Lower rhytidectomy can trim excess skin, draw the platysmal bands taut, and reduce stubborn submental fat. In the hands of a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Esmailian, a neck lift can enhance your self-image, restoring a sense of security and self-confidence.

What is a neck lift?

While many plastic surgery procedures focus on the face as the primary target of anti-aging regimens, any rejuvenation plan would be remiss to emit changes to the neck. Skin laxity coupled with vertical muscle banding, wrinkles, creases, and lines can draw attention away from the smile and the eyes, compromising one’s attractiveness.

With neck lift surgery, patients can feel more confident making a favorable first impression, both professionally and socially. Dr. Esmailian uses advanced, cutting-edge technology to smooth and reshape the neck contours, delivering a natural-looking result that effectively rolls back the clock on aging. Many patients opt to undergo additional cosmetic procedures at the same time, such as a facelift, blepharoplasty, or brow lift.

What are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?

  • Reduces sagging skin
  • Smooths out wrinkles, lines, and creases
  • Combats submental fat
  • Improves definition in the jawline
  • Tightens neck muscles
  • Creates a more youthful, engaging appearance
  • Enhances satisfaction with one’s image
  • Natural-looking outcome
  • Long-lasting results
  • Can be well paired with liposuction and facelift surgery

Who Makes an Ideal Candidate for a Neck Lift?

Patients seeking a slimmer, tighter neck appearance with reduced sagging and banding will be happy to discover the remarkable benefits of a surgical neck lift. As performed by Dr. Esmailian, a neck lift can beautifully restore a firm, supple profile that is youthful and inviting. 

Good candidates for the procedure are non-smokers of sound mind and body who are free from any significant issues with their overall health. They have realistic, positive attitudes toward their results and understand that while a neck lift can help improve the appearance, it cannot deliver “perfection.”

What can I Expect from my Recovery?

After neck lift surgery, you’ll need to enlist the assistance of a friend, family member, or paid helper. This person will drive you home and care for you during the first 24 hours.

Once home, you’ll need to rest with your head elevated for several days. Swelling, bruising, and soreness may be present, but Dr. Esmailian will make sure you are as comfortable as possible with prescription pain medications, antibiotics, and a thorough aftercare plan customized to your needs. Most patients find they can return to work and other normal activities within around 2 weeks, provided their job is not physically taxing. Rigorous exercise should be avoided for at least 4 weeks and will need to be cleared by Dr. Esmailian first.
