As you age, your skin loses much of its natural elasticity, leading to unwanted symptoms such as sagging, drooping, wrinkles, and fine lines. These signs of age can be especially pronounced around the neck, but a neck lift effectively rejuvenates your appearance.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Neck lifts can be performed either on their own or in conjunction with a facelift, providing long-lasting and natural-looking results. Some of the primary reasons to seek a neck lift include:
- Smoother skin along the neck.
- Reduction of excess skin around the neck and under the chin.
- Less jowling and greater definition for the jawline.
- A younger-looking appearance with minimal scarring and little downtime.

What is Neck Lift Surgery Like?
Neck lift surgery often involves liposuction to remove fat deposits, paired with small incisions behind the ears and under the chin. These incisions allow for the tightening of the skin, elimination of wrinkles, and overall restoration of a youthful appearance.
This procedure can be performed independently to improve the neck’s look or with a facelift for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Whether you opt for a standalone procedure or pair it with a facelift, neck lift surgery can significantly enhance your aesthetic appeal by refining the contours of your neck and jawline.
Recovery and Aftercare
Following your neck lift, you will be discharged to head home for rest and recovery. Your doctor will provide bandages to minimize swelling and provide support. Most patients feel ready to resume their normal school and work activities after a week, though we recommend abstaining from vigorous exercise for four to six weeks. While some tenderness can be expected following your neck lift, medications are available to promote your comfort.
It’s important to note that the final results may take time to be visible. It often takes several weeks to months for swelling to reduce and for your neck to heal completely.
Everyone’s recovery process varies, but your neck should typically look and feel almost completely healed by the fourth week post-surgery. Once the swelling subsides, you should notice visible improvements and a revitalized appearance of your lower face, jawline, and neck.
