Neck Lift for Men

A Neck Lift works to reposition both the underlying supportive tissues of the neck, to tighten the skin around the neck and improve structural definition for a handsome, younger looking appearance.*

What causes male neck aging?

A combination of loose skin, muscle, and fat causes a man’s neck to age. Many men are concerned by this “turkey neck” effect that occurs when fat deposits gather along hanging skin. Neck lift surgery offers more definition and an improved neck contour.

Who Can Benefit from a Neck Lift?

Men who are in good physical health and would like to improve the loss of definition from their jawline to their neck are excellent candidates for this surgery.

How Does a Neck Lift Procedure Work?

Dr. Beaty will start by making an incision behind the natural curve of the ear. He will reposition and adjust underlying fat and muscle before re-draping, lifting, and securing the skin in a higher position.

Neck lifts are usually paired with submental jowl liposuction (SMJ) to target the fatty deposits in the neck area. If SMJ is necessary, Dr. Beaty will make a small incision under the chin in order to access and extract the fat. An SMJ procedure is an excellent solution for a more sculpted, defined male neck.

What Can Be Expected from the Neck Lift Recovery Process

Complete recovery typically takes several weeks, however, most of the bruising and swelling will diminish within one week. All sutures will be removed during your one week follow up appointment.

Since a tight face is common during the healing process, a diet of soft foods is highly recommended. Patients may resume normal activities two weeks following the procedure. While discomfort will occur, severe pain is not common. For a more comfortable recovery healing process, medications will be prescribed by Dr. Beaty.*

Neck Lift Post Surgery Care

For several days following the neck lift, most men will need a facial garment for support. Bulky facial dressings are not used by Dr. Beaty. Specific care for neck skin and incisions vary depending on your individual procedure. Dr. Beaty will review this information with you on the first day after the surgery.

Are there Non-Surgical Lifting Options?

Until recently, there have been a limited amount of non-surgical neck lifting techniques. An alternative to a neck lift is Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a micro-focused ultrasound technology offered by Beaty Facial Plastic Surgery to deliver a drastic clinical improvement in facial and brow contour. This can be an effective, non-invasive alternative to surgery for some male patients.
