to Provide You the Personal Care You Deserve
Nobody loves a turkey neck, yet time, gravity and genetics can bring the signature droopiness and sagging jowls to your neckline. Stress and environmental factors can also affect the look and shape of your neck. The neck can be one for the first places you notice the signs of aging that develop into fatty jowls, double chin, loose skin, horizontal creases and vertical bands. A neck lift tightens the skin and underlying muscles and removes excess fat to create sleeker contours.*
Austin plastic surgeon Dr. David Dellinger holds board certifications in both plastic/reconstructive and general surgery. Together with the team from Elysian Plastic Surgery, Dr. Dellinger has helped men and women throughout Texas achieve their appearance goals with the help of neck lift surgery.
Contact us online or call our Austin office at 512-229-1978 to learn more your options for a neck lift.
A neck lift may be right for men and women who are bothered by extra skin and fat in the neck. You should also be healthy and have realistic expectations about what a neck lift can do for you. A neck lift can be a good option for people who are unhappy with their neck contours, or who feel their neck looks older than their face.
A neck lift can significantly improve the appearance of your neck and define your jawline. A neck lift doesn’t treat facial aging, though. Dr. Dellinger may recommend combining neck lift surgery with a facelift for more comprehensive rejuvenation.*
During your consultation, Dr. Dellinger will examine your neck and determine which type of neck lift may work best for you.
Your neck lift may be performed under general anesthesia, conscious sedation or local anesthesia depending on your custom procedure. Your neck lift may take an hour to 3 hours.
After your neck lift, you should rest at home for a few days before gradually resuming light activities. You may have some bruising, swelling, numbness and a tight feeling right after your neck lift. The bruising should dissipate within the first week, though it may take several months for the swelling and numbness to completely go away. Your results should be long-lasting, although nothing can completely stop the aging process.*
