What Is Neck Lift Surgery?
Neck lift surgery, or simply a neck lift, is a procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the neck and jawline by addressing sagging skin, muscle laxity, neck banding, and excess fat. This surgery aims to provide a smoother, more toned, and youthful appearance to the neck area.
The primary areas addressed in a neck lift include:
- The neck
- Lower face
Technique and Process
The procedure begins with small incisions made strategically around the ear and potentially under the chin, allowing the surgeon access to the underlying tissues. Dr. Stepanyan then tightens the muscles and removes or repositions excess fat and skin to achieve a more refined neck contour. The incisions are closed with sutures, and the area is bandaged to aid in the healing process.
What to Expect
Following a neck lift, patients can expect a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance in the neck and jawline area. It’s a procedure aimed at individuals who wish to address age or weight loss-related changes in the neck region, providing a more aesthetically pleasing and youthful appearance.
Why Might a Patient Consider Neck Lift Surgery?
Patients opt for neck lift surgery for a variety of reasons, primarily stemming from aesthetic concerns, although functional benefits are also achievable.
Many choose a neck lift to address the signs of aging or the aftermath of significant weight loss, which often manifests as sagging skin, muscle laxity, or excess fat in the neck and jawline area. The procedure helps to achieve a smoother, more toned, and youthful appearance of the neck, enhancing the overall profile and restoring a more defined jawline.
On a functional level, excess skin and fat in the neck area can sometimes cause discomfort or interfere with natural movement. By removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles, a neck lift can alleviate such issues, providing not only an enhanced appearance but also improving comfort and mobility.

A neck lift can significantly improve the appearance of a sagging neck, loose skin, or excess fat in the neck and jawline area, resulting in a more youthful and refined contour.
While a neck lift provides long-lasting results, it does not stop the aging process. Over time, natural aging and gravity may cause the skin to sag again.
A neck lift primarily addresses sagging skin, muscle laxity, and excess fat in the neck and jawline area, while a facelift targets the mid to lower face, improving the appearance of jowls, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
Neck lift surgery is typically considered a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance. However, if there are functional issues, like restricted movement due to excess skin, some insurance providers might offer coverage.
