Covid - 19 Update

As everyone is aware , the world is in an unprecedented time as a result of Covid-19. This virus has the ability to cause great harm to a small portion of our population but requires diligence from everyone in order to reduce the potential for un-necessary deaths. Due to the current level of concern with respect to the global pandemic we are rescheduling the following types of visit as follows:

All Surgeries

All NEW patient visits

All Filler and Botox Visits

All Aesthetician treatments

We will be rescheduling everything as soon as we have the ability to do so based on best practice and current knowledge of safety.

Dr. Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Boileau will continue to see early follow up post-operative patients although the dates and times will be a little more restricted and spread out in order to limit  patient contact in our waiting room and allow physical distancing. We ask that you stay home and re-schedule if; you have travelled out of the country in the past 14 days, if you have a cough, fever or cold/flu symptoms. 

We understand that this is a very stressful time for everyone and that many people have made significant commitments and changed life plans to have appointments and treatments scheduled. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience that this will cause.

We greatly appreciate your support and trust in the doctors and staff at the Landings Surgical Centre. We are optimistic that this will be short lived but not able to predict the timing to a more normal lifestyle.

We kindly ask that you accept that we will do our best to respond to you in a timely fashion. Please understand that we are working through some difficult staffing issues that may require you to leave a voice message should you try to call. 

We will continue to provide retail sales of all Aesthetic products which can be either mailed or picked up (again with limited hours). Should you wish to support local during these difficult times please reach out to us and we will keep you replenished with the products that you have been accustomed to.

We are here for you now and in the future.

Remove Excess Tissue and Tighten Skin with a Neck Lift

One of the first areas that can begin to show signs of aging is your neck. This area of the body can begin to sag, causing loose skin and wrinkles. With a neck lift at our Halifax, Nova Scotia, practice, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau can eliminate excess fat and tissue to rejuvenate your appearance. A neck lift is often paired with a facelift, but can be performed by itself. To begin planning your custom surgery, contact The Landings Surgical Centre today.

Are You a Candidate?

If you struggle with any of the following concerns, a neck lift may be a good solution:

  • Loose skin on your neck
  • Deep horizontal creases or bands
  • Loose skin hanging between your chin and neck
  • Double or triple chin, despite being at a healthy weight
  • Displaced pockets of fat in your neck

Results are often more harmonious when patients undergo a neck lift at the same as a facelift. Our surgeons may recommend that you complete both procedures. However, if you have undergone a facelift in the past, a neck lift can enhance its effects. 

We will consider your overall health when determining whether a neck lift is right for you. To qualify for cosmetic surgery, you must have a healthy immune system, good skin elasticity, and no medical conditions that could compromise healing.

Procedure Details

The techniques used in neck lift surgery can vary from patient to patient, based largely on the treatment goals. The first step will typically involve administration of anesthesia, to make you comfortable during your procedure. Some patients only require local anesthesia and a sedative, while others may choose general anesthesia.

Neck lift surgery can greatly enhance your look, while appearing subtle and natural. Few people may even notice that you had surgery, but most will notice your younger, slimmer look.

During a traditional neck lift, we will make incisions behind the ears and under the chin. Since the incisions are carefully hidden behind your ears and hair, scarring should be minimal. Through these incisions, we will trim extra skin and tighten the underlying muscles. Once the procedure has been completed, the incisions will be sutured close. 

If you desire less dramatic results, we may perform a limited-incision neck lift, placing the incisions around your ears only. We may also perform liposuction to remove unwanted or displaced fat pockets, or directly sculpt fat from unwanted areas of the neck to achieve the most precise results possible.

In some cases, you can enjoy stunning results by combining a neck lift with dermal fillers. Your procedure details will be reviewed with you at your initial consultation. Generally, neck lift surgery lasts two to three hours. 

Benefits of a Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery can greatly enhance your look, while appearing subtle and natural. Few people may even notice that you had surgery, but most will notice your younger, slimmer look. Neck lifts can also provide the following benefits:

  • Personalized treatment
  • Can easily be combined with other cosmetic procedures
  • Rapid recovery period
  • Long-lasting results, with minimal scarring
  • Commonly performed procedure, with few potential risks
  • Rejuvenated appearance
  • Boosts self-confidence
