Neck Lift Surgery in Atlanta, GA
Skin and muscle both lose elasticity and tightness over time with age and the effects of sun damage. Unfortunately, the neck is often one of the first areas to show age. Also, those who may have undergone bariatric surgery or lost a drastic amount of weight may also see sagging skin under the chin and around the neck.
Sagging skin around the neck including slack jowls and the colloquial “double chin” can be eliminated through neck lift surgery. During neck lift surgery, incisions may be made under the chin and around the ears. From there, sagging neck muscles can be tightened and excess fat can be removed through liposuction. Incisions near the ears allow Dr. Burstein to remove any loose skin around the neck to help slim and restore your profile.
Ideal candidates for neck lift surgery are individuals who feel as though they have “jowls,” a double chin, or the appearance of sagging skin under the chin and around the neck. After neck lift surgery in Atlanta, GA most patients are able to return to work within two weeks. Those with more active jobs and/or participate in athletics or other exercise need to wait at least three weeks before returning to more strenuous activity.
