When looking for the best neck lift Northern VA area has to offer, there is a reason local patients go to Dr. Feledy at Belmont Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Feledy has performed thousands of cosmetic and general surgeries in two locations: Chevy Chase, Maryland serving the DC area patients and Stafford, Virginia serving Northern VA.
“Before deciding on where to do my procedure, I looked at several doctors. A friend told me Dr. Feledy did the best neck lifts in Stafford VA. It was true, he was caring and the procedure made me look so much better.” - S.V.*
A neck lift procedure is a cosmetic surgery designed to improve the visible aging common with neck skin and increasing fatty deposits in the area. Despite regular exercise and a healthy diet, fat still develops in the neck area. A neck liposuction removes sagging skin and restores the neck to a more youthful look.
Do you have a “double chin”? Unfortunately, fat deposits, loss of muscle tone and fallen fat causes that awful double chin. A neck lift will get rid of the extra fat. A less involved variation of a facelift, the neck lift will address the loose skin and make you look younger and stronger. This procedure can be done at the same time as other facial surgery procedures such as a full facelift, brow lift or an eyelid lift.
Neck lifts are an excellent choice for patients who want a longer-lasting effect than most non-surgical procedures. Patients need to be physically healthy, non-smoker, and not suffer from high blood pressure or blood-clotting issues. They are usually between 40 and 60 years old. If you are considering getting a neck lift, be realistic about the outcome of your procedure.
In getting a neck lift surgery, be aware that there are some risks just like any other surgical procedure. Discuss your concerns with Dr. Feledy during your consultation.
Once the general anesthetic is administered, an incision will be made in front of the ear lobe around the ear into the hair line. The incisions are designed to be concealed within the natural folds of the face. The fat underneath the skin is sculpted and repositioned, and tissues underneath are adjusted for optimal contour. The skin is redraped over the treated area. Any excess skin is removed. Incisions are closed with sutures or skin adhesives. The entire procedure can take a few hours.
A bandage will be placed over the treated area to minimize swelling or bruising. A tube can be added to drain excessive fluids during the recovery. Swelling can take a few months to disappear completely. The incision lines are camouflaged by the natural lines of the ear, jaw and hair and take up to six months to fade. When combined with a healthy diet, regular exercise and avoiding excessive sun exposure, the results should be long-lasting and give you a better appearance.
Depends on what you are looking for as far as your new appearance and what can be done surgically for you. You will discuss with Dr. Feledy about all the options available to you. Remember, neck lift surgery does not stop the process of aging but can improve your overall look quite a bit. Incisions are strategically placed to hide scars.

“The most important part of a successful neck lift is establishing exactly what the patient wants, isolating any physical aspects the patient needs to know and consider before the procedure and then performing the surgery with a detailed plan. It is very important to me that my patients have their expectations met and getting end result that sometimes requires thorough explanations and strong communication." Dr. Jules Feledy
