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.

"I am a 36 year old mom of 4 boys before meeting with Dr. Hartman my body, self confidence, and mental health were destroyed and I was dependent on 3 medications for depression/anxiety. I am currently on ZERO!! Let me tell you, Dr Hartman and staff at Fine Arts Skin and Laser are hands down simply Amazing! I went in for my consult very skeptical, scared, and ashamed of my body, but I came out with my self confidence boosted, a load of knowledge, and ended up scheduling my surgery a week later. I had my procedure at the end of that month--high def lipo in multiple areas (inner thighs, abdomen, love handles, bra roll, & under chin) living fat transfer, tummy tuck, and laser hair removal all on surgery day. Since surgery I have had lymphatic drainage massages, laser scar removal, Jeuveau, lip filler, Opus Plasma laser, and henna brows just to name a few and I couldn't be happier with my results (physical and mental). Dr H. and staff were awesome and answered all of my questions- good, bad, and ugly and made me feel comfortable, they were very upfront with me and told me all of the risks (every surgery has risks). They informed me that my body may reject some of the fat transfer, and that my stomach may end up with "cones" on my sides from the tummy tuck healing. I love how honest they were, and didn't sugar coat anything. Dr H and staff are real, upfront, honest and my kind of people. From the bottom of my heart thank you guys, thank you for giving me my confidence and my life back."- B.B. / Google / Nov 03, 2022
"Simply amazing, I highly recommend for your skin care needs! Fine Arts was recommended by a friend, I was reluctant to make the drive but purchased a package of their express facials and have been very pleased. I have been working with esthetician Nikki, she does an amazing job! The entire staff is professional, friendly, and very helpful! Fine Arts is worth the drive!"- B.D. / Google / Oct 20, 2022
