About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you tired of wearing turtlenecks and scarves all year round to cover the loose, flabby skin on your neck? Raleigh, NC plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle provides neck lift surgery to eliminate the appearance of an aging neck. This cosmetic surgery reshapes and tightens the section on the underside of your chin and the entire neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By surgically excising the excess skin and fat while using a tightening method to result in a softer neckline, neck lift surgery at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center can provide dramatic enhancements to the lower section of your face.
Individuals considering neck lift surgery generally deal with visibly sagging skin on the neck. Hanging neck skin is often caused by a range of factors including aging and significant weight loss. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin produces an older and unbecoming look, which in most cases can only be cosmetically fixed with skin removal and tightening. If you are physically healthy and at a good weight but you feel embarrassed by lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on the neck, a neck lift cosmetic surgery may be a recommended option.
"A+ Blepharoplasty with Dr. Glenn Lyle of RPSC! - Finally, my visual field has been restored after constantly struggling with sagging- hooded eyelids that were impacting my daily life such as: working on the computer with my head tilted backwards to see the screen, forehead fatigue causing aching, my eyelashes pushing down and finally the feeling that I had a "frame of dimness" is completely gone!

"Great Experience - I am very happy with my experience with Dr Lyle. I wanted my breast implants out and didn't know what else I should do to look somewhat normal afterwards. He suggested a lift and I asked for a fat transfer, so I had it all done together. He was honest and caring. I like his bedside manner. I always get in early for my appointments. His office staff is nice as was the OR staff during my..."- R. / RealSelf / Jan 26, 2018
For neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed just in front or behind your ears, and another one might also be created beneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Following that, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be carefully excised and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is performed until the desired contour has been attained. Even though your incisions are sutured closed, scarring should not be noticeable since they are placed under your chin. An injection such as Kybella may also be used to enhance the results. Other additional nonsurgical options can help the skin's texture and surface, such as laser, peel, or IPL treatment, to create a glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After a neck lift, there will probably be some mild swelling and discoloration from bruising, but these will dissipate in a few days. You should rest and try to avoid exercise or strenuous movements and activities for a couple of weeks to assist in a safe recovery. During this time, loose clothing should be worn. You should see visible aesthetic differences almost immediately. In fact, it has been noted that the neck lift surgery can make one of the most stunning enhancements to your profile, turning back the hands of time on your appearance.
