The appearance of the neck can be affected by age, weight loss, and other factors that make the skin loose and wrinkled. Fat deposits and excess skin can lead to a double-chin, or what’s often referred to as “turkey neck.” Fortunately, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani offers a variety of effective enhancement treatments that can tighten the skin, remove extra fat, and give the neck a smoother, more youthful appearance. A neck lift procedure can also improve jawline contour, and this technique is often combined with facelift surgery to achieve more comprehensive aesthetic improvement. If you’re dissatisfied by the appearance of your neck, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can help you rejuvenate this area with natural-looking and long-lasting results.

I was very impressed with the anesthesiologist - I didn't get sick at all afterwards and he made me feel at ease. My entire recovery was very smooth and I barely took my pain pills."- Orlando, Florida

What Should I Expect from the Neck Contouring Procedure?
Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can perform neck contouring procedures in a number of ways. During your initial consultation at our practice, you and Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will decide on the method that can be most beneficial for your goals. Liposuction is one technique that can be used to help reduce excess fat from the neck & diminish the appearance of a double chin. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can also perform a neck lift procedure, which would involve the removal of excess skin followed by redraping the remaining skin for a more firm, smoother appearance to the neck. A neck lift can also be performed with a facelift for a more complete rejuvenation.
Depending on skin tone, elasticity, and other factors, not all patients may be candidates for neck lift surgery. However, for those who are not candidates, our skilled plastic surgeon can suggest alternatives that can help you meet your needs.
What Should I Expect During Neck Contouring Recovery?
There will be swelling, bruising, and some soreness after neck lift or neck contouring surgery with liposuction; however, any discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Recovery times will depend on the type of procedure you undergo – neck lift patients can typically resume normal daily routines after about two weeks; neck liposuction recovery may not require as much recovery time.
Swelling, tenderness, and numbness can take some time to fade, and everyone experiences the healing process at their own unique rate. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can provide a more precise estimate of your recovery time during your initial consultation. Most patients will have a good idea of their final results after a few months. While some residual swelling and numbness may continue after this point, you will likely not notice or be bothered by these effects.

What will my scars look like?
Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani strives to create natural-looking results, and part of that objective is keeping incisions as well-hidden as possible. If you are receiving liposuction alone, the incisions will be very small, and most patients heal well and consider the scars unnoticeable. In a neck lift, incisions are typically made behind the folds of the ear, where they are mostly inconspicuous. In some cases, an additional incision may be made under the chin. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani will discuss the details of your plan so you know what to expect.
Can I combine neck contouring with facelift surgery?
If you have common signs of aging on your mid and lower face as well as your neck, you may be interested in combining these two procedures. Many patients incorporate multiple techniques to enhance their outcome, as these areas often have overlapping concerns. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani can help you determine if facelift surgery can be added to your treatment plan to achieve your goals. Non-surgical options, such as dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables, are also available and can be used to reduce signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
When can I return to work?
We encourage you to take the time you need to fully heal after surgery, because the recovery process is an essential part of achieving the discussed outcome. Taking a couple of weeks off from your normal activities is fairly standard, although your experience may be a little longer or shorter depending on what your treatment plan includes.
*How long will the results last?
By using the most advanced techniques available, we can help ensure your outcome is long-lasting. It’s important to note that the natural process of aging will continue, and you may begin to see these effects in time. If you take good care of your skin, wear sunscreen, and avoid harmful behaviors like smoking and tanning, your results could last up to 10 years or more. Occasional non-surgical treatment may allow you to extend this time frame further.
