NECK & FACE LIFT SURGERY

Experience a smoother, firmer, tighter neck and jaw line; restores a tight, youthful appearance to skin under the chin and neck area.

While other cosmetic surgeries may get more attention, neck lift surgery maybe the one you consider first. Often your neck is one of the first places to show your true age. And it's not just advancing age that can affect the look of your neck. Hereditary fat deposits (such as the dreaded double or even triple chin) and gravity can also take their toll. When the skin under your chin slackens, you can develop "turkey neck" or "turkey wattle."

Whether your neck is affected by age, your genes, the pull of gravity or the harsh effects of the sun and wind, neck lift surgery (platysmaplasty) or other neck contouring and rejuvenation procedures may be options. In a nutshell, a neck lift removes excess sagging skin under your jawline and on your neck. The platysma muscle of your neck can be adjusted and tightened if it has begun to separate and sag.

If you only have excess fat under your chin or along your jawline, chin liposuction alone may be enough to enhance the appearance of your neck.

Understanding Platysmaplasty or Submentoplasty

As the name implies, a necklift targets a drooping or sagging neck area. Incisions are typically shorter than those made during a traditional facelift and will normally be placed only at the earlobe and behind the ear. A platysmaplasty is commonly needed on necklift patients to remove any pronounced neck cords. Finally, the surgeon will remove any excess fat from the neck area by using liposuction or similar techniques. In patients with excellent skin elasticity, a necklift may be performed alone. More commonly, when skin elasticity is fair or poor, a facelift is performed as well, to remove excess skin that would otherwise remain.

A platysmaplasty is a procedure which targets the platysma muscle which is located beneath the skin on the neck. As part of the aging process, many people will notice that these muscles begin to protrude from the neck resulting in two neck “cords” or bands running vertically down their necks. During a platysmaplasty, the surgeon will separate the skin from the platysma muscle directly treat these cords. A platysmaplasty is commonly performed with facelifts and necklifts.

Face Lifts

While injectables such as Dysport or Bellafill can help retard some of the signs of facial aging, they are no substitute for traditional facelifts. The effects of these fillers may last anywhere from three months to two years, but a facelift's rejuvenating effects can extend more than 10 years. Derma Fillers target wrinkles and sunken areas of the face, while a facelift actually restores the lower two-thirds of the face and neck. Additionally, a facelift can remove excess skin, tighten muscles and reposition some of the underlying tissues of the face; all of these functions are way outside the realm of injectables. Obviously there really is no comparison between injectables and facelifts when it comes to their age-defying effects. That said, it's important to realize that facelift surgery (rhytidectomy or rhytidoplasty) is a major procedure with a significant recovery period and a more involved risk profile than injectables. Weighing the benefits and risks of a facelift is the best way to determine if it is the right facial cosmetic procedure for you.

  • Dr. Krupp took all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth out at once - in less than 10 minutes! I ended up just having some swelling and discomfort for a few days afterwards and that was it. His office is clean and his staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It was about as great as a surgical experience can be, definitely recommend.

  • Great OMFS center! Customer service was great. We came for my sons impacted wisdom teeth. We got there early and they accommodated us right away. Dr Krupp is a no fuss no nonsense kind of guy and he was very efficient. We were done in no time. Overall a great experience. My son was well taken cared of post op too. He had medications to help with healing, pain and infection prevention.

  • If you come here it's likely to have unpleasant dental work done. I had to have a tooth extracted after a bad root canal followed by four failed root canal retreatments. Since I had four procedures done within two weeks of having it pulled, I was a mess. They instantly put me at ease by providing a stress ball and playing positive music. I found their bedside manner to be perfect and just what I needed. I will need future work done and this is where I will come.

  • I had the best experience here! Katia and Christina was amazing. Dr Krupp was good aswell. He's a surgeon and they usually aren't too chatty...lol I would recommend this facility to everyone I know. I went in crying like a baby about having my wisdom teeth removed and they made me so comfortable. Very clean practice!

    Vikki S.

  • I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed after being referred to this place by my dentist. Dr. Krupp was my dentist and was SUPER nice. I was knocked out for the whole thing and had no probs at all. They gave me my prescriptions early so I could get them filled before the procedure and wouldn't have to stop on the way home. the place is really upscale and i would def go back if i had to.
