How Does a Neck Lift Work?A neck lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck area to tighten and contour the neck and jawline. Dr. Brenman performs a minimal incision neck lift with small incisions behind the ears to access the muscles and tissues in the neck area. He will then remove or redistribute fat, tighten the muscles, and trim excess skin to achieve the desired results. View More Patient Results *Individual results may vary
Neck Lift Results and BenefitsYou may see immediate benefits from your neck lift. Final results are visible in three to six months as swelling subsides. A neck lift typically lasts several years, though the area will continue to age, and this can lead to more drooping. You can expect your neck lift results to last a decade or more. The primary goal of a neck lift is to improve the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles in the neck and jawline. After the procedure, patients can expect to see smoother, more youthful-looking skin and a more defined jawline. A neck lift can reduce the appearance of jowls and a double chin, improving the facial profile.
What to Expect After a Neck LiftFull recovery from a neck lift typically takes several weeks. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days and weeks following the surgery. Dr. Brenman will give you aftercare instructions for managing any discomfort and minimizing swelling. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks. You may need to wait four to six weeks to resume strenuous exercise, depending on Dr. Brenman’s recommendations. With Dr. Brenman’s minimal incisions neck lift technique, you’ll be able to enjoy your neck lift results without worrying about scarring. The incisions are concealed behind the ears or sometimes under the chin and are inconspicuous once they heal.
