Overview

Commonly referred to as “turkey neck,” a saggy neck can be improved by a neck lift which removes excessive fat and tightens the muscles in the neck to achieve a more streamlined look. Loose skin around the neck can be a result of several factors including weight loss, aging, or gravity. Regardless of the cause, Denver plastic surgeon, Dr. Manish Shah, is able to perform neck lift surgery effectively improve a wide variety of cases. In some cases, Dr. Shah will pair a neck lift with liposuction to augment the benefits of the surgery. The results can be quite dramatic since the profile is greatly altered, resulting in a leaner, more youthful appearance with reduced lines and wrinkles.

Surgical Technique

A neck lift removes hanging skin and reshapes the neck. During the procedure, an incision is placed under the chin and/or behind or in front of the ears. If fat deposits are present and need to be removed, liposuction will be used during the surgery and performed first. The final steps of treatment will be to trim away excess skin, pull the remaining underlying tissue and muscle tight, and suture the incision. 

I was really apprehensive about having a neck lift... I hated the way my neck looked, and was scared to death of surgery. But, Dr. Shah and his wonderful staff offered the assurance I needed to go forward. They were professional, and incredibly kind. They were simply amazing, and the results were more than I ever hoped for. The cost was affordable, and they were able to change something about myself that I have always hated. I can’t recommend them enough. Each member of the staff is down to earth and will offer kindness and support. Dr. Shah will deliver the results that you dream of!

Happy Patient - I have been a long time patient of Dr. Shah. Dr. Shah performed a revision on a neck lift that a previous plastic surgeon had performed with poor results. Dr. Shah corrected the neck lift with great results. I am prone to keloid scaring. Dr. Shah stands behind his works and provided solutions to prevent the keloid from forming. I'm very pleased! I just recently had the VaserLipo performed on my facial cheeks and jaw line. Dr. Shah's Clinical Lead, Rebecca Adkisson performed the procedure. Rebecca was very professional and detailed at her work and made the process calming. I was wowed at the results and would highly recommend!

During/After Surgery

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited surgical clinic. The duration of the surgery usually takes around 2 hours, although it may vary depending on the case. Bruising and swelling will be visible after the surgery, but this will subside in the few short days following the procedure. Initially, patients will feel tightness and numbness. Once the neck adjusts to its new position, patients will notice a more relaxed feeling and a beautiful surgical result. It can take up to 6 months for the final results to appear.

About Us
Alternative to Lift?

Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it is loose enough to hang and droop. Therefore, a neck lift is the only solution when it comes to redefining an individual’s neck to create a strong contour. While there are some very good skin tightening laser treatments on the market today, surgery is still the best option.

Hidden Scars?

There is minimal scarring with this procedure. Since the incision is placed under the chin and near the ears, the scarring is usually hidden. A skilled facial surgeon will take great effort to minimize scarring as much as possible.

Ideal Age?

This depends on the situation and the amount of loose and sagging skin that is present. Some weight loss patients are young and may require a neck lift at a young age (for example, those between 20-30). For older patients who are combatting loose skin due to aging, the most common age is between 50-70.

Combination Surgery?

During the initial consultation, it may be brought up that in addition to a neck lift, the patient may also benefit from another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the patient’s desired contours and aesthetic goals.
