Before & After

Your Neck Lift

A neck lift surgery is a cosmetic procedure that reduces signs of aging in the neck and below the chin. Several techniques may be utilized for this procedure, but the general goals are very similar in each case — eliminating those jowls and reducing the presence of the dreaded turkey wattle. A neck lift with Dr. Rosen can leave you looking refreshed and rejuvenated, enabling you to walk years off the clock. If this sounds like the right procedure for you, we want to hear from you! Reach out and set up your consultation to learn more about what the neck lift can do for you today.

What Can a Neck Lift Do for Me?

In most cases, neck lift patients are 40 years of age or older, but we’ve performed this procedure on plenty of younger patients, as well. The only real requirement is that you’ve reached facial maturity. Healthy non-smokers are the best candidates, and you should notify Dr. Rosen if you have high blood pressure, a history of problems with blood clotting, or a tendency to form prominent scars.

During your consultation, Dr. Rosen will help you by walking you through all your available options. You’re likely a great candidate for a neck lift here at Rosen Cosmetic Surgery if you’re in the Doylestown or Bucks County areas and you’re dealing with:

  • Drooping jowls
  • Neck creases or folds
  • Loose, excess skin on the neck
  • Fat deposits around the lower face and neck

How the Neck lift Procedure is Performed

Neck lift surgery is typically an outpatient procedure that takes about two to three hours to complete, with local anesthesia being the most common choice (but general anesthesia is always an option). Neck lift incisions are similar to a facelift, placed near the temple, following the natural contour of your skin toward the neck. An additional incision may be placed below the chin, through which Dr. Rosen will separate the skin from the fat and muscle. 

Underlying tissues are tightened and the skin is lifted, trimmed, and redraped to produce an improved neck contour. Special sutures are placed to fixate the layers of tissue and close the surgical incisions.

A neck lift procedure has several variations: A procedure called platysmaplasty remodels part of a neck muscle that has a tendency to sag, while another procedure simply removes excess skin from the neck area. If fat deposits are present under your chin and you have adequate skin tone, liposuction may be the right choice, enabling us to sculpt and tone the area, with a minimally-invasive surgical procedure.

Preparing for Your Neck Lift

Your consultations with Dr. Rosen are going to be your chance to ask any questions that you might have, and we’ll walk you through just about everything you might want to know about your procedure, its recovery time, and everything else that you’ll go through on your cosmetic journey. Together, we’ll develop a treatment plan that unites you with your ideal cosmetic goals.

Recovering from Your Neck Lift

Although it may vary with different techniques, the average recovery time after a neck lift is around two to three weeks. 

After your surgery, a bandage will be wrapped around your lower face to minimize swelling. Some numbness, swelling, and bruising are normal, and you’ll be advised by Dr. Rosen to keep your head elevated during the initial recovery period. 

Your stitches will be removed during the first week, during which you should plan to relax and get plenty of rest.

Possible Neck lift Complications

Like all surgical procedures, a neck lift carries a risk of complications and side effects. Possible adverse events include but are not limited to hematoma, infection, reaction to anesthesia, and poor healing. If the possibility of complications is a particular concern for you, ask Dr. Rosen for more information.
