What Is A Neck Lift?
Due to the skin around the neck being incredibly delicate and prone to some of the most movement, it is one of the first areas on the body to start showing signs of aging. As the neck ages, it may show a sun-damaged appearance, develop a double-or-triple chin area, or begin to sag and lines or bands.
A neck lift, also known as a platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty, helps correct these signs of aging, including wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. With a neck lift at Radiance, you can tighten the skin of your neck and regain confidence in your appearance again.

Neck Lift Procedures Details
A neck lift procedure with Dr. Huynh is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Dr. Huynh will make a small incision just below your chin , and depending on your specific needs, he may also make an incision. Through these incisions, he will begin to tighten the neck muscles, remove excess skin, and restore a smoother, firmer jawline and neck.
Once your results match the goals that you and Dr. Huynh discussed during your consultation, he closes the incision, dresses them, and you’ll be sent to recovery and await your release to go home.
Who Are the Best Candidates For A Neck Lift?
If you are considering undergoing a neck lift procedure, it is important that you’re both physically and mentally healthy. Having a positive self-image will ensure that your expectations surrounding a neck lift procedure are realistic. If you’re unsure about what to expect or what exactly a neck lift can accomplish for you, we will gladly help you through each step and answer any questions that you might have along the way.
Before your neck lift, it’s also important that you are in good health. During your consultation with Dr. Huynh discuss any medications that you are currently taking and if you have any current health concerns. Always speak with your primary care physician before pursuing elective surgery so that they can run the necessary tests and give you a clean bill of health.
The best candidates also ask lots of questions in order to get informed and prepared for their procedure. The more informed you are, the more comfortable and confident you’ll feel when the day of your surgery arrives.
Stop smoking. The chemicals in cigarettes are detrimental and can increase the risks associated with surgery. Plan to quit smoking 6 weeks before your procedure and for 6 weeks after.
Combining a Neck Lift With a Facelift
Many patients choose to include a neck lift with their facelift procedure. A facelift helps to lift and tighten the skin on the face into a more youthful position, smoothing out wrinkles, sagging skin, and laxity. Since the face and the neck are a package deal, a neck lift helps to rejuvenate the appearance from the ears down.
Neck Lift Recovery
Recovery from a neck lift is minimal. There will be some discomfort which can be managed with pain medication if necessary. Most patients are able to return to work after 7-10 days of rest. Be sure to follow all of Dr. Huynh’s aftercare instructions surrounding your incisions to ensure that scarring remains minimal. Most patients are able to resume normal activities after about four to six weeks.
