What is the Best Age for A Neck Lift?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


One of the most frustrating signs of aging is excess skin in the face and neck. Loose hanging skin beneath the chin, or what some call a turkey neck, can make you seem older than you are. As a result, some people feel self-conscious or avoid wearing anything that brings attention to their necks. Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery is excited to offer an age-reversing solution that can make you feel confident in your neckline again.

A neck lift is designed to specifically address the neck area, making your profile appear young and smooth-looking. So, what is the best age for neck lift surgery? When you schedule a consultation with Oculo Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint, we can review your problem areas and create a custom solution for you. Call our clinic in Beverly Hills, CA or Las Vegas, NV to get the process started.

What is a neck lift?

Loose neck tissue is often caused by natural aging, environmental factors such as sun damage, and major weight loss. Neck lift surgery improves these visible signs of aging along the jawline and neck. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, we remove loose hanging skin and fat deposits, then tighten the underlying tissues to enhance your neckline. Since incisions are made in discreet areas, scarring from neck lift surgery is usually well concealed.

Factors that affect your candidacy

Most patients think there is an age requirement with neck lift surgery. Actually, there are many factors we take into consideration when planning your procedure in Beverly Hills, CA or Las Vegas, NV. These factors include:

  • Loss of volume: Patients who experience mild volume loss can restore some fullness with temporary dermal fillers or other noninvasive solutions. Those with moderate to severe volume loss, however, will benefit more from neck lift surgery.

  • Skin quality: During your examination, Dr. Myint assesses the health and laxity of your skin. Our goal is to make sure this procedure can achieve your cosmetic goals. It is also critical in determining the right approach for your neck lift.

  • Lifestyle factors: Certain lifestyle factors may affect your candidacy for surgery. For example, patients are required to stop smoking in preparation for their neck lift. Smoking can affect the recovery process and increase your risk of complications.

What is the best age for neck lift surgery?

Everyone ages differently. So, the question is not necessarily what is the best age for neck lift surgery, but what is the best age for you. As long as you are physically healthy and feel challenged by loose folds of skin along your neck, this procedure may be a great option. While there is no magic number, most patients are between the ages of 35 – 65. If you are interested in getting rid of loose hanging skin from your neckline, now is the best time to schedule a consultation with Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery.
