What is a neck lift?

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that addresses excess sagging skin, fat, and muscle laxity in the neck and jowls. Loose, crepey neck skin is a common sign of aging that can form what many refer to as a “turkey neck.” This lax skin may also form horizontal neck bands that age your appearance.

With a minimally invasive suture approach to neck lift surgery, Dr. Greenberg can help rejuvenate your neck and jowls, effectively addressing concerns related to loose skin, fat accumulation, and muscle laxity. 

How is a suture neck lift different from the traditional procedure?

A suture neck lift offers a minimally invasive alternative to traditional procedures, often requiring larger, more extensive incisions. Dr. Greenberg’s technique involves creating three small, discreet incisions, each about the size of a pencil tip eraser. 

Utilizing tumescent anesthesia that combines lidocaine, epinephrine, a blood vessel constrictor, and saline solution, this innovative method enables Dr. Greenberg to perform liposuction, Renuvion® skin tightening, and a platysma muscle lift. The result is a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance without the need for extensive incisions or general anesthesia.

Will I be asleep for my neck lift?

North Texas Cosmetic Surgery specializes in tumescent (local) anesthesia for neck lift procedures so you can remain conscious during surgery. This approach offers several benefits, including: 

  • A faster recovery 
  • Less pain
  • Reduced risk associated with general anesthesia
  • Quicker return to daily activities
  • Minimized postoperative side effects
  • Enhanced patient safety and comfort

Dr. Greenberg prioritizes your comfort and safety throughout the procedure to ensure a positive experience.

How much downtime can I expect after a neck lift?

Dr. Greenberg’s minimally invasive approach and tumescent anesthesia offer shorter downtime than traditional neck lift surgery. Most patients return to work just three days after the procedure. You must wear a neck and chin garment for the first 72 hours after surgery. 

After the initial period, make sure to wear the garment for 8-10 hours a day while at home for the next two months.

This one-time treatment can help you regain a youthful appearance for several years. To learn more, call North Texas Cosmetic Surgery or schedule an appointment online today.
