A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Dr. Narsete’s uses his experience and artful eye to perform this complex cosmetic surgical procedure in a safe and seamless manner and helps you regain your youthful contours in the face and neck.
A neck lift corrects the signs of aging that occurs as the skin around the jawline sags, and fat deposits begin to collect around the neck. This procedure tightens the skin and neck muscles using incisions hidden in front of and behind the ear. A neck lift can rejuvenate your look, refreshing your appearance and giving you a younger and more elegant look. If you are feeling self-conscious about folds and sagging around your neck, a neck lift can improve your confidence.
As a restorative surgery, a neck lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. A neck lift can only be performed surgically; nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same results, but may help delay the time at which a neck lift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.
The Best Candidates for a Neck Lift
Most patients who elect for a neck lift are men and women between the ages of 40 and 60. However, a neck lift can be an option for patients well into their 70s or 80s. If you have noticed sagging skin around your neck and face, you may find that a neck lift will improve your self-esteem. New Jersey Plastic Surgery® will consult with you to identify your bone structure and skin elasticity and will discuss with you the results you can expect from a neck lift procedure.

Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper face is still pleasing. However, many patients will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a double chin or “turkey wattle” and jowl lines. When the neck area doesn’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution. However, it is important that you choose a surgeon who has the expertise and artistic insight required to deliver the desired results. Dr. Narsete is one of those very few surgeons who have performed over a thousand facial rejuvenation procedures in Denver.
