The neck is one of the areas of the body where the effects of time and gravity can be seen most prominently. As the aging process and sun exposure cause the skin to lose its natural elasticity, droopy skin can begin to develop, obscuring the trim neck contours of youth. However, with a neck lift procedure, Dr. Montegut can remove excess skin and tighten the underlying muscles in order to give the neck a smoother, younger-looking appearance.
Dr. Montegut will begin the procedure by making several small incisions that are discreetly hidden behind the ears and underneath the chin. Next, excess skin will be carefully trimmed away, and, if necessary, the underlying neck muscles will be tightened. If the patient has excess fat in the neck, then liposuction is performed at this time in order to further enhance the results of the procedure. The neck lift can be combined with facelift surgery for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Most patients are thrilled with the results of neck lift treatment at our Newport Beach practice and require only a brief recovery period before they return to work and their normal routines. Dr. Montegut will provide detailed instructions for the days and weeks after your procedure to ensure that you recover from surgery as quickly as possible.
The final results from the neck lift procedure should appear within weeks and they will last for several years. To learn about the kind of results that you can expect to achieve, please contact our practice today and arrange a consultation with Dr. Montegut.
