Your Neck Lift Procedure
To keep you comfortable throughout your procedure, Dr. Eichenberg uses sedation and local or general anesthesia. A neck lift may involve an incision under the chin, behind the ears, or both. Dr. Eichenberg customizes each neck lift based on the specific areas of concern. For example, he may use liposuction to remove fat, and then use other techniques to tighten lax muscles and remove excess skin.
After your procedure, you will go home with your chin and neck wrapped in dressings. You may need to wear an elastic neck sling as well. Some patients experience mild discomfort, which can be easily controlled with oral medication. Facial shaving can be resumed in about one week or with doctor approval. Swelling and bruising disappear over approximately 2 weeks. The final result is evident in 1-3 months.
