What Is Neck Lift?

Neck lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure used for removing excessive fat and skin from the neck area. The procedure effectively addresses age-related creasing and wrinkling around the neck area as well as restoring a more youthful neck contour. Wrinkles on the neck are among a few factors which make an individual look older than their actual age. As years go by, skin’s elastic fibres as well as other collagen fibres start degenerating which results in sagging skin. With sagging of the neckline, the jawline gets uneven and any excessive skin moves downwards accumulating around the neck area. With this excessive skin accumulation, the neck starts looking wrinkled and heavy. In such cases, neck lift is needed for improving double chin and jaw sagging while recreating a neckline that looks younger.

Who Needs Neck Lift?

Neck lift surgery is recommended for individuals who have:
  • Droopy double chin.
  • Excessive skin that is easily identifiable by pinching.
  • Deep vertical and horizontal wrinkles on their neck. 

Neck Lift Surgery Method

Neck Lift (Submental Lipectomy): During the procedure, the surgeon creates a minor incision behind the ears of the patient. Depending on the requirements, a third minor incision may also be made below the chin. The patient’s neck muscles and/or the underlying tissues are tightened through the incisions. The surgeon will also remove any excessive skin for restoring a firmer, smoother, and youthful look of the neck.    Besides tightening the skin, the neck lift surgery can also help remove any localized fat deposits below the chin while correcting muscle laxity issues. The procedure is usually carried out in combination with a facelift surgery to achieve better results.
Generally, sutures are removed after 7-14 days of the procedure. It takes patients around 2 weeks for initial recovery and it will take a few months for the final results to settle. It is often recommended that the patients should avoid any vigorous activity for several weeks after the procedure.

Is It a Good Idea To Combine Neck lift Procedures With Lasers Or Injectables?

The purpose of Neck lift surgery is to tighten the skin while preventing any sagging or age-related changes. Lasers and injectables, on the other hand, help improve texture, volume, and the skin quality. When combined with a neck lift, lasers and injectables can help produce more rejuvenated skin and even better results can be expected. That’s the reason why many surgeons prefer to use these treatments in combination to achieve better surgical results.
