Neck Lift in Virginia Beach
The neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure designed to improve the appearance of the neck. Dr. Kyle Choe is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in face and neck procedures and is considered a top provider of the neck lift in Virginia Beach.
What Does a Neck Lift Treat?
Changes in the face and neck are the most obvious and earliest signs of aging. Many people develop a “turkey waddle,” as it is often called. This unwanted look is caused as the sheet-like platysma muscle in the neck begins to sag. These bands become thick and cord-like and dangle between the jawbone and the collarbone.
This becomes very unsightly for both men and women who are very “age-conscious” and who prefer not to live with these unwelcome signs of aging. Platysmaplasty necklift (most always performed with neck liposuction and full lower facelift) can correct this problem and turn back the clock.

You should be looking presentable to return to work within 7-10 days.
No. You will have swelling, bruising, some numbness and “pulling sensation” from the liposuction. This is normal and will be managed with pain medication. All symptoms decrease daily and are gone within a few short weeks.

No. Dr. Choe will make the incisions very inconspicuous by hiding them behind your ears and under your chin. They are made in “natural crease lines” so they are barely visible and heal very well. They are not noticeable at all after a few weeks.
