Who is an ideal candidate for a Necklift?
Ideal candidates for a neck lift include women or men with loose or excessive skin around the neck caused by:
- Significant weight loss
- Aging or sun damage that has taken a toll on their physical appearance
- Women or men who want to retain or restore a youthful, natural appearance to the lower portion of their face
- People in reasonably good health who have realistic expectations
Where will my incisions be placed?
During your surgery, Dr. Lin and Dr. Cohen-Kashi, at Long Island’s North Shore Center for Plastic Surgery, will make a small incision behind the earlobe where they’ll tighten the underlying muscles and remove excess fat and skin.
What can I expect immediately after surgery?
Patients can expect to see some mild swelling, numbness, and bruising during their recovery process.
When can I return to my normal, daily activities?
Patients can return home on the same day and recovery is relatively fast. Most patients are able to return to work within two weeks and final results are visible within 3 to 6 months as swelling subsides.
