A Neck Lift, also known as a Platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure to address sagging skin and excess fat around the neck and jaw line. Weakened muscles may be removed, repaired and/or tightened during the surgery and loose skin is removed to give a firm and defined jawline. The Neck Lift may be performed in conjunction with a Face Lift but both can be done separately. Results should appear natural and the average recovery time for this procedure is 3 to 4 weeks, and it is important to not do any strenuous activity during this time.Request a Consultation
Dr. Timothy Zelko is a Board Certified Physician who has been in practice for 24 years. In the Fall of 2005, he became interested in adding liposuction procedures to his aesthetic practice.
Liposuction has been and still is the most common aesthetic procedure performed in the US, averaging approximately 500,000 procedures per year. Dr. Zelko realized that this huge demand was significantly tempered by the fear of pain, complications and cost of the procedure.
Dr. Zelko’s due diligence led to the discovery of Office Liposuction technologies. These procedures addressed this huge demand while simultaneously delivering a new a level of safety, comfort and acceptability. And even though the anesthetic technology to allow this procedure to be done painlessly in an office setting had been available for the previous 20 years; the liposuction technology was just starting to develop.
Dr. Zelko is a faculty member of The Society of Aesthetics in Medicine and offers monthly courses to physicians in Tumescent Technique and Office Liposuction. He takes great pride in this appointment and feels personally responsible for the success of his students.
He currently devotes all his practice time to the delivery of aesthetic medicine. His years as an obstetrician/gynecologist has allowed him to develop a gentle and empathetic bedside manner, has enabled him to hone his surgical skills and enhance his ability to communicate and educate his patients. All the above translates into an exceptional experience for his current aesthetic patients, both men and women alike.
