Neck Lift Surgeon – Dr. Bermudez

A beautiful, smooth neck is a sign of youth and vitality. Unfortunately, the neck is one of the areas where the signs of aging tend to appear first. Over the years, the neck skin and muscles gradually lose their tone and elasticity, leading to unsightly bands and creases of excess tissue. Dr. Kenneth Bermudez recognizes this aesthetic concern, which is why he offers neck lift in San Francisco. By carefully rearranging the neck skin and muscles, he can create a youthful-looking neck without any visible signs of surgery. Read on to learn how neck lift can help you turn back the hands of time and appear as youthful on the outside as you feel on the inside.

Neck Lift

During neck lift surgery, Dr. Kenneth Bermudez removes excess skin from the neck and tightens the underlying muscles. This relatively minor surgical procedure addresses the problem of flabby, folding skin on the neck caused by rapid weight loss, sun exposure, and/or the natural aging process.

The Procedure

In performing a neck lift, Dr. Kenneth Bermudez discreetly makes small incisions behind the ears and under the chin, then lifts the area and removes excess fat deposits and skin. He then tightens the muscles as well as the remaining skin, providing the area with a fit, recontoured appearance. As a result, his SF neck lift patients often look both younger and slimmer. The results of neck lift can be enhanced even more by combining this procedure with injections of Botox, placement of facial implants or face lift surgery.

Recovery

After neck lift surgery, you may feel sore and swollen. The neck will be covered with special surgical bandages, and your head might also be wrapped in surgical dressings. The swelling and discomfort can be controlled with the use of prescription medications provided by Dr. Kenneth Bermudez. Most of his neck lift San Francisco patients are able to resume light activities within a week of their procedure. Once the swelling has completely subsided and the incisions have healed, there will be no visible signs of surgery, and the neck should look completely natural.

Risks

Just as with any surgical procedure, neck lift surgery is associated with rare complications, including:

  • Temporary numbness of the skin
  • Excess scar tissue
  • Bruising of the skin
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Reaction to anesthesia
  • Infection

However, when the procedure is performed by Dr. Bermudez, who has years of experience in neck lift surgery, the possibility of complications is greatly reduced. In fact, Dr. Bermudez is known for his excellent surgical track record, and many neck lift surgery San Francisco patients have trust him for all their facial rejuvenation needs.
