Wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin in the neck area can be a very unwelcome sight. These early signs of aging can rob us of our youthful glow, even if our face is still looking just fine. In this situation, many people may want to turn to a neck lift in Newport Beach instead of a full facelift.
What happens during the procedure?
The first step of a neck lift is an in-depth consultation with Dr. Wirth. He will talk about your medical history, general health, and skin condition. Dr. Wirth will examine your neck and discuss the details of the procedure with you, including complimentary procedures or non-surgical procedures that may help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Once you are ready to begin the surgery, you will be put under general anesthesia by an expert anesthesiologist.
Dr. Wirth will then make small incisions around and behind your ears in your hairline, and a very small one under the chin. Using these incision points, he will carefully lift the muscles of the neck and remove the extra fat. He will lift the skin into place to create a firm contour, then trim away the excess skin. Once this procedure is complete, Dr. Wirth will close the incisions and apply a pressure dressing around your head and underneath the chin.
In total, the procedure takes between 2-4 hours.
