Dr. Shermak has helped many Baltimore Necklift patients. Please read more about what to expect from the procedure below.
What is a Necklift?
A necklift is designed to tighten sagging skin of the neck, re-establish integrity of the neck muscles, remove excess fatty tissue in the neck, and improve the jawline. The approach to necklift depends on individual presentation, but in general incisions are strategically placed in the natural creases around the ear up to the sideburn, and possibly under the chin. The objective is a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance that looks natural, not different.
Who is a good candidate for Necklift?
Good candidates for Facelift are men and women between 30 and 80 years of age in good health who have poorly defined neck- and jawlines. Necklift helps rejuvenate patients who have signs of aging and restore appearance in individuals who have sustained massive weight loss. This procedure may be combined with Brow Lift, Blepharoplasty, Facial Fat Grafting, and Chin Implant to rejuvenate and provide better balance to the entire face and neck. During the initial consultation you will discuss with Dr. Shermak what you would like to improve so she can understand your expectations and determine how to best achieve your desired result.
What is the recovery like for Necklift?
Surgery tends to be performed as an outpatient. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, and bruising that respond well to head elevation, compressive wrapping, ice packs and Arnica Montana herbal supplementation. You will be seen in the office within 1 to 3 days to have dressings removed. Makeup may be applied by 2 weeks after surgery. Most resume regular activities and return to work within 1-2 weeks, and swelling may take up to a month to resolve. Stitches are removed 7 to 10 days after surgery.
The way you look and feel directly affects your self-confidence. In addition to treating Baltimore Necklift patients, Dr. Shermak takes care of many Baltimore Blepharoplasty, Brow Lift, Facelift, and Facial Fat Grafting and Facial Liposuction patients.
