Neck Lift

LOOK GOOD, FEEL GREAT AND BRING BACK YOUR YOUTHFUL LOOK.

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that involves the removal and tightening of sagging skin around the face and neck. The sagging skin on the neck is often referred to as a “waddle”. A neck lift is often performed to accompany a facelift.

Other techniques used to improve the appearance of the neck and the face, include liposuction and laser skin rejuvenation. Liposuction can be used alone in someone that has good quality skin without laxity, but has excess fat. As everyone has different concerns, Dr. Shortt will go over the best approach with you to meet your specific goals.

Dr Shortt will go over your options, so you feel that your surgery is specifically planned for you.

When to consider having this procedure?

In general, candidates for neck lift surgery are aged 40 – 70 years, are in good health and are able to have general anaesthetic, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

N

sagging skin and loss of elasticity on the neck

N

self conscious of the apparent look of “jowl” or “waddle” on the neck

N

desire a more youthful appearance of the face and neck

N

concerned about excess fat in the neck

N

are undergoing a facelift already

What is the recovery time?

In general, the recovery time following a neck lift surgical procedure is approximately 3-6 weeks, with swelling that can potentially last a bit longer. As with any surgery under general anaesthetic, there are potential risks or complications to consider. During your private consultation, Dr Shortt will take a thorough medical history from you, discuss your surgical options, explain the complete procedure and potential risks, what to expect pre and post surgery and your estimated recovery time.

Fabulous Doctor, Extremely smart ( like Mensa IQ ) with attention to detail.

Fabulous Doctor, Extremely smart ( like Mensa IQ) with attention to detail. Confident, clear, and precise in conversations. Hand surgery was done extremely well with 4 breaks in one shattered bone. Bone was wrapped and pinned in titanium chain links and micro screwed. Recover has been excellent I have 100% of mobility in my hand and work in home renovation. The scar is small pin sized line, not noticeable; no extra bumps or blemishes. Truly a five star surgeon. I am hoping he does face surgery.

I was so pleased that my GP referred me to Dr Shortt

I was so pleased that my GP referred me to Dr Shortt, for knee surgery. Excellent caring Doctor, if you need plastic surgery place Dr. Shortt, at the top of your list. Great experience, great results, this Doc, is a 10!

I simply cannot find enough superlatives to express my gratitude

I simply cannot find enough superlatives to express my gratitude to Dr. Short for his wonderful work.
I have, for many years now, had numerous black moles and dark spots on my face and they seemed to be multiplying. Dr. Short removed over 40 of these and when I left his office, I have to admit, I was worried. I looked pretty rough. But there are no crevices or dips in my skin (of which I thought there’d be many) and most incredibly there is no visible scarring at all. It’s hard for me to say how much better I feel now. I have a refreshed, natural look. I am a career musician and in the public eye so, needless to say, I feel so much more confident about my appearance.
Dr. Short was honest with me from the beginning. He clearly explained options to me but never made me feel that he was up selling other services. I was fearful and had huge reservations about having anybody touch my face but everything about my experience with Dr. Short and his staff was positive and I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend him. He has my sincere thanks.

You can tell the enthusiasm and passion Dr.Shortt has for his work

From the get go the professionalism and expertise I had received far surpassed those from other consultations I had done. I had gone in for a breast augmentation and am amazed from the results. You can tell the enthusiasm and passion Dr.Shortt has for his work. He had stated that afterwards my breast would look “perfect”, I figured anything would be better then what I had. Unbelieving then, here I am now absolutely thrilled with the results. I had a tattoo where the implant incision would be, to my surprise Dr. Shortt was able to work around it as well.
