What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift in Miami may combine several types of surgical procedures to achieve your desired results. Dr. Alex Earle, Miami Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon often begins the process with liposuction, which will remove excess fat to contour and smooth the neck and jaw. Hidden incisions can then be made to lift loose skin, giving the area a tighter, firmer appearance. Some people choose to have this procedure performed with others, such as a brow lift or eyelid lift, for even more significant facial rejuvenation.
How Long is Recovery From a Neck Lift?
“You can expect some bruising and swelling that should resolve within a few weeks,” states Dr. Natalia Vidal, Miami Plastic Surgeon, “Some swelling will last up to a few months, and your results will become clearer as the swelling decreases. Immediately after surgery, you will need to rest with your head higher than your heart and to avoid turning your head or stressing the neck area.”
The type of surgical procedures you have will determine the details of your recovery. Liposuction can cause noticeable swelling and bruising but involves no incisions, while a full neck lift will require time for incisions to heal. Follow all instructions given by Dr. Earle or Dr. Vidal to achieve your best results.
