What are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?

What is a Neck Lift?

Many people would like a slimmer, more contoured neck and jawline. However, liposuction alone cannot remove the loose, sagging skin in the area. Creams and other applied treatments will not give you the dramatic, long-lasting tightening you can see with a neck lift.

This surgery, called lower rhytidectomy, works by removing excess skin and tightening the neck muscles to give the face and neck a more defined and shapely appearance. It may be combined with liposuction to remove fat and tighten loose skin at the same time.

How Does a Neck Lift Work?

Your surgeon will work while you are asleep or under IV sedation. During the procedure, they will make several small incisions, some behind your ears and one under the chin. This gives the surgeon access to the skin and facial muscles, which they will then tighten and lift.

Lifting the lower area of the face often provides great improvements in a person’s overall appearance and self-confidence. Because the neck lift adjusts not only sagging skin but the underlying muscles, it can provide an immediate improvement that will last for many years.

What Is Recovery From a Neck Lift Like?

Full recovery will take a few weeks. After surgery, you may have a compression garment on the area to support the surgical site and control swelling. You will also have some stitches which will be removed in 5-10 days.

After the neck lift, you may have some bruising, which can take a few weeks to fade completely. You may experience soreness, and your surgeon will manage your pain with appropriate options. You will only need over-the-counter pain medication for most of your recovery.

Am I a Good Candidate?

If you have sagging skin around your neck and jaw that cannot be addressed by liposuction, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift. You should be in good overall health and should mention any history of bleeding or clotting problems to your surgeon.

What Benefits Can I Expect From a Neck Lift?

Benefits from a neck lift range from cosmetic to emotional, and include:

  • Sculpted neck, chin, and jaw area
  • More youthful appearance immediately
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Decrease in self-consciousness about the neck area
  • Feeling of freedom from the burden of sagging skin
