The progression of time changes our bodies in many different ways. Eventually, we’ll begin to see the signs of aging appear in the form of loose, saggy skin and wrinkles throughout the facial region. Like the eyes and face, these changes appear prominently in the neck as well. With age, the skin becomes more thin and less elastic. This causes the skin in the area to become loose and develop a saggy appearance. In such cases, a neck lift performed by Dr. Demetri can help redefine your facial profile.
A neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure that is designed to help eliminate loose, saggy skin that tends to accumulate around the neck as we get older. This surgery also involves repairing underlying muscle structures in the neck to provide an uplifted and more youthful appearance. When performing this surgery, Dr. Demetri’s goal is to sculpt the contours of the neck to better fit the proportions of the face.
It is a safe and effective procedure that’s performed on an outpatient basis. This means those undergoing this procedure can safely return home the same day it is performed. Before undergoing a facelift, however, it is essential that you schedule an appointment with Dr. Demetri to find out if you’d make a good candidate for the surgery.
If you’re thinking about undergoing neck lift surgery, a consultation is the first step in determining if you are a good candidate. Patients who have loose saggy skin, stubborn fatty deposits, and vertical lines or bands can benefit from a neck lift. Ideally, patients should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations. During your consultation, Dr. Demetri will perform an examination of your body and ask about your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for neck lift surgery.

Extremely professional, wonderful bedside manner. Listened to what I was looking for and asked questions to make sure I got the results I wanted. Followed up with me afterward to ensure I was happy. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Demetri!!
A neck lift is an invasive surgical procedure that requires the use of an anesthetic and incisisions. Dr. Demetri will begin by administering the chosen anesthetic to the treatment area. After it has taken effect, he will then make the necessary incision in the treatment area. In a traditional neck lift, the incision begins in the hairline, near the sideburn, and continues around the ear toward the back of the hairline.
After gaining access to the underlying tissues, Dr. Demetri will sculpt the neck by removing excess fat and skin and tighten the platysma muscle. After the corrections are made, he will pull the remaining skin around the newly formed contours of the neck and close the incisions.
After the procedure is completed, it’s normal to experience some swelling, bruising, and general discomfort in the treatment area. These issues are temporary and will subside as you heal. It’s important that you take time off work and strenuous physical activities after undergoing a neck lift. Dr. Demetri will help guide you through the recovery process to ensure optimal postoperative results.
A neck lift can help restore a more youthful and rested appearance as well as help you reclaim your lost confidence. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of a neck lift, don’t hesitate to contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Demetri today.
