Neck Lift For Men
Neck Lift for Men in Ann Arbor
Over time, our neck muscles can become weak and our skin begins to sag, producing the dreaded “turkey gobbler neck.” A neck lift in Ann Arbor can help to improve the contour of the upper neck for men, helping to better define the neck and jawline for a more masculine appearance.
Who is a Neck Lift Candidate?
Men who are experiencing excess fat or sagging skin on the neck can often benefit from a neck lift. Many men can experience jowls or excess skin on the neck due to hereditary, aging, environmental factors, and stress. Healthy, non-smokers who are looking to create a more youthful neck contour are often ideal candidates. A consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
The Neck Lift Procedure
During the neck lift procedure, any excess fat will be removed using liposuction. Upper neck muscles will also be tightened to correct any sagging. Incisions often begin at the hairline near the sideburn and continue down and around the ear ending in the posterior hairline.
A neck lift procedure is often done in conjunction with a facelift procedure to create dramatic results. If a full facelift is not needed, a mini facelift can be done in conjunction with a neck lift to provide further tightening.
Other procedures that may be able to help with tightening the neck contour include:
- CoolSculpting: A noninvasive method for eliminating fat cells under the chin. Using cooling technology, CoolSculpting freezes and destroys fat cells, resulting in a slimmer chin contour.
- Kybella: An injectable medication used to reduce excess fat under the chin. In just a few sessions, patients can experience a slimmer neck profile.
Recovery and Healing
Following your neck lift procedure, you will be required to wear a compression garment for several weeks to ensure optimal healing. Strenuous activity should also be avoided for several weeks. Bruising and swelling will occur, which may last for several weeks.
It is advised that you sleep with your head slightly elevated to reduce swelling. Most patients require 1-2 weeks of downtime, after which they can return to work. We offer on-site therapeutic massage to help reduce swelling, and increase tissue mobility; ask your surgeon about this option.
Neck lift procedures are considered cosmetic and are not covered by insurance. You will be responsible for full payment.
