Male Neck Lift in NYC
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift for men, also known as a Platysmaplasty, is a surgery performed on the muscles along the front of the neck. This procedure tightens those muscles (and skin), lifting the neck and improving its elasticity. A neck lift also enhances the jawline via the reduction of excess fat and loose skin. Similar to a male facelift, a neck lift tightens the underlying muscles for a more youthful appearance, albeit much less invasive. A neck lift can be performed with a facelift or on its own. Many regard the eyes as the first place to age. The neck is a close second. Results often offer dramatic results, taking 10 to 15 years of a patient’s age and appearance. Along with the facelift, a neck lift is often regarded as one of the more proven and transformative treatments in modern plastic surgery. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends working with a board-certified professional. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in neck lift surgeries for men in NYC.
How is a Neck Lift Performed?
Prior to a neck lift surgery, the patient will be given an IV sedation or a local anesthetic. A neck lift involves incisions made around and behind the ear lobe resulting in undetectable marks following surgery. Via these carefully placed incisions, excess fat deposits are removed from the neck and, if need, the underlying muscles are restructured. In 2020, there have been many advancements in plastic surgery that allow procedures such as a neck lift to be performed with minimal incisions and scarring. A local NYC expert in the field, Dr. Steinbrech typically completes a neck lift in just 2 to 3 hours.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
It is common knowledge that the neck is one of the first places to show one’s age. The best candidates for a neck lift are in good overall health and are seeking a corrective measure for a more youthful appearance. In addition to age, some men who may have experienced extreme weight loss often opt for neck lift surgery to counteract loose or sagging skin. Ideal candidates are men over 40 and flexibility to miss about a week of normal activity. The best results come from patients seeking to improve:
- Loose skin and excess fat
- Skin or leftover from weight loss
- Sun or wind damaged neck skin
- Double chin
- Jowl fat
Post-surgery patients can expect swelling, numbness and some bruising after your neck lift surgery. Bandages are applied during the recovery period and in some cases, drainage tubes may be used to gather excess fluids for the first-day post-surgery. Most men require one week at home to heal, typically with the assistance of a family member. Cold compresses can be used to reduce minor swelling and in some cases, pain medication can be prescribed. Most male NYC patients can return to work two weeks after their neck lift surgery but must refrain from strenuous activities leading up to that time.
