Neck Lift Tampa, FL

A neck lift provides dramatic, instant cosmetic improvement to sagging jowls, redundant neck skin, vertical neck bands, and excess fat under the chin known as submental fat (a double chin).

This surgical procedure aims to tighten skin along with the musculature and supportive tissues in the neck area, thereby helping men and women to take several years off their appearance. A neck lift may be performed on its own, or it may be done in conjunction with other anti-aging facial procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, brow lift, or dermal wrinkles fillers depending on the cosmetic concerns expressed by the patient during the consultation process.

Landon Plastic Surgery designs treatment plans that can meet every need. Neck lift surgery may be suitable for patients that have the following cosmetic concerns in the neck region:

  • Wrinkles and skin laxity of the neck
  • Loose jowls for improved jawline definition
  • Excess neck fat and skin that accumulates beneath the jaw
  • Pronounced neckbands due to loose or separated neck muscles and thinning skin

Neck Lift Surgery Procedure

Your neck lift surgery may be performed under general anesthesia.

The neck lift surgery time can take approximately 1 to 2 hours in length, although this may vary depending on the extent of correction that is desired, as well as whether additional cosmetic procedures such as eyelift or facelift surgery are being performed at the same time.

Dr. Landon, Tampa neck lift surgeon, excises the extra skin and fat in the neck and jawline, as well as tightens the neck muscle (platysmas muscle) to get rid of neckbands if indicated. The patient will be made aware of the recommended treatment plan, pre-operative instructions, and related neck lift risks prior to surgery day.

Who is a Good Candidate for Neck Lift Surgery?

Women and men throughout the Tampa area seek surgical neck rejuvenation at Landon Plastic Surgery to address a variety of cosmetic concerns related to aging neck skin and tissue. We offer both standard neck lifts and the mini neck lift in Tampa. There are certain criteria that must be met to qualify for a neck lift procedure. The ideal neck lift candidate is someone that is:

  • Bothered by visible signs of neck aging that makes them look older than they would like
  • In good physical and mental health
  • Free of chronic, uncontrolled medical conditions that may unduly increase surgical risks
  • A non-smoker (or is willing to quit prior to surgery)
  • Understanding the fact that cosmetic surgery provides a marked improvement, but not perfection
  • Self-motivated to have cosmetic surgery (i.e., not under the influence of another person)
  • Aware that rare, but serious, surgical risks are a possibility with any surgery
  • Willing to take a short time off work to recover from neck lift surgery if needed

Neck Lift Recovery

Patients may return home the same day as surgery. In the event general anesthesia is administered, a friend or family member must be present to drive you to and from the appointment. While neck lift pain is well-tolerated, prescription pain medications may be provided for pain management. It is mandatory that the patient fills any prescriptions at the pharmacy prior to surgery day so that pain management can take effect without delay for enhanced patient comfort during early recovery. Dr. Landon’s team will advise you of follow-up appointments, which are necessary to monitor healing
