Neck Lift Surgery

Undergoing a neck lift in Atlanta at Astra Plastic Surgery can restore a smoother, more youthful-looking neckline. Aging, changes in weight, lifestyle factors, and genetics can leave you with loose skin, excess fat, and muscle banding on your neck that contributes to an older-looking appearance. Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth, and his surgical team are proud to offer neck lift surgery to help patients address the signs of facial aging. If you have fat, sagging skin, or muscle bands around the neck, then consider undergoing a neck lift with our plastic surgeons.

What Is A Neck Lift?

Over time, skin begins to lose elasticity and droop from it’s once lifted position. This can be caused by aging alone or a combination of factors, including genetics, environmental factors, sun damage, stress, and more. The neck area is often one of the first places where aging appears. The delicate skin and anatomical structure of the neck make it an ideal place for fine lines, wrinkles, stubborn fat, and loose skin to develop. A neck lift (sometimes referred to as platysmaplasty) can remove excess fat and skin to sculpt a younger-looking, toned neckline. Neck lift surgery in Atlanta restores youthful contours to the neck and jawline, allowing patients to achieve a renewed sense of self confidence.

What Are The Benefits Of A Neck Lift?

The face and neck are focal point of the body. Often times, patients struggle with their self-esteem once they begin to look older on the outside than they feel on the inside. Neck lift patients can enjoy lifelong benefits that will improve their outward physical appearance.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Neck Lift Surgery?

The ideal candidate for neck lift surgery is in generally good health and a nonsmoker. During your neck lift consultation, Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Killingsworth and his expert surgical team will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. This procedure may be right for patients between forty and eighty years old who have adequate skin elasticity in the neck area, loose skin under the jawline, double or triple chin, excess fat on the neck, skin that has been damaged by sun exposure, and more. It is important to note that neck lift surgery does not stop aging altogether, rather it turns back the clock to a more youthful look.

What Can I Expect During Neck Lift Surgery In Atlanta?

Neck surgery lift lasts approximately 2 to 3 hours, and general anesthesia is used for the procedure. In some cases, your neck lift surgeon can improve the neck area with liposuction alone. If your neck lift procedure requires removing excess skin, our plastic surgeon will place the incisions in locations that allow access to the soft tissue while ensuring that scarring is as inconspicuous as possible.

Your neck lift surgeon may suture the neck muscles before pulling the skin tight over the area and trimming the excess skin. For the first three days after your neck lift, you can expect to have pain, swelling, bruising, and tenderness in your neck.

What Can I Expect After Neck Lift Surgery?

Following neck lift surgery in Atlanta, you may be advised to not turn your neck for the first few days to keep the soft tissues in place. You may be prescribed pain medication and antibiotics. You will need to take two weeks off from work and avoid exercise and strenuous activities for 4 to 6 weeks. You may have swelling for 1 to 2 months, at which time you should begin to see the full results of the neck lift procedure.

After your procedure is over, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will provide you with post-operative instructions. It is important that patients follow these instructions carefully to minimize the recovery period and ensure that patients achieve their desired goals.


What Results Can I Expect From Neck Lift Surgery In Atlanta?

Although some neck lift surgery results can be noticed immediately after surgery, it is important to note that the full results won’t be seen for up to 6 months after surgery. In this time, swelling will subside and patients will begin to nice their youthful contours returning to their neck. To maximize the results of neck lift surgery, it is recommended that patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and use daily sun protection.

During your consultation for neck lift surgery, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will go over your expected results in detail. The expected results are dependent on the size of the treatment area, as well as the patient’s degree of aging. In severe cases, an additional surgery may be required to provide more substantial results. Click the button below to see neck lift before and after photos from real patients.
