A neck lift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline. It may be performed in combination with other cosmetic procedures, such as facial fat transfer or eyelid surgery. The purpose of a neck lift in North Scottsdale is to restore a more youthful appearance to the neck and lower face.

Am I a good candidate for a neck lift?

The neck and jawline are among the first areas to show the signs of aging. You may be a good candidate for a neck lift in Cave Creek if you are in good general health and have:

  • Skin relaxation and excess fat in the lower face creating jowls
  • Excess fat deposits under the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Vertical muscle banding in the neck that creates abnormal contours

What is recovery like after a neck lift?

Recovery after a neck lift will depend on the patient and the extent of surgery. In most cases, you should be able to return to work and daily activities within two weeks after the procedure. You can expect some bruising and swelling, which typically subsides after the first week, and a feeling of tightness in the neck, which may continue for several weeks.

What is the best age to have a neck lift?

A neck lift can be performed at almost any age. Most people who undergo this surgery are between the ages of 30 and 70.

When will my stitches be removed?

If your incisions are closed with sutures, they will be removed within seven to 10 days after surgery.

When will I see the result after a neck lift?

Results should be visible within one to two weeks after your North Scottsdale neck lift surgery. Final results will appear when post-surgical swelling subsides completely.

How long will my neck lift results last?

Neck lift results are long-lasting. However, the aging process continues, and with it, loose skin and signs of aging may develop in the neck. Significant weight gain could affect your results, causing neck fullness and sagging.
