A neck lift procedure is a cosmetic surgery designed to improve the visible aging that can be common with neck skin and increasing fatty deposits in the area. An undesirable or aged neck appearance may occur and, despite regular exercise and a healthy diet, it may persist. Because of this change in the neck area as one ages, it is not uncommon for individuals to result in neck liposuction or a surgical improvement to the neck area to remove sagging skin and restore the neck to a more youthful look.
Make a Youthful Transformation
A neck lift procedure is designed to improve visible aging of the neck by removing excess fat and tightening sagging skin that can create unsightly folds or creases in areas under your chin, around your ears, or along your jawline.
A neck lift is a far less involved variation of a facelift. If you are interested in addressing the loose skin, unchanging fat deposits, loss of muscle tone, and fallen or displaced fat that can cause a “double chin,” you may want a neck lift. This procedure can be done in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures, including a full facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift.
Lose Your Double Chin
Neck lifts are an excellent choice for patients who would like a longer-lasting effect than most non-surgical procedures can provide. The ideal patient is physically healthy, a non-smoker, and informed about all aspects of the procedure, recovery, and possible outcomes. The vast majority of neck lift patients are between 40 and 60 years old. If you are considering getting a neck lift, It is important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. It is also vital to notify Washington DC neck lift experts, Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino, if you have high blood pressure, blood-clotting issues, or tend to form excessive scars.
"Before deciding on where to do my procedure, I looked at several doctors. A friend told me Dr. Feledy did the best neck lifts in Washington DC. It was true, he was caring, and the procedure made me look so much better.”
If you have thought about getting a neck lift, please come in for a consultation with Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino in our Washington DC area office, located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, or in our Northern, Virginia office location in Stafford. Your initial consultation should take approximately an hour. In the course of your consultation, the doctor will:
The staff at Belmont Plastic Surgery will make sure that any questions you have about insurance and financing are answered, so you have a good understanding of your options. You will be provided with neck lift before and after photos of their patients so you can look at earlier work and see for yourself what to expect if they perform a neck lift surgery. The aim of your consultation is for you and Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino to agree on the approach and details of your surgery in order to obtain the neck lift results that you want. If you need assistance with financing your procedure, this can also be addressed during your visit.
This procedure will be performed with a sedative or general anesthetic to ensure comfort. An incision will be made in front of the ear lobe that will continue around the ear into the hairline. The incisions are designed to be concealed within the natural folds of the face. The fat underneath the skin is sculpted and repositioned, and muscles underneath are adjusted for optimal contour. The skin is redraped over the treated area and any excess skin is removed. Incisions are closed with sutures. Depending on the complexity of the procedure, it may take a few hours, but you will go home the same day.
The Path to Great Results
Directly following the neck lift surgery, a bandage will be placed over the treated area to minimize any swelling or bruising. It is not unusual for a tube to be added as needed to drain any excess fluids during the recovery. It may take a few months for swelling to disappear completely and up to six months for the neck lift incision lines to fade. Following the healing process, the incision lines are almost completely camouflaged by the natural lines of the ear, jaw, and hair. The results should be long-lasting, particularly when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Avoiding excess sun exposure can help maintain long-term results as well.
A Clean, Youthful Jawline
The surgical results will depend on the appearance you are trying to achieve combined with what is physically possible. This will be established prior to the surgery when you meet with Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino. It will not stop the process of aging, of course, but it can improve your overall look. Incisions are strategically placed so that any scarring that may occur will not normally be visible. The neck lift results should last for years or even a lifetime in most cases with proper care and maintenance of the skin. This can include consistent use of sunblock and regular skincare routines as well as appropriate nutritional habits. The longevity of these results is based on various factors, including genetics, your age when you had your surgery, general health, and whether you have had any additional cosmetic procedures performed at any time during your life.

"The most important part of a successful neck lift is establishing exactly what the patient wants, isolating any physical aspects the patient needs to know and consider before the procedure and then performing the surgery with a detailed plan. It is very important to me that my patients have their expectations met and get end result that sometimes requires thorough explanations and strong communication.”
— Dr. Jules Feledy

One of patients’ most significant concerns about getting a neck lift is whether or not it will hurt. The good news: the pain is minimal and, with local anesthesia given during surgery, you won’t feel much during and after your surgery, aside from slight soreness in your neck and some swelling that can last up to two weeks following your procedure.
In doing a neck lift surgery, there are risks and elements a patient needs to be aware of. Every surgical procedure has factors to consider. These potential risks will be discussed in-depth during your consultation with Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino.
There are several procedures that can offer temporary skin lifting such as thread lifts or moderate skin tightening such as lasers or microneedling/RF devices but there currently does not exist a single procedure that combines the skin and muscle tightening like a neck lift.
