About Neck Lifts
A person’s skin on the hands and neck are the first things that give away their age. Loose or sagging neck skin, jowls, fullness under the chin, and the progressive development of neck bands can make both male and female patients look older than they actually are. Hanging skin below the chin can also cause an unflattering "turkey-neck" appearance. Neck bands (or plastysmal bands) are an age-related condition that appears when the platysma muscles become cord-like. This causes the appearance of stripes or "banding" across the front of the neck. Neck bands are the result of a combination of sagging neck skin with an increased prominence and separation of these platysma muscles. A neck lift tightens sagging neck muscles and skin to accentuate the jaw line for a slimmer profile. It also corrects jowls and reduces the "turkey-neck" appearance. Liposuction is also used and is often part of a neck lift procedure to enhance results. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile can perform neck lift surgery as a single procedure or can combine it with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift. Call Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, today to learn more about how a neck lift can help you achieve the look you desire.

"From the moment I booked an appointment to my first day in the office, I have never felt so comfortable in a doctors office before. My whole experience has been amazing and the staff has been very accommodating for a life changing procedure, at least to me it was life changing in a positive way. I really had my decision narrowed down to two places and I truly believe the staff behind a good surgeon is extremely important and that is what sold me. I am 4 Weeks post op of a breast augmentation and I'm still healing but I'm finally loving my results now. With daily massage several times a day they are finally falling down into place and I can finally go bra shopping for normal bras! At the end of the day it's your body, and you're the one that has to live with it daily, so ask all the questions you need and want to know about any procedure and you'll be in good hands."- M.S. / Yelp / Jan 19, 2018

"Dr. Stile and his staff are the gold standard for what experiences like this are suppose to be. First off this office is absolutely gorgeous, envision what the inside of a palace would look like and that is what this office is! While I was waiting for my consultation one of the office staff came over with a rolling tea cart. Yes, a tea cart. A gorgeous sterling silver set with a variety of teas to choose from compliments of Dr. Stile. On the televisions there's a video reel of a variety of things from Dr. Stile providing different procedures, to consultations, to even advice. I was so impressed! I waited about an hour to be seen and was escorted back with yesenia (I think that was her name). She was so sweet, kind, and willing to listen to my concerns. Soon Dr. Stile came in and I showed him the birthmark I had been trying to remove for what seemed like my whole life. He listened and was empathetic to my situation, really understanding that this is something that has been a battle for me for so long. He asked about the laser procedures I had tried in the past with failed results. He offered me something different to try and an actual game plan for how we could go about treating it. We also discussed other procedures that I was interested in. Dr.Stile is kind and he really gives good advice as to what he would do and what to expect/how to address any issues. I really appreciated him being direct yet warm and welcoming to any questions or concerns I had. Lisa helped me with the cost of what procedures would cost and she was so awesome! She went over everything and wasn't super pushy like other places I've been to, she genuinely cared about answering my questions. This is absolutely the best experience I've ever had at a plastic surgeons office. I did so much research previously when I had a scar revision done with another surgeon in town and I so regret not coming here instead because the other surgeon left a mess. Don't make the same mistake as me in trusting anyone else instead come and see Dr. Stile, I promise you will be happy you did! Also huge plus, he doesn't charge an initial consultation fee! That's amazing considering most other places charge $50 just to see you! I am updating my review based on the experience I had today. My last experience was frustrating however I acknowledge that it was due to a single person giving me misinformation and not an accurate reflection of this entire facility."- S.N. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017
"32 Year Old with 2 C-Section and a Hysterectomy - Dr. Stile was great! he really put my fiance at ease and made him feel like he really cared. Hopefully tomorrow at my early morning appointment, I can give you a better assessment because I was pretty out of it today."- M. / RealSelf / Dec 15, 2017

What to Expect
Neck lift surgery is outpatient and performed at an accredited surgical facility. The patient will be under general anesthesia during the procedure. The plastic surgeon will start off by making an incision under the chin or in front of or behind the patient’s ears. When there’s abundant fat in the region, liposuction will be the first step of the surgery to remove this excess fat. The underlying neck muscles will then be pulled tight. Then, the skin will be trimmed and the remaining skin will be re-draped for a tighter, smoother appearance. Stitches, or sutures, are placed deep in the neck wall. The surgeon may also place a drain in the surgical site to control bleeding. The entire surgery typically lasts 2 hours.
Following a neck lift surgery, a patient commonly experiences some amount of bruising and swelling in the neck area. It’s also common for patients to have a sensation of tightness and pulling, which is a result of the neck adjusting into the new position. Typically, patients are able to return to their normal routine, such as work, in around 7 – 10 days. After a few months, a patient should be able to see the effects of the surgery with a tighter, smoother, more contoured neck. There should be very minimal scarring since the incisions were placed in discreet areas.
