"Dr Chidester and his staff are truly amazing! Every time I walk into his office his staff greets me with a smile and makes me feel so comfortable and important! Dr Chidester is amazing at what he does! I have had 4 breast augmentations over the past 25 years (with Two of those in the past year) I was never happy with the way they looked, it seemed like nobody was listening when I would tell them the look I wanted :( I heard about Dr Chidester from a friend and decided to go in for a consult to see if there was anything he could do to give me the look I wanted, long story short, I am 2 weeks post-op and could not be happier with the results!! I look at them everyday and cry! This is what I have wanted for all those years!! He can do miracles!! I can’t thank him enough for changing my body and my life at 52!!

Is A Neck Lift For You?
Individuals seeking neck lift treatment generally have visibly loose skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by several factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin causes an older, unbecoming look, which generally requires skin removal and tightening to reduce the issue. If you maintain a healthy weight, but you feel embarrassed by loose skin and wrinkles along the neck, a neck lift may work well for you. Unfortunately, because a neck lift is more invasive, the procedure is not ideal for patients who experience allergic reactions with anesthesia. If that is the case, Dr. Chiddy can discuss other nonsurgical treatment options.
During a neck lift procedure, Dr. Chiddy will use IV sedation or general anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable. He will place the incision behind or in front of your ears and potentially create another one under your chin. If you do have pockets of fat in the neck, we first perform liposuction. Following that, any sagging or hanging skin is removed and then gently tightened. We will repeat this technique until the desired profile is attained. Although Dr. Chiddy uses sutures, your small scars are located under the chin so other people cannot easily see them.
What to Expect
After a neck lift treatment, you will likely experience some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these side effects will subside in a couple of weeks. To promote proper healing, you should rest and avoid strenuous movements and activities for several weeks. While recovering, patients should not wear fitted clothing near or on the neck. Almost immediately, you should see a dramatic difference in your profile. While turning back the hands of time, neck lift surgery can make a big impact on your profile.
