How Does the Neck Lift Procedure Work?
Dr. Wirth can utilize a number of different surgical techniques in your neck lift surgery, and we’ll work with you to design a surgical plan that will bring you in line with your aesthetic goals.
Neck lift surgery typically takes three or more hours to perform, depending upon the extent of the procedure, and is usually performed under general anesthesia but often does not require an overnight stay.
Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS begins by making two incisions under and behind the ears as well as under the chin, which will continue toward the hairline. He then loosens the skin away from the underlying tissue, so that excess skin and fat can be removed before re-draping the skin. An incision directly underneath the chin is sometimes also required to tighten the muscle near the central neck area. Dr. Wirth then finishes surgery by closing the incisions with thin sutures or tissue glue.
