Neck Lift

If you’re an otherwise youthful, energetic person but your sagging neck skin is sending the wrong signals, you may want to consult with one of our experienced plastic surgeons about a neck lift like our patients from the Denver metro area, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and beyond have done. After all, you can keep up with the latest fashion trends, watch your figure, and even color your hair to mask the gray; but a neck that could be mistaken for a “turkey wattle” is a sure sign of aging that’s pretty hard to remedy without expert help.

What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, also called a cervical tuck, is a procedure designed to tighten the neck, reduce any fatty bulges, remove the jowls, and redefine the jawline. Scars are hidden in much the same way as a facelift. The deeper tissues of the neck including the muscles are tightened to restore the youthful angle between your chin and neck. Further sculpting of the neck is accomplished by removing any excess fat that has developed below the chin. Finally, excess skin is excised to define the jaw and leave you with a smooth and taught neck contour.

Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?

Whether you’re serious about improving the look of your neck or just considering your options, our plastic surgeons want you to know that a neck lift is typically a straightforward procedure that can accomplish a dramatic change. It involves relatively short surgical time, minimal discomfort, few risks, and a fast and smooth recovery period.

By removing excess skin and fat and tightening muscles of the neck and lower face, a neck lift restores a smooth, firm neck contour and defined jawline. The small, fine scars from a neck lift are inconspicuous. Incisions are made between the face and ears and at the hairline where they won’t show and they’re carefully closed using hair-sized sutures.

Can I Combine My Neck Lift With Other Procedures?

Our surgeons offer a variety of facial plastic surgery procedures and provide greater rejuvenation by combining a neck lift with other related procedures such as:

Even if you have a combination of facial procedures, you should experience just a few days of mild discomfort post-operatively. Your surgeon will remove your bandages a day or 2 after surgery. Bruising and swelling will peak after a few days, then subside within 1 to 2 weeks. You’ll be headed back to work, out to dinner, or onto the tennis court sooner than you think.
