How To Know If a Neck Lift Is Right For You

Ideal candidates for this procedure will have excess skin below the chin (often called a turkey neck), sagging jowls or a sagging platysma muscle. Patients that are healthy non-smokers generally get better results and are therefore preferred.

If the cosmetic problem you exhibit is caused by excess fat, you may be a better candidate for liposuction of the chin and neck. If you are also concerned about sagging facial skin, Dr. Setty may recommend combining neck lift surgery with a facelift.

How Neck Lift Surgery Is Performed

During a neck lift, loose skin is separated from underlying tissue and gently pulled up and back. Excess skin is removed, while sagging muscles and connective tissues are repositioned and tightened. Fatty deposits may be removed from the chin and neck. Small sutures are used to close the incisions.

The neck lift recovery period lasts about 1-2 weeks, by which time most swelling and bruising has resolved. Within a few months, you will see the final results of your neck lift and enjoy a firmer, smoother neck area.
