Learn About Neck Lift Surgery

Often overlooked as an effective area for rejuvenating appearance, the neckis actually among the first places to show obvious signs of aging. As elasticity is lost, skin can easily become loose or sagging causing wrinkling, double chin, “turkey neck”, or jowl lines. The appearance of double chin results from excess fat under the skin; turkey neck from loose neck skin; jowl lines appear due to excess fat or skin under the jaw. A neck lift procedure can provide dramatic solutions for patients wishing to correct these issues and in turn restore youthful appearance.

Through neck lift surgery, or rhytidectomy, men and women alike have aesthetically benefitted from the removal of excess skin along with tightened neck muscles and tissues. Neck lift restores smoothness and firmness to the neck improving the appearance of the neck and carrying the potential to improve youthful appearance without further surgeries.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Whetstone of Las Colinas Centre for Plastic Surgery performs safe and effective neck lift surgeries that deliver positive results. Through neck lift surgery, Dr. Whetstone’s patients have experienced

  • Smoother skin, with diminished wrinkles or creases, throughout the neck
  • Firmer skin with the removal of excess, sagging skin
  • Reduced or eliminated appearance of “turkey neck”, jowl lines or double chin
  • Improved appearance of bands of skin on the neck

Recovery from a neck lift procedure typically lasts around 7 to 10 days. Patients can expect bandaging around the neck and face to aid in minimizing swelling or bruising. Swelling, bruising, and a feeling of tightness are normal side effects of the procedure and will begin to subside within 1-2 weeks. Dr. Whetstone and his staff will provide detailed instructions in order to minimize recovery and maximize procedure results.
