The Park Clinic is planning to be open on Friday, September 18th. We currently do not have power and are unable to confirm appointments. Please be advised there will be no No-Show penalty for patients unable to make it to their appointment. We will be available for all patients who need us. If you had an appointment scheduled with us this week and it was cancelled due to Hurricane Sally, we will be in contact with you as soon as we can. It may be early next week, but we will get those appointments rescheduled. We hope that all of our patients stayed safe during the storm. Should you have an emergency please dial 911.

Neck Lift Mobile

Neck Lift Mobile

Changes in the neck are due to excess fatty deposits below the chin, loose hanging skin, separation of the platysma in the midline, and thickening of the platysma muscle edges which cause vertical bands in the neck. As the platysma muscle loses its attachment to the neck, the junction between the chin and the neck loses its angle and becomes blunted.

The procedure

The neck can be addressed alone or with a facelift. Excessive fat in the neck can be removed with liposuction, but in most instances, a short incision is needed below the chin to remove excess fat and address the muscles of the neck by plicating platysmal separation in the midline and transection of longitudinal bands. With a facelift, tightening of the SMAS and tension behind the ear and along the posterior hairline will rejuvenate the neck. Without a facelift, adjunctive measures to tighten the neck skin are necessary, such as ultrasonic treatment or direct skin excision. The procedure takes 0.5 to 1.5 hours and can be done with local or general anesthesia.

After your operation

Postoperatively, the neck will be bruised and swollen and will feel tight for 7 – 10 days. Elevation of the head and a circumferential dressing or a chin strap will limit swelling and bruising. Sutures are removed at 1 week. It can take up to 2 to 3 months to appreciate the final result.

Dr. Park is the absolute BEST. I used him in November 2019 and am very pleased with my results. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon!
