What is Neck Lift Surgery?

Also known as Platysmoplasty or lower Rhytidectomy, neck lift surgery targets visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline areas such as:

  • A jowled appearance resulting from lax skin and excess fat
  • Fat accumulation underneath the chin
  • Loose skin in the neck
  • Muscle banding in the neck

In addition to the natural aging process, these can also be caused by heredity, stress, and environmental conditions. During neck lift surgery, incisions are typically made in the chin area; and depending on the loose skin present, hairline at the level of the sideburn and continue around the ear. Depending on your condition and cosmetic goals, underlying tissues are removed and repositioned, and excess fat is either redistributed, repositioned, or extracted.

After Dr. Singhal removes excess tissues, the remaining skin is then re-draped to create tighter, more youthful contours. All incisions are carefully placed, taking as much care as possible to limit visible scarring.

Am I a Good Candidate for Neck Lift Surgery?

Men and women who either do not want or do not qualify for full facelift surgery, or who have visible signs of aging primarily in the lower face, may be candidates for neck lift surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Singhal will assess several factors including your health, medical history, cosmetic goals, and expectations for surgery to determine if neck lift surgery is right for you.

What is Recovery Like?

After neck lift surgery, bandages may be placed around your neck for 2 days in order to control bruising and swelling, and protect your new neck contours. Doctor Singhal will provide you with post-surgical instructions to properly care for your incision sites and help prevent complications such as fluid accumulation..

As every patient heals differently, Dr. Singhal will advise you on how much time you should take off from work as well as when you should be able to return to normal and more vigorous activities.
