What is a Neck Lift?


When you dislike a certain aspect of your appearance, it can negatively affect your life in a variety of ways. For one, it can make you feel less than attractive. And this can lead to a whole host of negative things, such as a lack of self-confidence and an unwillingness to live life to the fullest. If you are unhappy with the way that your neck has been affected by the aging process, it may be time to consider a neck lift. A neck lift procedure has the potential to significantly improve your appearance, as well as your overall quality of life. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure done to improve the appearance of the neck.

During the neck lift procedure, Dr. Katzen can improve or correct such conditions as a double chin, jowls or an aging neck caused by an excess of loose skin and a collection of excess neck fat. A neck lift is an outpatient procedure that is performed by Dr. Katzen in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite. The patient may be given IV sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the situation. In some cases, neck liposuction is used to remove fat from the neck. In many cases, Dr. Katzen will tighten or restructure the neck muscles. He may also remove any excess neck skin and pull the neck tight. Of course, the details of each neck lift procedure vary from patient to patient, as no two candidates are exactly alike. The techniques used during the neck lift procedure will depend on a variety of factors, such as the patient’s wants and needs, as well as the condition of the individual neck.

Once you have fully healed from your neck lift procedure, you can enjoy the results. Many people find that their self-confidence improves, since they no longer have to deal with an aspect of their appearance that they don’t like.
