Consider a Facelift
A neck lift can be a great option for patients that may not need a full facelift. For those who need an extra boost, a facelift can be a great option. Tighten skin around your entire face and get a reenergized look. FacesFirst offers a variety of facelift options that can be suited to your needs, lifestyle and desired results. Contact FacesFirst to schedule an appointment. Dr. Picerno and Dr. Cote are facial surgery experts, which means that they are exactly the type of surgeons you want treating your face. Put your cosmetic surgery needs in the hands of trained and trusted experts.

Depending on the bone structure in your neck, the results of submental lipectomy can often be quite substantial, and can dramatically postpone the need for facelift surgery. This procedure works best on young to middle-aged individuals who have good skin tone. Without good skin tone, the fatty tissue would be removed, but the skin tightening that occurs secondary to undermining tissues would not take place. A submental lipectomy only removes excess fatty tissue and relies upon the skin’s ability to tighten itself. It is not a replacement for a facelift or a necklift. However, dramatic results can be obtained with a minimal amount of discomfort and recovery time for appropriate individuals. This procedure can be done under local anesthesia in less than an hour in our Denver or Lone Tree offices. Recovery is just about 3-5 days. Combining submental lipectomy with a chin implant can result in superior, long lasting results.
The neck lift uses an incision under the chin and sometimes in the nape of the neck through which the skin is brought up to reverse signs of aging like saggy jowls, fat under the chin, or visible bands in the neck. As we age, the edges of the neck muscles separate and fall, creating the visible bands. While the neck lift is not a replacement for the facelift, in many cases, 80% of the improvement that a facelift would provide to this area can be achieved with a neck lift. Benefits of a neck lift include less visible external incisions and less healing time. A neck lift is especially beneficial in men who want to avoid the telltale incision in front of the ear that is necessary in a male facelift, yet are concerned over laxity of tissue in the neck area. Differing from a facelift, the neck lift removes fatty tissue, re-supports muscles, and removes some skin below the chin and in the neck area. A facelift removes fatty tissue, re-supports muscles, and removes excess skin in the neck, cheek, jowl, and lateral temporal areas. Please consider that a neck lift does require twilight or general anesthesia.
