Neck Lift | Cheek Lift - Northern Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC
The board certified plastic surgeons at The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery serving Northern Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC perform neck lift and cheek lift procedures that can dramatically reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the face.
As we age, fat deposits and wrinkles accumulate around the neck and our skin loses tone and begins to sag. Thanks to the elasticity of our skin, sagging skin in the neck can be corrected with neck lift or cheek lift surgery by gently pulling back the skin and tightening loose muscles around the neck. Both neck lifts and cheek lifts are a variation of a facelift.
Neck Lift Procedure:
Sagging jowls, loose neck skin and fat accumulation under the chin may be corrected with a neck lift or cheek lift. The incision begins in front of the ear lobe and wraps around behind the ear ending in the lower scalp.
Fat deposits under the neck can be removed by inserting a small cannula (hollow tube) beneath the skin to break up the fat and give the neck a youthful, more natural profile.
Neck Lift / Check Lift Recovery:
Recovery after your surgery takes place over a few weeks, during which time a compressive bandage is worn around the neck. Swelling and bruising may be noticeable for up to ten days after the procedure. Patients are typically able to return to work within 7 to 14 days.
You can trust the surgeons at The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery to provide each patient the highest levels of professional care backed by a staff of trained medical professionals dedicated to your safety and well being.
