What is a Neck Lift?

Having a neckline that wiggles or has bumps and bulges makes you look unfit and older. Neck lift surgery addresses signs of aging on the neck and area under the chin, such as:

  • Loose sagging skin
  • Pockets of fat
  • Double and triple chins
  • Heavy jowls
  • Muscle banding
  • Uneven texture

What Are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?

  • Targets signs of aging in the neck and chin area
  • Addresses obvious signs of aging
  • May be combined with a mini facelift or full facelift for dramatic anti-aging benefits

Who is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?

The best candidates for neck lift surgery are men and women who have an aged appearance to their neck and chin area. Dr. Ayala may recommend a neck lift if you are not a good candidate for Kybella® treatments due to the poor

elasticity of the skin.

How is the Vectra H1 Imaging System Used for Facial Plastic Surgery?

The Vectra H1 imaging system allows you to see before and after 3D images of your neck lift. The system also helps Dr. Ayala evaluate your skin to determine medical spa treatments that may help you look younger.

What is the Procedure for a Neck Lift?

The incision for a neck lift is made in the natural crease behind each ear. An additional incision may be made under your skin. Dr. Ayala may use sutures to tighten the neck muscles if you have banding. He pulls the skin tight over the neck and removes any excess before closing the incisions.

What is Recovery Like After a Neck Lift?

Expect to rest at home for at least two weeks after your neck lift. As the incisions start to heal, your neck may feel tight, and you will have some bruising and swelling. Recovery can take several months, and Dr. Ayala schedules follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. Other potential complications that could arise post-surgery include: 

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Reoperation
