What is a neck lift?

A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that addresses neck aging. It resolves sagging skin contributing to a “turkey neck” or the build-up of fat resulting in a double chin. You may choose to have a neck lift to address these issues and achieve a sculpted, more contoured neck. Those looking for a more comprehensive rejuvenation experience may want to combine their Miami neck lift with a facelift, eyelid surgery, or other cosmetic procedure.

What causes sagging in the neck?

Sagging in the neck and around the jawline is a primary concern for men and women seeking to reverse – or at least halt – the aging process. As the body matures, it slowly loses its abundant supply of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, compounds that give youthful complexions their radiance, resilience and supple quality. As these substances dwindle, the skin loses its structural integrity and begins to droop and wilt. Exposure to the sun’s harmful rays, pollution, second-hand smoke and other environmental toxins can further erode the skin’s vibrance, making you look older than you are.

While there’s no way to completely stop the aging process, there are things you can do to mitigate its effects, including the following:

  • Eat a healthy diet, limiting processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol
  • Keep well-hydrated, drinking at least eight 8-oz glasses of water a day
  • Use medical-grade skincare products to nourish and protect the skin
  • Get adequate exercise
  • Stay stress-free
  • Don’t smoke
  • Use sunscreen every day
  • Sleep on your back

Restore an elegant, youthful neck and jawline with a custom surgery.

If you have any of the following aesthetic issues, a neck lift may be the right way to restore your look:

  • Sagging neck skin
  • A double chin
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Excess skin, fat, and tissue extending from jaw and chin onto the neck
  • Excess fat on the neck

Am I a candidate for a neck lift?

You’re a suitable candidate for a neck lift if you’re concerned about the signs of aging on your lower face and neck regions. Patients considering neck lifts generally have deep neckbands, sagging skin under the chin, jowl lines, and the dreaded “turkey wattle” hanging from the chin.

Generally speaking, you’re a suitable candidate for a neck lift if you:

  • Have moderate to severe signs of aging on your neck
  • Are in generally good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the procedure
  • Don’t smoke or are willing to cease smoking several weeks before the procedure
  • Don’t have underlying illnesses or bleeding disorders that contraindicate the procedure

What is the cost of a neck lift?

You are unique, and your surgery will be customized to treat the issues you want to resolve. The cost of a neck lift can vary, based upon what will be required to restore a firm, sculpted elegance to your neck.

As a neck lift is an elective procedure, it is not covered by health insurance. We want you to be able to get the treatment you want, when you want it, and accept most major credit cards. We also offer easy financing through CareCredit. At Paul N. Afrooz, MD, our top priority is providing you with exceptional care and beautiful results, and we believe the results we achieve are well worth the investment. Our friendly administrative staff is happy to help you with any financing questions.

Neck Lift FAQ

How long does it take to recover from a neck lift?

While you can resume most of your normal activities and work after a week, the complete recovery process should take two to four weeks. You must follow the surgeon’s complete aftercare guidelines to speed up the recovery.

Will I be back to normal?

Nunc vitae lacus in mauris porttitor rhoncus lacinia vitae odio. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent.

Will I have visible scars on my neck?

The neck lift procedure involves several small incisions, but Dr. Afrooz takes several steps to reduce their visibility and prominence. The incisions are usually back along the hairline around the sideburns and continue behind your head, ending near the lower hairline. As such, the incision marks are carefully concealed from plain view. Over time, the scars will fade into a dull pink, becoming virtually invisible.

Can a neck lift remove the turkey wattle?

Yes. Neck lifts often address the sagging skin tissues under the chin, also known as a “turkey wattle.” Your surgeon will examine your skin quality and condition to determine how much skin can be removed.

How long will the neck lift results last?

Neck lift results are permanent and usually last for 10 to 15 years, but the surgery doesn’t halt the natural process of aging.
