As we age, the skin around the neck becomes looser and loses elasticity. At the same time, facial fat pads can droop and create the appearance of jowls. A neck lift removes unwanted skin and fat to tighten and smooth your neck and jawline. The results will leave you looking slimmer and more youthful.
What is a Neck Lift?
When the skin under the chin and around the jawline loses elasticity, the sagging that results can make you feel older. Dr. Brenman uses a minimal incision neck lift to give you the results you want with less recovery time and smaller incisions. Neck lift surgery works well alone or with other procedures, and it can provide dramatic but natural-looking results.
How Does a Neck Lift Surgery Work?
Dr. Brenman will use the minimal incision neck lift technique to remove loose skin and fat from around the neck, chin, and jowls. He will also lift and tighten the skin and underlying muscles, restoring more youthful facial contours. The incisions are made behind the ears and sometimes under the chin, making them nearly invisible.
How Long Does a Neck Lift Last?
Neck lift surgery cannot stop the effects of aging and gravity, but it can remove years of these effects with a single procedure. The results of a neck lift will last for at least ten to fifteen years, especially with good skin care. Years into the future, you will look better than you would have looked without a neck lift.
How Much is a Neck Lift Surgery?
Neck lift prices vary based on your surgeon’s location, skill, and experience. The cost will usually not include anesthesia, medications, or other fees and expenses. The national average cost is $5776.

Who Makes a Good Candidate for Neck Lift Surgery?
Good candidates for a neck lift have loose skin and fat around the neck area and want to have it removed. A neck lift makes an excellent option for those who have lost elasticity in their neck area and will not see good results with just fat removal.
What is Recovery Like From a Neck Lift?
You will usually have a bandage to wear for about a week following surgery. Most people can go back to work after a week. You can resume your typical exercise routine after four to six weeks or when Dr. Brenman approves it.
Should I Get a Neck Lift or a Facelift?
If you have noticeable sagging around your mid to lower face, you may wonder whether you need a facelift or a neck lift. The answer depends on the results you want to see. A facelift will address lines and wrinkles as well as loose facial skin. A neck lift works on the jowls and neck. Many people who have a facelift combine it with a neck lift.
