Neck Lift

Age related wrinkling and creasing can be corrected with a neck lift to provide a slimmer and smoother profile


Neck lift surgery is performed to correct signs of ageing on the neck and jawline. As we age the skin and muscle on our necks tends to lose elasticity and begins to sag. A neck lift improves the sagging of the neck skin and removes excess fatty deposits in the neck and under the chin. For complete facial rejuvenation, neck lift and face lift surgery can be done together, however both are often done as stand alone procedures as well. Some patients may feel they are not ready for a face lift because they are still pleased with the upper appearance of their face, but they may notice more signs of ageing on their neck. In this case where the neck doesn’t match the upper face, a neck lift is a great solution.

Most often the procedure usually takes 1-2 hours in an in-office procedure room or an outpatient surgery center depending on the patient’s preference. Dr. Amadi will begin by making an incision right below your chin. He will then lift and tighten the muscles of the neck and remove excess skin and fat. In addition to pain medication, numbing medication can be used in the neck to make sure you feel more comfortable when you wake up from surgery.

When should I expect to see results?

You should expect to see results as early as 2 weeks after surgery. However the scars will continue to improve until about 1 year after surgery.
