About Neck Lift Surgery

Are you tired of wearing turtlenecks or scarves even in warm weather to hide the loose, flabby skin on your neck? Plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz offers neck lift surgery to correct the appearance of an aging neck. This cosmetic surgery recontours and reshapes the section beneath your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By excising the sagging skin and fat while introducing a tightening method to create a tauter neckline, this procedure at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX can provide striking enhancements to the bottom region of your face.

Ideal Candidates

Patients hoping to undergo neck lift surgery generally have visibly loose, hanging skin in the neck region. This skin deformity is generally caused by several factors including major weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, sagging neck skin creates an unflattering look, which can only be corrected with skin removal and tightening. If you are at a healthy weight but you feel challenged by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift may be a suitable option.

Surgical Technique

During a neck lift procedure, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind or in front of your ears, and another one may be placed under your chin. If pockets of fat exist, liposuction of the neck would first be performed. Following that, any loose skin will be removed and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This technique is repeated until the desired shape and contour has been attained. Although sutures are used, scars should not be visible since they reside under your chin. An injection such as Kybella may also be used to enhance your results. In addition, other nonsurgical options can help the surface of the neck, such as a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing, to create a vibrantly glowing appearance.

What to Expect

After a neck lift treatment, there will likely be some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these effects will fade around 7 – 10 days. You should rest and avoid strenuous movements and activities for 2 – 3 weeks to assist in the recovery. During this time, clothing should not touch the neck area. You should see visible results almost immediately. In fact, it has been said that the neck lift treatment can make one of the biggest impacts to your profile, shaving years off your appearance.
