Neck Lift Surgery and Alternative Procedures

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Wednesday, February 11, 2015

If your goal is to remove excess skin from your neck, your Orlando cosmetic surgeon may recommend surgery. During this procedure, your surgeon makes an incision either under your chin or behind your ears. This incision allows him/her to access the platysma muscle in your neck. The platysma muscle is located in the chest and front of the neck on the human body, and controls your lower jaw. Your surgeon accesses this muscle to either alter or remove it. This allows for the skin around the muscle to tighten up. It is possible that this procedure is performed endoscopically, which leaves a smaller incision mark.


Another procedure that may be used to remove excess skin is liposuction. Orlando liposuction would remove excess fat found in your chin and lower neck area. Your surgeon uses a small incision to access the area in your lower face. It is important to follow your plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding care for your incisions after receiving liposuction. On the other hand, BOTOX Cosmetic injections can be used as an alternate or in conjunction to surgery. These injections help the platysma muscle relax and make the neck have a fuller appearance.

BOTOX Cosmetic is Very Easy to Administer

Dr. Richard Arabitg,MD - Tuesday, November 04, 2014

When you receive a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment from your Orlando plastic surgeon, a substance called acetylcholine is released into your body. Acetylcholine helps temporarily reduce the muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form. The result is the reduction of the appearance of the unwanted wrinkle lines.


During your initial consultation with Dr. Arabitg, he will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to create the best treatment plan for your needs. If you are looking to reduce wrinkles in the crow’s feet area, the treatment plan will include injections into the muscle that surrounds the eye. This muscle has three areas, and the treatment has three injections per eye. To treat the area between the eyebrows, five doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are injected into two of the muscles in our forehead. These treatments are very easy to administer, and typically do not take any longer than ten minutes.
