What Is the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™?

Restore a youthful neck and jawline to love how you look.

The Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ is an innovative procedure designed to improve the contour of your neck and jawline with minimal incisions and a fast recovery. Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, a pioneer and specialist in facial plastic surgery, created the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ to rejuvenate the neckline with a procedure that has a much shorter recovery time than a traditional facelift. Several leading health and beauty publications, including Allure magazine, have recognized Dr. Clevens for his highly effective, minimally invasive techniques.

All Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lifts™ are performed by Dr. Clevens and Renata Khelemsky, MD, who specialize in facial plastic surgery. Hear Dr. Clevens explain how the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ can tighten up your neckline and reduce unwelcome signs of aging.

The Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ Procedure

Modern techniques for exceptional, long-lasting results.

During the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™, Dr. Clevens and Dr. Khelemsky use a laser liposculpture technique to contour the fat in the neck and chin areas, followed by surgical lifting and gentle tightening of the underlying muscle tissues and shrink-wrap of the skin. A small incision is hidden within the natural fold under the chin and behind each ear. This is performed with the use of a slender laser fiber that is passed beneath the surface of the skin to shrink and tighten excess tissues and restore your youthful neckline.

The Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ FAQ

Why is it called the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™?

Our patients started using this name because they felt they could easily recover from this procedure over the weekend and return to their normal activities the next week. Although there are still small sutures in front of the ear, these can easily be hidden with the hair. In most cases, any bruising has also been minimal and easy to hide.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Many people today who show signs of aging aren’t candidates for a “full facelift.” In most cases, the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ is an ideal solution for the 40-55 year old with early sagging of the upper neck and jowl area. Your personal consultation with Dr. Clevens or Dr. Khelemsky is the best method for determining if the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ is suitable for you.

How is the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ Performed?

The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation. A small, hidden incision is created in the natural fold under the chin. Then, instead of using a scalpel, Dr. Clevens or Dr. Khelemsky use a laser, liposuction, and sometimes a chin implant to improve the appearance of a sagging face, jowls, and neck.

Is there much discomfort with the procedure?

The Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ helps patients achieve natural-looking results with minimal discomfort.

How soon can I return to work and play?

It is generally recommended that patients “take it easy” for a week after the procedure. Many patients say they feel nearly normal that afternoon. However, by the next morning they sometimes experience minimal discomfort. After a short recovery, the patient can return to normal activity. The only evidence that the procedure has been performed is a dramatically improved appearance and a tiny incision hidden in the natural fold under the chin.

How long do the results of a Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ last?

The duration of results after these surgeries varies from patient to patient. After the excess or redundant tissues are removed, they do not return. Excess tissue that may appear after surgery is due to the fact that the natural aging process has continued.

Remember, we cannot stop the aging process with any surgical or nonsurgical methods. Factors like heredity, lifestyle, sun exposure, and general health all contribute to the progression of aging. As far as the contour of the neckline is concerned, in the experienced hands of Dr. Clevens or Dr. Khelemsky, the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™ lasts as long as a conventional facelift.

Will I know what I will look like after surgery?

In your consultation, we will explain the results you can expect to see. Dr. Clevens or Dr. Khelemsky will perform a facial analysis and inform you of the expected benefits of surgery. Often, computerized preview imaging or video imaging may help illustrate your possible expected result after your procedure. We encourage you to be honest and forthcoming in your desired results, so we can understand your needs and your outcome will be as close to your expectations as possible. Nevertheless, no doctor can show you exactly what you will look like after your procedure.

How do I ensure a successful surgery?

A successful surgery depends on who performs the procedure and the preoperative and postoperative quality of patient care. Here are a few things to look for and ask about before your procedure:

  • Find an educated, experienced surgeon who specializes in facial procedures like Dr. Clevens or Dr. Khelemsky. All our time and resources are dedicated to this facial procedure specialty.
  • Ask where your procedure will be performed. Dr. Clevens and Dr. Khelemsky operate in an accredited surgical facility or at a hospital. We exceed the standards required for medical care to ensure our patients’ comfort.
  • Ask about your postoperative care. All of our patients are given procedure-specific instructions to follow that are designed to achieve optimal results. Our doctors and clinical care team also follow up with our patients and their progress for a full year to ensure recovery and healing is on track as expected.
