Dr. Bidros offers neck lift surgery for Houston area patients who are unsatisfied with the look and feel of their neck. Sagging skin, pockets of fat under the chin, and wrinkles along the neck can be corrected with neck lift surgery, which removes loose skin, and in some cases, uses liposuction to smoothen fatty areas. This skin tightening procedure is sometimes all that is needed to give the face a fresh appearance, without having to undergo a facelift surgery. During the consultation, Dr. Bidros will assess the neck and chin area and determine which cosmetic facial procedure will best meet the patient's overall aesthetic goals.

During a neck lift procedure, which is performed under general anesthesia, an incision is generally made under the chin, and in some cases, behind or in frong of the lower section of the ear. The skin is pulled up and tightly sutured. In cases where extreme laxity is present, the appropriate amount of loose skin will first be trimmed away. If the patient has fatty areas that need to be removed with liposuction, Dr. Bidros will typically perofrm this first, before the skin tightening occurs. The underlying neck muslces are pulled tight and the overlying skin re-draped to achieve a slimmer, more tihter contour.
A neck lift typically takes between 1-2 hours to complete. After surgery, patients can expect some bruising and swelling, and they will feel tightness in the neck area as the skin asjusts to its new position. Once the swelling goes away, patietns can usually see their results immediately. It does take several months for optimal results to appear. The neck will slowly regain a normal look and feel, including a return of sensation. Patients love their profile after this surgery!

Things to Consider
Neck or chin?
Excessive skin laxity can generally only be addressed with a surgical skin tightening procedure. While there are some nonsurgical treatments that have proven to help eliminate fat and help tighten the neck, these typically only work on mild laxity cases. Some patients will see visible issues with their neck, but the problem actually be related to a weak or recessed chin. Sometimes, a chin implant, or chin reshping using genioplsty, can help improve one's profile and create a more defined contour. Whether you need a neck lift, neck liposuction, or chin augmentation can be addressed during the initial consultation once an exam has been completed.
