Neck Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation in Baton Rouge

Neck lift surgery, also known as platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure that is carried out to remove excess fat and skin from the neck region. The goal is to address age-related creasing and wrinkling in this area, as well as achieve a slimmer, smoother profile by tightenign the neck skin. Baton Rouge Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Theunissen, is a specialist in cosmetic neck lift procedures in order to give both men and women a more attractive and youthful looking appearance.

Due to aging, the muscles in the neck region can become loose and drop underneath the skin. Neck lift surgery addresses this issue by lifting and tightening the muscles of the neck and skin in order to restore the original youthful position. Dr. Taylor Theunissen uses advanced surgical techniques and the latest methods to achieve the best possible results with minimal risk of scarring or side effects. He has helped countless patients in Baton Rouge and across Louisiana eliminate visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck through neck list surgery.

What Does A Neck Lift Procedure Treat?

  • Loose neck skin
  • Excessive fat and skin in the lower face that creates the appearance of jowls
  • Excess fat deposits under the chin
  • Muscle banding in the neck region that creates abnormal contours

Although neck lift can achieve dramatic results as a restorative procedure, it’s important to note that it does not stop the aging process or alter your fundamental appearance. Neck lift procedures are performed surgically because nonsurgical rejuvenation cannot accomplish the same results.

Ideal Candidates for Neck Lift Surgery

The best candidates for neck lift surgery are individuals who are of good general health and harbor realistic expectations. You may be an ideal candidate if the following three things are present:

  • You desire a sleeker neck with a distinct jawline separating your neck from your face
  • You are highly motivated about making the change
  • Close to your ideal weight and not planning on losing a significant amount of weight.

Dr. Theunissen’s Approach

When performing neck lift surgery, Dr. Taylor makes safety a priority. The highly skilled and professional anesthesiologist at the Theunissen Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will make sure that anesthesia is administered safely and you are monitored closely throughout the entire surgery. Dr. Theunissen maintains a state of the art in-office operating room with modern monitoring equipment that is commensurate with the highest hospital standards. During the procedure, he’ll take the time to achieve the best possible results, focusing on safety and the patient’s expectations.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE

Each neck lift procedure is different depending on the condition of the patient’s neck, as well as the goals of the procedure. Dr. Taylor Theunissen can adjust the specifics of the surgery in order to meet the patient’s individual goals. In some cases, sufficient neck rejuvenation can be accomplished using just liposuction. In other cases, repositioning of the neck skin will be needed in order to achieve a contoured neck. Dr. Theunissen uses smaller incisions that are better camouflaged behind the ears, under the chin, or within the natural creases of the neck. Fatty deposits are removed through these incisions using liposuction or direct excision. Once the lift is complete Dr. Taylor will meticulously close the incisions, clean the surgical site, bandage it, and keep it sanitary in order to promote proper healing.

AFTER SURGERY

After the procedure, your surgeon will provide instructions for aftercare to ensure a healthy recovery process. Patients will need to rest over the first few days as well as avoid any actions or movements that can cause discomfort or stress in the neck. It’s important to wear loose and comfortable clothing throughout the recovery duration. Any accessories that may irritate the neck should be avoided.

The majority of patients are back up to their normal routine within just 1-2 weeks. Until the surgeon gives a green light, patients should not overexert themselves. Labor intensive activities such as carrying heavy objects should be avoided for a couple of weeks till the neck is properly healed. How long it takes to fully recover will vary from one patient to the other, as well as the specifics of the procedure. To ensure that everything goes well after neck rejuvenation surgery, patients should strictly adhere to the instructions provided by their surgeon.
