As members of the Baby Boomer generation continue to age, they are voicing their frustrations in ways that fit their open, outspoken natures. Flabby arms, droopy breasts, jowly cheeks---nothing is off the table as a topic for examination and discussion. This includes sagging necks, in fact, so much so that I Feel Bad About My Neck is the recent title of a book of essays on aging by one of today's highly successful author/screenwriters.
Some men and women are willing to accept the natural consequences of the aging process and live with "turkey wattles" and wrinkles on their necks. Others know that a saggy neck contributes heavily to a tired, old appearance and think about taking action. Come in for a consultation with Dr. Katya Bailor to learn about your full range of cosmetic options. Neck lift is just one of the facial rejuvenation procedures we perform, and in fact many people who are good candidates for a neck lift also need a face lift in Vero Beach to fully achieve their cosmetic goals.
Whether you're serious about improving the look of your neck or just considering your options, Dr. Bailor wants you to know that, for most residents of Vero Beach, a neck lift is a straightforward procedure that can accomplish a dramatic change. Similar to a mini-facelift, it involves relatively short surgical time, minimal discomfort, few risks, and a fast and smooth recovery period.
By removing excess skin and fat and tightening muscles, a neck lift with Dr. Bailor will give you back a smooth, firm neck contour including the sharply-defined jaw line you had when you were younger. The small, fine scars from a neck lift are inconspicuous. Incisions are made between the face and ears and at the hairline where they won't show and they're carefully closed using hair-sized suture.
After your neck lift at Vero Cosmetic, you'll still look like your beautiful, natural self; just refreshed, younger, and happier. You don't need to worry about emerging with any obvious signs that you've had surgery; your skin won't have an overly "pulled" look. Dr. Frazier and Dr. Bailor have extensive training in lifting neck and facial skin, and both are experts at ridding your neck of the effects of time in a natural way. Our goal is to return your youthful appearance so you'll look as bright and energized as you feel.

Where is the surgery performed and what kind of anesthesia is used?
Procedures are typically performed at a local surgical center on an outpatient basis. A variety of anesthetics are selected in accordance with the patient's needs and the type of procedure performed. The most common types of anesthesia are IV sedation, oral anesthesia and local anesthetics. Dr. Bailor or Dr. Frazier can discuss what is most appropriate for your procedure upon your consultation.
When you come in for a consultation, we take photos of your area of concern; you may wish to take them home with you to discuss the possibilities with your family. These photos from our Mirror System can even show you some possibilities about how the neck skin can be relocated or tightened. Our office is located at 1255 37th Street, Ste. D, Vero Beach, FL 32960 directly west of Indian River Medican Center. Our office is accredited through the State of Florida Department of Health/Board of Medicine.
