What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that addresses signs of aging on the neck or along the jawline. As we age, collagen and elastin production slows down and the delicate skin on the neck is especially vulnerable to visible signs of aging like sagging, lines, and volume loss. Some individuals also experience neck concerns that are related to hereditary traits or stress. A neck lift can address concerns like jowls, a double chin, loose skin, or long visible bands on the neck.
What are my neck lift options?
Your neck lift will specifically address your concerns in the neck and chin area, smoothing and lifting excess skin and fat for a smoother, more youthful appearance. A neck lift can often be combined with a facelift for total rejuvenation. During your consultation your surgeon will outline the options and specifics of your surgery, demonstrating the approach that suits your concerns.
What are the risks of a neck lift?
Neck lift results can be incredibly rewarding for patients who want a more youthful, smooth neck profile. Risks can include nerve damage, deep venous thrombosis, scarring, numbness, or facial asymmetry. To minimize risks, it’s important to choose a qualified, experienced surgeon who can demonstrate a legacy of successful surgeries and happy patients, and to feel comfortable asking questions so you understand how your surgical team is working to provide a safe, comfortable experience for you.
Neck Lift Surgery
A neck lift procedure may take several hours. During surgery, your surgeon will make several small incisions, often in front and behind your ears and under your chin. The muscles of the neck are lifted and excess fat and skin is removed. Once the surgical procedure is complete, incisions are closed and a pressure dressing will be applied to aid in healing.
After neck lift surgery, your recovery will take place over several weeks. Sutures generally heal quickly and can be removed in 5-10 days. Most patients experience some bruising and swelling after surgery and will need to ease slowly back into everyday life, but your surgical team will provide detailed instructions on aftercare and recovery to maximize healing and minimize any discomfort.
