Enhance Your Neckline

Are you tired of always wearing turtlenecks and scarves to cover the loose or flabby skin on your neck? This cosmetic surgery reshapes and tightens the section on the underside of your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." Dr. William Vinyard is a respected cosmetic surgeon and accomplished surgical artist who helps patients refresh their appearance so the outside matches the vibrant spirit within.

What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift in Port Saint Lucie addresses signs of aging in the neck area, including sagging skin, excess fat deposits, muscle laxity, and vertical bands or cords development. It aims to tighten loose skin, reposition or tighten neck muscles, and create a more defined jawline and smoother neck contour, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. By surgically excising the excess skin and fat while using a tightening method to result in a softer neckline, neck lift surgery at Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS) can dramatically enhance your profile. Before you call to schedule your initial consultation, read more about neck lift surgery and the beautiful results it can give you.

My husband and I were impressed with Dr. Vinyard from the moment we met in his office. His warmth, understanding, and patience in answering all our questions were remarkable. After having had two surgeries, a face (cheek lift, eyes, and neck lift) and brachioplasty (arm surgery), I feel like a new woman. I would definitely recommend Dr. Vinyard to everyone. I cannot say enough good things about him. Five stars should be ten stars!

Who Is a Candidate?

Individuals contemplating neck lift surgery in Port Saint Lucie generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by a range of factors, including aging and significant weight loss. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin can produce an older or unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin removal and tightening. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but feel embarrassed by loose skin and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift cosmetic surgery treatment may be recommended.

Your Consultation

In a personalized consultation, Dr. Vinyard will spend 1-1.5 hours discussing the recommended treatment plan and answering your questions about the neck lift. Utilizing TouchMD technology, he analyzes your neck area and aging process, conducts a physical exam, and outlines options. Dr. Vinyard helps you visualize your potential outcome, sharing his personalized treatment outline. Once you have decided on a plan, the patient care coordinator will give you the quote for your treatment and help you navigate the financing process, if necessary.

What Is the Technique?

General anesthesia is used for a neck lift. An incision is placed just in front or behind your ears, and another might be created beneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, neck liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised, and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This skin-tightening method is performed until the desired contour has been attained.

Although sutures are placed at the incision area, scarring should not be noticeable since they were placed under your chin. An injection such as Kybella may also be used to enhance the results. Also, other non-surgical choices can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatment, to create a younger-looking and glowing appearance.

What to Expect

After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate after some healing time has passed. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous movements and activities for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. During this time, button-up tops or loose-fitting clothing are ideal. You should see visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In fact, it has been noted that the neck lift treatment can make one of the most stunning transformations in a person's profile by turning back the hands of time on your appearance.

How much does a neck lift cost?

The cost of your neck lift can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Vinyard. Once he has created your treatment plan, he can estimate costs for the facility, anesthesia, and miscellaneous fees. To make your neck lift affordable, VIPS accepts many payment methods, and we can give you information on low-interest financing.

What about non-surgical options?

Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it hangs or droops. While several non-surgical skin tightening treatments can produce some improvements, surgery offers the most significant improvements to smooth and redefine the contours of your neck. A new and popular treatment called Kybella reduces fat in the upper neck, which causes a double chin, but it does not improve loose skin.

Will I have visible scars?

Your neck lift will start with an incision beneath the chin and two more near the ears. However, these are placed so they are difficult for others to see. Dr. Vinyard makes every effort during your surgery to avoid visible scarring. You will also be given scar care instructions to help your incisions heal properly so they are thin and flat.

Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?

During your consultation, you can mention that you may be considering another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant, in addition to a neck lift. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the best results. If you have any concerns about a weak chin or undefined jawline, talk to Dr. Vinyard so he can create a comprehensive treatment plan.

Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?

Depending on your needs and goals, you may want a neck lift with liposuction. This can help if you have excessive skin and fat pockets in your neck. During your consultation, Dr. Vinyard will help you decide whether a lift, liposuction, or both should be part of your treatment plan.
