Neck Lift

Achieve a Contoured Neck Profile


Aging Neck

The skin and underlying muscles of the neck loosen and sag with age. This is the result of decreased collagen, increased skin and tissue laxity, and muscle weakening. This may also happen to people who have lost a large amount of weight. A neck lift tightens the neck for a more youthful appearance.

When skin resurfacing does not provide sufficient rejuvenation, a neck lift may be your best option to a more tightened, youthful neck. A neck lift may be done alone or in conjunction with a facelift. Areas that a neck lift alone cannot treat include the jawline and jowls. Combination neck lift with facelift can provide a more global and complete appearance of rejuvenation.

A Neck Lift can treat: Loose skin of the neck, Vertical muscle bands at the middle of the neck, Excess fat under the chin, and Excess fat in the neck.

What to Expect?

A neck lift suspends the muscles and skin of the neck in an upward direction. Incisions are hidden within natural creases under the chin, around the ear, and along the hairline. The underlying muscle is tightened to improve the contour of the neck. Excess skin is then removed to smooth the outward appearance of the neck.

What are the side effects and downtime for a neck lift?

    • It typically takes about two weeks to recover from a neck lift. Pain is typically mild, and associated with swelling which may last 3-4 days. A pressure bandage is worn during the first week. After 10-14 days, you may return to work. By this time, swelling and bruising have largely resolved and you are presentable again to the public. Exercise may be resumed after two weeks.
    • Contraindications to a neck lift surgery includes prior radiation to the neck, active skin infection, smoking, and autoimmune skin disorders.
