As with all of Dr. Sajan's procedures, your neck lift surgery will be performed in our state-licensed surgery center. Depending on the procedures you're having done, you may be given a general (deep sleep) anesthesia or a local anesthesia and intravenous sedation. You can expect the procedure(s) to last approximately two to three hours, depending on the extent of work to be done.
During surgery, incisions will be made at precise points on your face and neck, strategically placed to minimize your risk of scarring. They will be well-hidden within the hairline and facial contours, so your final result is completely discreet. From there, Dr. Sajan may redistribute or suction out fatty deposits, as well as tighten, reposition and remove loose skin. The actual alterations will depend on your needs and skin quality. For example, if your skin is in relatively good condition, you may require only a simple liposuction procedure to achieve your desired results. Conversely, if you'd like a dramatic transformation, Dr. Sajan will tighten and reposition the underlying muscles and remove excess skin.
Once your neck lift is complete, Dr. Sajan will perform your complementary procedures, as discussed during your initial consultation. For example, many of our patients decide to combine their neck lift with a facelift, brow lift or eyelid surgery, completely rejuvenating their facial appearance for a younger and more attractive overall look. Regardless of the procedures performed, you can be assured that Dr. Sajan will make sure your incisions are discreetly placed, and the correction looks extremely natural, never artificial or overdone. Once your surgeries are complete, Dr. Sajan will close the incisions with very fine, dissolvable sutures and you will be sent home to begin the recovery process.
