Frequently Asked Questions about Neck Lifts

Am I a good candidate for neck lift surgery?
Neck lifts are intended to help men and women who have started to notice excess wrinkling of the skin on the neck, a “turkey wattle” or double chin, or pronounced jowl lines, but who feel that they are not ready for, or are unwilling to undergo, a full facelift procedure.  Optimal candidates include healthy, non-smokers who do not have any medical conditions that might impair healing and who have a positive outlook and realistic expectations about the ultimate results of their procedure.

How much time will I need in order to recover after a neck lift procedure?
In most cases, recovery after a neck lift procedure takes anywhere from two to four weeks, although some patients do recover more rapidly or more slowly depending on their natural healing abilities and overall health. The majority of people are able to go back to work just one to two weeks after a neck lift procedure, assuming that they carefully observe their surgeon’s post-operative instructions. Scars are usually minimal and are easily disguised within the natural creases of the skin or by the patient’s hair.

Is it possible to combine a neck lift with other facial rejuvenation procedures?
Absolutely, a neck lift can often be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures in order to address multiple areas of concern simultaneously.  The procedure pairs well with a brow lift, to correct a sagging or deeply furrowed brow, fat transfer, to add fullness to the lips and cheeks and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or even eyelid surgery, to rejuvenate aging eyes.  Many patients find that performing multiple procedures within a single plastic surgery session can help minimize recovery time and reduce overall costs.
