In Atlanta



Your face is the expressive instrument through which we communicate our emotions to the entire world. Make sure you’re facing the world with your most attractive features. Lax, sagging skin will only become worse as you get older. That’s because your collagen production takes a nosedive as you enter your golden years. Struts of collagen and elastin make up the underlying structure of your visage. As they degrade, so does your sharp and youthful luster. A neck lift can help subtract years from your look by removing lax, excess skin from your decolletage. It will eliminate wrinkles and make you appear taut and young once more!

If you are considering a Neck Lift, come and see Dr. Brian Arslanian at Arslanian Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, GA. Dr. Arslanian is a Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and is ready to work with you.

Lift a Sagging Neck

What is a Neck Lift?

All plastic surgery procedures have a medical term, and for a Neck Lift, it is known as a Lower Rhytidectomy. This procedure can result in a more defined jawline and neck, reducing some of the more obvious signs of aging. Your plastic surgeon will make a discreet incision, typically behind the ears or where it can be hidden in natural skin contours. The excess skin is trimmed away, and the remaining skin is repositioned on the jaw and neck in a more aesthetically pleasing placement. Enduring rejuvenation can be yours when you begin your transformation journey with Dr. Brian Arslanian, who is known as Dr. Hotlanta in the metro Atlanta Area.

Who are the best candidates for a Neck Lift?

Ready for a lift? The ideal candidate for a Neck Lift in Atlanta is one in good health without significant medical problems. It is also very important that every plastic surgery patient has reasonable expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Changes to our faces can have profound effects on our mental wellness. Patients typically have tried non-invasive techniques as well as a professional skincare regimen before pursuing a facelift.

Most of our neck lift patients are forty years old and up. If you’re considering a surgical solution for long-lasting facial rejuvenation, then it pays to not wait too long before pursuing this procedure. It is often said that women in their mid-forties or early fifties still have sufficient skin elasticity to achieve optimum results with the procedure. A typical neck lift will shed seven to ten years. Men rarely seek advice on neck or face lifts before their fifties or early sixties, but those who do will experience greater benefits from surgical facial and neck rejuvenation.

What to expect on the day of Neck Lift surgery

The neck lift is an outpatient procedure. Depending on the extent of surgery and your other medical history, Dr. Arslanian will likely opt to perform the rejuvenation procedure with the patient safely ensconced under general anesthesia. On the morning of surgery, Dr. Arslanian will make his preoperative markings on your neck with a few fine strokes of his felt tip pen. 

After the anesthesia has taken hold, Dr. Arslanian begins his incisions. It is delicate work that will be inconspicuously hidden around the ear and in the hairline. Pulling back and up in a youthful orientation, Dr. Arslanian will then tighten the skin, and pull it into the new position. The excess skin is trimmed away. The incisions are closed. 

In addition, he may do some minor work just under the chin to perform the necessary tightening of the neck muscles and skin. As the surgery concludes, Dr. Arslanian may place temporary drains at the operation site. 

After your compression bandages are carefully applied to your face, you will be awakened from the anesthesia and transferred to the recovery room.

Neck Lift recovery

Within 24 hours of your first incision, you will begin the healing process at home. Dr. Arslanian will prescribe pain medicine to help you through the first week. During your first week of recovery, you will likely be swollen and have some bruising. Patience is the most important prescription. 

Your results can continue to improve over the course of the year. You will keep your head elevated and iced to minimize swelling. After a fortnight of taking it easy, you should be able to go out in public and start wearing makeup again. However, swelling can take a good four to six weeks to resolve. Even then, it can take up to six months for all the swelling to resolve and for scar tissue to soften.
