Neck Lift Surgery Procedure Toronto

Neck Lift Surgery Procedure

Introduction to Neck Lift

Starting in our 40s, the effects of age, sun exposure, and general stresses start to become apparent in our necks. The neck lift procedure is designed to try to reverse these changes and give the neck a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

If you notice that your neck skin is sagging, or that you have vertical bands in your neck, then a neck lift may be the right procedure to help rejuvenate your appearance.

Dr. Pirani uses an innovative neck lift technique which minimizes scarring compared to typical neck lifts offered by most plastic surgeons. Dr. Pirani prides himself on providing his patients with a neck lift that enhances your natural beauty but still maintains a natural appearance.

Who is a good candidate for a neck lift?

People who have noticed signs of aging and sagging of the skin in the neck would benefit from neck lift surgery.

What improvements can I expect from a neck lift?

Patients undergoing neck lift surgery should expect to notice improvements in the following areas of the neck:

  • Sagging excess skin in the neck will be tightened and elevated.
  • Obvious vertical bands (due to underlying muscles) will be softened.
  • Chin/neck fullness will be decreased with an improved and more youthful neck contour.

Who is a good candidate for a neck lift?

If you’re concerned that your neck is starting to appear aged and concerned about obtaining a more youthful appearance, then you are a good candidate for a neck lift procedure.

In addition, patients should be healthy. Smokers will have to quit smoking for at least 3 to 4 weeks prior to surgery. Patients should avoid taking any medications that make them prone to bleeding, such as aspirin.

How is a neck lift surgery performed by Dr. Pirani?

Toronto neck lift surgeon, Dr. Pirani performs an innovative facelift and neck lift procedure which allows him to perform the neck lift and neck rejuvenation through the facelift incision, thus reducing the need for an extra scar in the neck. This is an innovate new approach that very few other Toronto plastic surgeons or neck lift surgeons perform.

If there is excess fullness in the neck region, Dr. Pirani will also perform liposuction in the neck area to address this.

Recovery after a neck lift

After your neck lift, Dr. Pirani will usually have you stay overnight in our accredited surgical facility. You’ll be attended to by 2 nurses during your stay. These nurses will make sure that you’re safe and comfortable. Dr. Pirani will see you the next morning to change your dressings and make sure that you’re doing well.

Initially, there will be some bruising and swelling present, but this usually resolves over a few weeks. Most people will return to work within 10-14 days after neck lift surgery.

The Neck lift Consult

There is a large amount of information to review during a neck lift consultation. Dr. Pirani will usually spend approximately an hour with you during this consultation to go over all of the surgical details and options prior to creating a custom surgical plan for you that addresses all of your concerns and goals. He will go over risks and complications and give you an idea of what you should expect in terms of results and recovery.

Dr. Pirani’s goal is to educate you so that you fully understand your customized surgical plan. At the Toronto Plastic Surgery Center, we want you to be fully informed so that you understand everything about your treatment plan.
