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.

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.
