Neck Lift Surgery for Men

neck lift

Many men might not think about the appearance of their neck, but this is one of the first places to show signs of aging. In addition, sun damage or extreme weight loss can also cause the skin on someone’s neck to look loose, sagging and aged. If your neck skin has lost elasticity and sags, or if there is excess skin or fat, a neck lift surgery is your best option. At NuVista Plastic Surgery, our qualified plastic surgeon can perform neck lift surgery and help you achieve a smooth, slim, youthful-looking neck.

The Procedure

In a neck lift surgery, Dr. Petersen removes excess skin and fat deposits from the neck area and can possibly restructure the underlying muscle. The procedure is one of the safest and most reliable in plastic surgery. Modern advances in plastic surgery make it possible for the male neck lift surgery to be performed with minimal incisions and scarring while providing excellent, natural-looking results. Many patients only need local anesthesia combined with a sedative, but you can opt for general anesthesia if you prefer to be unconscious.

Neck lift surgery is performed with small incisions, usually placed in hidden spots behind the ears and under the chin. Through the incisions, the doctor removes excess fat, either through liposuction or surgical excision. Slack muscles can be tightened if desired. After the work involving underlying tissue is completed, the skin is replaced, pulled tautly and the incisions are sutured.


Recovery from a neck lift takes two to four weeks for most people, though many will return to work in two weeks. The scars are usually not noticeable after a few weeks. If there are persistent scars, you can use makeup to cover them. It’s important to realize that the aging process still continues after the procedure, so tissue will relax within the first few weeks.
