Who Is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Anyone who notices signs of the aging process in and around their neck may be a good candidate for a neck lift. Some of the most common reasons to consider getting a neck lift procedure include:*
- Distended neck bands, or platysmal bands
- Sagging jowls and neck skin
- Loss of jawline definition caused by excess skin or fat
- A double chin

Your Neck Lift Procedure
You should plan to arrive at the surgical facility 1 hour prior to your procedure start time and you will need to stay in a recovery room for 1 hour after your procedure has finished. A friend or family member will need to drive you home after your surgery, and an adult should plan to stay with you for at least 24 hours after your neck lift.
Depending on your individual needs, your surgeon may recommend additional procedures. Many patients combine their neck lift with a facelift for a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation. A neck lift can also be combined with other facial procedures, such as eyelid surgery or a brow lift.
Neck Lift Recovery
Some swelling and bruising is to be expected following any surgical procedure, but these should subside over the first couple of weeks.* Your final results can take 3 to 5 months to fully develop, although everyone’s experience is different.*
It’s important to discuss any possible risks and complications of a neck lift with your surgeon before your procedure. If you notice a sudden increase in swelling or sharp pain, notify our office immediately.
