What is a face and neck lift?

When signs of aging make you feel less than confident, face and neck lift surgery can create a more attractive and youthful appearance in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Chip Cole and the cosmetic professionals at Oculus Plastic Surgery can tighten the muscles that extend from the lower neck up across the jawline. The result is a more contoured look you love.

Over time, muscles loosen and the area under the chin becomes lax. If this is the case, Dr. Cole may recommend neck liposuction and Platysmaplasty to address the under-chin area. Our experienced staff deeply understands facial anatomy and uses refined skills to create a natural appearance. Schedule a visit to learn if this popular solution might be right for you.

Who is a candidate for face and neck lift surgery?

Candidates for face and neck lift surgery have visibly loose skin in the lower face and neck region. Loose skin and underlying muscles are usually caused by factors like age and significant weight loss. No matter the reason, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. If you are at a steady weight but feel challenged by signs of aging, surgery may be a suitable option. Dr. Cole can perform a health assessment and make sure you qualify for this procedure.

What to expect during face and neck lift surgery

Platysmaplasty is performed through a one-inch incision made just beneath the chin. The platysma muscle is tightened, like a corset, and reattached along the neckline. If liposuction is needed in the neck area, the fat is removed through the same incision. Platysmaplasty involves the neck area only. It does not include the jowls or anything above the jawline. To achieve the best results, a lower facelift can be performed with the Platysmaplasty to smooth the jowls.

How long is recovery after face and neck lift surgery?

Recovery times vary based on the techniques chosen during a consultation, but most patients are back to their normal routines within 2 to 3 weeks. Swelling, bruising, and some discomfort are a normal part of recovery and are alleviated by medications. Oculus Plastic Surgery can create an individualized recovery plan for each patient based on their needs. Patients are encouraged to listen to rest and take things slowly as they recover.

Face and neck lift FAQs

Which surgical technique is best for me?

Dr. Chip Cole will choose a surgical technique based on your skin laxity as well as cosmetic concerns and goals. We also take into consideration your age, body type, and overall health. Our staff can explain the different surgical options when you come in for a face and neck lift consultation.

Should I get a surgical or nonsurgical facelift?

Though some people turn to wrinkle relaxers and fillers to appear more youthful, these methods are temporary and don't create long-lasting results. Oculus Plastic Surgery always recommends surgery for patients who want a more significant transformation. Our goal is to lift and tighten sagging muscles to re-contour your jawline.

When is the best time to schedule a face and neck lift?

Face and neck lift surgery usually takes several hours to complete, so we recommend scheduling your procedure at a time when you don't have any other pressing engagements in Atlanta, GA. Also, if you're planning to go on vacation, we recommend having your face and neck lift after the trip. We can advise you further during an assessment.
