What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift focuses on removing excess fat and skin that leaves a sagging look to the lower face, under the chin and on the neck. It is not uncommon that the aging process affects the neck before impacting the face. A neck lift may be performed so the neck can be smoothed and free from wrinkles, folds and vertical bands. A neck lift creates a defined and revitalized neck which improves your entire appearance in a subtle, but dramatic way.

What a Neck Lift Can and Can’t Do

A neck lift cannot change your basic appearance. It creates a tighter and more youthful shape to your neck. Excess wrinkling on the neck can make a person look far older than they actually are. A Neck lift is a surgical procedure. Non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as fillers, fat freezing and skin tighteners cannot produce the same results. However, some of these procedures can delay the need for surgery.

We are focused on providing our patients with the best skincare, aesthetics treatments, and cosmetic surgery available anywhere in the world. You can be sure that your neck lift will be done to the highest professional standards by our acclaimed plastic surgeons.

Who Can Take the Best Advantage of a Neck Lift?

  • As with any surgery, you need to be in good health.
  • You should have no medical issues that would complicate healing.
  • You should be a non-smoker. Smoking is generally bad for skin elasticity and can inhibit the healing and recovery process.
  • If your neck is considerably more wrinkled than your face, a neck lift can restore a more youthful, fresh look.
  • People who are stably at a normal, healthy weight or close to it and will maintain this weight.

Are There Risks Involved in a Neck Lift?

While any surgery carries some risks, our surgeons have performed hundreds of cosmetic surgery procedures safely and with amazing results. It is important to remember that any procedure is as good as the surgeon performing it. Our surgeons are highly qualified with extensive experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

Risks can involve bleeding under the skin, thick scars, blood clots, infection, improper healing and nerve injury. However, our surgeons’ in-depth consultation and detailed examination coupled with their expert skill at both the surgical procedure and the art of sculpting the body makes most of these risks unlikely.

Are There Different Types of Neck Lifts?

Depending upon your desired outcome and the condition of your neck, your neck lift may come with several options:

  • Liposuction. This is often a choice for patients with resilient skin and a neck that needs only moderate redefinition.
  • Cervicoplasty. Recommended for overweight patients, this procedure involves a small incision under the chin to tighten the underlying muscles. Excess skin and fat will also be removed.
  • Submentoplasty. If you are at your proper weight and only a moderate amount of loose skin. An incision is made in the curve of the neck and the muscles underneath are tightened. This is the shortest procedure of these three and usually takes less than an hour.
