What Is A Neck Lift?
As we age, we begin to lose collagen and elastin in our skin, often causing a deflated or droopy look. This is especially common in the neckline, which can result in the appearance of a double chin. To correct this cosmetic concern, oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint offers neck lift surgery at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV. This procedure removes loose skin below the chin and uses specialized tightening techniques to achieve a smoother and stronger neckline. If you'd like to address lax skin and improve the contours of your neckline, call our office in Las Vegas today to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Myint. He'd be happy to review your specific concerns to see if a neck lift is the right option for you.

Neck Lift Reviews
"#1. Please read on. Doctor Myint and his team are really extraordinary. Kind, friendly, professional and experts at what they do. I was contemplating a neck lift 4 years ago and had a free consultation with Dr. Myint. I'm about to turn 60 years old in April and my midlife crisis spoke to me. I can't explain to you how I feel. I had no doubts that Dr. Myint could perform the 4 hour operation flawlessly. One does need to take into consideration that one has to be healthy and free of their own health situations for everything to be without hiccups. That is what I was so appreciative of Dr. Myint. He spent 30+ minutes in our initial consultation explaining the ramifications of everything. My friends and strangers compliment me on how fresh and rested I look. SCORE! Thank you Dr. Myint and team. Regards, Sheryl and Button"- S.G. / Yelp / Feb 10, 2018

"I have always wanted to get a (blepharoplasty) upper and lower eyelid surgery. I chose Dr Myint because of his extensive experience with eye surgery as well as head and neck surgery. The staff made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions without hesitation. The day of my surgery I was feeling very anxious and nervous,about having my surgery done. Dr Myint and his staff made me feel very comfortable the day of my surgery to ease my anxiety. After my surgery Dr Myint and staff called me the day after to ease my mind about any questions that I had and to let me know that I didn't very well during the surgery. I cannot Express how much the surgery has changed my life. I was having trouble with my vision and the eye surgery took care of that issue. Not only did the surgery take care of my vision issues but also took 10 years off of my appearance to give me a more youthful look. I cannot thank Dr Myint and his staff enough for this positive experience and outcome. I would recommend Dr Myint to anyone looking to improve their appearance , vision and quality of life.

"Below is a posting from a friend of mine who is Dr. Myint's patient.) For those who might be in question of having surgery at 80 years old, I highly recommend Dr Myint. He did a lower neck lift on me and It is amazing! The procedure was so perfect! I have had no illness, no complications. The healing was a result of my clean and healthy lifestyle which includes plenty of green drinks. Not to mention Dr. Myint is an excellent surgeon!"- N.C. / Google / Mar 17, 2021
Candidates for a neck lift
Patients hoping to undergo neck lift surgery generally battle loose, hanging skin on their necks and below their chins. Lax neck tissue is often caused by several factors, including major weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, sagging neck skin creates an older, unbecoming look, which generally can only be cosmetically fixed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you're physically healthy and at a good weight but you feel challenged by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles along your neck, then neck lift surgery may be a great option.
Neck lift surgery
Neck lift surgery is an outpatient procedure that we perform at our Las Vegas office in our on-site AAAASF-accredited operating room. The surgery is often conducted with local anesthesia and IV sedation. Incisions are generally placed behind or in front of your ears, ending at the scalp. If pockets of fat exist, Dr. Myint may use liposuction first, and once that's complete, he'll remove any hanging skin and pull the remaining tissue tight. Sutures will then be strategically placed within the natural contours of your earlobes so that they are well hidden from the naked eye. Nonsurgical treatments can also be incorporated to help your skin's texture and reduce wrinkles.
after your procedure
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these effects generally fade within around 7 – 10 days. It's important to rest and avoid strenuous activity for a couple of weeks to assist in the recovery process. As you heal, you should notice a visible improvement in the contours of your neckline and chin. In fact, it has been said that neck lift surgery can make one of the biggest impacts on a person's profile, shaving years off their appearance.
Neck Lift FAQ
How much does a neck lift cost?
We will review the cost of your neck lift during your initial consultation with Dr. Myint. As soon as he has developed your treatment plan, he will estimate prices for the facility, anesthesia, and miscellaneous fees. To help make your neck surgery affordable, Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery accepts many payment methods, plus we can tell you more about how to get low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Surgery is the only way to eliminate loose skin, especially if it droops or hangs. Although some nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can give you mild improvements, neck lift surgery can more dramatically smooth and redefine the contours of your neck. A popular, new treatment called KYBELLA® targets fat in the submental area, which causes a double chin; however, it doesn't improve excess skin.
Will I have visible scars?
Your neck lift will include an incision under the chin and two close to the ears. However, with the placement of these incisions, you won't be able to see them. Dr. Myint makes every effort during neck lift surgery to avoid visible scarring. You will also receive scar management instructions, which will help your incisions to heal flat and thin.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
During your initial consultation, you can mention that you may be considering another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant, along with a neck lift. It is common for us to combine two or more face surgeries for the best results. If you are concerned about a weak chin or undefined jawline, tell Dr. Myint so he can develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Based on your needs and goals, you might consider combining a neck lift with surgical liposuction. This can be best if you have both loose skin and stubborn fat pockets in your neck. Dr. Myint can help you choose whether a lift, lipo, or a combination of both should be included in your surgical plan.
