Westchester Neck Lift Surgery by Dr. Kim

The Neck Lift Procedure

Improve the Appearance of Your Neckline

Get rid of sagging, wrinkled skin on and around the neck with a neck lift, a highly popular surgical procedure that can remove fat as well as smooth and tighten the skin and muscles on the neck. This procedure can also get rid of a double chin to restore a more youthful appearance.

When considering neck rejuvenation, it is important to determine the source of the aged appearance. Excess skin and fat collection under the chin leading to loss of the angle below the chin, fat distribution across the neck making the neck and face look like one structure, and the bands of muscles tethering in front of the neck may all be contributing factors. Each of these issues can be addressed separately or through a combination of procedures.

Since rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure, it is important that you find a plastic surgeon with a high level of expertise whom you can really trust.

Lift sagging skin with a Neck Lift

At Bellava MedAesthetics & Plastic Surgery Center in Bedford Hills, NY, board-certified plastic surgeon Chang Soon Kim, MD, is an expert in all aspects of neck lift surgery. He has performed thousands of these surgeries.

A neck lift procedure involves making small incisions directly below the chin – and in some cases below the ears as well. The neck lift often involves both a cervicoplasty to remove excess skin and a platymasty to remove or alter muscles. Liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat. The entire procedure usually takes about 1 ½ -3 hours. In some cases, Sciton Laser Lipo (a laser liposuction process most comparable with SlimLipo™) with laser skin tightening can also be used to restore the neck.

Neck Lift Q&A


What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is a procedure that lifts and rejuvenates a sagging and/or full neck jaw line.


Who is a good candidate for a neck lift?
The best candidate for a neck lift is a healthy man or woman who is unhappy about unwanted sagging of the neck and/or jaw line.


What type of anesthesia is used for a neck lift?
It depends on what kind of neck lift procedure you undergo. Most surgical neck lift procedures require general anesthesia. However some surgical neck lifts are accomplished under local anesthesia and a neck procedure using Sciton Laser Lipo laser liposuction (which is comparable to SlimLipo™) can be done under local.


How long does a neck lift take to perform?
A neck lift can take between 1.5 to 3 hours to complete depending on what approach is being used and how much work is being done.


Can I undergo more than one breast lift procedure?
Yes. While a breast lift provides an effective lifting and firming of the breasts, they may sag again over time. At that time you may choose to have another breast lift.


Are there scars after a necklift?
Though incisions are made that leave scars, they tend to be well concealed, as they are mainly located behind the ear and sometimes beneath the chin.


Is the necklift a painful procedure?
No since patient is under local or general anesthesia. However, patients may experience some discomfort after a neck lift, due to swelling and bruising, which can be managed with prescription or over-the-counter medication.


When are the stitches removed after a neck lift?
The stitches are removed within 4-7 days after the neck lift.


What is recovery from a neck lift like?
Most patients will experience 1-2 weeks of some degree of bruising and swelling. An elastic, compressive bandage is worn after the procedure for a week or more.


When will I be able to return to work after a neck lift?
Most patients are able to return to work within 5-10 days after a neck lift and sometimes sooner.


When can I exercise after a neck lift?
Aerobic activity may be resumed within 10-14 days after the neck lift and more strenuous activity (resistance workouts) within 3-4 weeks.
