One of the most common signs of aging in men is the appearance of fat and sagging skin on the neck, or a “turkey neck.” Even if your face is still youthful, these unwanted signs of aging can make you look older than you feel. Fortunately, Dr. Mesa can help restore a youthful, sculpted, defined neck with a customized male neck lift. We employ a wide range of techniques to address all of the signs of aging on your neck, from unwanted fat deposits to sagging skin and vertical neck bands (platysma bands).

How can a neck lift under local anesthesia help me?

Dr. Mesa is a top-level plastic surgeon who performs neck lifts with the utmost artistry and precision, leaving patients with remarkably natural results, minimal scarring, and a short recovery period. A neck lift can restore a more youthful, appealing neck by:

  • Removing excess skin
  • Smoothing wrinkles and creases
  • Removing excess fat on the neck
  • Removing double chin fat
  • Tightening and firm the neck muscles
  • Restoring a firm, sculpted jawline
  • Reducing the appearance of visible neck bands

How is a neck lift under local anesthesia performed?

A neck lift is a customized procedure that combines multiple techniques to address your unique issues. This procedure often includes:

  • High definition liposuction to remove excess fat
  • Careful excision of sagging or excess skin, with minimal scarring
  • Re-adjustment and firming of the underlying skin and muscle tissue through well-hidden incisions behind your ears or under your chin

Neck lifts have traditionally been performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The added risks of general anesthesia led Dr. Mesa to develop and perfect the techniques of performing a neck lift under local anesthesia without twilight anesthesia (IV sedation). Using local anesthetic increases the safety of the procedure and reduces post-operative discomfort for a faster recovery.

Recovery after a neck lift under local anesthesia

Recovery after your surgery will depend on the depth of your surgery and your body’s unique ability to heal. You can expect to have your sutures removed in five to ten days, but you will need a few weeks to recover after the procedure. Dr. Mesa will discuss the full post-operative plan with you and will help you return to your usual activities as quickly as possible. Patients routinely report that the long-lasting results are well worth going through a few weeks for healing.

Results after a neck lift under local anesthesia

Most men begin to see their results appear within the first week after the procedure as the swelling and bruising goes down. Final results usually take three to four weeks to appear, and these results will last for years into the future. Dr. Mesa’s incredible level of skill and experience allows him to create results that look entirely natural, so you can be confident your results will never look “worked on.”

Comprehensive rejuvenation

As time passes, the ravages of age appear in various parts of your face and neck. For comprehensive facial rejuvenation, you may want to combine your neck lift with one or more other procedures. Combination procedures mean undergoing surgery and recovery only once.

The results, when under the care of Dr. Mesa, appear youthful, masculine, and like you — not pulled or unnatural. Some of the most common procedures that men choose to combine with a neck lift include:

  • Facelift
  • Eyebrow lift
  • Eyelid lift
  • Liposuction
  • Facial fat transfer
  • Chemical peel

He can help you achieve a youthful, vital, and masculine appearance that looks entirely natural and leaves you feeling confident that you look your best.
