Neck Lift Boston
Do you have the dreaded turkey neck? Do you notice just a bit more sagging under your chin than you’d like to admit? Are you unhappy with how you look on Zoom, Facetime, Skype, or in video conferences? A neck lift is a popular and very easy way to treat excess and saggy skin and neck tissue. The difference between a neck lift and face lift is subtle. The neck lift treats fullness and sagging skin of only the neck while a face lift treats the neck, jowls, and lower face. Many patients also have some fullness in the neck which we can liposuction during a neck lift or facelift to improve the contour of the neck as best as possible.
What is Neck Lift Surgery?
During a neck lift a well-hidden incision is made along the bottom of the ear and up into the hairline behind the ear. This is shorter than the incision a facelift requires and camouflages beautifully into the natural crease of the ear and head. The ideal candidate has some fullness or excess skin in the neck but is otherwise happy with their face. In most cases, a neck lift is performed in the operating room using a monitored sedation (“MAC”) or general anesthesia. However, in some cases we can perform the procedure in one of our office procedure rooms using local anesthesia. The surgery typically lasts 1 ½ -2 hours depending on the amount of work required and the complexity of the case. Sometimes a chin implant is a good way to further enhance the results. Patients are free to return home following surgery with the help of an escort.
Neck Lift Before & After
What is Recovery Like?
Recovery from a neck lift is relatively easy. Most patients label the discomfort as less than a “5” for the first week following surgery. It is common to experience some bruising and swelling around the neck and lower face (and maybe even the chest) for one week, and we strongly encourage rest and relaxation. Sutures (stitches) are removed approximately eight days after the procedure. By this appointment patients are doing terrifically! Most have some mild redness at the incision, but are otherwise looking and feeling good. Most patients feel well enough to resume work and daily activities about 10-14 days following surgery. If you have va less physically demanding job, you may be able to return to work sooner. Pain medication is given to patients, although many don’t need it after the 3rd or 4th day following surgery. Risks of this procedure include: bruising, swelling, temporary muscle or nerve weakness, bleeding, patches of numbness, infection, or need for future revision. In almost all cases, any problems are easily treated during a quick office visit. Neck lift results typically last 7-10 years, although this varies from patient to patient.You will always benefit from the refreshed look and feel of a neck lift!

Dr. Spiegel and his staff explained the procedure clearly; they were friendly, supportive, and reassuring. The surgery was done at a top-rated hospital near my home. The expense and short-term discomfort were absolutely worth it. The loose skin on my neck has been tightened, and I look like myself again. My confidence and my spirits have been given a boost. Very glad I decided to have the work done!
