Neck Rejuvenation

The neck is one of the first areas to show age. This is evidenced by skin laxity and fat accumulation in the area under the chin. Thankfully this is one of the simplest areas to treat. Cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Jared Mallalieu can perform a wide range of procedures to help correct sagging skin and remove the unwanted fat. Allura for neck contouring combines liposuction removal of fat with laser skin tightening. The procedure takes less than 45 minutes and can be done with a local anesthetic. Patients can return to work the same day as treatment!

Patients with more isolated laxity, Dr. Mallalieu can use the ThermiTight radiofrequency device to tighten sagging skin on the neck and jowl. This procedure tightens skin through tiny incisions closed with a single stitch!

For those who need more substantial contouring, Dr. Mallalieu can lift the face and neck with a mini-face lift or neck lift. These procedures are done in the comfort of our office operating room using light sedation. Many male patients choose the anterior neck lift (cervicoplasty) which does NOT require general anesthesia and provides a fantastic improvement in neck contour. It too can be done with local anesthesia. All of our procedures include two complimentary laser treatments to help minimize any post procedure scarring. To find out which option is right for you, please call us to schedule your free consultation.

Before & After

What is platysmaplasty?

Platysmaplasty surgically corrects the stringy muscles that appear under the neck. The surgeon often performs liposuction at the same time. This involves just one incision under the chin.

Do I need general anesthesia?

This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia with the addition of some sedation to aid in patient comfort. We do have board certified anesthesiologists available if desired.

Can I have other procedures performed at the same time?

Yes. Many patients choose to add a Fraxel laser repair at the same time. Fraxel Re:pair removes fine wrinkles and sun damage, and dramatically tightens the skin. Some people choose to add a lower-face lift during neck rejuvenation.

How long does the surgery take?

It takes approximately two hours but time can vary according to the particular condition.

What will I experience during recovery?

Recovery is usually quick and the procedure is well tolerated. You will notice some bruising and swelling for 1-2 weeks postoperatively. A neck support is prescribed for 5-7 days to aid in proper healing. Most people return to work in seven days.

Love yourself. Inside and out.
