Where is the best place to undergo a natural mini neck lift in Atlanta?
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs natural mini-neck lifts for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and the surrounding communities in Georgia. A natural mini neck lift is a quick, less expensive alternative to conventional neck lift surgery. The procedure’s result is equally long-lasting, erasing years off one’s neck in a matter of hours.
The minor surgical procedure effectively removes sagging skin, wrinkles and fatty deposits and restores the neck to its youthful, buoyant appearance. With only minor incisions made on targeted areas of the neck, the procedure has become increasingly popular among both men and women in Atlanta and other major cities in the United States.
Who is a good candidate for a neck lift?
In Atlanta, the procedure is extremely popular among patients who are in their 30s to 50s. Natural mini-neck lifts use an incision behind the ear to tighten the neck muscles and skin. Candidates have mild skin excess in the neck usually appearing as crepey loose skin.
Natural mini-neck lifts employ the same concept as the conventional neck lift surgeries. They aim to tighten underlying muscles that are lax, remove fat under the skin, and restore the youthful contour of the neck. The skin is delicately pulled and stitched back so that a well-defined contour is achieved.
Benefits of a mini neck lift may include…
- Short treatment time
- Tightens and tones the neck muscles
- Helps correct crepe-like neck skin
- Helps reduce unwanted submental fat
- Effective where diet and exercise have failed
- Minimal scarring
- Minimal discomfort
- Long-lasting results
- A more youthful aesthetic
What can I expect after my surgery?
Natural mini-neck lift surgery can be performed under local anesthesia and has a faster recovery time than a conventional neck lift procedure; patients are usually able to resume normal, daily activities after a few days. However, as the wound is still tender, strenuous exercise and heavy housework are not encouraged during the first a week after the surgery. Patients may also experience some swelling and slight bruising on the face and neck after the procedure, which will eventually subside after a week. In order to speed up the healing process, patients are advised to have plenty of rest, avoid alcohol consumption, and adopt healthy diets during the recovery period.
- Surgery: Outpatient
- Anesthesia: Local, IV sedation or general anesthesia
- Procedure length: On average, 1 – 1.5 hours
- Recovery: On average, 7 days.
What makes the mini neck lift stand out?
Our natural mini necklift shares many of the attributes of our natural necklifts. Because the skin isn’t pulled tightly, there is less tension on the incision when sutured back together behind the ear.
When skin is pulled too tightly, it can not only give a person a pulled look but it also causes the scars to widen and become unsightly. This is a problem for women who pull their hair back, wear their hair short, or for men who have short hair.
By avoiding this stress on the skin, the incisions heal almost invisibly allowing the person to wear their hair any way they want.
When needed, neck liposuction is performed with the natural mini necklift to provide the smoothest contour to your new neckline and reduction in your double chin. A small quarter inch incision is required just below the chin.
Is the mini neck lift painful?
Less than 5% of patients undergoing the natural necklift or extended natural necklift complain about pain. Every person has a different pain tolerance and, as such, pain medicine is provided to every patient; however, 95% of patients undergoing this procedure use nothing more than Tylenol.
What is the cost for a natural mini neck lift?
The cost of your mini neck lift will be assessed during your confidential consultation with Dr. Majmundar and Dr. Lipin in Atlanta, and will depend on the complexity of the procedure and on whether you are undergoing any additional treatments in tandem, such as a facelift or blepharoplasty. Our office will assist you with financing options.
