plastic surgeon like Dr.Olding to perform the neck lift procedure. Each surgery is unique since it should be customized to suit the condition of each client according to his or her individual needs
What to Expect After Undergoing the Neck Lift Procedure
The neck lift procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis. This means patients can safely return home the same day of the surgery. Patients are advised to take some time off to rest and recover after the surgery is completed. This includes taking some time off work and avoiding strenuous physical activities.
Recovery takes about two weeks, with results lasting for 7-10 years. Side effects of a neck lift may include short-term swelling, bruising, bleeding, nerve damage, and asymmetry.
