Fortunately, Dr. Schwartz is highly skilled in the art of the neck lift – reversing these telltale signs of aging and restoring your neck’s youthful curves and contours. In many cases, a neck lift is combined with a facelift, providing comprehensive rejuvenation.

What can a neck lift accomplish?

When performed by an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Schwartz, a neck lift is able to successfully:

  • Firm and tighten the skin on the neck.
  • Smooth lines, wrinkles, creases and folds.
  • Improve the appearance of loose, vertical bands.
  • Eliminate excess fat and skin.
  • Correct a “turkey wattle” neck.
  • Sculpt a more defined jawline.
  • Create a more rejuvenated overall appearance that will help you look as young as you feel.

An overview of a neck lift

To prepare for a neck lift, Dr. Schwartz will thoroughly explain what you can expect from the procedure during your initial consultation. During that time, he will carefully evaluate your unique needs and make recommendations that will ensure an optimal outcome.

To begin your actual surgery, one of our board certified anesthesiologists will administer general anesthesia to ensure your total comfort and safety. After creating small incisions under the chin and behind each ear, he will carefully tighten your neck muscles, remove sagging skin and smooth any lines and wrinkles. Once your smooth and youthful neck has been successfully restored, Dr. Schwartz will expertly close the incisions to ensure the resulting scars are virtually imperceptible.

What to expect during recovery

Since a neck lift is a significant procedure, it is important that allow yourself time to properly recover. During this time, it’s normal to experience some pain and discomfort, though it should be manageable with the pain medication Dr. Schwartz prescribes. As you heal, you’ll be advised to get plenty of rest, and avoid strenuous activity. Though most individuals are able to resume their normal daily routine within 1-2 weeks, Dr. Schwartz will offer personalized guidance for your recovery period during your post-operative appointments.

Is a neck lift right for you?

As Dr. Schwartz believes in truly personalized care, he determines candidacy for all of his procedures on an individual basis. However, in general, most men and women can be considered candidates for a neck lift if they are bothered by wrinkled and sagging skin, jowls and vertical bands on the neck.

In addition, candidates for this procedure should be in good overall health and possess realistic expectations of what the procedure can accomplish. When performed by a highly skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. Schwartz, a neck lift won’t significantly alter your appearance so that you look like someone else entirely. You’ll still look like you – just with a more refreshed and youthful overall look.
