What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift tightens skin and tissue in the neck area to eliminate sagging skin. Dr. Langon offers the “Just for Men” neck lift for patients with sagging in the neck area who need a quick recovery time. 

The “Just for Men” single-incision neck lift is a great option for anyone (not just men) who has a problem with sagging that is limited to the neck area. Only a single short skin incision (about one inch long) is required. Because there are no incisions above the jawline and the recovery is quick, patients can return to work activities within a few days.

Similar to a facelift, Dr. Langdon will numb the area of the neck using tumescent local anesthesia, a gentle process that will completely numb this area. In most cases, he will then perform liposuction using tiny skin incisions that will not require stitches. 

Next, Dr. Langdon will make a small (about one inch long) horizontal skin incision under the chin. From this single incision, he will loosen the subcutaneous layer beneath the skin as well as the layer just beneath the platysma muscle. He will then remove excess loose platysma tissue and stitch the left and right platysma edges together. This platysma “plication” is the key to the neck lift because it tightens this layer, like the SMAS layer is tightened in a facelift.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?

The neck is the most common area that shows aging because of gravitational sagging. Platysmal bands show as vertical, droopy ridges (usually two) in the area beneath the chin. A ‘turkey neck” or wattle can be made worse by the presence of excess fat combined with loose skin.

People who have this type of sagging in the neck but not in the face (above the jawline) are the best candidates for the “Just for Men” neck lift. This single-incision procedure is ideal for men who desire the quickest possible recovery because they more often have isolated neck sagging and because they usually have short hair that can’t hide the in-front of-the-ear incisions that are used in a regular facelift.

“I had an express face lift 13 years ago. At the time I was very happy with the results. I looked younger and fresher, but the effect was also natural. Now 13 years years later, at the age of 68, I still look great. When I tell people my age, they express disbelief. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who wants to look younger.” *

What is Recovery Like From a Neck Lift?

Because the “Just for Men” neck lift uses a single small incision, people have minimal recovery time. Patients can usually return to work within days. Dr. Langdon will provide instructions to follow during the recovery process to maximize your results and help you heal more quickly.
