Neck Lift in Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL
The neck can be your enemy when trying to remain youthful. The neck sometimes displays the first signs of aging, making you look older than you actually are. From sagging skin to muscle banding, aging can leave our neck looking unsightly and sometimes even deformed. The neck lift is a procedure to restore the shape and appearance of the neck. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis offers the neck lift procedure to residents of Chicago, Arlington Heights and surrounding Illinois communities.
What is a Neck Lift?
The neck lift is a surgical procedure to correct:
- Excess skin and fat in the neck
- Excess skin and fat in the lower face or chin
- Sagging along the jawline
- Muscle branding of the neck
- Visible signs of aging in the neck region
The neck lift is sometimes considered an alternative to a full facelift because results can be dramatic and the procedure is minimally invasive. The neck does show signs of aging and, in many cases, correcting the appearance of the neck can achieve optimum youthful results.
Who is a Candidate for a Neck Lift?
If you’re insecure about your neck and often resort to hooded shirts, scarves, and turtlenecks to help boost your self-confidence, it may be time to consider a neck lift. While a neck lift is not a “cure” for the aging process, it can provide dramatically youthful-looking results. Because the neck is not often a body part that other people pay special attention to, the neck lift can be an undetectable way to rejuvenate your appearance completely. Schedule a consultation to learn more about your candidacy for a neck lift.
What is the Neck Lift Procedure?
The neck lift procedure is surgical and customizable to the wants and needs of each patient. The doctor will consult with you prior to the procedure and suggest techniques to best suit your desired outcomes for the procedure itself. The procedure does involve very small, subtle incisions and can also include some light liposuction, as necessary. Once the skin is pulled tight, and any excess fat is removed, the incision will be closed, and the procedure is over.
What is Neck Lift Recovery?
The recovery for the neck lift procedure may involve taking a short time to relax and heal. Dr. Kotis will discuss the specifics of the recovery period at your consultation. Often, patients do need to wear bandages and can manage any slight discomfort with prescribed medications from Dr. Kotis. Full results from the procedure are visible in just a few months.
How Much Does a Neck Lift Cost?
