What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that reduces and improves the visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline areas. Specifically, a neck lift may help reduce and/or eliminate excess fat and skin sagging in the lower face that often creates jowls, excess fat deposits under the chin, loose neck skin, and the muscle banding in the neck that creates abnormal contours.

The loss of contours in the face and neck can be attributed to a variety of factors, including but not limited to, heredity, gravity, environment, and stress.

Why consider a Neck Lift?

Some people feel that they are not ready for a full facelift. However, their neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance. Many patients notice that they have excess wrinkling in the neck skin area, a double chin or “turkey wattle,” and have developed jowl lines.

A neck lift can help restore a clean and well defined neck and jaw line. The results of a neck lift can improve a patient’s facial shape and balance giving an appearance of weight loss and a healthier, more youthful look.
