Neck Lift

The saggy skin in the neck area creates the “turkey neck,” which no longer has to be tolerated thanks to a neck lift, which removes extraneous fat and skin.
The resulting look is a sleeker, more contoured neck and profile. STARS Plastic Surgery will perform the isolated neck lift where there are a reduced number of incisions made for minimal chance of scarring. The incisions will be made discreetly behind the ear or under the chin where the doctor will remove saggy skin and excessive fat. Neck liposuction can be combined with the neck lift to boost the benefits.

A neck lift removes hanging skin and reshapes the neck. During the procedure, an incision is placed under the chin and/or behind or in front of the ears. If fat deposits are present and need to be removed, liposuction will first be performed, prior to the neck lift itself. The final steps of treatment will be to trim away excess skin, pull the remaining underlying tissue and muscle tight, and suture the incision.


This procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited surgical clinic. The duration of the surgery usually takes around 2 hours, although it may vary depending on the case. Bruising and swelling will be visible after the surgery, but this will subside in the few short days following the procedure. Initially, patients will feel tightness and numbness. Once the neck adjusts to its new position, patients will notice a more relaxed feeling and a beautiful surgical result. It can take up to 6 months for the final results to appear.

Neck Lift FAQs

How Can I Fix My Saggy Neck Without Surgery?
Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it is loose enough to hang and droop. Therefore, a neck lift is the only solution when it comes to redefining an individual’s neck to create a strong contour. While there are very good skin tightening laser treatments on the market today, surgery is still the best option.
Where Are Scars For Neck Lift?
There is minimal scarring with this procedure. Since the incision is placed under the chin and near the ears, the scarring is usually hidden. A skilled facial surgeon will take great effort to minimize scarring as much as possible.
What Age Is Best For A Neck Lift?
This depends on the situation and the amount of loose and sagging skin that is present. Some weight loss patients are young and may require a neck lift at a young age (for example, those between 20-30). For older patients who are combating loose skin due to aging, the most common age is between 50-70.
Am I A Facelift Neck Lift or Chin Implant Candidate?
During the initial consultation, it may be brought up that in addition to a neck lift, the patient may also benefit from another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the patient’s desired contours and aesthetic goals.
