About the Neck Lift Procedure

Through neck lift surgery, we help patients get rid of the unappealing “turkey neck” and create a smooth, contoured neck and jaw. In most cases, we place the incisions behind the ears or under the surface of the chin. We may use liposuction to remove excess fat and tighten the skin. Most of the time, a neck lift is performed in conjunction with a facelift.

What is the Average Age for a Neck Lift?

Individuals in their 20s and 30s may benefit from a neck lift, especially those who have experienced a massive weight loss or have a hereditary defect of the neck. Patients in their 60s and 70s often undergo a neck lift to cosmetically treat the visible signs of aging. 

“I have wanted to have my neck lifted for some time, and PVPS made it easy and affordable to do. The skill of the doctor and the courtesy and kindness of the staff was remarkable and much appreciated. I am very happy with the results.”

Neck Lift or Chin Augmentation?

Some patients have issues with their neck that are actually be the result of a “weak” chin. Without the proper support of the chin bone, the neck isn’t able to have a defined contour.

A chin implant (genioplasty or mentoplasty) may be recommended to re-shape the chin and make it wider or more prominent. This can have a great impact on the neck for many patients. This surgery is considered a reconstructive procedure and requires the skill of an experienced surgeon. Please note that a neck lift may still be needed once the chin has been corrected.

Neck Lift Surgical Techniques

A neck lift is considered an outpatient procedure, and is performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. This surgery typically takes two hours to complete, but that will vary by surgical case.

A neck lift can address several issues, including the removal of excess fat, the trimming of hanging skin, and the tightening of loose skin around the underlying neck muscles. 

An incision is made under the chin, and in some cases, behind or in front of the ears. If fat removal is part of this surgery, liposuction will be the first step. Next, the neck muscles (platysma) are pulled tight and the overlying skin is stretched and re-draped to achieve the desired definition. Sutures are placed deep within the neck wall, and a drain may be inserted to control bleeding.

After surgery, there will be some bruising and swelling. Patients will feel tightness and a pulling sensation as the neck adjusts to its new position. Most patients are able to return to work within 10-14 days. It can take several months for optimal results to appear and for the neck to look and feel natural.  


Is a non-surgical neck lift available?

Will I have scars after a neck lift?

Is a non-surgical neck lift available?

Loose skin within the neck is a distinct flaw that can only be removed through surgery. Unfortunately, this is the only true way to redefine a person’s neck and add the necessary definition needed to improve the contour and profile.

Will I have scars after a neck lift?

A neck lift does require an incision under the chin and near the ears. However, these are placed inconspicuously (within the hairline on the ears and under the chin) so looking straight ahead, you will not see them. We make every effort during surgery to minimize visible scarring as much as possible.
