Iron Out Neck Wrinkles with a New Jersey Neck Lift!


Iron out neck wrinkles with a neck liftThe earliest signs of aging manifest themselves in the neck – from fatty jowls to turkey wattles to crepey, discolored skin. Dr. Larry Weinstein recommends a New Jersey neck lift for clients wanting to tighten the skin around the neck as well as lift its underlying muscles. A neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty, can either be a stand-alone procedure or done in conjunction with a face lift.

Pre-Surgery: Things to Consider

Apart from aging, other factors which can contribute to extreme neck sagging include dramatic weight loss and genetic influences. Dr. Weinstein will thoroughly assess your current status to make sure if a New Jersey platysmaplasty is right for you.

By and large, the best candidates include those who are in excellent health condition, non-smokers, and have excellent skin elasticity. It is also best for the client to have realistic expectations. Before the surgery, Dr. Weinstein may also order a series of lab tests to confirm your current health status. It is essential for you to stop taking herbal remedies and anti-inflammatory drugs two weeks before the surgery. These substances could increase bleeding during the procedure.

More Natural and Relaxed

Dr. Weinstein will gently and carefully lift your neck skin into a more youthful look. Since the latest techniques are utilized, you will be assured of a more “natural and relaxed” apperance in the outcome. At the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center, an “overpulled look” is so last season. To achieve your own cosmetic goals, Dr. Weinstein may also perform other procedures such as liposuction of neck and fat deposits.

Possible Risks and Complications

All surgical procedures come with risks. Below are the associated risks with neck lifts:

1. Excessive bleeding and/or blood clot formation
2. Loss or changes in sensation
3. Skin discoloration and/or irregularities in skin contour
4. Persistent swelling
5. Infection
6. Visible scarring as a result of poor neck reconstruction techniques


After the procedure, Dr. Weinstein will wrap a sterile pressure dressing around your neck and the chin area. You may feel tightness around your neck but will certainly disappear in a few hours as the anesthesia wears off. Possible swelling and bruising may occur during the first 3 days after surgery. You can expect for the dressings to be removed in 7-10 days.
