The Visage Rapid Recovery Neck Lift
As we age, the youthful definition of the neck and jawline is often lost. Sagging or loose skin, excess fat, and lack of muscle tone are the most common concerns. The effects of gravity become more apparent.The Visage Lift differs because it addresses the deeper tissue by going under the muscle, sliding it upwards into its original youthful position. This technique results in less bruising and swelling since it lifts deeper beneath the muscle. Once the deeper tissue is lifted, the excess skin is trimmed. Scars heal better because there is no tension on superficial layers and skin. This lift results in a natural, softer look and creates definition along the jawline and neck, not tightness.
The Visage Lift is a partial lower facelift/neck lift which lifts the sagging muscles of the neck and jowls, eliminating them and creating youthful and natural definition, without the resulting tight look of older facelift and necklift techniques. This procedure incorporates the use of tissue glues rather than the older techniques of drains, to allow faster healing with less bruising and swelling and eliminate the pain, scarring and discomfort associated with postoperative drains. In addition, Dr. Rabinovich incorporates the use of post-operative vitamins and herbal supplements to expedite recovery. Our experienced staff aesthetician will create an individual post-operative care regimen with specific instructions for you to take home, aiding your rapid recovery.
The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia or twilight sedation, typically without general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes about 2 hours. Swelling and bruising usually subside fairly quickly, allowing most patients to return to work in two weeks. Patients usually wear their hair up within a few weeks without a visible scar.
Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction with face lifts, however, they can be performed alone when needed. In some patients, signs of aging show up more predominantly in the neck rather than on the face.
There are a number of procedures available to restore the youthful appearance of the neck. They include treatments such as Botox injections, neck liposuction, or a neck lift.
