For quite a few people considering a neck lift, the potential for scars is a major drawback, particularly in an area where scarring would be noticeable. That is why, for Dr. Paul Lanfranchi, meticulous attention to detail is more than just a priority; it’s a specialty and discipline.
The TLC Lift™
Our most popular procedure, the TLC Lift™ concentrates on the lower face, jawline, jowls, and sagging of the skin of the neck. The neck area is of particular concern to many patients, who feel premature signs of aging show there most when the skin becomes “crepey,” sometimes referred to as “turkey/chicken neck.” But you don’t have to live with neck folds, sagging skin, or a drooping chin any longer. The Lanfranchi Center can help.
What about Scars?
No matter how small the incisions, there may be potential minor scarring. However, Dr. Lanfranchi specializes in only the face and neck. He’s experienced in the latest techniques available to minimize scarring for face and neck lift procedures. Often, incisions can be hidden in natural skin folds, around the ears, and under the chin, so they’re barely noticeable except by those who know where to look.
Each patient’s healing abilities are different. Some patients may experience very little sign they’ve undergone a cosmetic procedure. For others, there are techniques that can help minimize scarring as much as possible. Women with longer hair can successfully cover the incisions completely, and makeup can be used to conceal anything the hair does not hide. Even patients with short hair, who don’t wear makeup—including men—can use topical ointments, such as vitamin E oil, 6 weeks after the procedure. Gently massaging the topical treatments into the incision will soften the tissue, lighten the color, and over time, the incisions will become far less noticeable.
Post-Operative Care Speeds Healing
Comprehensive post-procedure care instructions will be given to you to maximize the positive outcome of your TLC Lift™ and minimize complications, including poor wound healing. During your consultation, your Team TLC consultant will answer questions and address any concerns you may have. You’ll receive a detailed explanation of the procedure itself, so any incision locations can be discussed at that time, particularly if part of your treatment includes the excision of loose skin.
Don’t panic if, after your TLC Lift™, you experience reddened, raised incisions for several weeks or months. Your body’s healing process takes time, and the application and gentle massage with topical treatments will help the scars fade and soften to the point where they’re hardly noticeable. The more adherent you are to the post-procedure care instructions, including the use of sunscreen and minimizing sun exposure after your TLC Lift™, the more likely your incisions are to fade significantly.
The Lanfranchi Center’s specialization in only face and neck procedures means we have mastered the experience, techniques, results, and care necessary to give our patients a top-notch outcome with compassion and heart. If the scars are a major concern to you, we can discuss all the ways in which we can minimize them, so you can book your TLC Lift™ with confidence and even excitement.
I had been considering a neck lift for quite some time. I had a few consultations over the years but never felt quite comfortable enough or ready to make the jump. Within minutes of meeting Dr Lanfranchi and his staff I knew for certain that this was the doctor for me. The entire staff was so attentive and reassuring. They are diligent and took their time to explain everything in detail and to answer all of my questions. I made my appointment for the procedure that day and left with all of my concerns having been addressed and having no doubt in the integrity of this practice. The day of procedure I was treated with the utmost respect and care. I could not have asked for a better experience. I’m now about 2 months post op and the results are so much better than I could have hoped for. I look and feel 20 years younger and the looks I get from friends and family are priceless. Dr Lanfranchi is truly an artist in his work and his staff is wonderful. I have absolutely no regrets and would do it again in a heartbeat. I look in the mirror and still can’t believe what I see and I have not felt this confident in years.
