Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery is a procedure that is performed to correct loose or sagging skin due to age or hereditary factors. The necklift can be accomplished by a series of procedures:

Cervicoplasty - the procedure to remove excess skin
Platysmaplasty - the procedure to alter or remove the neck muscles
Neck liposuction - rejuvenates the neck with liposuction

The neck lift and face lift (rhytidectomy) are usually performed together, although they may be performed separately in some cases.

In neck lift surgery, an incision is made behind the ears or under the chin. During platysmaplasty the surgeon will reposition and/or remove a portion of the neck muscle. During cervicoplasty the surgeon will tighten the loose muscle layer under the skin and trim the excess skin. If the neck lift involves liposuction then the surgeon will remove excess fat. The sutures can be removed in about a week. The surgery is usually done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Swelling and bruising is expected to be gone in about one week and complete healing is expected to take a few weeks. Most patients can expect to return to work in 10 to 14 days and should experience minimal discomfort.
