A more defined and elegant neckline is possible thanks to Dr. Michael W. Gray’s remarkable new procedure: The Weekend Neck Lift. This procedure tightens the skin of the neck and reduces fat(when indicated) to reveal a more sculpted jawline. It is quick, effective, and has little if any discomfort. So you can have it done on a Friday and be back at work by Monday. Imagine more self-confidence and an improved overall appearance in just one weekend!
Neck Lift: Procedure
During a neck lift, Dr. Gray removes excess skin, fat(when indicated) and changes the shape of the muscles of the neck to make the jawline more defined. If desired, a neck lift can be combined with other procedures to enhance your look. Some of these procedures can be skin resurfacing, cheek augmentation, lip enhancement and more! Discuss your options with Dr. Gray at your complimentary consultation.
Neck Lift: Recovery
Patients experience little if any discomfort and can return to work after the weekend recovery period without bandages. Strenuous activity is restricted for 3 weeks.
When surgical intervention is not desired, the neck can be rejuvenated using technology that tightens skin non-surgically. Through the use of heat, the skin can safely be tightened. The skin tightening effect from these procedures occurs over a one to three month period after the procedure. Therefore, the amount of tightening each patient achieves can not be determined until you heal.
The advantages of non-surgical intervention is that you can perform these procedures with little to no downtime. CO2 Repair, Fraxel, Thermage and SmartLipo MPX alone or in combination with External Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (EUAL) can be used to achieve your goals whether you are trying to maintain tight skin, tighten skin that has become loose, or opting to do more non-surgical or surgical procedures. Which procedure is right for you will be discussed with Dr. Gray during your consultation.
A neck sling is a popular option for people who do not need a full neck lift. During this procedure, Dr. Gray reduces the fat of the neck through External Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction. Next a small 1” incision is made in the hairline behind the ears to tighten the muscles of the neck and produce a more defined jaw line. After the procedure, patients wear an ace wrap for 3 days. SmartLipo MPX can be added if further tightening of skin is desired.
