What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to tighten loose neck muscles and remove excess, sagging skin to restore a smoother, firmer, and more defined neck and jawline. This procedure can also remove neck fat, which can help to correct issues like a double chin, providing a more youthful and slimmed neck contour.

Candidates for a Neck Lift

Ideal candidates for a neck lift include men and women experiencing age-related changes to the skin and muscles of the neck area, such as banding, drooping, and skin laxity that often come with aging. The procedure is also suitable for individuals who have lost significant weight and are left with excess skin in the neck area. We recommend scheduling a consultation at Rostami OPC in McLean, Virginia, to see if this is the best treatment for you. During your consultation at Rostami OPC, our surgeons will evaluate your concerns and determine if a neck lift is the best option for achieving your cosmetic goals.

Neck Lift Treatment

At Rostami OPC, neck lift surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The procedure usually involves making small incisions behind the ears and under the chin to access the neck muscles and tissues. Excess skin is trimmed away, and your underlying muscles are tightened. If necessary, liposuction is used to remove excess fat. The remaining skin is then adjusted into place to create a smoother, more youthful neckline.

Neck Lift Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from a neck lift involves a short downtime, with most patients able to return to work and other normal activities within two weeks. You can expect some bruising and swelling, which will gradually subside over a few weeks. Rostami OPC provides aftercare instructions to help manage discomfort and ensure optimal healing. It’s essential to keep your head elevated and avoid strenuous activities during recovery.
