Smooth, soft, and defined – the appearance of the neck contributes to youthfulness and facial harmony. Specialized techniques can soften severe features, define lost angles and reveal a graceful and youthful silhouette.
Whether you have early or advanced signs of aging in the neck area, Dr. Few has the expertise needed to make you look your best with among the best neck lift Chicago has to offer. A traditional neck lift involves making incisions behind the ears to pull up excess skin.
A less invasive lift under the chin (submental) is possible to treat neck bands and minimal skin drooping. Submental liposuction removes excess fat from under the chin. Combining one or more of these may deliver the best neck lift result.
During your consultation, Dr. Few will perform an evaluation to determine the level of skin laxity and which treatment method will best meet your goals.
At TFI we have proven success using ultherapy, an innovative non-surgical ultrasound technology to tighten and lift face and/or neck tissues and skin. Ask Dr. Few if you are a good candidate for these advanced treatments alone or in combination with a surgical lift.
Dr. Few will use either oral, IV or general anesthesia so that you remain comfortable during your Chicago neck lift. Oral anesthesia procedures are performed on-site at The Few Institute in a fully certified procedure room.
A neck lift is often part of our Chicago facelift procedure. A neck lift can also be a stand-alone procedure for the right person. This involves an incision placed under the chin and/or behind the ears to tighten the underlying muscles of the neck and reposition sagging skin. This approach does not typically produce the same level of result as a facelift, but it can be a nice alternative for the patient with moderate aging changes.
Dr. Few closes his incisions with sutures, skin adhesives or surgical clips. Once healed, your incision line will be well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the face.
The visible improvements of your Chicago neck lift will appear as the bruising and swelling subside. The healing process depends on the type of procedure or combination of procedures you have and your individual ability to heal. Dr. Few is happy to answer any questions you have about the healing process and wants to help you achieve the best neck lift results possible.
