When people look in the mirror and hope to see a vibrant self, it’s often not one’s face but the neck just below it that disappoints. As we age, skin elasticity diminishes, and platysma muscles (vertical muscles in the neck) loosen. This can result in sagging skin, often referred to as “turkey neck,” and the emergence of vertical bands in the neck area.  Weight loss, especially if it is accelerated by popular modern medicines, can also have this same effect.

Dr. Harrison Lee is triple board-certified, practicing plastic surgery for over 25 years. He performs all of his procedures, including neck lift surgery, with great care, safety, and success.

What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that aims to reduce sagging skin and visible signs of aging along the neck. It can include tightening and removal of excess skin, the removal of unwanted fat that may have gathered in the neck area, and tightening of the platysma bands.

This procedure can enhance your facial structure by highlighting the contours of the jawline and neck, creating a more youthful appearance. In some cases, a neck lift alone may not address a patient’s concerns. Dr. Lee may recommend a facelift in conjunction with a neck lift to achieve an overall desired result.

What Are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?

A neck lift can result in an overall more youthful appearance, enhancing both the frontal and side profile of the patient’s face. After a neck lift, many patients feel more confident about their appearance, and many have commented that they no longer feel it necessary to wear a turtleneck sweater to hide the appearance of their aging neckline. Additionally, a neck lift can:

  • Eliminate excess, sagging skin along the neck
  • Smooth neck bands and wrinkles
  • Tighten underlying muscles and tissues for a more even contour
  • Accentuate the jawline and chin for a youthful appearance

What Are My Neck Lift Options?

A neck lift can be performed alone if the patient only has aging concerns around the neck, or it can be performed with other procedures with great success. For the most comprehensive and balanced result, Dr. Lee often recommends combining a neck lift with a facelift, as these combination procedures can create a more cohesive, rejuvenated look.

Am I a Candidate for Neck Lift Surgery?

The best candidates for neck lift surgery are unhappy with loose, sagging skin around the neck. They may also have small pockets of fat or neck banding. Neck lift candidates should also be in general good health. They should be nonsmokers or are willing to quit, and have reasonable expectations for results.

How Is Neck Lift Surgery Performed?

Board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery), Dr. Lee is the most qualified and experienced surgeon to entrust with your neck lift surgery.

Dr. Lee will utilize several techniques for your surgery based on your specific needs. Neck lift incisions are typically hidden in the hairline and behind the ears. If platysma band tightening warrants it, a small incision may be made beneath the chin in a well-hidden area.

How Much Does Neck Lift Surgery Cost?

The total cost of neck lift surgery in Beverly Hills, CA, or New York, NY, depends on your specific surgical plan. Each procedure that Dr. Lee performs is wholly unique to the needs and goals of the patient, so it will differ from person to person. Some factors that contribute to the cost of your neck lift include the type of anesthesia used, the amount of necessary work or revision work, and whether you have combined your neck lift with any other procedures.

Once Dr. Lee has created a surgical plan for you and it has been agreed upon, he will provide you with an accurate cost estimate.

How Long Is Neck Lift Recovery?

During the initial days of your recovery, you may experience some soreness, swelling, and bruising. Typically, the majority of these symptoms subside within the first two weeks; however, the healing process continues over the next few months. Patients generally report minimal pain with this procedure, and with Dr. Lee’s approval, most are able to resume normal activities after four weeks.

When Will I See My Neck Lift Results?

Most patients will see a significant improvement about the time the sutures are removed. However, swelling and internal healing will continue, and final results may not be seen for several months.

  • Will I have scars after my neck lift surgery?

    All surgical procedures carry the risk of scarring. However, Dr. Lee has perfected techniques to place incisions in discreet areas so that any visible scarring is easily hidden. Over time, most scarring should fade.

  • Can neck lift surgery improve my overall appearance?

    Dr. Lee is a skilled facial plastic surgeon with a keen eye for aesthetic proportions and harmony of the face. While neck lift surgery improves the overall appearance of the neck area, some patients may need a facelift in conjunction with a neck lift to achieve the full aesthetic result they desire.

  • Will my neck lift surgery results be permanent?

    The results of your neck lift surgery are designed to reduce the appearance of aging in the neck area. However, no cosmetic procedure can stop the natural aging process, and other changes to the body, such as weight fluctuations, can affect the procedure’s results.

    Barring any unusual circumstances, your neck will never look as droopy and banded as it would have had neck lift surgery not been performed. Most patients can enjoy a smooth, tightened neck for years to come.
