Facelift / Neck Lift
Facelift and neck lift procedures can turn back the hands of time and beautifully renew your appearance. Dr. Kevin Cook is experienced with facial and neck rejuvenation treatments that can smooth out wrinkles, eliminate excess skin, and give the face and neck a more youthful and firm look. These procedures are two of our most popular surgical treatment options at Midland Plastic Surgery Center, and Dr. Cook always focuses on creating results that look natural.
Benefits of Facelift & Neck Lift
Facelift and neck lift surgery offer patients a number of benefits, including:
- Reduction of facial lines, wrinkles, and creases
- Elimination of excess skin and a “jowling” appearance
- Toned and tightened facial/neck skin for a firmer, more youthful appearance
- Improved the contours of the chin and neck
Dr. Cook custom-tailors facelift and neck lift treatments to align with the cosmetic goals of the individual patient. Though these procedures can be performed separately, some patients choose to have a facelift and neck lift performed simultaneously, depending on their ultimate needs and goals. Others choose to combine one or both of these procedures with an additional cosmetic surgery, such as a brow lift or facial implants, for an even more comprehensive rejuvenation. To learn more about how a facelift or neck lift may help you address your aesthetic concerns, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Cook today.
During the consultation process, Dr. Cook will review your medical history, perform a physical exam, and determine your candidacy for either facelift or neck lift surgery. Dr. Cook takes special care to listen to your individual expectations and desires, and will carefully answer all of your questions. He will explain all aspects of both procedures to help you determine if they are the right options for your needs.
Facelift & Neck Lift Procedure
For both facelift and neck lift surgery, Dr. Cook will carefully make incisions in inconspicuous areas to reduce the appearance of any residual scarring. Incisions are typically created along the hairline, in the creases behind the ear, or underneath the chin. Dr. Cook will remove excess skin, tighten underlying facial and/or neck muscles, and pull the remaining skin taut to provide a smoother, more youthful appearance.
For some patients who are considering neck rejuvenation, liposuction may be all that’s needed to achieve their goals. Dr. Cook will determine which technique is ideal for your needs during the initial consultation.
Recovery And Results
Patients will experience some swelling and bruising after their procedure, though any post-operative discomfort can be controlled with medication. Elevating your head and neck as much as possible during the days after surgery can also aid in the healing process. Most patients are able to return to work within one to two weeks, and feel comfortable attending social functions after two or three weeks. At this time, you can typically see the initial improvements from your surgery, though your results will continue to improve as healing progresses and any residual swelling dissipates.
Facelift and neck lift surgery has helped patients across the globe achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance with results that last for years!
