A necklift is a procedure performed to rejuvenate the neck. As patients age, the neck skin and neck muscles begin to sag down. The necklift is a minimally invasive procedure that can improve the appearance of the neck.
The necklift is done on an outpatient basis under IV sedation. There are 3 incisions, one under the chin and one behind each ear. Gentle liposuction is done in the neck area and then the neck muscles are tightened. The skin is the tightened over the neck muscles to give a smoother neck contour. The procedure takes about 1 ½ hours to complete. The patient returns home that day and is ready for normal activity in about 5-6 days.
