Neck Lift

Neck Lift

A neck lift is a procedure designed to rejuvenate your neck area by tightening the skin, removing excess fat, and enhancing the overall contour of the jawline and neck for a more youthful and refined appearance.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Reilly offers neck lift surgery to address these issues at his practice in Shelton, CT.

How It Works

Neck lift surgery is a comprehensive approach that addresses various concerns on the neck and lower jawline. The procedure typically involves:

  • Removing Excess Skin: To eliminate sagging and create a smoother, tighter neck contour.
  • Altering Neck Muscles: Tightening the platysma muscles to address banding and provide support to the neck.
  • Liposuction: Removing excess fat to refine the neck’s shape and improve the jawline definition.
  • The specific techniques used in your neck lift will depend on your unique anatomy and desired outcomes, which Dr. Reilly will discuss with you during your consultation.

  • The Day of Surgery
    Neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to perform. You’re in the caring hands of Dr. Reilly and his experienced surgical team, who prioritize your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.

  • Am I a good candidate for a neck lift?

    Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smokers with realistic expectations and concerns about sagging skin, excess fat, or muscle banding in the neck area.

  • How long do the results last?

    While a neck lift can’t stop the aging process, the results are long-lasting. Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle can help preserve your results.

  • Will there be scars?

    There will be some scarring, but these incisions are made in discrete locations, such as under the chin or behind the ears, to minimize visibility.

  • Is the procedure painful?

    You may experience some discomfort and swelling, but this is typically manageable with medications.
