Neck Lift

If you have loose skin around the neck area and especially under the chin and jaw, a neck lift may work for you to restore a more youthful and firmer appearance.

About Neck Lifts

For some individuals, the neck begins to show age faster than the rest of the face, so for some, a neck lift procedure can drastically improve the youthfulness of the entire face. A neck lift, also known as a platysmaplasty or submental platysmaplasty, is a surgery designed to reduce the loose look of sagging skin in the neck area and under the jawline. Dr. Schalit also performs platysmaplasty with facelift procedures.

The time and extent of the neck lift procedure will vary depending on the patient. Dr. Schalit performs neck lifts and facelift surgeries, but other surgeries can be combined with the procedure. During the platysmaplasty procedure, your surgeon will make an incision under your chin. This will give him access to your neck muscles, which he will manipulate from there and hold into position with sutures.

Sutures are generally removed within one week. Swelling and some bruising may occur; they should subside within a few weeks. Our doctors will prescribe ice compresses to reduce swelling and regain mobility.

You can proceed with your normal daily activities within 1-2 weeks and engage in normal exercise routines about 3-4 weeks after surgery. A final evaluation may occur within several months from the initial surgical procedure.*

Typical results of a submental platysmaplasty procedure include a smoother and much more defined neckline. Patients will see an improvement in neck banding and submental fullness.

Some patients who complain of having neck “banding” or a “turkey waddle” can benefit from this procedure. Candidates should be in overall good health and not smoke or quit at least two weeks before the procedure.
