Neck Lift Overview
If you have noticed that lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin have cast a shadow over the natural beauty of your facial features, a neck lift – especially when combined with a facelift – can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
At Dr. In Vitolo’s practice, a traditional neck lift is performed in HIS state-of-the-art facilities and using cutting-edge technology. Dr. Vitolo’s board certified anesthesiologist will administer a general anesthetic. Depending on the type of surgery to be performed the surgery usually takes between one to three hours. By doing so, Dr. Vitolo will reshape your neck, repair neck muscles, and design a more defined, smoother, and more youthful contour for your neck.
The recovery time after a neck lift varies from patient to patient, but most of Dr. Vitolo’s clients can expect a rapid return to normal within a few days to a week or so.
Types of Neck Lift
While traditional neck lifts have been around for years, there are also minimally-invasive, scar less alternatives. During your first consultation with Dr. Vitolo, you will be able to discover more of the options available to you.
Sling Neck Lift
A Sling neck lift is an extremely efficient alternative to traditional neck lifts. However, unlike these procedures, Sling neck lifts are minimally invasive treatments that don’t involve LONG INcisions or extensive scarring.
During a Sling neck lift, Dr. Vitolo will perform two small incisions, one behind each ear. He will then pass an extremely fine suture in a tunnel created under the neck, the extremities of which are secured to the strong tissue behind the ears. Sling neck lifts are extremely long-lasting and efficiently deliver a clean neck contour.
