As we get older, the skin and muscles in our necks become loose, creating an aged, sagging appearance. With a neck lift procedure, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gloria Duda and Harvard Fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Munique Maia can address this common issue and provide rejuvenating results by removing excess skin, tightening neck muscles and improving the contour of the jaw line.

What Is a Neck Lift?
Clinically known as a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift addresses vertical neck bands and sagging, wrinkled skin around your neck. During the procedure, the underlying musculature of the neck is tightened to treat sagging in the neck and create a sculpted, more youthful appearance. Excess neck skin is removed and re-draped to further enhance the rejuvenation of your jawline and neck.
Neck lifts often remove excess fat as well, eliminating a double chin and shaping a more defined profile. Incisions are typically concealed behind the ear and in front of the lower ear. Many patients elect to undergo a neck lift at the same time as a facelift in cases where both the face and neck show significant signs of aging.
Benefits of a Neck Lift
Benefits of a neck lift include:
- Improved angle of the neck
- Smoother skin around the neck
- Elimination of “turkey neck”
- Improved jaw line definition
- Correction of a double chin
- Improved self-confidence
Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?
You may be a good candidate for a neck lift if you:
- Have sagging skin around your neck
- Want to tighten loose neck muscles
- Would like to define the contour of your jaw line
- Are unhappy with the appearance of a double chin
- Want a rejuvenated appearance
- Have realistic expectations
If you would like to improve the appearance of a sagging, wrinkled or drooping neck but do not want to undergo a full facelift, a neck lift may be your ideal solution. By tightening the skin around your neck and enhancing your jaw line contour, Dr. Duda and Dr. Maia can diminish the signs of aging and restore your youthful appearance.
The first step in achieving an attractive neck begins with a consultation at McLean Plastic Surgery. During this important meeting, you will meet personally with Dr. Duda or Dr. Maia to discuss your unique goals and concerns. Also at this time, your medical history will be reviewed, your candidacy will be determined and all of your treatment options will be explained.
