Redefine Your Neckline
Neck Lift Bethesda
A person may be only as old as he or she feels, but the passage of time will take its toll on the skin. Even among people who are healthy and fit, the skin will eventually begin to lose its natural elasticity, becoming more lax around the neck and beneath the chin. Fortunately, there is a surgical solution to this common aesthetic concern. The neck lift procedure at the Bethesda, Maryland plastic surgery practice of Dr. Roger J. Oldham provides an effective means of tightening the muscles and skin of the neck. Patients emerge from the procedure looking younger, healthier, and dramatically revitalized.
The Neck Lift Procedure
The goal of neck lift surgery is to refine the appearance of the neck through the removal of excess skin and the tightening of the underlying musculature. If excess fatty tissue is also present, it can also be removed. The procedure is often ideal for those whose neck skin has become lax but whose facial features have yet to be affected by signs of aging.
Neck lift surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, generally requiring between one and one-half to two hours. Dr. Oldham employs minimally invasive techniques to ensure the most natural-looking results possible. During your initial consultation, Dr. Oldham will assess your physical features, explain the surgical approach that is best suited to you, and discuss the benefits, risks, and recovery associated with the procedure.

Candidates for Neck Lift Surgery
Suitable candidates for neck lift surgery at our Bethesda practice include those in good overall health with realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure, and adequate time for recovery. Although the results of the procedure can have a profound effect on a patient's overall appearance, it is much less involved than a face lift. For patients who wish to achieve more dramatic results, neck lift surgery can be combined with a face lift.
