"Absolutely amazing experience. Had a double mastectomy 15 years prior with latissimus dorsi flap on diseased breast due to previous radiation treatment. Outcome was two asymmetrical breasts and uneven nipples. Dr. Sosa was professional, kind and realistic about the potential outcome of the fix. I am absolutely so pleased with the results. He did everything he said he would do and met every expectation I had. I feel so much better about myself. Also, his entire staff was welcoming, accommodating and took the time with me. I never felt rushed or processed through. I will refer Dr. Sosa to everyone I know."- L.T. / Facebook / Nov 26, 2019

Men and women seeking neck lift surgery generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Regardless of the reason, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If your weight is stable, but you feel frustrated by loose skin, wrinkles, and lines on the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great option.
During a neck lift procedure, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed around your ears, and another one may also be made underneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, a form of liposuction would be completed first. Following that, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is performed until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness have been attained. Although sutures are used to close the incision, scarring should not be visible since they are located under your chin. An injection, such as Kybella, may also be used to enhance the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface, such as laser treatments or peels, to create a smooth and glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away with each passing day. It is important to rest and eliminate high-impact movements and activities for several weeks to assist in the healing period. During this time, fitted clothing near the neck should be avoided. You should see visible outcomes almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that the neck lift treatment can make one of the most significant improvements to a person's profile by taking a decade off their appearance.
