A neck lift is a specialized procedure that lifts and smooths the skin on the neck. Skin sagging and folding in this area is usually caused by fatty deposits as well as thinning skin tissue. A neck lift is similar to a facelift, meaning that skin is repositioned and tightened. We invite interested individuals to contact us to schedule a consultation, during which we will outline the entire procedure. Properly performed, a neck lift can help you look years younger, and it can help your confidence and self-esteem.
Candidates for a Neck Lift
This procedure corrects skin folds and sagging around the chin and on the neck area just below the jaw. Ideal candidates will be experiencing the appearance of jowls due to fat buildup and moderate sagging of the upper neck skin. Small wrinkles usually appear on the upper neck as adults enter into their mature years, which can also be corrected with a neck lift.
What to Expect
While a facelift tightens the loose, excess skin and muscle in the entire face, a neck lift focuses on the chin and jawline. By removing excess fat and skin, tightening the remaining skin, and providing muscle banding in the neck, this procedure can significantly improve one’s appearance for years to come.
Information for Patients
Just as no two patients are the same, each neck lift procedure is tailored to meet the individual’s needs. During your consultation, Dr. Stephens will discuss your goals and go over your questions and concerns with you to develop the procedure best suited to your needs.
Most of our patients report satisfactory results that last for many years. Because the skin is smoothed by lifting upward, small set wrinkles or dynamic wrinkles may not reappear for many years.
