Restore Youthful Contours with our Neck Lift Procedure

A neck lift is a cosmetic procedure that aims to restore the youthful appearance of the neck area by targeting visible signs of aging, such as sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and the development of vertical bands. These issues can be caused by factors like:

  • Gravity
  • Sun exposure
  • The natural aging process

Dr. Koonce uses advanced surgical techniques to:

  • Lift and tighten the underlying tissues
  • Remove excess skin
  • Contour the neck for a more defined and elegant profile

The Neck Lift Procedure

During Dr. Koonce’s neck lift procedure, incisions are made strategically, often hidden within natural creases or behind the ears, to minimize visible scarring. The underlying neck muscles are then gently tightened and repositioned, which can help address issues such as vertical neck bands or sagging skin. Additionally, excess fat deposits may be removed using liposuction techniques to sculpt the neck contours for a more defined and youthful appearance. Afterward, the remaining skin is carefully re-draped and tightened to ensure a smooth and natural result.

Experience the Benefits of a Neck Lift

A neck lift procedure effectively addresses sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and vertical bands in the neck, resulting in improved contours and a more defined neckline. Doing so restores a youthful and graceful appearance to the neck area.

Other neck lift benefits include the following:

By removing excess skin and tightening the underlying tissues, a neck lift helps to reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loose skin. The procedure provides a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance that can take years off your overall look.

A neck lift complements facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelifts, by creating a balanced profile. It helps to restore harmony between the face and neck, ensuring a seamless transition and a natural-looking result.

While the natural aging process will continue, the results of a neck lift are long-lasting. The procedure provides durable improvements that can be enjoyed for years, allowing you to maintain a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.

At Écosse Plastic Surgery, we customize each neck lift procedure to address your unique concerns and goals. This approach ensures the results are personalized and aligned with your desired outcome, delivering optimal satisfaction.

Candidacy for a Neck Lift

 Individuals with loose or sagging skin in the neck area may benefit from a neck lift. This could be due to natural aging, weight loss, or genetic factors. The procedure helps to tighten and rejuvenate the skin, improving the appearance of a sagging or "turkey wattle" neck.

Other candidacy considerations include the following:

  • Candidates who have excess fat deposits in the neck, resulting in the appearance of a "double chin" or fullness in the neck area, may find a neck lift beneficial. The procedure can remove excess fat and create a more sculpted, defined neck contour.
  • Visible vertical bands or cords in the neck caused by weakened or separated neck muscles can be addressed through a neck lift. The procedure tightens and repositions the underlying muscles, smoothing out the neck bands for a more youthful and toned look.
  • Ideal candidates for a neck lift are generally in good overall health. It is essential to disclose any medical conditions, previous surgeries, or current medications during the consultation process to ensure the procedure is safe and suitable for you.
  • Non-smokers tend to have better blood circulation and healing capacity, which can contribute to successful neck lift outcomes. Refraining from smoking before and after the procedure is typically recommended to minimize potential complications and support optimal healing.
