Neck Lift in Fredericksburg, VA

What Is A Neck Lift?

Are you tired of wearing turtlenecks or scarves the whole year to conceal the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki perform neck lift surgery at their Fredericksburg, VA practice to reduce the appearance of an aging neckline. This facial surgery tightens the section under your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a "turkey neck" or "double chin." By removing loose skin and fat while introducing a tightening method to produce a softer neckline, this procedure at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg can provide striking improvements to your profile. Before you call to schedule your initial consultation, read more about surgical neck lifts and the beautiful results they can create.

How is a Neck Lift Performed?

During neck lift treatment, anesthesia is used. An incision is placed just in front or behind your ears, and another might be created beneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, liposuction of the neck would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised, and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is performed until the desired shape and contour have been achieved. Although sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be visible since they are located beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection, such as KYBELLA®, may also be used to complement the results. Also, other nonsurgical options can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatments, to create a soft and smooth appearance.

What Are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?

Patients in Fredericksburg, VA who may be debating having a neck lift should think about some upsides of this surgery, including:

  • Smooths out skin that creases and gathers under the jaw
  • Minimally invasive procedure that provides just a trivial amount of scarring
  • Quick recovery timeframe that allows you to return to your everyday routine fairly swiftly
  • Raise self-assurance and self-confidence in your profile and whole look

Saw Dr. Bautista for breast augmentation and extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient with my questions and educated me on realistic results. I’m overwhelmingly happy with the outcome and without hesitation recommend him!

I had such a great experience here. Everyone in the office is so helpful and professional. I’ve had 5 large babies and had quite the muffin top situation going on. I can’t believe the difference the tummy tuck made. I’ve heard of other people traveling far away to get procedures done, but I’m super grateful we have such a high caliber plastic surgery office here in Fredericksburg!

I had a breast augmentation done in May and I could not be happier. Dr Heppe and his staff were very professional, helpful and supportive in making sure that what I wanted is what I got. I’ve waited my entire adult life for this surgery and would do it again with this team in a second. A+ all the way around!

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
