A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your neck, jawline, and chin. It can also help to correct any loose skin or wrinkles in the area. The procedure involves making incisions in the skin, usually along the hairline, and then lifting and tightening the skin and underlying tissues. In some cases, liposuction may also be used to remove any excess fat in the area. Dr. Frank Ferraro of Paramus, NJ is a dedicated plastic surgeon who can provide this and other breast, body, and facial procedures.
What are the benefits of a neck lift?
There are many benefits that can be achieved with a neck lift. This includes a more youthful appearance, improved definition in the jawline and chin area, and a reduction in any loose skin or wrinkles. The results of a neck lift can last for many years, and it can be an excellent way to rejuvenate your appearance.
What are the risks of a neck lift?
Like any surgical procedure, there are some risks associated with a neck lift. These include bleeding, infection, and reactions to anesthesia. There is also a small risk of nerve damage, which can cause numbness or tingling in the area.
How do I prepare for my neck lift procedure?
Dr. Frank Ferraro will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for your neck lift. This will usually involve stopping certain medications, such as aspirin or other blood thinners, two weeks before the procedure. You may also be asked to avoid drinking alcohol or smoking for at least a week before the surgery.
What can I expect after a neck lift?
After a neck lift, you will likely experience some swelling and bruising in the area. This is normal and will gradually improve over the next few weeks. You will also need to wear a compression garment around your neck for the first week or two to help with the swelling. Most people are able to return to their normal activities within two weeks, but it is important to take things easy during this time and follow Dr. Frank Ferraro’s specific aftercare and recovery instructions.
