With his wide-ranging knowledge of plastic surgery procedures, board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Franklyn Elliott can achieve the ultimate objectives of anti-aging rejuvenation. He utilizes traditional and innovative techniques that lessen facelift scars while providing safe, noticeable enhancement, maintenance of a subtle, natural look, and a practical recovery period. When patients combine procedures, they can maximize their results and minimize down time and scarring.
When you are considering a facelift, depending on the extent of your cosmetic concerns, you may want to consider a necklift (and vice versa, in some cases). Many patients see signs of aging on both areas simultaneously, and in order to maximize your results for a comprehensive anti-aging makeover, it may be most practical to undergo the procedures in conjunction.
If you find yourself with excess skin around the chin, neck, and jowls areas, these issues can be addressed with necklift surgery. Depending on the patient’s individual goals, Dr. Elliott utilizes liposuction to remove excess fat around the neck, while surgical techniques may be used for patients with a turkey waddle who need extra skin eliminated and neck muscles tightened.
To treat the excess skin and sagging neck that patients notice as they age, a necklift performed in combination with a facelift is an effective way to restore a youthful appearance. During a facelift, incisions are typically made under the earlobe, behind the ear or along the hairline to tighten muscle and eliminate excess skin.
