Neck lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that offers a rejuvenated look to the neck which may have begun to sag due to aging, stress or environmental factors. The unfortunately named, “turkey neck” is a common aesthetic issue that may arrive as time passes. Toronto Plastic Surgeon Dr. Daniel Martin has performed a vast number of neck lifts which offer his patients a more youthful and pleasant appearance. He also offers a selection of other facial rejuvenation procedures, including eyelid surgery, facelift, and brow lift in Toronto.
A neck lift procedure may consist of all or a combination of these three methods.
- Cervicoplasty, which is the process of removing excess skin that has been produced over time.
- Platysmaplasty, which removes and tightens the neck muscles.
- Liposuction, which is the reduction and elimination of excess fat under the skin.
Toronto Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Daniel Martin, will guide you through the process of determining which methods are best suited for you. All of Dr. Martin’s Toronto plastic surgery patients are different and thus require customized treatment specific to them. The goal of the procedure is always to create a healthy natural outcome, and this comes with experience and determining which specific procedures apply to each situation.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Martin will speak with you regarding your goals and wants and discuss with you in detail the best course of action for your procedure. Skin elasticity, fat deposits, muscle strength and more will all be assessed followed by a recommendation. This may come as a single neck lift procedure, or possibly as a part of a greater process, which may include facelift, brow lift, and eyelid procedures as well.
Is a Toronto Neck Lift procedure a good fit for me?
All patients are unique and as such should be examined situationally. This is why the consultation process is so critical to the success of the procedure. As a Toronto Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Daniel Martin takes the discovery assessment process very seriously. It allows both parties to determine if patient goals are reasonable, what the procedure will yield, and what methods are best used during the process.
Some of the physical attributes that good candidates have include:
- Reduced skin elasticity
- A double chin/reduced jaw line definition
- Sagging skin in the neck and face
If you are unsure if you are a good candidate for neck lift cosmetic surgery, call Dr. Martin to book your consultation.
Are my Toronto Neck Lift surgery expectations reasonable?
As a Toronto Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Daniel Martin will discuss in detail your goals and expectations to determine if they are healthy and realistic. Being honest and forthright about expectations and fears is the best way to gain an understanding of what you should expect as a result of the neck lift procedure. The purpose of this procedure is to give you a rejuvenated look and a youthful and healthy appearance. As long as expectations fall within that scope of understanding, you likely have reasonable expectations.
How long does it take to recover?
Dr. Daniel Martin’s Toronto neck lift patients generally require about 14 to 21 days of recovery time before they are able to resume their normal activities. This can certainly vary from client to client depending on the patient’s physical makeup and any other procedures that might have been added in the process.
