A sagging “turkey neck” can age your appearance well beyond simple wrinkles and sagging of the face. In many of our male patients, we find that they are OK with the signs of aging, but feel self-conscious when that sagging skin extends to your neck. Here is where patients come to Dr. Basile to tighten the neck and jawline for a natural looking rejuvenation.
About a Male Neck lift
A neck lift procedure removes excess fat and skin below the chin and on the neck. The procedure restores the youthful contours of the neck and jawline for those experiencing signs of aging specifically on the neck. This procedure can rid you of a “turkey neck,” double chin and even jowl lines.
Am I a good candidate?
Good candidates for a male neck lift include those seeking tightening of the skin surrounding their lower jawline and neck. This procedure will not change the underlying structure of your neck or jawline, but rather restore a more youthful look to your natural appearance. Candidates must also be in good health and non-smokers for this procedure.
How is a Neck lift performed?
A male neck lift will include general anesthesia or other sedation methods based upon Dr. Basile’s recommendation. Based on your case, Dr. Basile will also recommend a traditional or limited incision neck lift. A traditional will require an incision behind the ear, along the hairline and up past the temples where a limited generally has an incision surrounding the ear. The existing fat will then be moved or redistributed to better sculpt the neck. Dr. Basile will then tighten the muscles and remove excess skin.
Results and Recovery
During your recovery, you will want to lay down with your head elevated. You can expect some bruising, swelling and soreness, but this will subside as you heal within approximately two weeks. You should avoid physical activity for one to two months and can return to your normal activities within two weeks.
