Get A Smooth, Elegant Neck

Our bodies go through a number of different changes as we get older. Over 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 Atlanta and Alpharetta Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Philip Robb Jr.

What Is A Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to redesign and restructure the current neck anatomy. The two main reasons patients seek a neck lift at Robb Facial Plastic Surgery are to correct either a 'double chin' or a 'turkey neck'. 

Double Chin

The double chin is caused by excessive fat under the chin. This fat lies deep in the neck, making any other non-surgical treatment unable to achieve significant results. Dr. Robb specializes in the Deep Neck Lift, which is among the most advanced cosmetic surgeries in the world; only a handful of surgeons are able to perform it safely and effectively.

During a Deep Neck Lift, deep fat is removed and sculpted without the use of liposuction. Glands in the area can be trimmed safely, and the deep neck musculature can be sculpted if necessary. Then a muscular ‘platysmal sling’ is created and used to keep the structure looking compact and youthful.

The Turkey Neck

A Deep Neck Lift Surgery can help you get rid of the loose, sagging skin that forms around the neck as you get older. It can also address vertical banding in the neck. The procedure repairs the underlying structure of the neck and removes excess tissue, which enhances the facial profile and gives an overall appearance of youth.

Everyone has a unique neck and facial structure as well as their own aesthetic needs, so it is imperative that Dr. Robb Jr. takes an individualized approach to each patient when performing a neck lift. Reach out today to schedule your one-on-one 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 with excess fat, loose and saggy skin, and vertical lines or bands in the neck are good candidates for a neck lift. 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 for optimal results. These instructions will include stopping the use of tobacco products, certain medications, and alcohol. Avoiding these risk factors helps ensure a safe surgery and a speedy recovery.

What To Expect After The Neck Lift Surgery

After a neck lift, it is normal to feel tightness for 3-4 days, but not pain. You may also experience some swelling and bruising. These symptoms are temporary and will subside. Dr. Robb will see you the next day to evaluate your condition, and again on the third day after surgery to remove the dressings.  

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.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

At Robb Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we’re proud to offer the best care possible; this includes helping our patients heal faster. Part of our rapid recovery program includes multiple sessions in our hyperbaric oxygen chamber. 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT, infuses your body with a high concentration of oxygen and has been scientifically proven to accelerate healing times, improve surgical outcomes, and improve the longevity of your results. The increased level of oxygen significantly lessens swelling and discomfort as you heal. Scars may also heal better and be less visible. Either Dr. Robb or a member of our team would be happy to explain the advantages of using HBOT during your consultation. 

What Are Results Like?

You won’t believe how natural your results look. Our patients often report that they look ten to twenty years younger. Those who are unaware that you had the surgery will find you more youthful and refreshed, and generally, any signs of surgery are hidden or absent. Dr. Robb has refined his technique over the years to ensure that each patient leaves looking like a revitalized version of themselves.

What Other Procedures Complement A Neck Lift?

Often, a neck lift is part of a complete facial rejuvenation done in one surgical procedure. Many patients undergo a lip lift, eyelid rejuvenation, browlift, and facelift as well. During your consultation, Dr. Robb will carefully listen to your aesthetic concerns to determine if ancillary surgical enhancements would be beneficial for you.
