Introduction to Neck Lift Surgery

Dr. Zuckerman’s neck lift surgery can eliminate the effects of aging, sun exposure, and weight gain or loss resulting excess skin and fat in the neck. This plastic surgery procedure will give you a smoother, more youthful aesthetic. A neck lift can be performed as part of face lift surgery or as a standalone procedure.

Am I A Candidate For Neck Lift Surgery?



With Dr. Zuckerman, neck lift surgery can eliminate excess skin and fat in the neck and give you a smoother, more youthful aesthetic. As we get older, the effects of aging, sun exposure, and recent weight loss can result in the loss of elasticity in the skin of the neck, causing it to take on a wrinkled, sagging appearance. Dr. Zuckerman can correct drooping neck skin with results that look natural and can last for years to come. He has been specialty-trained and is highly experienced with plastic surgery procedures involving the head, face, and neck. Dr. Zuckerman and his staff’s goal is to provide you with safe and effective care, with natural-looking results that do not give away the fact that you’ve had plastic surgery. Neck Lift surgery is closely related to Face Lift Surgery, and Dr. Zuckerman can discuss with you in a consultation which procedure would suit you best. For patients with milder issues, you can also discuss possible non-surgical injectable treatments with Dr. Zuckerman at your initial consultation.

Neck Lift Surgery in Detail

Dr. Zuckerman’s neck lift surgery can help improve the appearance of patients with loose bands of skin and fat in the neck area. Patients who have this type of aesthetic enhancement surgery typically still have some elasticity of the neck skin.

The surgery typically involves incisions made behind the ears and under the chin. Excess skin is removed and the remainder is tightened for a smoother appearance. Underlying neck muscles may also be tightened during a neck lift. The entire procedure typically lasts about three hours or less and can be completed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.

Neck lift surgery can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s technologically advanced operating room located inside his office in midtown Manhattan. Certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), this operatory has been recognized as achieving the highest standards of care.

Neck Lift Surgery Recovery



Patients may experience some pain and discomfort in the days following surgery; however, this can be controlled with medication. Some degree of swelling, numbness, and bruising can also be expected for a few days after the procedure. A small drain and compression garment will likely be provided to you in order to reduce swelling and stabilize the neck. Patients can typically resume normal daily activities after one to two weeks.
