Believe it or not, one of the first signs of aging is apparent on your neck. The skin on your neck can lose firmness and elasticity, and fat deposits can accentuate loose skin, adding years to your appearance. A neck lift in Kerrville, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Layton, can dramatically improve each one of these issues and help you look more youthful than ever.
Formally known as a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift procedure removes excess skin and fat on your neck and along your jawline. When you opt for this facial surgery, our highly-trained medical staff will ensure that your neck appears smoother, defined, contoured, and youthful.

A neck lift procedure in Kerrville involves targeted liposuction in your neck. During this procedure, Dr. Layton will remove excess fat from your jawline and underneath your chin. Next, he will remove and tighten the remaining skin to give your neck a smoother, slimmer, and more defined appearance. After doing so, the skin on your neck will no longer sag and droop. If you can maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, you will enjoy your neck lift results for many years.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Layton and our medical team will assess your needs and create a plan for your neck lift procedure.

Your neck lift surgery will take about three to four hours, and we recommend that you schedule this procedure on a day off. Following the procedure, we will monitor you for 30 minutes to ensure there are no complications. Our medical team in Kerrville advises you to arrange for a ride home so you do not risk overexerting yourself following your procedure.
Following your neck lift procedure in Kerrville, you must rest for at least two weeks. Although you may be permitted to perform minimal activities, it is essential during your rest and recovery period that you do not over-extend, twist, or bend your neck to ensure a smooth healing process. To facilitate healing, reduce swelling, and ease discomfort, you may be required to wear a special neck brace.
