Neck Lift Surgery

Sculpt and smooth your neck with an overall natural and rejuvenated appearance by Dr. Newman in Fairfield County, CT.

What to Expect During the Procedure

A neck lift involves removing excess skin and tightening the remainder for a firmer, more youthful appearance in the neck.

The specific refinements made during a neck lift procedure are highly dependent on the patient's goals, but typically involve removing excess fat, trimming loose skin, and tightening the muscle tissue. To achieve this, a local or general anesthetic is first administered, and then incisions are made behind the ears and underneath the chin. The placement of these incisions provides the doctor with the ability to make the necessary refinements and makes any residual scarring inconspicuous. To achieve optimal results, a neck lift may be combined with liposuction or laser wrinkle treatment. The full scope of your treatment will be determined during your consultation with Dr. Newman.

Types of Incisions

Your neck lift will address lower facial concerns, such as sagging skin, excess fat deposits under your chin, and loose neck skin. Dr. Newman will discuss and determine which incision options are the best for your procedure.

Traditional Incisions

Typically, incisions start in your hairline, around your ear, and end in the back of your hairline. Then your tissues are repositioned, excess skin and fat removed, and muscles tightened. If further work is needed, another incision under your chin enables liposuction and muscle repair to happen.

Limited Incisions

Limited incisions are only located around the ear, however limited results are achieved. These types of incisions are ideal for patients who do not have as much sagging skin or excess fat and need more of a defined and contoured appearance.

The Recovery

Many of our patients have found that neck lift surgery has a dramatic and positive impact on their lives. After your surgery, it is advised that you stay in bed for two or three days and avoid any strenuous activity. Additionally, a compression garment should be worn for about a week to promote healing and help ensure the proper results. Within a week or two, the results of the procedure should be evident, though it can take three to six months to fully heal. It is common for bruising and swelling to occur in the first week or so, but if you follow your surgeon's instructions, the symptoms will subside quickly.

A Wealth Of Benefits

A more refined look | You only better

You can expect a healthier-looking, smoother, more refined neck after your neck lift procedure, with results lasting from five to 10 years if you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Many of our patients have found that neck lift surgery has a dramatic and positive impact on their lives. With improved self-confidence, our patients often find themselves enjoying more rewarding social lives and having more outgoing dispositions.

Testimonials

"I was off and on deciding whether I wanted this procedure for YEARS due to insecurities about myself, especially when looking at pictures of myself… So for years I looked at different surgeons, I looked at reviews on all different surgeons, watched videos of certain surgeons doing procedures, and after looking at dozens of different plastic surgeons I came across Dr. Newman and I immediately knew after one consultation that he was the one I wanted to deal with."

"I was referred to him from a family member and was very happy with my overall experience. He was thorough in explaining every part of my procedure and answering all my questions. I really liked the fact that the team was small and personal and not a large hospital so the staff was always familiar and friendly. Highly recommend to anyone interested in having a cosmetic procedure and I have already brought in friends to see Dr. Newman."

Neck Lift FAQs

You will not feel anything during your surgery because you are given a local anesthetic. Any pain or discomfort you experience post-surgery is managed with prescribed or over-the-counter medication.

It is very important to refrain from using cold compresses on your neck because it can slow blood flow to your neck, which can cause severe skin issues. Other risks include infection and bleeding. In severe cases, you can experience nerve damage, numbness and deep vein thrombosis.

Dr. Newman will discuss the price of your procedure during your consultation. Each patient receives a uniquely tailored treatment plan to meet their aesthetic objectives. Therefore, the cost will differ for each patient.
