ACHIEVE A MORE YOUTHFUL JAW LINE WITH A NECK LIFT
Sagging skin and excess fat under the chin can add years to your appearance and take away from the natural beauty of your facial structure. Some people develop jowls, a double chin, and sagging skin around the jaw because of genetics and the aging process but this can be corrected with a neck lift procedure.
The neck lift is designed to improve many of the visible signs fo aging in the jawline and neck to create a more defined, sculpted, and contoured appearance.
Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin are both Board Certified (ABPS) Plastic Surgeons with years of experience performing facial rejuvenation and facial plastic surgery procedures for patients in Richmond, Virginia and Vienna, Virginia. Our doctors and the entire team at Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody) stay up-to-date on the latest surgical techniques and work to ensure the most natural-looking results with your procedure.
YOUR NECK LIFT PROCEDURE
Many patients undergo a neck lift to restore the youthful contours of the jaw line and neck area. The procedure can create a dramatic change in your appearance by lifting and tightening the skin around the jaw line. The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Reps or Dr. Sundin to discuss your goals. We can determine whether you are a good candidate for a neck lift and provide more information on what to expect during and after surgery at this time.
Our doctors use special techniques to make the smallest incisions possible around the neck and jaw line. Liposuction may be needed to remove excess fatty tissue under the chin. Your surgeon may make a small incision beneath the chin and the ears to tighten the neck muscles underneath, and to remove excess fat and skin. For those who have a moderate amount of loose skin and fat, liposuction combined with tightening of the neck muscles may be needed.
THE RECOVERY PROCESS
Dr. Reps or Dr. Sundin will provide detailed post-op instructions to ensure a proper recovery. You may need to wear a compression garment around the neck to reduce some of the swelling and discomfort. Your doctor will advise you on how long you will need to wear this garment. Most patients can return to work and resume regular activities within two to four weeks of surgery and you can enjoy the full result after the swelling and bruising subside.
