About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you wearing turtlenecks and scarves all year round to cover the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Plastic surgeon Dr. F. Jorge Gonzalez provides neck lift surgery at his practice in Orlando, FL to eliminate the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery reshapes and tightens the area on the underside of your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a "turkey neck" or "double chin." By surgically excising the loose skin and fat while using a tightening technique to result in a smoother, natural neckline, neck lift surgery at Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery can provide dramatic improvements to your profile. Call our Orlando, FL office to learn more.
"Dr. Gonzalez and his staff is Amazing....I went to Dr. Gonzalez's office back in June last year to get a consultation for a mommy make over. Not only he is certified by the board of Plastic Surgeons but both him and his staff made me feel so comfortable that I never even went for other opinions; I went with my instinct and read his reviews and certifications. The day of the surgery, Dr. Miller (anesthesiologist) was amazing, didn't even felt the IV and to me that was a relief because I am such a baby for needles. I saw Dr. Gonzalez that morning before surgery and explained one more time the procedure.Later that day when I went home both Yiovannie and Dr. Gonzalez kept checking up on me, make sure I was walking, eating and drinking plenty of fluids. They were available on the phone to answer any questions or concerns. Dr. Gonzalez is a perfectionist and when he doesn't see anything he doesn't like he keeps making you come to his office weekly until everything is healing properly. I am 3 months post op and I feel and look amazing, but again because he is a perfectionist I have follow up appointments up to a year!Overall, Dr. Gonzalez is great and I will recommend him hands down to anyone. No complains or complications here!THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!"- V. / Google / Apr 12, 2019

Individuals considering neck lift treatment generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by ranging factors, including aging and significant weight loss. Whatever the reason may be, loose neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight, but you feel embarrassed by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin along the neck, a neck lift surgery may be an ideal solution.
For neck lift surgery, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed just in front or behind your ears, while another one might also be created beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is conducted until the desired contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be noticeable, since they were placed beneath your chin.
What to Expect
After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate in a few days. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. While recovering, loose clothing should be worn. You may notice visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In addition, it has been noted that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most stunning enhancements to an individual's profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a neck lift cost?
Costs for your neck lift surgery will be reviewed in your consultation with Dr. Gonzalez. As soon as he has developed your unique surgical plan, he will be able to estimate prices for the anesthesia, facility, and miscellaneous fees. To make your neck surgery easy to afford, Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery takes several payments methods, plus we can tell you more about how to get low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Neck lift surgery is the best option to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it droops or hangs. Although there are several nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that may give you mild improvements, neck lift surgery offers the most significant improvements to redefine and smooth your neckline.
Will I have visible scars?
Your neck lift will start with one incision beneath the chin, as well as two more close to the ears. These are made so the scars are difficult for others to see. Dr. Gonzalez tries very hard during neck lift surgery to avoid visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will encourage your incisions to heal flat and thin.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, you can bring up that you are thinking about another surgery, like a facelift or fat grafting, along with a neck lift. It's normal for two or more face surgeries to be done together to get your best results. If you are concerned about an undefined jawline or weak chin, tell Dr. Gonzalez so he can develop a plan that meets all your goals.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Based on your concerns and goals, you might want to get a neck lift with liposuction. A lift plus lipo may be best if you are concerned about both loose skin and fat pockets in your neck. Dr. Gonzalez can help you choose whether a lift, lipo, or a combination of both should be included in your surgical plan.
