Do you do neck lifts? Not yet.

No matter our skill level, plastic surgeons cannot stop the aging process.  Some surgeries do a good job of turning back the clock, and certainly with a neck lift that can be the case.

It is important to keep in mind that the results of a neck lift can only be achieved surgically.

Non-surgical skin rejuvenating treatments may help delay the time before surgery becomes the best option.  Often too, non-surgical rejuvenating treatments will complement or help to maintain the results of neck lift surgery.

No matter if you are seen for a surgical or non-surgical neck lift consultation, all risks, all benefits and all alternatives should be thoroughly explained to you.

I get asked all the time to see patients for surgical neck lift consultations.  At this point in my career I am not ready to add surgical neck lifts to the list of aesthetic surgeries I offer.  As with other my other cosmetic surgeries, I’d first like to spend some time learning from the best surgeons, before I start doing these procedures solo here in Medicine Hat.

As for non-surgical neck treatments, our office certified laser technician, Dalyce S., provides skin tightening treatments with the PicoWay Resolve Laser by Candela.  When the  picosecond laser treatment is paired with a second proven modality a medical grade neck & decollete firming cream (with proven results from clinical trials) our patients are getting great results without undergoing surgery.

A bit about the PicoWay System:

  • Picosecond lasers have been demonstrated to build collagen and elastin, resulting in skin tightening.
  • PicoWay with it’s high peak power and the shortest pulse duration, delivers a photo-acoustic effect that transforms the skin.
  • The PicoWay Resolve treatment acts at the dermis without breaking the epidermis, transforming the skin with low to no downtime.
  • PicoWay is a true 3-wavelength platform for the treatment of wrinkles, acne scars, benign pigmented lesions (dark spots) and tattoos.

If you have tried it all and believe you are ready for a surgical neck lift, my office staff or I can recommend board certified plastic surgeons in Alberta who would be willing to meet with you in consultation about your neck lift.
