What is a neck lift?
Are you tired of wearing turtlenecks or scarves all year round to hide loose, flabby skin on your neck? Dr. David Hartman performs neck lift surgery at Fine Arts Skin & Laser in Dover, OH, to improve the appearance of an aging neckline. This cosmetic surgery recontours and reshapes the area beneath your chin to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By taking away the excess skin and fat while incorporating a tightening technique, we create a smoother and more natural neckline. Before you contact us to schedule an appointment, read below to learn more about neck lift surgery and the amazing results it can produce.
Who is a candidate for a neck lift?
Men and women considering neck lift treatment deal with visibly loose, hanging skin in the neck region. This loose skin is usually caused by numerous factors, including significant weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, sagging neck skin creates an unflattering appearance that can only be addressed with skin removal and surgical tightening. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but feel frustrated or embarrassed by wrinkles and loose skin folds on the neck, a neck lift from Dr. Hartman may be a recommended treatment in Dover, OH.
What to expect during a neck lift
During a neck lift procedure, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind or in front of the ears, and another one may be placed beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, a form of liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Following that, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away, and the remaining tissue will be pulled tight. This technique is performed until the desired shape and contour are achieved. Even though sutures are used to close the incision, scarring should not be visible since they are located beneath the chin. Dr. Hartman may recommend additional nonsurgical options like laser skin resurfacing to create a glowing and refreshed appearance.
How long is neck lift recovery?
After neck lift surgery, there will likely be some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort in the treatment area, but these effects will fade with each passing day. It's important to rest and avoid strenuous, high-impact exercises during this time to ensure a safe and successful recovery. While recovering, fitted clothing near the neck should be avoided. However, you should notice visible and more contoured outcomes almost immediately. In fact, it has been said that neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant enhancements to a person's profile, shaving years off your appearance.

"Kirstyn always does such a great job on my facials and she is very knowledgeable with skincare. Everyone in the office is also so friendly and welcoming. I will definitely continue to get facials here!"- K.J. / Google / Sep 08, 2022
"If you haven't experienced Fine Arts Skin and Laser, you are missing out! From the moment I entered the office, I was greeted by the warmest, sweetest and most welcoming staff. Any questions I had were answered by qualified and highly trained personnel. What made me feel most comfortable, was the fact that staff members had personally received and experienced the services and treatments I was inquiring about. Wanda was incredibly knowledgeable about my procedure and remained beside me throughout the entire journey. Dr Hartman and the rest of the team were attentive, professional, calming and gentle. They coached me throughout the entire procedure. Initially, I was apprehensive to undergo a tummy tuck and lipo-suction while awake, but now that it's over- I am happy I chose to move forward with it. Using the Tumescent anesthesia and Pronox, I experienced minimal discomfort throughout the surgery and my recovery was much smoother as a result of not having received general anesthesia. I am currently five days post-op and already absolutely love the new me! I am looking forward to my lymphatic drainage sessions with the Esthetician in a few weeks. This will help facilitate blood flow and optimize the recovery process even further. My hope is to motivate and inspire others to also take the next steps to becoming a happier, healthier version of themselves. My only regret is that I waited to have this done as long as I have! Thank you Dr Hartman & the rest of the team at Fine Arts Skin & Laser!"- C.H. / Google / Sep 03, 2022
