Neck Lift is a plastic surgery procedure that helps to reduce the appearance of loose and sagging skin of the neck and jaw line. This procedure can be done in conjunction with other procedures such as Face Lift.
Am I a Candidate?
Typically, patients over the age of 18 who are exhibiting signs of aging specifically around the neck and jaw line are candidates for a Neck Lift. It is important to discuss your health history candidly with Dr. Harrell as this is an important part of identifying you as a candidate for this procedure. In order to properly determine if you are a candidate for this procedure, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Harrell.
Your Consultation in Tampa Bay
When you arrive at the Fountain of Youth Institute®, you will be greeted by our caring staff. During your consultation, you will meet with Dr. Harrell to discuss your specific areas of concern and together develop a treatment plan that will provide you with your desired results.
The consultation is a great time to ask any questions about the procedure, expected recovery process and to address any concerns you might have.
Recovering From a Neck Lift
You will be given specific instructions as it relates to the post operative period, but generally you can expect a few days of discomfort followed by several weeks of restricted physical activity. Pain medication is prescribed to you prior to surgery to minimize your discomfort. Many of our patients return to work within a couple of weeks but strenuous physical activity is limited for several weeks. Any concerns you have about the recovery process should be discussed with Dr. Harrell.
