Neck Lift

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the neck by tightening the skin and underlying muscles. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag, leading to the development of wrinkles, lines, and folds. In addition, the muscles in the neck can become weakened, leading to the development of a "turkey neck" or jowls. A neck lift can address all of these concerns and restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance to the neck area.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?

Good candidates for a neck lift are generally individuals who are in good overall health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Ideal candidates may have:

Sagging skin around the neck and jawline
Excess fat or fullness under the chin
A double chin or jowls
Vertical neck bands or wrinkles
A generally aged or tired appearance
It is important to note that a neck lift is not a weight loss procedure and is not suitable for individuals who are significantly overweight or have a large amount of excess skin.

The Neck Lift Procedure

The neck lift procedure typically involves several steps:

Anesthesia: The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia depending on the complexity and extent of the procedure.

Incisions: The surgeon will make incisions in inconspicuous areas, such as behind the ears or under the chin. The length and location of the incisions will depend on the extent of the procedure.

Liposuction: If there is excess fat under the chin or along the jawline, the surgeon may perform liposuction to remove it.

Muscle tightening: The surgeon will tighten the muscles in the neck to create a more defined contour.

Skin tightening: The surgeon will then remove any excess skin and pull the remaining skin taut to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Closure: The incisions will be closed with sutures, and dressings will be applied to protect the incisions.


After a neck lift, patients can expect some swelling and bruising in the neck and jawline area, which typically subsides within a few weeks. Pain and discomfort can be managed with medication prescribed by the surgeon. Most patients can return to work and regular activities within two weeks of the procedure. Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for several weeks after the procedure.


The results of a neck lift can be long-lasting, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle and good skin care habits. Patients can expect a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance in the neck area, which can improve overall facial balance and harmony.


A neck lift can be an effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of the neck and create a more youthful and refreshed appearance. If you are considering a neck lift, it is important to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations, as well as the risks and benefits of the procedure. With proper care and maintenance, the results of a neck lift can last for many years, helping you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.
