The neck is often one of the first places to belie the passing of years, with loose skin that gives the impression of a double chin and jowls. By melting away small pockets of fat and tightening and firming skin in the neck area, we can effectively turn back the clock on your appearance and give you a sleeker profile from the chin to the shoulders. There are many good reasons to consider a neck lift from the New York Group for Plastic Surgery.
Unlike traditional lift procedures, a laser neck lift is not surgery. This means no prominent incisions (and post-procedural scarring), no general anesthesia and minimal discomfort after treatment. This procedure can be an excellent choice for both men and women that aren’t yet ready for surgery, but want to achieve a more youthful look that will ward off the need for more invasive procedures until much later.
Takes Less than One Hour
A laser neck lift typically takes less than one hour to complete. Most of our procedures are performed using local anesthesia, which contributes to the shorter treatment time and recovery period. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you can return home the same day as your appointment.
Because the laser neck lift does not involve any major incisions, post-procedural discomfort is relatively minimal. The recovery after treatment is short, with many patients returning to regular activities within a couple of days. Bruising and swelling may persist for 3-5 days after the procedure and can easily be managed with over-the-counter medication and ice packs.
Results from a laser neck lift can be seen right away and continue to improve over time. Because the procedure stimulates collagen production, skin will gradually appear smoother and more vibrant in the treatment area, while loose skin will tighten and smooth away telltale lines and creases. The procedure offers long-lasting results, although touch-ups may be required from time to time to maintain the best possible results.
Younger patients that are already distressed with the signs of aging in the neck area have a non-surgical option for reversing the aging process. A laser neck lift offers excellent results without extensive incisions, general anesthesia or an extended recovery period. The procedure is relatively quick and discomfort during and after is minimal.
