Neck Lift

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin and muscles of the neck and removes excess fat to create a more youthful and defined neckline.

Pre and Post Operative Instructions

A neck lift is an excellent procedure for patients with sagging and wrinkles around the neck and chin area. This procedure can be customized to address your specific concerns, like sagging jowls, a double chin, or excess fat under the chin. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is best for you.


Correct structural deformities to improve breathing


Adjust asymmetries from an initial rhinoplasty


Strengthen a nose that has become weakened from over-correction


Improve the appearance of the nose


Before the surgery

Neck lift surgeries can differ slightly depending on the needs and goals of the individual patient. During your consultation, your surgeon will work with you to create a comprehensive surgical plan to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

Preoperative preparation may include
Stop smoking
Fill prescriptions
Stop taking medications and supplements that exacerbate bleeding
Plan time away from work, childcare, and pet care for recovery.
Find a family member or friend to bring you home and assist you after surgery.

During the surgery

Incisions are made under the ear lobe and behind the ear to eliminate fat and lower the scalp and hairline, effectively removing extra fat, skin, and wrinkles. To decrease visible scarring, Barrett surgeons utilize detailed suturing methods and extensive scar management protocols. 

Surgery duration
4-6 hours

After the surgery

After surgery, patients commonly experience some swelling, numbness, bruising, and a feeling of tightness or tension in the face and neck. These symptoms may last 2-4 weeks, with full facial sensations typically returning to normal within a few months. Most patients feel comfortable in public after ten days, and most return to work after 2-3 weeks. 

The Barrett team will provide comprehensive instructions on caring for your nose as it heals to ensure an optimal outcome and minimize scarring. Your surgeon will see you personally in our office throughout your recovery to track your progress and ensure you are healing correctly.
