You may be an ideal candidate for our neck lift in Houston if you:
Our neck lift in The Woodlands is an incredible procedure that can change not just your looks - but also how you feel about yourself. A few of the benefits include:
Your neck lift will be performed in our state-of-the-art Houston surgical center. It's typically done under general anesthesia and should take between two and three hours to complete. To begin, Dr. Lyos will create tiny incisions behind the ears and beneath the chin. Through those openings, he will remove excess fat and tighten loose muscles. Depending on your needs, he may also remove a section of the platysma muscle to enhance your neck contour.
Once the neck has been sufficiently toned and tightened, Dr. Lyos will re-drape your skin, close the incisions and trim away any excess tissue.
Be prepared to stay home from work for one to two weeks. During that period, you can expect some pain, bruising and swelling as you recover.
After you've undergone your neck lift in Houston surgery, have a friend or family member stay with you for at least the first 24 hours, as you will have difficulty moving around the house and performing routine tasks.
You will spend the first few days of your recovery in bed, giving your body time to heal.
You will need to avoid heavy lifting, rigorous exercise and similar activities for several weeks.
Neck lift results typically improve over time and are considered optimal about six months after the procedure. During surgery, Dr. Lyos is meticulous in his incision placements to ensure that any scarring is minimal.
It's important to note that our neck lift in The Woodlands is highly effective in addressing existing signs of aging - but it won't stop the natural aging process from progressing. As such, you can expect your firmer skin and beautifully defined jawline to endure between five and ten years, at which point you may need an additional procedure. In the meantime, you can preserve your results with a consistent at-home skincare regimen and non-surgical rejuvenation treatments at our Houston office.
