Enjoy Thorough Neck Rejuvenation With a Deep Neck Lift in Houston

The neck is one of the areas where the signs of aging tend to be most prominent. These can include loose, sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and the appearance of a “double chin,” “turkey neck,” or jowls. While traditional neck lift surgery is a very effective method for enhancing the neck and jawline's contours, it has certain limitations. However, with a deep neck lift in Houston performed by Dr. Angela Sturm, you can attain a more youthful neck while significantly enhancing its shape and definition with extremely natural-looking, long-lasting results.

What Is a Deep Neck Lift?

A deep neck lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to enhance the firmness and contours of the neck, jawline, and submental area. The main thing that differentiates the procedure from a traditional neck lift is its ability to address the deeper layers of tissue and muscle. This allows Dr. Sturm to improve the underlying shape of the neck and create a more sculpted, youthful appearance. During a deep neck lift, Dr. Sturm will typically make a discrete incision beneath the chin and begin carefully adjusting the layers of skin, muscle, fat, and connective tissue.

In addition to lifting the different layers of the neck, she will remove both superficial and deep excess fat as well as any excess skin to enhance the contours of the neck and jawline. In most cases, Dr. Sturm will also tighten the neck muscles to create a firmer, more defined neck. The specifics of the procedure can vary from one patient to the next; Dr. Sturm will make whatever adjustments are necessary to give your neck a youthful, toned look and eliminate the appearance of a double chin, jowls, or turkey neck.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Deep Neck Lift in Houston?

If you’re interested in comprehensive neck rejuvenation, you could be a good candidate for a deep neck lift. Most candidates for the procedure are seeking more complete, natural-looking results than what’s typically offered with a standard neck lift. The deep neck lift procedure is a frequent choice for adults dealing with excess submental fat, sagging neck skin, or a full-looking neck. If you’re considering a deep neck lift, you should also understand that it’s a more invasive procedure than a traditional neck lift. Ideal candidates should be generally healthy non-smokers who aren’t currently pregnant or breastfeeding. When you have your consultation, Dr. Sturm will examine your neck and evaluate your situation to determine if a deep neck lift is your best option.

What Is the Recovery Like?

You’ll likely need to spend around two weeks resting and recovering after your deep neck lift. During this time, you’ll experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these symptoms can be managed with pain medication and the application of a cold pack. You can also reduce swelling by sleeping with your head elevated.

After about a week of frequent rest, you should be able to start easing back into light activities, but it will likely be about two weeks before you’re back to your normal routine. You should also wait a minimum of four to six weeks to return to strenuous physical activity.

What type of anesthesia will be used?

For your deep neck lift, general anesthesia will be used, keeping you peacefully asleep throughout the procedure.

How long will the surgery take?

Depending on the extent of the procedure, a deep neck lift typically takes between two and four hours to complete. After the surgery, you’ll need to be monitored for a couple of hours. You can then return home, but you’ll need someone else to drive you.

How soon will the results become visible?

You may notice improvements to the shape and definition of your neck right away after the procedure, but usually, it takes a couple of weeks to start seeing significant results. It will likely take approximately four to six months to see the full effects of the surgery, once the swelling is entirely gone and your neck has settled into its new shape.

Will there be visible scarring?

Because your incision will be hidden beneath your chin, any scarring will be very inconspicuous. It should also gradually fade over a year or so.
