About Neck Lift Surgery

Are you sick of wearing turtlenecks and scarves the whole year to cover the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Plastic surgeons Drs. Peter Chang and Ankur Mehta provide neck lift surgery at Timeless Plastic Surgery in Sugar Land, TX to improve the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery reshapes and tightens the area on the underside of your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a "turkey neck" or "double chin." By surgically excising the loose skin and fat while using a tightening technique to result in a smoother, natural neckline, neck lift surgery at Timeless Plastic Surgery can provide dramatic improvements to your profile. Before you contact us to schedule your initial consultation, read more about surgical neck lifts and the wonderful results it can give you.

Ideal Candidates

Individuals desiring neck lift treatment generally deal with visibly sagging and hanging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by ranging factors including aging and significant weight loss. Whatever the reason may be, loose neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but feel embarrassed by lines, wrinkles, and hanging skin along the neck, a neck lift cosmetic surgery treatment may be a recommended answer.

Surgical Technique

For neck lift surgery, IV sedation is used. The incision point is placed just in front or behind your ears, while another one might also be created beneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, fat removal with liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is conducted until the desired contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be noticeable since they were placed beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. Also, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser treatments, to produce a soft and smooth appearance.

What to Expect

After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate within a week or two. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. While recovering, fitted tops should be avoided. You should notice visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In addition, it has been noted that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most stunning enhancements to an individual's profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a neck lift cost?
Costs for your neck surgery will be reviewed in your consultation. As soon as we have developed your surgical plan, we will be able to estimate prices for the anesthesia, facility, and miscellaneous fees. To make your neck surgery easy to afford, Timeless Plastic Surgery takes several payments methods, plus we can tell you more about how to get low-interest financing.

What about nonsurgical options?
Neck lift surgery is the best option to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it droops or hangs. Although there are several nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that may give you mild improvements, neck lift surgery offers the most significant improvements to redefine and smooth your neckline. A popular, new minimally invasive treatment called Kybella targets fat in the submental area, to address the appearance of a double chin; however, it doesn't improve excess skin.

Will I have visible scars?
Your neck lift will start with one incision beneath the chin, as well as two more close to the ears. These are made so the scars are difficult for others to see. Dr. Chang and Dr. Mehta try very hard during neck lift surgery to avoid visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will encourage your incisions to heal flat and thin.

Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, you can bring up that you are thinking about another surgery, like a facelift or blepharoplasty, along with a neck lift. It's normal for two or more face surgeries to be done together to get your best results. If you are concerned about an undefined jawline or weak chin, tell us during your consult so we can develop a plan that meets all your goals.

Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Based on your concerns and goals, you might want to get a neck lift with liposuction. A lift plus lipo may be best if you are concerned about both loose skin and fat pockets in your neck. We can help you choose whether a lift, lipo, or a combination of both should be included in your surgical plan.
