Candidates for Neck Lift Surgery
Individuals who benefit from neck lift surgery often have hanging jowls, noticeable baggy skin around their necks, visible neck bands or excess fatty tissue in the neck area. All of these are common effects of aging, though people may experience these symptoms at different ages, meaning there is no ideal age for a neck lift.
Some people, when indicated, opt for neck lift surgery in combination with their face lift for a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation. On the other hand, people who feel that they aren’t ready for a facelift can benefit from neck lift surgery to tighten and improve the neck contours and create an overall more youthful look.

Your Neck Lift Procedure
Dr. Andan offers complimentary consultations for those interested in learning more about a neck lift, so that you can feel comfortable and confident about moving forward with your procedure. He’ll also go over your medical history to make sure you’re a good candidate.
A traditional neck lift involves a combination of any one or more of the following: removing excess fat in the neck area with liposuction, tightening the muscles in the neck and removing the excess skin. The incisions for a neck lift are well-hidden. Your neck lift can also be customized to best address the extent of your needs. People with only a small amount of excess skin and tissue may require smaller incisions and a less extensive procedure.
Dr. Andan closes all incisions meticulously to ensure optimal scar healing. Neck lift surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the individual, and is typically an outpatient procedure, so you can go home right away afterwards.
Your Recovery & Results
On the night of your neck lift, you will receive a phone call from our office to make sure you are feeling well and answer any questions you may have about your recovery.
The exact recovery process varies for each individual. It’s normal to experience some amount of swelling and bruising immediately following your procedure. You would be required to wear a compression headband for a few days after your procedure. You should keep your head elevated above your heart and avoid any unnecessary neck movements.
Most people are able to return to work and their other normal activities after 1 to 2 weeks. You can gradually ease back into light exercise after the first couple of weeks. Vigorous activity should be avoided for about 6 weeks. Once the swelling resolves and your final results develop, you should have noticeably sleeker, more youthful-looking neck contours that flatter the definition of your jawline and enhance your facial features.
