Neck Lift in Washington, DC
Dr. Yousefi offers neck lift surgery for patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
If you feel like your neck is out of proportion when compared to the rest of your face or you experience sagging in this area, a neck lift, or platysmaplasty, may be your answer to a tighter, firmer, more proportioned neck.
The neck lift (platysmaplasty) is a family of treatments that can address problems with the fat, muscle, and skin of your neck and jaw line, such as a fleshy neck “jowls,” platysma or neck “bands,” and “turkey waddle” or double chin.
How Is a Neck Lift Performed?
The neck lift procedure is designed for people who have excess fat around the neck but have good skin tone and are not yet ready for a full face-neck lift. This operation includes liposuction of the neck, manual removal of fat underneath the muscles and tightening of the neck muscles under the chin.
It is important to note that excess skin cannot be removed with this procedure. If excess skin is the problem, a face-neck lift may be considered.
Dr. Yousefi begins with a one-inch incision just under the chin and removes the skin from the fat and muscle. He then performs liposuction to remove some of the fat. Once the fat is removed, he tightens the muscles and releases any neck cords.
What Can I Expect After a Neck Lift?
Most people do not complain of discomfort, but some report discomfort around the ears. Pain medication can be administered to aid in comfort. Most neck lift patients can return to light work after seven to 10 days.
