What Is A Neck Lift?

Are you sick of wearing turtlenecks and scarves all year to hide the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Dr. Pearce performs neck lift surgery in Austin, TX to correct the look of an aging neckline. This cosmetic surgery tightens the area under your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." This lower facial surgery at Pearce Plastic Surgery can significantly improve your profile by removing loose skin and fat while incorporating a tightening method to result in a smoother, natural neckline.

How Is A Neck Lift performed?

A neck lift can be performed under general or local anesthesia. The procedure involves placing incisions around the ears and, if necessary, under the chin. Any isolated areas of fat will first be removed with liposuction. The neck muscles may then be tightened and repositioned to sharpen the neck's appearance. Sagging or hanging skin is carefully excised, and the remaining skin is tightened to achieve the desired shape and contour. Sutures are placed at the incision area beneath the chin to minimize visible scarring. A neck lift procedure can be combined with other treatments, like laser therapy or a peel, to enhance the skin's texture and create a radiant look.

Who is a good candidate for a neck lift?

Good candidates for a neck lift are individuals who desire to enhance the definition of their neckline, are within 10 – 15 pounds of their ideal body weight, are in good physical health, and have no smoking habits.

What is the recovery for a neck lift like?

Following your neck lift, a dressing will be applied to your face and neck to support the tissues. Dr. Pearce recommends having someone stay with you to help you recover at home. A drain will be present in your neck, which is usually removed after 1 – 2 days. Expect some swelling and bruising over the next few days, which will gradually diminish. To aid the healing process, Dr. Pearce advises sleeping with the head of the bed elevated for 1 – 2 weeks and avoiding twisting or turning the neck. It's essential not to use ice packs under the neck as this could affect blood flow and lead to tissue damage. Sutures are typically removed about 5 – 7 days after the procedure.

When can I return to daily activities, like work and driving, after a neck lift?

Dr. Pearce advises patients to plan for about a week of downtime before going back to work or driving. It's essential to avoid driving or using heavy machinery if you're still on prescription pain medications. After one week, most patients can return to office work, but they might still experience swelling. For those with more strenuous jobs, it's best to return to light duty after one week and continue on light duty for approximately two more weeks.

When will I see the final results from my neck lift procedure?

It will take about six months for the final results from your neck lift procedure to become fully apparent. Although improvement starts within the first few weeks, the swelling takes six months to disappear completely.

Dr Pearce and his staff have been so beyond amazing to work with! As someone who gets pretty squeamish around needles, they have made me feel so relaxed and at ease through it all. Dr Pearce and Amy were so incredible and Informative during my breast augmentation consultation. They answered my 100 questions and helped put my mind at ease. Getting surgery is one of my biggest fears And I know I’m choosing the right spot! Last of all, the front desk staff is sooo welcoming and sweet, even if I’m running a little bit late they have been so understanding! I’ll definitely be a life long patient!

I chose doctor Pearce to do my chin lipo after I did some research on YouTube. His videos popped up and I instantly felt very comfortable booking a consultation. I love the fact that he educates us on every procedure beforehand and that he is just a very down to earth guy and I just love him. I am very skeptical when it comes down to choosing a doctor but that was never an issue from start to finish. He is very understanding and he will do his very best to give you the results that you are looking for. I would definitely choose him for any other procedure I decide to get in the future.

Dr. Pearce was on call at Round Rock Medical Center at a very difficult moment for my family. My son experienced a very bad motorcycle accident on Sept. 12, 2022 and Dr. Pearce operated on him to repair the cosmetic results of severe head trauma. He has operated on my son 3 times, the last one being 2 days ago. He did miraculous work in restoring my son’s head shape and eye socket to normal. He worked for 6.5 hours in surgery this time to fix some abnormalities and my son looks great. We are so grateful to Dr. Pearce!
