About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you sick of wearing scarves or turtlenecks, even in warm weather, to conceal the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Edward M. Zimmerman performs neck lift surgery at his practice in Las Vegas, NV to correct the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery tightens the area under your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a "turkey neck" or "double chin."

"I recently visited for fillers on my cheekbone and jawline (Radiesse Plus), as well as some wrinkle relaxer (Xeomin). The process took a little longer than I had expected but the injector was well versed in her practice and very gentle with me. I am very happy with the results. There was a little bruising which is normal with deeper fillers, but from day 1 it was a great improvement. Never thought that just a couple syringes (ok ok like 4 Radiesse, 1 Xeomin) could make such a difference in how I see myself and how others do as well. Highly recommend."- M.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2019

Men and women hoping to undergo neck lift treatment generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If your weight is stable, but you feel frustrated by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles along the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great answer.
During a neck lift procedure, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed around your ears, while another one may also be made underneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction of the neck would be completed first. Next, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is conducted until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been achieved. Even though sutures are used to close the incision, scars should not be visible since they are located beneath your chin. A nonsurgical Z-plasty by Renuvion may also be incorporated to complement the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface, such as RF skin tightening or a peel, to produce a vibrantly glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away around 7 – 10 days. It's important to rest and eliminate high-impact activity for several weeks to assist in the healing period. While recovering, clothing should not touch the neck area. You should notice visible outcomes almost immediately. In addition, it has been stated that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant improvements to an individual's profile, taking a decade off your appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a neck lift cost?
Costs for your neck lift surgery will be reviewed in your consultation with Dr. Z. As soon as he has developed your surgical plan, he will be able to estimate prices for the anesthesia, facility, and other fees. To make your neck lift surgery easy to afford, Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas takes several payment methods, plus, we can tell you more about how to get low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Neck lift surgery is the best option to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it droops or hangs. Although there are a few nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that may give you mild improvements, a neck lift surgery can dramatically redefine and smooth your neckline. Dr. Z also offers Z-plasty, which can help create a seamless neckline.
Will I have visible scars?
Neck lift surgery does include one incision below the chin, as well as two more close to the ears. These are made so the scars are difficult for others to see. Dr. Z tries very hard during neck lift surgery to limit visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will encourage your incisions to heal flat and thin.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, you can bring up that you are thinking about another surgery, like a facelift or brow lift, along with a neck lift. It's normal for two or more face surgeries to be done together to get your best results. If you are concerned about an undefined jawline or weak chin, tell Dr. Z so he can develop a plan that meets all your goals.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Based on your concerns and goals, you might want to combine a neck lift with liposuction. A lift plus lipo may be best if you are concerned about both loose skin and fat pockets in your neck. Dr. Z can help you choose whether a lift, lipo, or a combination of both should be included in your surgical plan.
