Neck Lift

Naples Plastic Surgery

The neck area often provides some of the first indicators that the face is beginning to age. Sagging jowls, doublechin, creases, and loose skin all serve to create an image that makes us look older than we may feel. Naples Plastic Surgery can enhance the contours of the neck by tightening the skin and muscles while improving the look of the jaw. Some individuals may choose to have a neck lift alongside a facelift or liposuction procedure, but a neck lift can be performed by itself and still produce incredibly rejuvenating and transformative results.

Neck Lift Surgery in Naples

Prior to any procedure, our surgeons meet with their patient for a conversation to determine their aesthetic goals and considerations. This consultation is then used by the surgeon to develop a completely personalized treatment plan designed to help the patient achieve their goals.

For a smaller amount of contouring, patients can look into a precision liposuction of the neck instead of a full neck lift. If, however, a full neck lift is the ideal option for your cosmetic surgery goals, then a neck lift will be performed in the following manner:
  • Incisions are made in front of and behind the ear, with a smaller one under the chin.
  • The neck muscles are tightened and strengthened
  • Sagging skin and excess fat are removed
  • Remaining skin and tissue are positioned in a more pleasing manner
Your surgeon may suggest that your neck lift be performed alongside additional procedures to enhance the overall result. The combination of liposuction and skin tightening is used to repair the “turkey waddle.”

Recovering from Neck Lift Surgery

After Dr. Gardner, Dr. Walsh, or Dr. Bonett complete a neck lift surgery, they wrap patients in large, fluffy dressings to minimize swelling and encourage faster recovery periods. Neck lift patients require two weeks of recovery before engaging in social activities, however full recovery is typically complete four to six weeks after surgery when all noticeable swelling should be gone.

As with any surgical procedure, there is risk for complications, including infection. Our surgeons always review these risks with each patient prior to surgery. They then takes their respective time carefully performing each surgery, calling on their expertise and experience to help patients enjoy a healthy, pleasant recovery.
