Neck Lift New Jersey

Lift and Restore: Discover Your Neck Lift Options in New Jersey

As we age, the delicate skin around the neck can tend to lose elasticity and collagen and start to sag. If you have concerns about your “turkey neck” and/or “double chin” then a neck lift may be a great option for you. 

Occasionally, we see patients who desire only treatment of the neck or area beneath the chin. For those with good skin elasticity and excess fatty deposits, a neck lift or liposuction under the chin alone may provide a wonderful result.

What is a Neck Lift (Cervicoplasty)?

If loose or excessive skin is noted, a lower face and neck lift may be necessary to produce the most aesthetically pleasing results. Neck lifts are often performed in combination with a facelift or other procedures to restore facial appearance to a more youthful, rested state while achieving the most aesthetically pleasing result. We would be happy to discuss the differences in these techniques with you and show you how we are able to help you achieve your goals at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey.

Who is a Candidate for a Neck lift?

Candidates for a neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, typically include individuals who are concerned about sagging skin, excess fat, or muscle banding in the neck region. Ideal candidates generally:

  • Are in good overall health and free from medical conditions that could hinder healing or increase surgical risks.
  • Have loose, sagging skin or excess fat deposits beneath the chin and neck.
  • Exhibit visible vertical bands or “turkey neck” due to relaxed or separated neck muscles.
  • Have maintained a stable weight and are not planning significant weight changes.
  • Are non-smokers, as smoking can complicate both the procedure and the healing process.
  • Have realistic expectations about the surgery’s outcome.
  • Are looking to address signs of aging that cannot be remedied with non-surgical treatments.

What are the benefits of undergoing a Neck Lift in New Jersey?

Undergoing a neck lift with Dr. Kevin Nini of New Jersey offers a wide variety of benefits. The neck lift procedure tightens the skin and the underlying muscles, resulting in a smoother, more defined contour of the neck and jawline. It also effectively removes sagging or “crepey” skin, presenting a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. Moreover, a neck lift addresses localized fat deposits, particularly under the chin or surrounding the neck area, refining the neck’s overall shape. 

One of the significant transformations post-surgery is the correction or reduction of muscle banding in the neck, which often poses cosmetic concerns. Beyond the immediate visual improvements, patients experience a substantial boost in self-confidence. And while it’s essential to understand that no surgical intervention can halt the aging process, the results of a neck lift are enduring, often lasting for several years.

Commonly Asked Neck Lift Questions

While both procedures can be complementary, a neck lift specifically targets the neck and jawline, while a facelift focuses on the mid to lower face.

Most patients can return to regular activities within two weeks, though strenuous activities should be avoided for about 4-6 weeks.

As with any surgery, there are potential risks, including infection, anesthesia complications, poor wound healing, and nerve injury. It’s essential to discuss these with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
