The neck skin is very thin, and many people will have noticeable changes here at a young age. While fat can be removed in a variety of ways, loose skin will usually need to be removed with a surgical neck lift.
The surgery is usually done with local sedation anesthesia in the office. Bruising and swelling will last for at least one week.

Many people will first notice aging changes in the neck. This skin is very thin, so will appear wrinkled and loose at a younger age. The platysma muscle will also start to separate and become apparent in patients with thinner necks, and these will appear as the bands in the neck.
There are some non-surgical approaches to help improve an aging neck. Radio frequency, ultrasound and laser may help to tighten the skin. However they may accentuate the banding. Botox injections into the bands will soften their appearance for about 3-4 months.
A surgical neck lift can help to improve a sagging neck. In this surgery, an incision is made just in front of the earlobe, then goes up behind the ear and along the posterior hairline. Another incision is often made just below the chin. This provides access into the central neck to remove fat and tighten the platysmal bands.
Liposuction can also be done in the neck and jowl area. The surgery is usually done with local sedation anesthesia in the office. Bruising and swelling will last for at least one week.
While some patients are good candidates for a neck lift, many patients requesting just a neck lift would benefit more from a full face lift. That decision can be determined during the consultation.

What is a Necklift Procedure?
A necklift is a facial plastic surgery procedure that restores a smooth, youthful look to the lower eyelids and cheeks, giving you a rejuvenated look.
Getting tired of the worn-out look your sagging facial skin is giving you? Look and feel years younger with a mid facelift. Typical recovery time is about one week, possibly shorter.
