Deep neck contouring, which utilizes a combination of procedures, is one of our most requested facial plastic surgery procedures. This exquisite technique is sought by individuals looking to refine their facial harmony and silhouette, and is quite popular with younger patients. This intricate procedure, performed by our double board certified facial plastic surgeons, serves as a transformative tool, accentuating the jawline, neck, and overall facial profile. Interested in learning more? Here are the top five things to know about deep neck contouring.

  1. Precision in Technique: Deep neck contouring, also known as neck sculpting, involves intricate surgical maneuvers to refine the contours of the neck and jawline. Our surgeons employ specialized techniques to tighten the neck muscles, often utilizing liposuction, a chin implant, and sometimes excising the submandibular gland, to sculpt the neck’s shape and enhance definition. The procedure demands a keen understanding of facial anatomy to achieve balanced, natural-looking results.
  2. Customized Approach: No two individuals are the same, and neither are their anatomies or aesthetic aspirations. Part of what makes deep neck contouring so successful is its personalized approach. Drs. Quatela, Lee, and Montague meticulously assess each patient’s unique facial structure, considering factors like skin elasticity, fat distribution, and bone structure. This tailored strategy ensures that the contouring aligns seamlessly with the patient’s desired outcome, promoting a harmonious facial balance.
  3. Combination with Other Procedures: Deep neck contouring often works well with complementary procedures to maximize aesthetic outcomes. It frequently accompanies facelifts to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. This combination allows for a holistic enhancement, addressing multiple aspects of facial aesthetics in a single surgical session.
  4. Recovery and Downtime: Understanding the recovery process is crucial for individuals considering deep neck contouring. While recovery experiences can vary, patients typically experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort post-surgery. We will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery. Patients are advised to allow adequate time for rest to optimize healing and achieve optimal results, but most are able to return to work in 1 week depending on the nature of their job, and can resume exercising at 3 weeks post-op.
  5. Long-Term Results and Maintenance: Patience is key when anticipating the results of deep neck contouring. While initial improvements are visible, final outcomes gradually emerge as swelling subsides and tissues settle. With a healthy lifestyle and proper skincare regimen, patients can enjoy long-lasting results. However, aging and lifestyle factors can impact their longevity, and sometimes complementary procedures are beneficial in maintaining the desired look.

The artistry of deep neck contouring exemplifies the combination of surgical precision and aesthetic finesse, empowering individuals to redefine their facial contours with confidence. As with any surgical procedure, thorough consultation and collaboration with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons remains paramount in achieving satisfying and harmonious results.
