Neck Suture Suspension
Do you have a less than appealing looking neck with excess fat or flabby skin? The neck suture suspension is the modern alternative to traditional neck lift procedures. This procedure is less invasive, results in less scarring, but still provides dramatic results. At New Jersey Plastic Surgery®, located in Montclair, NJ, we are offering this innovative procedure to the residents in and around Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What is Neck Suture Suspension?
Neck suture suspension is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the excess fat and skin on the neck and face. The neck suture suspension is a less invasive alternative to the traditional facelift and neck lift methods, with strikingly similar results.
What Makes the Neck Suture Suspension Different?
The neck suture suspension procedure is different from traditional neck and face lift procedures in the size and placement of the incisions. In a traditional facelift, large incisions are placed along the scalp and hairline. With neck suture suspension, several small incisions are made right behind the ears.
The Best Candidates for Neck Suture Suspension
Individuals who are generally in good health and are searching for an alternative to a facelift or neck lift are the strongest candidates for this neck surgery. Specifically, people who experience the following would enjoy the greatest benefits of this procedure:
- Flabby neck skin
- Loose, hanging jowls
- Excess fat along the jaw or a “double chin”
The Procedure for Neck Suture Suspension
Dr. DiBernardo begins the procedure with small incisions behind the ears, chin, and jowls. Utilizing the small incisions to remove excess fat, he will then insert a small device to tighten the skin and underlying muscles from within. Once the area is contoured, internal sutures are placed to support the smoother, taut appearance of the neck, chin and jowls.
How Much Does Neck Suture Suspension Cost?
The cost of neck suture suspension can vary depending on the surgery itself. To best determine the cost of your future neck suture suspension, schedule a consultation with our doctor. At your initial consultation, Dr. DiBernardo will review the procedure, talk to you about your desired outcomes and tell you the cost. For your payment convenience, we accept cash, check, Visa®, Master®Card, American Express® and Discover® on the neck suture suspension procedure. We also proudly offer financing options via CareCredit® and AlphaeonTM for our patients.
Life After Neck Suture Suspension
Following the procedure, a specialized support dressing will be applied to the area. Dr. DiBernardo recommends wearing the supportive sling for at least one week. Within four weeks the results of your neck suture suspension procedure will be noticeable and complete results will be observed in only a few months. The result is a smoother, younger looking appearance.
