Neck Lift The face and neck are two of the first places men and women will notice the more visible signs of aging. The delicate skin of the neck can begin to show wrinkles and folds that form due to increased skin laxity. The natural loss of collagen in the face and neck can cause loose skin that easily creases. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we understand how important it is for adults to look and feel youthful, and with plastic surgery procedures, we can assist in achieving that. For some patients in the area of Newport News, Virginia, we find that the neck lift procedure helps in restoring a youthful appearance I this area. Why address the neck? The neck lift is a procedure that is commonly done in conjunction with a facelift, but this isn’t always necessary. Patients are surprised to learn how the skin laxity and creases of the neck can contribute to one’s appearance and be a telltale sign of aging. Bands and wrinkles that form, along with fat deposits, impact the profile. What happens during a neck lift? During the neck lift procedure, our doctors, including Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren, will address the following: • Neck wrinkles and bands • Fat deposits (submental fullness) • Platysma (neck muscles) • Loose and sagging skin During the initial consultation, our team develops a surgical treatment plan that is suited to the patient’s unique needs. Our doctors will evaluate the patient’s current state and make appropriate recommendations based on the information he compiles at this visit. Patients are advised on aftercare, including expected recovery times and how long patients will need to take off of work and social gatherings to facilitate healing.
