Neck Lift

Show Off Your Neck At Every Age

A beautiful, flawless neck can be yours with a Neck Lift at RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Brooklyn, NY. There are several types of surgical Neck Lift options, each tailored to the unique needs and goals of the patient.

What is aTraditional Neck Lift?

A neck so youthful you will want to show it off

At RENATA Facial Cosmetic Surgery in New York, a traditional Neck Lift is a surgical procedure that will create a more defined and younger neck through a combination of approaches. In most cases, a Neck Lift entails surgically removing excess skin and fat while also tightening the deeper muscles of the neck. The incisions for a traditional surgical Neck Lift are strategically placed around the ears and beneath the chin for optimal camouflage. Sedation anesthesia is administered during traditional Neck Lift surgery to ensure maximum patient comfort. A traditional Neck Lift can significantly improve sagging neck skin, a poorly defined jawline, and unwanted neck bands and is typically done in conjunction with a facelift.

What is aDeep Neck Lift?

Advanced contouring of the neck

A Deep Neck Lift revolutionizes the landscape of neck rejuvenation by delving into deeper layers, including muscles and salivary glands, which traditional Neck Lifts often do not address. This advanced surgical technique is not only beneficial for older patients seeking to address sagging structures that occur with time, but also for younger individuals who may inherit unfavorable neck anatomy unrelated to aging. Unlike superficial techniques like liposuction, which only target surface fat, a Deep Neck Lift comprehensively sculpts the underlying structures, such as deep muscles and salivary glands, to achieve a more contoured result. Customized incisions are typically placed beneath the chin and around the ears, however each patient's unique anatomy requires a tailored approach. Dr. Renata Khelemsky meticulously plans the surgical procedure to address specific concerns and nuances of each individual's neck structure, ensuring a natural outcome while minimizing visible scarring. The Deep Neck Lift offers an advanced surgical solution that transcends conventional boundaries, ensuring a rejuvenated neck appearance for years to come.

What is a Direct Neck Lift?

A unique solution for the aging neck

Another type of surgical neck lift is a Direct Neck Lift. Often referred to as a submentoplasty, a direct neck lift focuses on directly removing the sagging skin and wrinkles of the central neck, also known as a “turkey neck.” This advanced submentoplasty technique, which includes muscle tightening (also known as platysmaplasty) and removal of sagging excess skin, offers a uniquely tailored alternative to traditional Neck Lifts. The key difference in this procedure is that the incision placement occurs along the front of the neck using an irregular line that helps to camouflage the incision once it is fully healed. Ideal candidates for this procedure typically include older patients with significant sagging skin in the front of the neck, or those with hair-bearing skin that can effectively conceal incisions in visible neck areas. Dr. Renata uses meticulous techniques for skin closure and laser skin resurfacing to help diminish the appearance of the scar to one that is faint and imperceptible. Patients enjoy the ability to perform this procedure under local anesthesia in the office as well as a relatively shorter downtime when compared to traditional Neck Lifts performed under sedation anesthesia. This procedure stands out as an ideal choice for rejuvenating your neck without the need for extensive surgery, ensuring you can quickly return to your daily routine.

What is aNon-Surgical Neck Lift?

Early Neck Rejuvenation

While a surgical neck lift is often the best solution to treat sagging skin and fullness in the neck, a non-surgical Neck Lift may be another option for patients with early signs of aging. A non-surgical Neck Lift involves a combination of non-invasive approaches that tighten the neck skin and add contour to the jawline for a more rejuvenated appearance. A non-surgical Neck Lift is a uniquely tailored combination of injectable treatments and energy modalities such as radiofrequency and laser devices that are applied to the skin and deeper structures of the neck. The procedure can be performed in the office, and patients can expect a relatively short downtime with a subtle and natural enhancement of the neck and jawline. Patients seeking non-surgical Neck Lifts typically range in age from their 30s to early 40s and exhibit early signs of neck aging.

How do I know if a Neck Lift is right for me?

Choosing surgical vs non-surgical options

During your consultation for a Neck Lift Brooklyn Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Renata Khelemsky, will discuss your surgical and non-surgical options to determine the best treatment to meet your aesthetic needs. Keep in mind that if you have moderate to severe skin laxity, a surgical procedure will likely give you the best results. Most patients who choose a surgical Neck Lift do so because they have excess skin, muscle banding, and unwanted deposits of fat beneath their chin and jawline and also wish to have long-lasting, significant results.

Surgical Neck Lift

As an outpatient procedure, a surgical Neck Lift may be performed in the office under local anesthesia or in an operating room under sedation anesthesia, depending on the type of Neck Lift technique. If you elect to have multiple surgical procedures, you will likely have surgery at an accredited medical facility with sedation or general anesthesia. Depending on your unique needs and degree of neck aging, Neck Lift surgeon, Dr. Renata Khelemsky, will select the best technique to address your goals. Most often, small incisions in proximity to each ear and underneath the chin are used to perform liposuction to reduce and sculpt the fat along your jawline and beneath the chin. If deeper structural changes are needed, such as those to the underlying muscles, Dr. Renata will select a more advanced surgical approach as will be discussed during your consultation.

Surgical Neck Lift Recovery
& Results

Following proper post-operative instructions helps ensure a safe and easy recovery. After your Neck Lift, Dr. Renata Khelemsky will apply a compression bandage along the neck that helps secure and reduce the swelling. It is essential to follow all post-operative instructions, such as avoiding strenuous exercise and keeping the head elevated during sleep. You will gradually appreciate the results of your surgery over the next several days and weeks as swelling and bruising dissipate. However, patients are advised that healing after surgery is highly variable, and full recovery may take six months and sometimes up to one year.

Frequently Asked Questions

With the use of anesthesia, you will not experience pain or discomfort during your procedure. Additionally, many patients will have sedation anesthesia for more extensive Neck Lift surgery. After surgery, you may experience some tightness and mild discomfort. Dr. Renata Khelemsky will help you transition to a smooth and comfortable recovery with a regimen of over-the-counter medications and occasionally prescription medications.

Overall, a Neck Lift is a relatively safe procedure. However, some risks include blood or fluid collecting under the skin, causing a seroma or hematoma, sensory changes to the skin, pain, infection, and scarring. Dr. Khelemsky will discuss all pertinent risks of surgery during your personalized consultation.

A Neck Lift focuses on revitalizing the neck region by correcting sagging skin, muscle laxity, and excess fat below the jawline, typically using incisions underneath the chin and alongside the ears. Similarly, a Facelift primarily addresses the lower two-thirds of the face, often utilizing similar incisions. Since facial aging commonly affects both the mid-facial areas and the lower face and neck, these procedures are frequently performed together, utilizing shared incision sites, to achieve comprehensive rejuvenation.

A Neck Lift is considered a cosmetic procedure, and it is not covered under medical insurance. However, financing and payment options may be available through CareCredit.
