Neck Lift Surgery

A neck lift or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. The loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a variety of factors; including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress.

What is Neck Lift Surgery?

A neck lift is a set of procedures to enhance the appearance of your neck. Procedures can include:

Removing excess skin
Removing or altering neck muscles
Liposuction to remove excess fat
Botox injections to address problems with fullness or "bands"
Kybella injections to remove excess fat under the chin

What neck lift surgery can't do?

As a restorative surgery, a neck lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. A neck lift can only be performed surgically; nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a neck lift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.

Too much skin in the neck area;

Just like the platysmaplasty, your surgeon will make similar incisions for a cervicoplasty, trimming parts of the skin and lifting it into place. It will be secured with tissue glue or stitches. The cervicoplasty can be completed in about two to four hours, depending on the complexity of your procedure. Again, your anesthesia will depend on your own personal comfort level.
