Non-Surgical Neck Lifts
A non surgical neck lift is performed by using injectables such as Restylane or Botox to provide a lifting and rejuvenating effect. This procedure offers several advantages to those wishing to correct signs of aging on the neck. A non surgical neck lift is not invasive, so there is a lower risk of complications, a shorter recovery period, and lower price tag associated with the procedure. The major drawbacks, however, are that a non surgical neck lift cannot provide results that last as long or are as comprehensive as a traditional, surgical neck lift.
A non surgical neck lift is an excellent option for those individuals who are beginning to experience signs of aging on their neck. If you are not ready to undergo surgery, a non surgical neck lift might be a good option for you. Dr. Furze has helped many patients achieve excellent results through non surgical neck lifts and he will be happy to help you determine whether this treatment will provide the results you desire.
How a Neck Lift is Performed
The way in which a neck lift is performed is similar to a facelift. After the chosen anesthetic has been administered, Dr. Furze makes incisions in front of the earlobe and extending behind the ear. He takes great care to make the incisions within the natural folds of the skin so they will be well concealed after they have healed.
Once he has gained access to the underlying musculature, Dr. Furze begins tightening the skin and muscles until the desired effect is achieved. He will suture the skin and muscles into their new position and trim away any excess skin or fat as needed. During the procedure, Dr. Furze may use a cannula (a thin tube) to suck away excess fat to help achieve an optimal result. Once all of the revisions are made, he will close the incisions with sutures and apply a compression strap to support the healing process.
