AT OUR CENTER’S PARAMUS, NJ LOCATION
An aging neck shows visible signs of maturity, presenting with various combinations of fat excess, skin laxity and muscle weakness. Depending upon your aesthetic concerns and desires and how you present, Dr. Zubowski, a board-certified plastic surgeon, will suggest how to fix the problem, homing in on a neck lift procedure or neck tightening treatment plan that is right for you. A neck lift will produce natural results to fix a turkey wattle neck, excess fat, or too much skin around the neck and jawline. Further, a neck lift can improve your neckline by providing a smoother contour and better-defined jawline.
Liposuction Of The Neck
If your problem is limited to excess fat below the chin and jaw line, and your skin tone is good, then neck liposuction might be the answer. Dr. Zubowski will make one or two small incisions on the underside of the chin and/or earlobe and place a small tube called a “cannula” beneath the skin to remove excess fat and provide a more youthful contour to your neck.
Sagging or “vertical cords” in the neck results from weakening of a thin muscle called the “platysma.” Platysmaplasty is a procedure that allows Dr. Zubowski to tighten these muscle bands to create a smoother neck contour and give you a better-defined jawline. Platysmaplasty can be performed alone or in combination with neck liposuction.
Full Neck Lift Surgery
When there is a large amount of skin in the neck, then full neck lift surgery is generally recommended. Dr. Zubowski will make tiny incisions behind the ears and possibly under the chin; he can then tighten the underlying muscle, remove any excess fat, and lift and re-drape the skin to provide a smoother, more natural contour. Tissue glue is frequently used to affix the skin, minimizing swelling and eliminating drains.
