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.

After a major weight loss and a few uncomfortable consultations, I decided to look outside the San Antonio area to have a tummy tuck and an arm lift. Dr Pearce was my first consultant after expanding my search. When I walked in his office, I was greeted with the biggest smiles. After meeting Dr Pearce, I knew I found my surgeon!! I’m a year post op and feel amazing! Dr Pearce is a perfectionist!! I’ve recommended him to a couple people!

My appointment was awesome !
I went to Dr. Pearce for a breast augmentation. He is transparent, kind, and funny. Him and his crew made me feel comfortable and welcome considering this was my first time having a procedure like this done. My surgery went smooth and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery.

Neck Lift FAQs
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.
