Neck Lift


Neck lift surgery corrects loose skin and vertical bands on the neck as well as sagging jowls along the jawline. This procedure can remove excess fat, tighten the underlying neck muscle, and eliminate excess skin to improve the contour of the neck and jawline and create a more youthful profile.

Benefits of a Neck Lift


Removes Excess Fat Deposits

Displaced fat in the neck, along the jawline, and on the underside of the chin is removed to produce a slender and better defined lower face and neck.


Eliminates a “Turkey Neck”

Loose, sagging skin is tightened to eliminate a “turkey neck” and reveal smooth, wrinkle-free neck contours.


Defines Your Jawline

A sagging jawline or a jaw that blends in with the neck can be corrected to provide a chiseled jawline that distinctly separates your lower face from your neck.


Corrects Muscle Banding in the Neck

Vertical bands on the neck caused by a stretched platysma muscle are corrected as the muscle is tightened, and natural, youthful results are achieved.

Types of Neck Lifts


Full Neck Lift

During a full neck lift procedure, incisions are made under the chin and behind the ears. The platysma muscle is tightened (platysmaplasty), excess fat is removed, and the tissues are repositioned before excess skin is carefully trimmed away. The new contouring is secured with sutures, and the incisions are closed.


Liposuction Neck Lift

Patients with good skin quality and whose main signs of aging in the neck are due to excess or displaced fat can benefit from liposuction alone. Small, inconspicuously placed incisions are used to suction out fat through a cannula (thin, hollow tube).

Neck Lift FAQ

  • Q. What should I avoid prior to neck lift surgery?

    A. Patients undergoing neck lift surgery should stop smoking six weeks prior to surgery, and they avoid taking anti-inflammatory medication (e.g., aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.) and herbal medications that can cause increased bleeding for two weeks prior to surgery.

  • Q. How will I feel after neck lift surgery?

    A. After surgery, the neck will be bruised and feel tight. The bruising should resolve over a period of four to five days, but neck tightness may last several months.

I Loved Working With Dr. Tseng

and felt that he spent time understanding my personal goals. I was not trying to look “20 something” — I just wanted to look the best I could at this age. I plan to continue aging beautifully with Dr. Tseng helping me define my own beauty.
