Quite often, the neck is one of the first areas where skin can loosen, giving a prematurely older appearance. For patients who are experiencing loose neck skin but only minimal jowling, a Signature Neck Lift is a very attractive option. Dr. Elizabeth most commonly performs this procedure for her male patients, but the beneficial effects can also be realized by both younger and older women. Not everyone is a candidate for the Signature Neck Lift, as significant facial sagging may make a SignatureLift the better choice. At your consultation, Dr. Elizabeth will discuss whether the procedure is the best option for your rejuvenation goals.
In performing a Signature Neck Lift, Dr. Elizabeth can utilize very short incisions located primarily behind the ear and under the chin. This makes it possible to address the aging changes specifically in the neck. It also means that any scars will be well camouflaged.
Depending on the extent of the surgery, a Signature Neck Lift can take a little over an hour. Performed with a combination of mild anxiolytics and local anesthesia or with IV sedation, you will experience little discomfort. Some swelling and bruising are expected after a Signature Neck Lift, but much of it will diminish within the first few weeks.
