Restore Your Tight, Youthful Jawline with Neck Lift Surgery

Gravity and age all take a toll on the skin around the neck. That’s why when you reach your early 40s, the skin between your neck, which was once a taut right angle, may slowly start dropping, if it hasn’t already.

The good news is that neck lift surgery removes excess fat and skin around your jaw line. This creates a more youthful-looking and defined neck. Neck lift surgery is one of the most common types of cosmetic surgeries used by celebrities to appear youthful. But it is not just for celebrities. Discover how Dr. Rotatori can take years off your appearance with this safe, popular and highly effective procedure.

Mirror-loving Outcomes of Neck Lift Surgery from Dr. Rotatori

A neck lift consists of the removal of localized deposits of fat in the anterior part of the neck and under the chin, and the repair of muscle laxity under the chin.

This is done with the removal of sagging skin folds in the front part of the neck and jawline to achieve:

  • A More Defined Chin
  • Less Sagging Skin
  • Reduction in Neck Fat

Note that a neck lift has traditionally been part of a full face-lift surgery. This is because your neck muscles are connected to your face muscles, and if you choose a neck lift vs. a face-lift and tighten one without the other, you will do your face a disservice.

Neck lift surgery involves wrapping sagging muscles crosswise to the jaw, restoring that youthful right angle under the chin. Compared with face-lift surgery, neck lift sutures are smaller, there is less pulling and recovery time is much shorter.

In most cases, you will get better results if you get a face-lift in conjunction with a neck lift. During your personal consultation with Dr. Rotatori, he will help you determine the right procedure for you.

What to Expect During Neck Lift Surgery

We perform your neck lift procedure in our office using local anesthesia and oral medications, or on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Here is what to expect during neck lift surgery:

  • The neck lift procedure requires an incision under the chin and generally one around the base of the ears.
  • Fat is suctioned or directly excised, muscles are tightened and a small amount of skin may be removed during neck lift surgery.
  • As a very personalized treatment, your exact neck lift procedure depends on individual findings.

Understanding the Neck Lift Surgery Recovery Process

After neck lift surgery, you will go home with your chin and neck wrapped in dressings or in an elastic neck sling. You’ll notice swelling and bruising disappear over an approximately two-week period. The final result of neck lift surgery will be evident in one to three months.
