The primary benefit of getting a neck lift is to improve the elasticity of the neck and to diminish the appearance of unattractive jowls. A neck lift procedure will help you look years younger once the vertical lines and loose skin are removed, which greatly works to boost the confidence and self-esteem of the patient as well.
Our medical specialists, led by Dr. Chris Gangnes, can help take years off your appearance through a neck lift. Performed in one of our three Orange County surgical centers, the neck lift can help remove sagging or extra skin from around your neck to give you a tighter, more youthful appearance. Neck lifts are often done as part of a traditional facelift and our medical staff can help determine the best treatment option for your needs.

Basically, a fleshy or saggy neck is a profound sign of aging that generally becomes more noticeable even if a person’s face still appears relatively youthful. Many people tend to neglect their neck and primarily only focus on the healthcare regimen of their face, which allows it to age even quicker. Also, a significant change in weight can be very obvious in the neck area and may cause premature aging. However, a neck lift can revitalize the neck and is also much less invasive than a traditional facelift.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Fatty deposits beneath the chin, lax muscles, and loose skin can all produce a ‘turkey neck’ or jowly look that can obscure the definition of the jaw line and chin. Some of the key benefits of getting a neck lift procedure include:
- Correcting jowls
- Eliminating fat deposits beneath the chin
- Much less invasive than a traditional facelift
- Eliminates excess skin
- Corrects ‘turkey neck’
- Tightens lax muscles in the neck
- Produces a defined jaw line
How a Neck Lift Works
During a neck lift, liposuction is performed in order to eliminate fat pockets in the jowls, neck, and beneath the chin in order to produce a defined jaw line. A key muscle known as the platysma muscle is tightened and thus restores the angle of the chin and neck. The end result is a more youthful and toned looking jaw line and neck that enhances your face.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Regardless of your age or weight, a turkey neck, banding, or double chin is often the result of your genetics. In this case, no amount of skin care or exercise will adequately correct how your neck looks. But, in the end none of that matters since a neck lift can give you the attractive profile you’ve always dreamed of.
A neck lift procedure is ideal if you’re somewhat younger and you’ve lost a great deal of weight, which resulted in a sagging, loose neck, but you’re not yet ready for any facial cosmetic procedures.
You can choose to have just a neck lift or combine it with other kinds of cosmetic facial surgery techniques. In fact, a facelift will address the neck but is not actually targeted as a neck lift procedure. Some individuals need to improve the look of their necks, but not their face. For example, many people find that getting a neck lift combined with blepharoplasty or a brow lift produces a desirable targeted combination that more specifically handles those key problem areas and can deliver the attractive results they want.
A tight, smooth neck is sure sign of youth and general vitality. However, the neck is often a dead giveaway of someone’s age. A neck lift procedure can greatly enhance a person’s appearance and confidence level, making them look years younger than they really are.
