Neck Lift

A neck lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the neck and jawline by eliminating sagging skin and excess fat for a more youthful and defined appearance. This procedure can help tighten loose skin on your neck area and provide a more sculpted tone.
The procedure involves making incisions around the earlobes and under the chin, allowing our expert plastic surgeon to access and tighten the underlying muscles, remove excess skin, and reconstruct the neck’s natural contours.
A neck lift surgery is an excellent option for patients who are looking to achieve a more youthful and refreshed neck appearance, which can have a significant impact on their overall look and self-confidence.
Our team of highly experienced and board-certified doctors at our clinic strive to provide top-quality care and personalized treatment plans for each patient to achieve their desired cosmetic goals. Whether you need a neck lift that’s combined with another surgical procedure or a standalone treatment, we are here to guide you along the way and help you achieve the results you envision.

You may want to consider a neck lift if you have any of the following: loose
and sagging neck skin, hyper-dynamic muscles in the neck creating bands
and abnormal contours, or skin and tissue sagging at the level of the jaw that
did not improve with minimally invasive procedures such as lasers, radio-
frequency treatments and injections.


1. What are the benefits of this surgery?

Neck Lift surgery lifts and repositions the muscles and the deep sagging tissues of the neck, redrapes and tightens the skin without tension, better defines the jawline, gives the neckline and profile a more youthful look and boosts self-confidence.

2. What type of anesthesia will I have?

Neck Lift surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation depending on the patient’s preference.

3. What type of incisions will I have?

A Neck Lift incision runs within the natural contours behind the ears and ends in the lower scalp. A second incision under the chin may be necessary to further improve an aging neck. When a neck lift is executed properly without tension on the skin these incisions fade away with time and become barely visible. At The Skin Clinic, we also use laser skin resurfacing to improve the scar outcome.

4. What are the Necklift stigmas that should be avoided?

Pulling the skin during a Neck Lift surgery without treating the underlying structures or pulling the muscle in the wrong direction can lead to one of the following deformities: Pexy ears (the downward pulling of the ear) or wide scars. At The Skin Clinic, we treat the deep layers of the face and we work carefully to guarantee a natural result without stigmas.

5. What to expect after the surgery?

It is normal to have swelling and some bruising for a few days after neck lift surgery, at The Skin Clinic we are proud to have developed techniques that reduce them tremendously. The recovery time is typically around 2 weeks during which you should wear a neck bandage, you should also rest and avoid straining for the first 2 weeks.

6. What are the possible complications and risks of Neck Lift?

Complications sometimes occur, but with proper patient preparation, careful
execution and follow up we reduce their occurrence and if they ever occur we
are able to manage them.
