Neck lift surgery tightens the skin and vertical bands on the neck as well as skin that sags along the jawline. A neck lift works to remove excess fat, which helps to tighten the underlying neck muscles. A neck lift can also eliminate any excess skin which helps to improve the contour and youthful appearance of the neck and jawline. A successful neck lift can help to create a smoother, more youthful profile and can take years off of your appearance.

How do I know when I'm ready for a Neck Lift?

In order to experience the benefits of a neck lift, you may want to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you unhappy with your jowls or the appearance of a "turkey neck?"
  • Have you been unable to obtain satisfying results from the nonsurgical treatments you have used to date?
  • Are you in good overall health?

If you answered yes to these questions, it might be time to consider this cosmetic surgery procedure to reduce the visible signs of aging that are bothering you.

During a neck lift procedure, small incisions are made under the chin and then behind the ears. The platysma muscle is tightened (platysmaplasty), excess fat gets removed, and the facial tissues are repositioned before excess skin is carefully trimmed away. The new contoured neck is secured with sutures, and the incisions are closed.


Patients with good skin quality and whose signs of aging are primarily in the neck may be candidates for neck liposuction alone. In a liposuction neck lift, small, inconspicuously placed incisions are used to suction out fat through a cannula (thin, hollow tube).


  • Sagging, loose neck skin
  • Poor jawline definition
  • Jowls and “turkey neck”


  • Long-lasting results

Additional Benefits of a Neck Lift

Excess Fat Deposit Removal

Displaces any fat in the neck and along the jawline. During the procedure, fat cells in the underside of the chin get removed in order to produce a slender, more defined lower face and neck.

“Turkey Neck” Elimination

Loose, sagging skin is tightened to eliminate the appearance of a “turkey neck” to reveal smooth, wrinkle-free neck contours.

Jawline Definition

A sagging jawline or a jaw that blends in with the neck can be fixed. This new definition can help to provide a chiseled jawline that distinctly separates the lower face from your neck. This is achieved by removing loose skin as well as removing or repositioning fatty tissue in the jawline area.

Correct Muscle Banding in the Neck

Vertical bands on the neck are caused by a stretched platysma muscle. They can be easily corrected by tightening the muscle in order to achieve a more natural, youthful result.
