With neck lift surgery, Dr. Oldham has helped countless Bethesda men and women restore their face’s profile to a more youthful, natural appearance.
Neck lift surgery is a special procedure which targets excess skin that has formed along the folds of the neck, creating wrinkles and the appearance of sagging skin. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and it can droop in areas, especially around the face. Neck lift surgery is brief, lasting only about 1 1/2 hours, during which Dr. Oldham creates an incision under the chin (where scars will be well hidden and inconspicuous), tightens muscles and then smoothes remaining skin, securing at the same incision site. Recovery lasts about one week to ten days, with swelling and bruising fading before the second week. Patients all heal individually and in different ways, but can return to work when they feel comfortable—usually after one week. See for yourself the beautiful results before and after neck lift with Dr. Oldham.
