About Neck Lifts
A saggy neck can be the result of several different factors, but it doesn’t have to be accepted once a patient decides to have neck lift surgery. This highly transformative surgery can take a patient from a “turkey neck” to the sleek and slimmer profile he or she desires. Houston, TX double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, performs this surgery for patients with extraneous skin in the neck area. In the process, Dr. Brissett can address lines and wrinkles in this region, as well. A neck lift, on its own, can produce powerful results, but these results can be fully maximized with neck liposuction to remove fat or a facelift surgery.

What to Expect
Neck lift surgery is outpatient and performed at an accredited surgical facility. The patient will be under general anesthesia during the procedure. The plastic surgeon will start off by making an incision under the chin or in front of or behind the patient’s ears. When there’s abundant fat in the region, liposuction will be the first step of the surgery to remove this excess fat. The underlying neck muscles will then be pulled tight. Then, the skin will be trimmed and the remaining skin will be re-draped for a tighter, smoother appearance. Stitches, or sutures, are placed deep in the neck wall. The surgeon may also place a drain in the surgical site to control bleeding. The entire surgery typically lasts 2 hours.
Following a neck lift surgery, a patient commonly experiences some amount of bruising and swelling in the neck area. It’s also common for patients to have a sensation of tightness and pulling, which is a result of the neck adjusting into the new position. Typically, patients are able to return to their normal routine, such as work, in around 7 – 10 days. After a few months, a patient should be able to see the full effects of the surgery with a tighter, smoother, more contoured neck. There will be very minimal scarring since the incisions were placed in discreet places.
