The Basics of a Neck Lift

Having a nice, well-defined neckline is a small thing that can make a dramatic difference in your facial appearance. Factors like age, weight loss, and genetics all contribute to problems like loose neck skin, sagging jowls, or a double chin.

Unfortunately, the neck is not an area that responds well to diet, exercise, or most over-the-counter skincare treatments, unlike other facial areas. It may be easy to resign yourself to a less-than-ideal neckline, but the good news is that you don’t have to. Neck lifts are employed by plastic surgeons to help patients achieve their ideal look. 

In fact, in 2019, plastic surgeons performed more than 54,000 neck lifts across the United States. This surgery can even be combined with other facial contouring procedures to help you achieve the youthful, graceful profile you seek.

What can a neck lift do for your appearance?

A neck lift can drastically alter your profile and jawline, taking years off and making you look years younger.

What can a neck lift do for your appearance?

A neck lift can drastically alter your profile and jawline, taking years off and making you look years younger.

Neck lifts are intended to restore the slim, youthful contours of your neck by treating issues such as:

  • Double chin
  • “Turkey neck” or loose, sagging neck skin
  • Excess fat or drooping skin of the lower face
  • Excessive wrinkling of the neck skin

Are you a good candidate for a neck lift?

Ideal candidates for a neck lift meet the following criteria:

  • In generally good health
  • Non-smokers
  • Have no medical conditions that slow or impair healing
  • Have realistic expectations for the final outcome

Oftentimes, a neck lift is performed in tandem with a lower facelift as the results from each procedure will complement one another and will reduce the need for a secondary procedure with a secondary recovery process. As with all cosmetic surgeries, it is important for patients to have a full understanding of what the procedure can and cannot do. When patients have a positive outlook and realistic expectations, they are much more satisfied with their surgical outcomes.

What can you expect during a neck lift procedure?

Because this is a surgery, your doctor will administer anesthesia before the procedure begins. The exact method of sedation will be discussed and finalized according to your needs.

During a neck lift, an incision is made that typically follows the contour from the top of your ear all the way to your lower hairline on both sides. From there, the surgeon may perform any of the following improvements based on the level of lift you wish to achieve:

  • Excess fat may be sculpted, removed, or redistributed to create more pleasing contours
  • Tissues beneath the skin may be repositioned and tightened
  • Skin will be redraped and positioned over the newly made contours. Any excess skin will be trimmed away
  • If correcting a double chin, another small incision will be made in order to liposuction and tighten the area

Stellar Service from Start to Finish


Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.


The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.

What will your neck lift recovery be like?

Your doctor will give you specific instructions to follow before you’re sent home, and it’s critical to follow them closely. This ensures that you get the best possible results and recover as quickly as possible. 

It’s important to keep your head elevated and to move your neck as little as possible so that the stitches remain intact. Residual bruising and swelling may last for several weeks or more, but as you heal, you will see the improved contours of your neck and jawline.
