Neck Lift

Refresh Your Look with Neck Lift Surgery

While most people tend to track the signs of aging by focusing on the face, your neck is typically the first part of your body to display visible signs of aging. These signs include wrinkling, loose skin, excess fat, muscle banding, the “turkey wattle,” jowl lines, a double chin, and/or some combination thereof. Whether your neck displays such signs or retains its smooth, well-defined features depends to some degree on hereditary factors, excess sun exposure, and stress.

Whatever the cause, aging will eventually impact your neck, which in turn compromises the features of your chin, face, and profile. However, you can recover the youthful look and definition of your neck at Southwest Florida’s Naples Plastic Surgery. With impeccable cosmetic surgery skill, Dr. Paul M. Gardner, Dr. Leo M. Baccaro, and Dr. Jason Crespo can tailor surgical and minimally invasive procedures designed to help contour a smoother neck area that can help make you look younger, refine the jawline, and restore youthful facial proportions.

Neck Lift at Naples Plastic Surgery

The full neck lift procedure (lower rhytidectomy) is the primary surgical option used to correct visible signs of aging and associated neck area imperfections. The neck lift procedure was the ninth most popular cosmetic surgery in 2019, according to the most recent statistics report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Almost 55,000 neck lifts were performed across the U.S. during the year, a two percent increase from the 53,571 neck lifts performed in 2018.

A neck lift is almost always performed as an outpatient procedure conducted under general anesthesia or intravenous injection. The neck lift involves making small incisions in front of and behind the ears, along with a smaller one under the chin. These incisions allow your surgeon to tighten neck muscles and related tissues, remove excess fat and sagging skin. The remaining skin and tissue are repositioned to achieve the most favorable contours possible and the incisions are then stitched close.

Neck Lift Combined with Other Procedures

Some patients opt to undergo a neck lift in conjunction with other facial surgical procedures in order to address all signs of aging or other compromised skin conditions. This includes combining a neck lift with a facelift, a mini facelift, chin augmentation, or a rhinoplasty. Some patients combine the neck lift with Botox®, to relax muscles that cause neck bands, and in some cases dermal fillers or fat transfers are used for additional treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Liposuction With or Without a Neck Lift

Naples Plastic Surgery offers neck liposuction as a stand-alone procedure for those who may not need a full neck lift. Stand-alone neck liposuction is most effective at improving the definition of the neckline and reducing the look of a double chin. Your surgeon may recommend combining neck liposuction in conjunction with a neck lift as the best means for correcting sagging skin and the turkey wattle. Neck liposuction can also be effective when used in conjunction with some minimally invasive procedures. This includes Precistion Tx®, a laser procedure designed to enhance the contours and aesthetics of the neck and jawline.
