Who Should Consider Neck lift?
This procedure is ideal for patients who are concerned about excess neck fat, loose skin, neck bands, sagging jowls and loss of youthful angularity in the jaw area. These conditions will often hide or obscure the jaw line, which can negatively affect your appearance.
The Surgical Procedure
During a consultation, Dr. Maercks can determine the best option for rejuvenating your neck area or lower face. If skin elasticity is adequate, liposuction can contour the neck and below the chin. In other cases, patients may benefit from a procedure that tightens skin and muscle.

Life After Neck lift in Miami: What to Expect
Most patients plan for about 2 to 3 weeks of rest and recovery time. After the surgery, you will be sent home wrapped in a loose bandage that is designed to minimize post-operative swelling. Some numbness, bruising and puffiness should be expected during this time.
To minimize these effects Dr. Maercks might instruct you to keep your head elevated. The incision scars, which are concealed within the natural skin contour, should fade and flatten out over time. You may want to plan to wear scarves or high-necked clothing during your recovery from neck contouring.
