What is a Neck Lift?
A Neck Lift (or Platysmaplasty) can tighten sagging skin and reduce excess fat and/or “banding” on the neck. Loose skin and neck banding are usually associated with aging, but hereditary factors can cause even younger men and women to lose definition in their jaw line and neck. Significant weight loss can also contribute to sagging or hanging skin, requiring a neck lift. Marin County men and women may appear older than they are because of this condition. We can remove excess skin on the neck and along the jaw line with a Neck Lift.

Neck Cosmetic may require Liposuction to first eliminate excess fat in the neck area. Thereafter Neck Lift will necessitate repositioning the underlying structures of the neck and jaw to be successful. Today’s technology provides for smaller incisions than ever, making for faster recovery times and less scarring for our patients. A single incision (on each side) around the ear and into the hairline at the back of the neck can often be sufficient for this Neck Plastic Surgery procedure.
Post Neck Lift Procedure
Neck Lift Plastic Surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis and may take as little as one hour under local or general anesthesia. Recovery can take some time though, because the Neck Lift is an invasive procedure and will cause swelling. Some muscle weakness and numbness may also occur after a Neck Lift. Bandages and any drains used in Neck Lift can be removed after a few days, but most people will want to wait 10 to 14 days to return to work and even longer for more strenuous activity.
