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 Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center can provide dramatic enhancements to the lower section of your face.

Ideal Candidates

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.

Surgical Technique

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.

I typically steer clear of reviews regarding medical professionals mainly because I like to keep my medical care private. However, I am making an exception for a surgeon that has provided me with consistent, quality care. Dr. Glenn Lyle deserves to be recognized for his surgical skills, the quality of his staff, and the amazing care he and his staff provide their patients. Let me begin this review by sharing that I got my initial recommendation for Dr. Lyle the old fashion way -- word-of-mouth! That is how good he is at his work and how much his patients like him. He was described to me by those that recommended him (yes, more than one) as a highly skilled surgeon that listens to his patients, addresses any questions and concerns in a truthful, forthright manner, and treats his patients with compassion. I have now been a patient of Dr. Lyle’s several times over the years, and I can say that I totally agree with that assessment. In addition to being a skilled surgeon, he is also a very compassionate person. Recently, I was attacked by a large dog while out of town/state. I was in the hospital for several days and had two surgeries, including a skin graft, on my arm. I was released from the hospital, received one follow-up visit with the trauma surgeon before being released to go back to Raleigh. To say the attack traumatized me immensely is an understatement. It only added to my anxiety not having a provider in Raleigh who could take over the continuing wound care for my arm and leg. Lost for direction, I booked a consult with Dr. Lyle, who I highly respect and trust, to see if he could recommend someone that could handle my wound care. Much to my surprise, Dr. Lyle offered to take on my care if I wanted him too. (Ends up, he had a lot of experience in burn and wound care from early in his career.) Words still cannot express the immense relief and gratitude I felt at Dr. Lyle’s unexpected offer! Dr. Lyle and his staff quite literally brought me back to life emotionally and physically because of their collective care. Specifically, Dr. Lyle and his P.A. Hayley provide me with fabulous wound care. In my time as a patient with Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center, the entire staff from Pam (Office Manager) to Britney and Erin (excellent R.N.s) to Kathryn (get a facial from Kat - you will love it!) have consistently been positive interactions. Most important, the continuity of Dr. Lyle’s care throughout the years, regardless of the situation or procedure, remains as strong today as it was when I first became one of his many satisfied patients years ago! So, yes, I highly recommend you check out Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center!

Dr. Lyle helped me immensely with my TMJ pain. So thankful that he introduced me to masseter botox - it’s changed my life! Also, Kat is a passionate and skilled esthetician. Her facials always leave my skin happy and glowing! They care about the patient, not just the bottom line. I genuinely trust the Lyle team and often recommend them to anyone interested in procedures or med spa treatments in the Raleigh/Durham area :)

I absolutely cannot say enough good things about this place! All the staff is extremely welcoming, professional, and knows what they are doing! Erin is my injector and I couldn't be happier with my results!! She is extremely sweet, gentle, and knowledgeable. She always answers any questions I have and gives me suggestions based on my goals. I always leave with a great experience! I have also received a HydraFacial and Dermaplaning from Kathryn, which had my face feeling as smooth as butter! I went home glowing and peachy free!

NeoGen fan - my skin definitely feels firmer and tighter - I had my NeoGen Plasma treatment a couple months ago at Lyle Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics Center. Background, I am 52 and fair with lots of past sun damage which has caused aging. I have had other laser treatments throughout the years. NeoGen caught my eye as there is a short amount of downtime and seemly easy procedure to get through. I did A LOT of research. Also like that it has dermatological indications, ie. treating actinic keratosis. It helps rebuild skin thickness and volume. Seems to go much deeper than other lasers out there. Giving you lifting and tightening. My main concern area was around my eyes and jowls. I met with Haley, Dr. Lyle’s PA for my consult and she was the one who ended up doing my treatment. She was amazing!! She did a BBL on me just prior to the treatment then numbed my face then did the NeoGen treatment. It was comfortable, not nearly as painful as some other laser devices out there! She gave great post instructions and products to apply (Oh there are pre instructions as well, basically hydrate really well several days prior) She called me the next day to check on me and the following week to see how I was doing. I’ve waited to write this because NeoGen does not show results right away. It’s a building effect. At 2 months I can see my upper eye lids have lifted and my skin definitely feels firmer and tighter. It’s wild. They want me to come in at my 3 months for after photos and then again at 6 months. I can’t wait to see the comparison. The staff and practice in and of itself were wonderful. Feels very welcoming and everyone was so nice! Great find and will go there again for other services.
