Neck Lift Basics

The Neck Lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address the visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline. This comprehensive intervention targets excess skin, tightens underlying muscles, and removes or redistributes accumulated fat. The result is a smoother, more defined neck contour and a revitalized overall appearance.

Types of Neck Lifts

Changes Rapid Neck Lift

The Changes Rapid Neck Lift creates a more attractively contoured neck and jawline by lifting and repositioning tissues that have started to sag or droop while also tightening the underlying musculature. This creates a generally rejuvenated appearance that can take years off of your look by addressing some of the most common and readily visible aspects of the natural facial aging process.

Changes Weekend Neck Lift

Our Changes Weekend Neck Lift is a cutting-edge procedure designed to redefine your neck contours with minimal downtime. By combining liposuction and EmbraceRF technology, we target stubborn fat deposits and tighten loose skin for a sleek, sculpted appearance. Additionally, our innovative approach addresses platysmal banding through a discreet incision under the chin, ensuring comprehensive results.

Changes Scarless Neck Lift

The Changes Scarless Neck Lift is an advanced alternative to the traditional Changes Rapid Neck Lift procedure. By utilizing the power of InMode's RFAL (radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis) system, the Changes Scarless Neck Lift is able to deliver impressive outcomes with local anesthesia, a significantly minimized recovery time, and little to no scarring due to the highly advanced and non-invasive nature of the procedure.

Considering a Neck Lift?

Many patients choose a neck lift to improve:

  • Sagging or loose skin in the neck area
  • Vertical banding or muscle laxity (turkey neck)
  • Excess fat deposits or a poorly defined jawline
  • Overall dissatisfaction with the appearance of the neck
  • Embarrassment about the appearance of the neck

The Neck Lift Procedure: What to Expect

  • Consultation: A detailed discussion with your surgeon about your concerns, goals, and medical history is the first step. This is an opportunity to ask questions and understand the procedure fully.
  • Preparation: Before the surgery, your surgeon will provide pre-operative instructions. This may include adjustments to medications, lifestyle recommendations, and a temporary cessation of specific substances like nicotine products (vaping, cigarettes, nicotine gum/patch, etc).
  • Anesthesia: The Neck Lift is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, ensuring a painless and comfortable experience during the procedure.
  • Incisions: Incisions are strategically made, often concealed within the natural contours of the ear and behind the earlobe. In some cases, a small incision may be made under the chin.
  • Muscle Tightening: The surgeon skillfully tightens the underlying muscles, addressing muscle laxity and enhancing the neck's structural support.
  • Fat Removal or Redistribution: Excess fat is either removed through liposuction or strategically redistributed to create a harmonious neck contour.
  • Skin Re-Draping: The remaining skin is meticulously draped back onto the neck, and excess skin is trimmed to create a smoother, scarless, and more youthful appearance.
  • Closure: The incisions are carefully closed with sutures, and any drainage tubes, if used, are placed.
