What is a Male Neck Lift?
The male neck lift is a surgical procedure that tightens the muscles of the neck and trims away excess sagging skin from the lower face, jaw, and neck region. This procedure eliminates vertical bands in the neck that cause the “turkey neck” effect, as well as jowls and sagging skin along the jawline, producing a firmer, more defined profile and neck area.
What are the benefits of a Male Neck Lift?
Many men wish to address such common issues as jowls along the jaw line, sagging skin beneath the jaw, vertical bands and sagging skin in the throat area. All of these flaws can detract from an otherwise youthful appearance, and all of these are easily eliminated with a Male Neck Lift. The most common problems that a Male Neck Lift eliminates include:
- Fatty deposits or jowls in the lower face and neck.
- Sagging skin in the jaw line or throat area.
- Vertical bands in the neck.
- “Turkey neck” effect.
How is a Male Neck Lift performed?
The Male Neck Lift is a simple and safe surgical procedure that is typically performed in less than two hours. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis, with either twilight or local anesthesia. The surgery is done through small incisions that are typically camouflaged behind the ears and/or beneath the chin. The surgery involves tightening the underlying neck muscles, trimming away excess skin and fat, and lifting the remaining skin, suturing the incisions, and applying a dressing.
Recovery after a Male Neck Lift
Plan ahead to make sure you can allow yourself the time to rest properly after the procedure. Arrange to have someone drive you home and help with routine tasks for a few days while you recover. You may need to take a few days off work, and you should avoid shaving for the first week after surgery until stitches are removed, and the incisions have healed properly. Compressive bandages will be wrapped around your neck to aid the healing process by supporting your neck muscles and sensitive skin tissue and reduce swelling and discomfort. For the first two weeks, you must keep your head elevated even while sleeping, and avoid moving your neck as much as possible. Most of the swelling and soreness will subside naturally after this period, and you may gradually return to regular physical activity over a period of two to three weeks after your surgery. It will take about four weeks to see the full results of your new, toned and firm profile once all the internal swelling subsides.
How Much Does a Male Neck Lift Cost in Staten Island, NY?
The cost of your total procedure will be determined by several factors, and costs may vary between patients. Most health insurance does not cover the neck lift procedure. However, Dr. Decorato’s office keeps cosmetic procedures affordable for all patients by providing easy financing and flexible payment options.
