What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, or platysmaplasty, targets signs of aging in the neck, jawline, and lower face. This cosmetic procedure rejuvenates, by removing droopy skin, reducing fat, and enhancing contours for a youthful, defined appearance. Patients undergo this procedure for a variety of reasons. These can include “turkey neck,” visible banding, or reducing under-chin fat (double chin).

Patients commonly pair this procedure with a facelift, to improve harmony with the lower half of the face. Performed alone or with other treatments, Dr. Mansher Singh can customize a neck lift to meet each patient’s unique goals and needs.

What Does Neck Lift Surgery Correct?

This surgery addresses several age-related changes and aesthetic concerns in the lower face and neck. It offers significant improvements in appearance and self-confidence. This procedure can dramatically enhance one’s profile by creating more youthful and streamlined contours.

Common reasons for undergoing a neck lift include:

  • Sagging skin
  • Excess fat
  • Muscle banding
  • Jowls
  • Wrinkles

A lift surgically addresses these issues by removing excess skin, tightening underlying neck muscles, and removing or reducing fat. Dr. Singh tailors each surgery to align with his patients’ unique facial structures and aesthetic goals. By focusing on these key areas, he can provide a rejuvenated appearance.

How is Platysmaplasty Performed?

Dr. Mansher Singh has a meticulous approach to neck lift surgery. It involves several key steps to ensure he can precisely address each of the patient’s concerns. The process begins with anesthesia. During your consultation beforehand, Dr. Singh will be able to choose between intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.

During surgery, he creates an incision at the hairline, continues around the ear, and ends at the back of the neck.

This placement hides the scar after recovery. The approach also allows for adjustments, including fat sculpting, tissue repositioning, and platysma muscle tightening. These adjustments correct issues like jowls, excess fat, and visible banding.

Dr. Singh manipulates the deeper tissues, beneath the platysma, sliding it into a more youthful position. This advanced approach not only smooths the skin but also addresses the underlying structures. This provides a natural, softer look that enhances the jawline and neck’s definition, without looking overly tight.

Recovering from a Neck Lift

Recovery from a neck lift starts with rest and careful attention to the surgeon’s post-op care instructions. Initially, patients may notice swelling and bruising, but these symptoms gradually diminish over the first few weeks. Dr. Singh often applies a bandage around the neck to reduce swelling and support the results. Pain is typically minimal, and patients can manage it with prescribed medications.

At home, Dr. Singh recommends that patients keep their heads elevated and avoid strenuous activities to facilitate healing. Within two weeks, most individuals can resume daily activities and return to work. However, complete healing and full results will occur over several months.

How Much Does Platysmaplasty Cost?

The cost of a neck lift varies widely among practices and depends on several factors. Each surgeon’s fees reflect their experience, the geographic location of the practice, and the specific procedural approach taken. Additionally, the extent of the surgery required to achieve the desired outcomes will heavily influence the price. Anesthesia, facility fees, and post-operative care necessities also play significant roles in determining the final cost.

For the most accurate pricing, prospective patients should schedule a consultation with their chosen surgeon.
