What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, also known as lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging and improve the appearance of the neck area.  Dr. Higdon typically removes excess skin and fat, tightening neck muscles, and repositioning tissues to create a smoother, more youthful contour. This procedure can effectively reduce sagging skin, eliminate neck bands, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and creases, ultimately rejuvenating the neck's appearance and enhancing overall facial harmony.

Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?

A neck lift may be suitable for individuals experiencing symptoms such as sagging skin, prominent neck bands, wrinkles, or loss of jawline definition due to aging or weight loss. Ideal candidates for this procedure have good overall health and realistic expectations about the procedure's outcome. If you're considering a neck lift, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Higdon Plastic Surgery. During this initial appointment, Dr. Higdon will assess your concerns, evaluate your medical history, and discuss your aesthetic goals and various options to determine if a neck lift in the Nashville & Franklin, TN area at Higdon Plastic Surgery is the right solution for you.

What to Expect The Neck Lift Procedure

During a neck lift procedure, you can expect to be placed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the surgery. The first step involves Dr. Higdon creating discreet incisions to access the underlying tissues, often placed behind the ears and sometimes under the chin. Dr. Higdon then tightens and repositions the neck muscles and removes excess skin and fat as needed to achieve a smoother, firmer neck contour. In some cases, liposuction may be used to refine the neck area further.

The incisions are meticulously closed, and dressings or bandages may be applied to aid healing. The duration of the procedure can vary depending on the extent of correction needed, but it typically ranges from two to four hours. The magic behind a neck lift lies in repositioning muscles and removing excess tissue to restore a more youthful and defined neck profile. Dr. Higdon’s surgical approach addresses the visible signs of aging in the neck region, helping you achieve a rejuvenated appearance.

Neck Lift Recovery

Following a neck lift procedure, you can expect some downtime for recovery. Initially, there may be mild to moderate swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the neck and jawline, which can be managed with prescribed pain medication and cold compresses. Dr. Higdon uses advanced prescribing methods that he helped develop, with a multi-modal analgesia approach that minimizes the need for narcotic prescriptions for his patients after surgery. We advise patients to keep their heads elevated and avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks to facilitate optimal healing. Most individuals can return to work and light activities within one to two weeks, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for a longer period. Results will gradually become apparent as swelling subsides and the neck area settles into its new contours. Follow-up appointments with Dr. Higdon are essential to monitor healing progress, address concerns, and ensure ideal outcomes. Our team at Higdon Plastic Surgery is dedicated to providing comprehensive support and guidance throughout the recovery process, so please get in touch with us with any questions that arise as you heal.
