Dr. Alejandro Enrique was very helpful during our Consultation. His knowledge and explanation of Process helped us to decide to set a date for a Facelift Procedure.

Dr. Alejandro and his staff are absolutely wonderful! I felt cared about throughout the entire process. The communication is fabulous. They answered all of my questions and took amazing care of me. The morning of my procedure the doctors and support staff were upbeat, friendly, and very caring. After my procedure, they had me rest/sleep for 4 - 5 hours in a recovery room that was dimly lit, had relaxing music playing with nature scenes on the tv. I believe they even had aromatherapy and a salt rock lamp. I had a nurse in the room with me the entire time who was so compassionate to everything I was going through. A doctor called my husband halfway through the surgery to let him know that everything was going well. Then Dr. Alejandro called him once the surgery was over to let him know they were done and I was recovering. In the days since my procedure, they've checked in on me several times. I am so glad that I chose elaen and Dr. Alejandro & I'm recommending my friends come to have the same procedure with him.

What is Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)?

Platysmaplasty, the neck lift procedure aims at removing excess skin and fat from the neck area. As people age, the skin on their neck tends to hang or sag. This procedure can be done alone, or accompanied by a face lift.

 

A Good Candidate for Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)

Any healthy individual over the age of 40, who desires to remove excess skin in the neck area due to age or weight loss is a good candidate for neck lift surgery.

 

Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty) Procedure

The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will discuss with you the different treatment options and combinations available. After an anesthesia is administered, an incision will be made under your chin or behind your ears where the skin will be gently raised.

 

Your surgeon will tighten the muscles underlying the soft tissue in the neck and remove any excess skin or fat by liposuction or cutting it out. The skin is resurfaced on the neck and incisions are closed with dissolvable or removable stitches. This procedure is outpatient, which means that the patient can return home the same day.

 

Average Duration of Neck lift surgery: 2-3 hours
