Signs of aging begin to show on the neck first. In addition, extreme weight loss and sun damage only contribute to the neck looking aged, sagging, and loose. Fortunately, there are several available solutions, such as neck lift plastic surgery if the skin on your neck has lost its natural elasticity and has begun sagging.
The procedure can be used to eliminate excess skin and fat as well. However, a neck lift surgery for achieving slim, smooth, and youthful looking neck can only be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon.

Sundin, provides neck lift surgery to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Flaws Treated with Neck Lift
Neck lift can be used for getting rid of loose bands of fat and skin that tend to accumulate with age. The procedure is useful in accentuating the jawline and reducing a jowly appearance.
While the surgery will not completely restore your skin to its youthful appearance, it can make you appear years younger. Also, you can attain an impression of weight loss with neck lift. It’s crucial that you openly speak with your doctor about expected results so that you have reasonable expectations.
Neck lift cosmetic surgery when combined with precision liposuction can be used for removing stubborn fat from around the neck. Excess skin can be treated and tightened after the liposuction for a more appealing appearance.
Candidacy for Neck Lift
Ideal candidates are adults between 40 to 80 years of age that want to correct:
- Wind or sun damaged neck skin
- Fat under the chin – double or triple chin
- Slack or loose neck skin – turkey wattle neck
- Too much fat or skin under the jaws – jowls
- Excess skin or fat on the neck
Neck Lift Procedure
Neck lift procedure is among the more transformative treatments in cosmetic medicine. A qualified cosmetic surgeon can rejuvenate your appearance dramatically by restructuring the underlying platysma muscle and removing excess fat and skin deposits.
The surgeon will make tiny incisions behind and around the ear during the procedure. They will make another one under the chin. The surgeon will close the incisions after removing extra fat and skin, and tightening the muscles in the neck. They will apply a pressure dressing underneath the chin and around the head.
Patients undergoing neck lift surgery should be prepared to take a few days off work. It can take anywhere from 5 to 7 days for you to be able to resume work. You would need to be careful about avoiding strenuous activity, such as sports or heavy lifting for a few weeks.
Neck Lift Surgery Results
Generally, neck lift results improve over time. This is even when the patient has healed following the surgery. The most notable results may take up to six months to fully come to fruition. Patients that refrain from indulging in lifestyle habits that could impair the results, such as smoking and drinking are more likely to achieve their desired appearance in a timely manner.
Post-surgical scarring following a neck lift procedure is generally minimal. This is especially when the procedure is performed by an accomplished, dependable, and respectable surgeon.
