About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you tired of wearing scarves or turtlenecks all the time to conceal the loose, flabby skin on your neck? La Jolla, CA plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Schoemann performs neck lift surgery to address the appearance of an aging neck. This cosmetic surgery tightens the section under your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By taking away the excess skin and fat while incorporating a tightening method to produce a softer neckline, this lower facial surgery at Schoemann Plastic Surgery can provide significant enhancements to the lower half of your face. Dr. Schoemann is a double board-certified, fellowship-trained plastic surgeon who has trained extensively to master plastic surgeries of the face. Rest assured that your neck lift will provide unparalleled results at the hands of our skilled surgeon.
Men and women contemplating neck lift surgery generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Regardless of the reason, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If your weight is stable but you feel frustrated by loose skin and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great option.
Neck Lift Reviews
"I just completed a neck lift and am astounded at the results! I am 5 days in and will have stitches removed in two days. After having extensive experience with skin cancer surgeries on my face, I can say that Dr. Schoemann is a master at his craft. Today, I am able to go out in public as my discoloration and swelling is so minimal that I am comfortable doing so. He has an amazing staff, starting with the best anesthetic doctor, Richard, and the most competent and delightful nurse, Jill. Dr. Schoemann is without a doubt the best surgeon I have ever encountered. He has the personal double-board certification that shows his dedication to perfection along with a warm, caring, and competent manner. His staff reflects his commitment to providing the patient with confidence and great results. If you are looking for the 'best', do yourself a favor put Dr. Schoemann at the top of your list of Doctors' to consult. You will not be disappointed. Thank you to everyone who helped make this a remarkable experience. p.s., I consulted with another highly recommended MD (not double-board certified) and left that office feeling less than 'special.'"- T.K. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2017
During a neck lift procedure, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed around your ears, and another one may also be made underneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, neck liposuction would be completed first. Next, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is performed until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been attained. Although sutures are used to close the incision, scarring should not be visible since they are located under your chin. An injectable, such as Kybella, may also be used to enhance the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface, such as laser treatment or a peel, to create a younger-looking and glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away after some healing time has passed. It's important to rest and eliminate high-impact movements and activities for several weeks to assist in the healing period. During this time, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should see visible outcomes almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that the neck lift treatment can make one of the most significant improvements to a person's profile, taking a decade off your appearance.
