Necklift

Artistry and Caring for a Masterpiece Called You

Male Neck Lift

A great deal of media attention has been given to the contour of the male neck and jawline. Social media is full of videos using fillers to achieve Brad Pitt like results. While woman see aging in the face men tend to see aging in the neck.

Contour improvements of this area can be achieved with a number of techniques depending on your presentation.

If the neck contour is reasonable but the jawline or chin is poorly defined fillers can be placed at the angle of the mandible and in the chin. A chin implant can also add that needed projection through a small incision with a quick recovery.

Younger men with double chins and indistinct jawlines are often good candidates for liposuction of the neck. Fat can also be transferred to the jawline and angle of the jaw to create a stronger appearance to the face. A chin implant can be placed at the time of liposuction as well to achieve better proportions.

If the fullness below the chin is not just fat, manipulation of the muscles of the central neck can be done to achieve a sharper chin neck angle. This can be done through a small incision under the chin if the skin quality is good. If the skin is loose incisions can be placed behind the ear in cosmetically hidden locations to allow for removal of the skin.

If there are signs of aging in the face, the neck lift is a routine part of the facelift. This operation can be combined with fat grafting to restore a more youthful appearance to the face and neck. Attention to the hairline and contours of the ear are critical in male facial surgery as we do not have the advantage of altering our hairstyles or wearing make up to camouflage poor scarring.

Necklift Recovery

Although the recovery is related to the specific operation you undergo, contouring of the neck has a relatively easy and quick recovery. Generally the skin of the neck is made numb by the procedure and discomfort is perceived more as tightness. A compressive dressing is used for the first two weeks. This helps to prevent fluid collections and minimize swelling but most people report feeling more comfortable while wearing it. Stiches are removed at day 5 under the chin and day 10 if they are placed behind the ear.
Most men will return to work by a week to ten days. Limited activity is recommended for the first two weeks and individual guidance will be given by Dr Kessler after that period.

Results are obvious immediately but continue to improve over the following three months.
