Sculpt Your Neckline in NJ

A sleek, defined neck can dramatically enhance your overall appearance and contribute to a more youthful look. At the Aydin Center for Plastic Surgery, Skincare, & Lasers, Dr. N. Bill Aydin offers two distinct procedures to sculpt and refine the neck area: the neck lift and neck liposuction. While both procedures aim to improve the neck's appearance, they address different issues and can be performed individually or combined for comprehensive results.

What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, effectively combats aging signs around the jawline and neck area. It is particularly beneficial for those dealing with sagging neck skin, a pronounced double chin, or a "turkey wattle." In performing a neck lift, Dr. Aydin precisely tightens the muscles beneath the skin, excises any redundant skin, and refines the contours of the neck and jawline. The outcome is a noticeably rejuvenated and more sculpted neck profile, enhancing overall facial harmony.

Addressing a Double Chin With Neck Liposuction

Neck liposuction refines the neck’s contour and is particularly beneficial for reducing localized fat deposits underneath the chin and along the jawline. This procedure is ideal for patients who have good skin elasticity and are looking primarily to eliminate a double chin that isn’t responding to diet and exercise.

Are You a Candidate for a Neck Procedure?

Ideal candidates for a neck lift and/or liposuction should be in good health and non-smokers. Good skin elasticity is crucial for those undergoing liposuction to ensure the skin adjusts well to the new contours. These procedures are suited for individuals troubled by a "turkey neck," double chin, or sagging skin that diet and exercise cannot address.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Neck Lift

The neck lift begins with small incisions typically made behind the ears and under the chin. Through these incisions, Dr. Aydin accesses the platysma (neck muscle) and other underlying tissues, which he then tightens and secures. As Dr. Aydin trims away excess skin, the remaining skin is re-draped over the newly enhanced contours, creating a more defined neck and jawline. The results are subtle yet impactful, providing a naturally youthful, rejuvenated appearance.

Neck Liposuction

Dr. Aydin makes a small incision during neck liposuction, often beneath the chin or behind the ears. A small tube called a cannula is then inserted, and through a controlled back-and-forth motion, excess fat is broken down and suctioned out. This technique allows for precise targeting of fat deposits, significantly improving the neck's profile without the need for extensive surgery.

Combined Procedure

Combining a neck lift with liposuction can provide comprehensive results for patients looking to address both excess skin and fat. This combination is often recommended for patients who want significant rejuvenation without undergoing a full facelift. When performed together, the liposuction reduces fat deposits, and the neck lift tightens the skin and underlying muscles, leading to a more dramatic improvement in the neck’s appearance. One or both procedures can also be combined with a facelift for the ultimate facial and neck rejuvenation.

I absolutely love this office and the staff. I’ve been a patient for two years, from surgery to routine upkeep. The attention received is so personal. I never feel rushed and can always get a hold of someone whenever I have a question. Dr. Aydin is so personable and professional.

Neck Lift + Liposuction Recovery in NJ

Recovering from a neck lift or liposuction requires a period of rest and diligent post-operative care. Typically, patients are able to resume work and daily routines within two weeks following the procedure. It's normal to experience swelling and bruising, which generally diminish over a few weeks. Dr. Aydin gives comprehensive aftercare instructions to facilitate a smooth and quick recovery process.

It's recommended that patients wear a compression garment to aid in the healing of the neck region and to help reduce swelling. To ensure proper healing, patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous activities for several weeks. Adhering strictly to Dr. Aydin's post-operative care guidelines is essential for obtaining optimal results.
