ABOUT NECK LIFT

Do you feel like the aging process is taking a toll on your neck skin? Is your sagging neck giving the appearance of a "double chin"?
Neck-lift surgery by Dr. Kassir is performed to remove excess fat under the chin, and/or tighten loose skin around the neck area. A neck-lift can revitilize your appearance and reverse the signs of aging.
What is a Neck Lift?
For many men and women, the neck ages before the face, resulting in drooping neck skin, muscle, and fat. A neck lift surgery, also known as a platsymaplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves tightening the neck muscles to reduce a sagging appearance. Incisions are placed under the chin and behind the ears so that scarring is minimized and hidden, preventing the common eye from noticing a procedure was done. Dr. Kassir often performs endoscopic neck lifts using small cameras, which is a revolutionary way to lift the neck muscle with small incision sites and less recovery time. Tightening the neck muscles as well as the skin results in less wrinkles, a more defined jawline, and an overall revitalized appearance. Liposuction is also often used during a neck lift to remove any excess fat in the neck area. Many patients choose to get a face lift in conjunction with a neck lift for a full facial rejuvination, so that they don't have to go under anesthesia more than once. A neck lift is performed under general anesthesia in Dr. Kassir's NJ offices.
You may be a good candidate for a neck-lift if:
- You lack neck or chin definition
- You have loose or baggy skin around your neck- due to aging, weight loss or heredity
- You have excess fat deposits around your neck
- You have loose neck muscle bands
- You have hanging skin and/or wrinkles around the neck
Recovery From Neck Lift Surgery
For best possible results and quickest recovery, it is vital to adhere to Dr. Kassir's recovery guidelines after a procedure. Bandages and dressings are removed from patiets 1 to 2 days following a neck lift, while the sutures are removed anywhere up to 10 days after the procedure. Dr. Kassir provides pain medication to keep the pain minimal during recovery. It is normal for there to be swelling up to 3 weeks, which is why Dr. Kassir reccomends patients to use cold compresses to keep the swelling down. In addition, it is imporant for patients to walk 3 times a day during their recovery weeks to circulate blood flow, which will encourage recovery. Patients are able to return to work within 2 weeks following a neck lift. Patients should avoid any physical activity/excercise for the first 6 weeks. Dr. Kassir's endoscopic
