Our bodies go through a number of different changes as we get older. Over the course of time, these changes will begin to show themselves in the form of loose saggy skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. One area that tends to display these unsightly signs of aging the most is the neck. The neck is prone to developing loose skin that many people often refer to as a ‘turkey neck.” Fortunately, this dreaded look can be reversed with a neck lift performed by Dr. Philip Robb.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that’s designed to get rid of the loose, saggy skin that forms around the neck as you get older. The surgery involves repairing the underlying structure of the neck and removing excess skin to deliver a more youthful appearance and enhanced facial profile.

Everyone has a unique bodily structure and aesthetic needs so it is imperative that Dr. Robb takes a unique approach to each individual patient when performing the neck lift procedure. He will customize a surgical plan based on your individual needs and aesthetic goals. In order to determine if the procedure is right for you, it’s necessary to meet with Dr. Robb for a consultation.

Good Candidates for the Neck Lift

A consultation is your first step to finding out if the neck lift is right for you. Generally, patients who exhibit excess fat, loose and saggy skin, and vertical lines or bands in the neck may be good candidates for the neck lift surgery. Ideal candidates should also be in good physical health and have realistic expectations. During the consultation, Dr. Robb will discuss the details of the procedure in more depth, assess the contours of your neck, and ask you questions about your medical history.

Before the Neck Lift Surgery

After developing your personalized surgical plan, Dr. Robb will provide you with instructions that you must follow a couple of weeks before the surgery to ensure optimal results. These instructions will include stopping the use of tobacco products, certain medications, and alcohol. Avoiding these risk factors can help ensure a safe surgery and a speedy recovery.

What to Expect After the Neck Lift Surgery

After the surgery, you may experience some discomfort along with swelling and bruising. These symptoms are temporary and will subside. We’ll provide you with medication to help control the discomfort so you will feel more comfortable as you recover. You should expect to take about two weeks off from your normal activities to ensure faster recovery and optimal results.
