Neck Lift

Page Updated:

Neck lift surgery can eliminate excess skin and fat in the neck and give you a smoother, more youthful aesthetic. As we get older, the effects of aging, sun exposure, and recent weight loss can result in the loss of elasticity in the skin of the neck, causing it to take on a wrinkled, sagging appearance. Our plastic surgeons can correct drooping neck skin with results that look natural and can last for years to come. Many of our doctors at New York Plastic Surgical Group, a Division of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group have been specialty-trained and are highly experienced with plastic surgery procedures involving the head, face, and neck. Our goal is to provide you with safe and effective care, with natural-looking results that do not give away the fact that you’ve had plastic surgery.

Contact New York Plastic Surgical Group to schedule a consultation for neck lift surgery. At this initial consultation, our plastic surgeons can show you a computer-generated image with our Vectra 3-D imaging technology. This combination of imagery and specific medical data will give you a snapshot of what you may look like after neck surgery, giving you a better idea of what the potential outcome can be.

Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery can help improve the appearance of patients with loose bands of skin and fat in the neck area. Patients who have this type of aesthetic enhancement surgery typically still have some elasticity of the neck skin. Your plastic surgeon will meet with you in an initial consultation and discuss all aspects of neck lift surgery with you, including if you can benefit from a facelift in conjunction with your neck rejuvenation. At this meeting, he or she will address your concerns and discuss the best treatment options to meet your ultimate goals.

Neck Lift Procedure

A full neck lift surgery typically involves incisions made behind the ears and under the chin. Excess skin is removed and the remainder is tightened for a smoother appearance. Underlying neck muscles may also be tightened during a neck lift. The entire neck lift procedure typically lasts about three hours or less and can be completed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.

Neck lift surgery can be performed at one of our new, technologically advanced operating rooms located at our Garden City facility. Certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), our new operatories have been recognized as achieving the highest standards of care.

Neck Lift Recovery

Patients may experience some pain and discomfort in the days following neck lift surgery; however, this can be controlled with medication. Some degree of swelling, numbness, and bruising can also be expected for a few days after the procedure. A small drain and compression garment will likely be provided to you in order to reduce swelling and stabilize the neck. Patients can typically resume normal daily activities after one to two weeks.
