Neck Lift Surgery

Visible signs of aging along the neck and jawline can cause a person to look older, tired, and worn out. Neck lift surgery can reduce signs of aging caused by time, heredity, and gravity. A “turkey waddle” and double chin can be diminished during neck lift surgery to provide a beautifully shaped neckline. Neck lift surgery can help a patient look nearly 10 years younger by removing hanging skin and excess fat from the neck and jowls.

Achieved With Neck Lift Surgery

A More Youthful Look

A neck lift can provide a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

During neck lift surgery, Dr. Diamond will remove loose, hanging skin from the neck and excess fatty deposits from under the chin to create a much younger appearance.

Diminished Lines & Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles along the neck and jowls develop due to loose facial skin.

During neck lift surgery, Dr. Diamond will tighten the skin that creates these bothersome signs of aging. Neck lift patients can expect a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Tighter Neck and Jawline

When there is excess skin and fat along the jawline, the lower portion of the face can look saggy and lax, often making a person appear older than their true age.

After removing this excess tissue, the skin is pulled back to tighten the entire neck and jawline.

Overall, patients can expect to achieve a tighter, more defined neck and jawline.

Dr. Diamond customizes each neck lift surgery to the patient’s needs and desires. He has operated on different types of people around the world and will create a surgical plan that provides natural-looking results that do not look “pulled back.”

Addressing Concerns You May Have

Recovery

After surgery, a bandage will be placed over the face and neck to reduce swelling and bruising.

Dr. Diamond will provide you with specific instructions on how to properly care for surgical sites and drains. It is recommended that your head is kept straight and elevated higher than your heart to minimize swelling.

Scars

Incisions will be made along the hairline at sideburn level and continue around the ear before ending in the posterior hairline.

After incisions have healed, patients will notice their scarring is hidden along the hairline and within the contours of the ear.

Pain

Patients should expect some pain due to swelling and bruising.

Dr. Diamond will prescribe oral medications to help to ease pain or discomfort.
