As men and women age, it is common to experience loosening of the neck muscles, as well as excess, sagging skin. A neck lift with Dr. Robbins’ in Nashville and Franklin, TN can improve this condition, taking years off your appearance. The result is a younger and fitter look, and can make you appear as if you have lost weight.
First, Mayo-Clinic trained, board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., will consult with you to determine realistic expectations for the surgery. Once the day of the procedure is set, Dr. Robbins will perform one of two surgery techniques. To remove excess skin, a cervicoplasty will be used; whereas a platysmaplasty is performed to tighten the neck muscles. Excess fat may be removed through liposuction.
This procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia and recovery time lasts a few weeks, depending on the extent of your surgery. A thin tube may be placed underneath your skin to assist with drainage and healing. To learn more about what to expect, see the before and after photos below:
