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 Dr. Jules Walters can provide dramatic improvements to the lower section of your face.

Individuals contemplating 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 loose skin and wrinkles along the neck, a cosmetic neck lift surgery may be a recommended answer.

I am extremely pleased with my experience. Dr. Walters is professional, talented, and honest. All of the staff members I encountered in the office were also very kind. I went to Dr. Walters for a breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier with my result. I highly recommend choosing him if you’re interested in this procedure. His passion to help his patients glow with confidence and his drive for perfection shows in his work.
Excellence in all! - I truly had the best experience and results I could hope for from Dr. Walters! My new reconstructed breast almost matched the first go-around, which is difficult to achieve. I had a DIEP flap with an easy to hide abdominal scar. Not all surgeons are able to do them so low, a testimony to his surgical and planning talent. Additionally, his bedside manner is excellent; he really helped me put...
Wonderful place. Incredible staff with attentive bedside manners. Will continue to use Dr. Walters in the future.
So happy I was referred to Dr. Walters. Everything I would have asked for in a doctor for what I wanted accomplished. Very happy with him and his staff.
For neck lift surgery, local anesthesia, 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, neck 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. Combined liposuction can also be utilized. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. Also, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatments, to produce 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 activity for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. While recovering, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should 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 a individual's profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance.
