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. 

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for neck lift surgery:

  • Have loose skin in the area caused by weight loss, aging, or genetics
  • Have lines and wrinkles in the neck area
  • Are any age from 20 – 70+
  • Desire a sleeker and slimmer profile
  • Desire a long-term solution
  • Desire a natural look

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. 

Anticipated Results

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.
