Miami’s source for neck lift cosmetic surgery
Neck Lift Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL
A neck lift is commonly sought to tighten loose skin under the chin, which is a common sign of aging. Also, if you have localized deposits of fat in the front of your neck or under your chin, then a neck lift may be for you.
By removing excess skin under the chin and in the front of the neck, Dr. Polo can help you look younger by giving your neck a better contour. People are often self-conscious about sagging neck skin, and look and feel significantly younger after surgery.
Neck lift surgery is done on an outpatient basis in our Miami facility with either local or general anesthesia. The procedure may require an incision under the chin, behind the ears, or both. Fat is suctioned or excised, muscles may be tightened, and skin may be removed, all depending on your particular needs.
After surgery, you will return home in dressings or in an elastic neck sling. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication, and swelling and bruising disappear over approximately 2 weeks. The final result of a neck lift is evident in 1 to 3 months.
The specific risks and the suitability of the neck lift procedure can be determined only during your consultation with Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Polo. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk, but major complications are rare.
