How Much Younger Can You Look With A Neck Lift?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


A double chin can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. If you hide your saggy jowls or feel upset when looking in the mirror, a neck lift can take up to 5 – 7 years off your appearance. Caused by loose neck skin and excess pockets of fat, surgery helps tighten this section of your body. It can also help define the jawline and provide proportionate beauty for the rest of your face. Often, to enhance their results, many patients combine this procedure with other facial surgeries, such as an eyelid lift or brow lift. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Shoib Myint is a board-certified and fellowship-trained Oculo Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon who specializes in neck lifts.

Though some nonsurgical options can help reduce the appearance of a turkey neck, you may ultimately require surgery to get your desired results. Using skin tightening and fat reduction techniques, Dr. Myint can help you turn back the hands of time. We encourage you to read through the blog and schedule a consultation for a neck lift.

How is a neck lift done?

This skin tightening procedure uses excess skin removal techniques to reshape the neck. Before your surgery, Dr. Myint completes a comprehensive appointment to decide if this procedure works best for you. In some cases, patients may benefit more from nonsurgical options, but Dr. Myint can outline this information during the appointment. After selecting the best method, patients receive a surgical plan for their neck lift, and it may also include other procedures, like a brow lift or an eyelid lift.

Once we have a plan mapped out, Dr. Myint performs your treatment as an outpatient procedure in the on-site, private AAAASF-accredited operation room. However, if you plan on combining it with a facelift, you may need to stay overnight for careful monitoring. At the beginning of your surgery, we use local anesthesia or IV sedation during the process. For patients who have pockets of fat, our team often utilizes a specialized liposuction method. After removing the fat, Dr. Myint takes away the loose skin underneath your chin. Finally, he places the sutures within the natural lines of your earlobes. By doing this, your scars will be minimized and concealed.
