How Does A Neck Lift Get Rid Of Loose Neck Skin?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


One of the inevitable consequences of aging is a loss of skin elasticity, prompted by a breakdown of the body’s natural supply of collagen and elastin. This results in loose, hanging skin and unwanted wrinkles. For many men and women, these symptoms of aging first begin to appear on the face, leading patients to pursue a variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatments to turn back the clock, such as facelift surgery. However, the neck is often forgotten when it comes to anti-aging treatments and routine skin care until it begins to show visible sagging and drooping. In many cases, this excess hanging skin under the chin and on the neck can make men and women appear dramatically older or heavier than they actually are. Furthermore, the double-chin effect caused by excess skin on the neck can, understandably, be frustrating and embarrassing.

What is a neck lift?

The neck lift is a highly beneficial cosmetic procedure designed to smooth, lift, and tighten the neck for a more youthful, firm, and attractive contour. This is primarily accomplished through neck skin tightening, excess skin removal, and muscle tightening, though in some cases liposuction is also utilized to address stubborn pockets of fat and further enhance neck lift results.


How is a neck lift done?

During your neck lift procedure in Las Vegas or Beverly Hills, which is typically performed using local anesthesia and IV sedation in one of our fully accredited surgical facilities, Dr. Myint will place thin, precise incisions either in front of your ears or behind them to minimize visible scarring. If small pockets of fat are present, Dr. Myint may utilize liposuction for fat removal as part of your neck lift surgery. Depending on the specific nature and severity of your concerns, Dr. Myint will then lift and tighten the muscles and skin, trim the excess skin, and close the incisions with sutures.


Who is a good candidate for neck lift surgery?

Ideal candidates for neck lift surgery should be:


  • In good overall health
  • At a healthy, stable weight
  • Have concerns about excess skin on their neck, loose skin under the chin, or neck banding
  • Have realistic expectations for their results


The best way to determine with certainty whether you qualify for neck lift surgery in Beverly Hills or Las Vegas is to be evaluated by an experienced surgeon like Dr. Myint. During your initial consultation, Dr. Myint will thoroughly examine your neck and chin, discuss your specific concerns and goals, explain all of your options in detail, and recommend a customized treatment plan that will best fit your needs.


Is there a nonsurgical way to get rid of turkey neck?

For patients who are not ready, willing, or able to undergo neck lift surgery – or for those who simply prefer a less invasive alternative – nonsurgical skin tightening may be a fantastic option. This innovative treatment utilizes laser energy to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, resulting in the generation of new, healthy skin cells and a firmer skin tone. While the results of nonsurgical skin tightening can take several weeks or months to develop, they should continue to improve as the body ramps up its collagen production. However, for patients with a more moderate to severe degree of loose, sagging skin, a surgical neck lift may be a more appropriate option.
