A neck lift in Southlake Texas surgically tightens and removes excess skin from the neck. Fat can also be removed if necessary, and underlying neck muscles which often separate with age can be tightened to reduce the “bands” of the neck. A neck lift helps define the jawline and recreates a more youthful appearance.
A drainage tube may be placed during surgery, and this is removed approximately 1-2 days after surgery. You will need to rest and sleep with your head slightly elevated, and you will wear a facial compression garment to decrease swelling.
