Neck Lift

Return your face’s youthful appearance

The neck is one of the first places where we show our age. Fatty jowls, a “turkey wattle”, vertical banding, and horizontal creases all work together to make us look older than we feel. A Neck Lift enhances the appearance of the neck by tightening the skin and underlying muscles and improving the contour of the jawline. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with Liposuction, Face Lift or Cheek Lift but may also be done as a stand-alone procedure.


Dr. Weiss begins your initial consultation by reviewing before-and-after photos of other Neck Lift patients. Together, he will help you select the level of correction for you to achieve your desired look. All applicable costs will also be reviewed during this confidential appointment.


As a stand-alone procedure, your Neck Lift can be done with Liposuction alone, if only fat is being removed and your skin quality is good. When there are more significant signs of aging, such as a “turkey wattle”, jowling, excess fat, sagging skin, and a prominent platysma muscle, a more extensive procedure is required that will address all of those problem areas.

There are various incision approaches, depending on the extent of the surgery and the structures being altered. If a Corset Platysmaplasty is planned (in which the platysma muscles are tightly sewn together to create a smooth neck contour) a small incision is made under your chin (submental incision) along with a limited Facelift-type incision behind each ear. For younger patients who request a Neck Lift with minimal change to the face, the neck correction can sometimes be accomplished with only the submental incision or with only the incision behind each ear.


Immediately after surgery, your neck will be bruised, and it will feel tight and numb. The bruising will resolve over the next four-to-five days but the feelings of tightness and numbness may remain for several months, if not longer.

Recovery takes anywhere from two-to-four weeks in most people, though many patients go back to work in two weeks. Scars are usually not noticeable after enough time has passed for them to mature. Bear in mind that the aging process continues after surgery and that some relaxation of tissues will occur over the first few weeks.
