A Truly Transformative Procedure

A neck lift is an excellent option for individuals who have sagging skin due to the aging process or significant weight loss. It can also address a double chin and excess soft tissue.

A neck lift can be a truly transformative procedure, restoring definition and attractiveness to the jawline and neck and enhancing overall facial appearance.

What a Neck Lift Can Do

  • Restore definition to the neck, chin, and jawline
  • Tighten sagging neck skin
  • Reduce wrinkles of the neck 
  • Decrease a double chin
  • Boost self-esteem and confidence 

Neck Lift Surgery Details

The neck lift procedure removes sagging skin of the neck and excess fat under the chin, while overall tightening and toning the neck. It may be also be performed to smooth out the bands that can form in the front of the neck. While a neck lift is frequently performed in conjunction with a facelift, it doesn’t have to be. It can be done as a stand-alone procedure, or it can be combined with other procedures such as an eyelid lift, a brow lift, fat transfer, etc. 

Dr. Frankel performs a neck lift with the patient under either deep twilight anesthesia or local anesthesia with oral sedation. He will create incisions beneath the chin and/or behind the ears. The platysma muscle will be tightened and sewn together, excess skin and fat will be removed, tissue and skin will be adjusted and secured, and then the incisions will be closed. Surgical dressings will then be placed. The surgery takes about two hours, and most patients go home the same day.

Recovery and Results

A neck lift requires about 1-2 weeks of recovery, with residual swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort that gradually improves after the first 3-4 days. After your neck lift, the area will need to be supported by a light compression garment for about one week. 

Although early results will be visible immediately after a neck lift, final results will be seen at about six months. The scars will be nearly imperceptible in one year. With good post-procedure care and a strong skincare regimen, neck lift results can last up to 10 years or more. Dr. Frankel is known to offer one of the best neck lifts in Cleveland and will help ensure the best results.
