What is a Neck Lift?

As a result of the aging process, deposits of fat and sagging can cause what is commonly referred to as a “turkey neck”. Rather than continuing to hide your appearance, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia can reshape your neck and complement the rest of your facial features with a neck lift, also known as a “lower rhytidectomy”.

What a Neck Lift Can Improve

For men and women whose neck areas do not match their overall appearance due to aging, gravity, and weight loss, a neck lift may be the answer. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will analyze your facial features and personalize a plan for your new, refreshed appearance. A neck lift can improve the following aesthetic concerns:

  • Jowling in the lower face as a result of skin laxity
  • Excess fatty deposits in the lower chin
  • Loose neck skin
  •  Muscle banding

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia’s Holistic Approach

When you choose to work with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia, you’re choosing a plastic surgeon who takes a holistic approach to rejuvenation. He will never perform just one procedure. Instead, he addresses your aesthetic concerns in a comprehensive manner — combining treatments to achieve a consistent and balanced result. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia wants all of you to look as good as the rest of you. 

Before Surgery: What to Expect in Your Consultation

Prior to your surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia. During this meeting, he will create a customized surgical plan by using 3D advanced imaging technology that helps you visualize your outcome. He will outline how you can prepare and what you can expect. He will also address your questions and advise you on how much time you should take off from work and normal activities. The consultation is the ideal time and place to ask all of your questions.

I truly enjoy my visits to Dr. Ramirez’s office.

I came in due to my concern with my neck, showing my age, and he explained the best treatment for the effects of ‘passing of time and law of gravity’ on our bodies.” — Marcela G.

How is a Neck Lift Performed?

A neck lift is performed under general anesthesia at one of our surgical centers in Nashville. While you are comfortably asleep, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will carefully create incisions that are hidden within the natural folds and contours of the ears and neck, minimizing visible scarring. Depending on the type of correction that is needed, he will then remove excess skin and fat and tighten the remaining skin to tighten, elevate, and add a more pleasing shape to your profile.

What is the Recovery Like After a Neck Lift?

The healing process after a neck lift is different for everyone, but some swelling and mild discomfort may be experienced as your new neck contours heal. Aftercare instructions for your incision sites, as well as prescription medication to control your discomfort, will be provided for you by Dr. Ramirez Gavidia and our team at RG Plastic Surgery.
