This experience far exceeded my expectations. I had my initial consult on February 23, more out of curiosity than anything, thinking if all went well I could have my surgery the following year when I returned to Mexico. From the moment I walked into the San Javier Hospital I was impressed by the clean, state of the art building design and staff. I saw Dr Alejandro in his clinic on the third floor and he answered all my questions and left it with me to contact his office if I wished to proceed with the surgery. To my surprise the office advised they could do the surgery as early as March 9, when I arrived I was greeted by a team of highly qualified staff, all of whom were friendly and spoke English and made me feel completely comfortable and at ease. I was monitored closely postoperatively and released within five hours of entering the hospital. The recovery has gone well and I saw Dr Alejandro at one week and again at two weeks prior to my return home to Canada. He will continue to follow me via video conference and photos after my return for a period of six months or longer as necessary. I would not hesitate to recommend Elaen Clinic and Dr Alejandro and would not hesitate to return for other procedures.

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
