Neck Lift

Neck Lift Introduction

Your neck is often a neglected part of your appearance. However, as the signs of aging become more visible with each passing year, you’ll notice that your neck becomes more and more of an aesthetic concern as wrinkles and sagging skin become more prominent. A neck lift can reverse these impacts, providing a more youthful contour. If you are interested in receiving a neck lift, consider visiting the team at Edelstein Cosmetics.

Located in the heart of Toronto, we have four plastic surgeons at the helm. We help patients achieve a more youthful appearance and improve confidence in the way they look and feel about themselves. We look forward to becoming part of your aesthetic journey.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, or cervicoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to address the visible signs of aging on the neck and lower jawline. This procedure removes the most visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck area, and that is why it is so highly sought after globally.

What’s the first step?

The first step of receiving a neck lift in Toronto at Edelstein Cosmetic is scheduling a consultation with our in-house facial experts, Dr. Fialkov and Dr Hong. Your consultation with our plastic surgeons is important, as it will provide you with the information you need to determine whether a neck lift is suitable for you. In addition, your physiology, age, and other factors are required to devise the right neck lift for you. For example, your age will inform how our plastic surgeons perform your surgery. Part of our signature neck lift technique involves a customizable, graded treatment approach where the surgery is scaled to each patient’s needs. 

A patient in their 40s may receive satisfactory results from a neck lift alone, while older individuals with jowls will typically require a neck/lower facelift procedure. Some patients may require a full facelift in order to address problems affecting the neck, jowls, and lower and mid-face (brows must be treated separately). Dr. Fialkov and Dr. Hong’s graded approach avoids unnecessary surgical steps and can minimize scarring.

 Male and female patients receive neck lifts that are tailored to their physiology. Male skin is generally thicker and heavier. It also receives a greater blood supply due to the processes responsible for growing facial hair.

You’ll be asked to avoid the use of medications and supplements that increase bruising and bleeding (Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Excedrin, fish oil, etc.) for two weeks before your surgery. Certain supplements (such as bromelin and arnica Montana) can help prepare patients for surgery and quicken recovery.

What to Expect On the Day of Neck Lift Surgery

The main difference between the various neck lift techniques used in cosmetic surgery comes from incision length and lift depth. Our two facial surgeons are skilled at providing many different types of lifts and use high levels of experience to tailor their surgical approach to a patient’s unique needs. They couple their expert judgment with the most advanced technologies to offer unparalleled results and operational safety. All of this comes together to form their unique neck lift—a modified deep-plane neck lift that improves the appearance of the lower face and neck. Similar techniques are applied for the mid-face.

The use of tissue glue, the same kind used in advanced open heart surgeries, makes traditional surgical drains redundant. Tissue glue seals the small blood vessels that cause bruising and eliminates the need for drains. It dissolves after roughly one week, allowing patients to avoid the risks (infection, scarring, pain, malfunction) accompanying surgical drains.

Our surgeon’s emphasis on deeper tissue surgery aids recovery and provides longer-lasting results. We are able to offer this modified version of the traditional deep plane neck lift by shortening incision lines and using endocrine-assisted tissue securing.

Platysma bands are vertical skin folds that develop in the front of the neck. These bands typically develop with age and are made up of superficial muscles. We treat this area by employing both liposuction and muscle-tightening techniques.

A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that reverses muscle drooping and laxity that occurs with age. By operating underneath the muscles, the tension of the neck’s deeper tissues is improved. The tissue is repositioned to approximate its original position in a patient’s youth and excess tissue is removed.

Our surgeons create a treatment plan for your neck problems depending on the cause. In cases with problematic neck cords, a midline muscle tuck through a tiny incision underneath the chin is performed. Fat deposits underneath the chin are treated with liposuction. For more significant neck changes, a lateral neck muscle lift may be added, accomplished by making an incision behind the ear. In all cases, a neck lift requires general anesthesia.

Neck Lift Recovery

Post-surgery, you may experience minor swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the neck area. We will provide you with pain medication and specific instructions on how to care for your incisions, manage pain, and minimize swelling. 

It is recommended that you rest and avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks after the procedure. You may need to wear a compression garment initially to support the neck and aid in healing as the swelling subsides.
