What is Neck Lift?

A Neck Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure in Scottsdale, AZ that aims to improve the appearance of the neck and jawline by removing excess skin and fat, tightening the underlying muscles, and repositioning the skin. The procedure is often sought by those bothered by sagging skin, excess flaps, or loose muscle bands in the neck area, making them look older or heavier than they actually are. A Neck Lift from Plastic Surgery Scottsdale can help patients achieve a more defined and harmonious look by rejuvenating the neck’s contours and enhancing the overall facial balance.

What are the Benefits of Neck Lift?

This procedure can be very exciting for a patient, as it can make a big difference in their overall appearance. Below, we’ve included some of the benefits that we’ve seen firsthand in our Arizona patients:

  • The procedure will create a slimmer neck and lower face
  • The operation will make you look more youthful and refined
  • Eliminate double chins
  • Obtain a narrow and tighter chin region
  • The procedure will give you a more defined jawline

What can a Neck Lift Treat?

Through the procedure, we can tighten the loose skin and remove excess fat tissue to give you a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance. A Neck Lift procedure can often be done in conjunction with a Facelift. Our Neck Lifts performed by Dr. Golger at Plastic Surgery Scottsdale will help treat:

  • Excess fat and loose skin on the neck
  • Heavy jowls
  • Double chins
  • Platysmal bands ( two strips of muscle that run vertically down both sides of your neck)
  • Sagginess and deep wrinkles on the lower face

Who Are The
Best Candidates
For Neck Lift?

To better understand if you’re a good candidate for our Neck Lift in Scottsdale, we’ve provided criteria that most of our patients can meet or are experiencing:

  • Candidates of this procedure should be in good overall health
  • Candidates should not smoke cigarettes
  • We request that our patients are psychologically stable
  • Most candidates experience fat or loose skin around the neck area
  • Many Neck Lift candidates have a double chin
  • Candidates have muscle laxity under their chin
  • Candidates should have realistic expectations

What’s the First Step?

The first step towards a Neck Lift at Plastic Surgery Scottsdale is to contact our friendly clinic to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Alexander Golger and discuss your cosmetic goals and concerns. Dr. Golger will perform a thorough examination of your face and neck, review your medical history, and answer any questions you may have about the Neck Lift technique you are interested in. Based on this information, he will recommend the best treatment options to help you achieve your desired results.

What to Expect on the Day of Neck Lift

A Neck Lift procedure in Scottsdale, AZ will usually take about 2-3 hours to perform. We use a general anesthetic or local anesthetic with intravenous sedation. It begins with making two incisions located around the ears. Dr. Golger will then lift the sagging neck tissue and trim away loose skin. With an additional incision beneath the chin, we can also access and remodel the neck muscles, which is referred to as Platysmal Plication. This neck-tightening strategy reduces visible signs of aging, and the result is a smooth, youthful neck contour. Another technique we may use is Liposuction, which can remove excess fat from the neck permanently.

Neck Lift Recovery

After completing your procedure at Plastic Surgery Scottsdale, dressings are applied to the treatment area. We may prescribe an elastic garment for support and healing purposes that should be worn for the first few days, post-op. Any discomfort experienced can be managed with the prescription medication that our team will provide. You can expect to see some swelling and bruising, but these side effects will subside, and you can appreciate the healed results of your Neck Lift within a few weeks. The full recovery time from a Neck Lift surgery can vary depending on the extent of the surgery. When complete, patients can generally return to their regular routine within just 1-2 weeks.
