Neck lift

When you look in the mirror are you happy with the appearance of your face … but unhappy with how your neck and jaw line looks?

Do you feel that your neck makes you look older than you are? Does it look like you have more than one chin? Do you have loose neck skin … what people half-jokingly refer to as “turkey neck”? Do you have droopy jowels?

The loss of youthful contours in the neck area can be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions, and stress. But you can erase the visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck with a neck lift (also called a lower rhytidectomy). A neck lift is a surgical procedure that improves …

  • Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls
  • A turkey wattle that makes you look much older than your age
  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Muscle banding in the neck, which created abnormal contours

A neck lift is perfect for addressing the above issues. Best of all, it is the perfect option for you if you are not prepared to have a full facelift done. Or when the neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance.

Many of our neck lift patients are happy with how their face appears … but they want to do away with the excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a “turkey wattle”, a double chin, and/or jowl lines which make them look older. A neck lift can erase these signs of aging and give you an overall more youthful appearance.

A neck lift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results. A neck lift can also be done to complement a facelift procedure. Both procedures involve surgery and should be considered seriously.

To learn how — or if — a neck lift can help correct the issues you are unhappy with, schedule a consultation with Dr. Kevitch, Dr. Chung or Dr. Jan. They will ask you about your expectations and desired outcomes. They will also talk about your health and your lifestyle, and then help determine the right course for you.
