Neck Lift in Philadelphia
Plastic Surgeon & Medical Spa Serving Bryn Mawr and The Main Line of Philadelphia, PA
What is a neck lift?
The skin on a person’s neck can sag as a result of aging or weight loss, and is often affected before the face. A neck lift is a surgical procedure that can smooth and tighten this skin to provide a more toned and youthful appearance. The results of this procedure offer a drastic improvement to the appearance of the neck and subtle changes to overall appearance.
Having loose neck muscles can lead to bands on the neck or drastic drooping of the skin. This can lower an individuals self-confidence as they believe people are looking at their aging skin and not them.
Benefits of Neck Lift Surgery
The benefits of having a neck lift range from a more youthful appearing neck to tightening the underlying muscle. This type of procedure is for someone who wants a real improvement in the appearance of their neck area. The benefits include:
- smoother neck skin
- rejuvenated appearance
- tightened underlying muscle
- improved confidence
“Everyone was professional and courteous. I was overwhelmed with the kindness and the way each person I met knew their job. The consultation flowed nicely from the care coordinator to the surgeon to the person who did the photography. The facility is stunning and I felt so confident and comfortable that I did not feel a second opinion was warranted.”

Neck Lift Procedure
A neck lift procedure includes both a cervicoplasty to remove excess skin and a platysmaplasty to remove or alter muscles in the neck. Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat during a neck lift. This takes two to three hours and may be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the preference of the patient. Most procedures are performed within an outpatient basis.
Can A Neck Lift Be Combined With A Facelift?
A neck lift may be performed alongside a facelift, or may be performed alone. When combined together, these procedures can transform a man or woman’s appearance and give them the youthful look they want to maintain in the future.
What can i expect during recovery?
Swelling and bruising may occur shortly after the procedure and last up to ten days. Most people can return to work and other regular activities within two weeks after a neck lift procedure.
Are There Any Risks Associated With The Procedure?
There are certain risks involved in a neck lift, as there is with any surgical procedure, including problems with anesthesia or infection. There is also a risk of facial nerve damage that may occur during surgery and can result in muscle paralysis. Although these complications are rare, they emphasize the importance of choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon.
