A More Youthful Profile

A neck lift in Chicago is a cosmetic surgery that improves the appearance and contour of the neck and jawline. With the help of a neck lift, you can restore the youthful definition that is lost due to the natural aging process. The surgery may tighten muscles, remove excess skin, or reduce fat to firm and tone the neck and reduce the creasing and wrinkles associated with aging. The result is a smoother, slimmer profile and a more youthful-looking neck, jaw, and chin.

Some of the benefits of a neck lift include the following:

  • Tightens hanging skin
  • Reduces jowling
  • Contours the jawline
  • Reduces neck wrinkles
  • Reduces neck fat
  • Removes double-chin
  • Reduces vertical neckbands

Is a Neck Lift Right for Me?

Candidates for a neck lift have sagging skin and a lack of definition in the neckline. To determine if a neck lift is right for you, we will start with an informative consultation to examine your neck and evaluate your concerns. Generally, ideal candidates for a neck lift are nonsmokers in good health who have the following concerns:

  • Excess skin and fat under the chin and along the neck
  • A double chin or jowls
  • Diminished skin elasticity due to aging or weight loss
  • Vertical banding or muscle laxity in the neck
  • Desire a more defined and youthful-looking neck and jawline

Your Initial Consultation 

We recommend beginning your journey with a consultation at our Northbrook or Naperville locations to ensure the procedure is the right fit for you. We also offer virtual consultations for your convenience. This provides the opportunity to ask any questions and have your concerns addressed. Our experienced team will evaluate your medical history, skin elasticity, neck muscle, and overall health and understand your goals. We’ll provide information on the details of your neck lift surgery, risks and benefits, and the recovery process. We will develop a personalized surgical plan that meets your unique needs and goals.

The Day of Your Neck Lift Procedure

Neck lifts are same-day, outpatient surgeries performed in our accredited surgical center. Anesthesia is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. To achieve optimal results, we may utilize various techniques during your surgery. The scope of your procedure depends on the condition of the treatment area and your aesthetic goals. To begin the neck lift (neck rhytidectomy), an incision is made in the natural crease around the ear and possibly within the hairline, depending on the severity of skin laxity.

The underlying tissues are repositioned. This may include tightening of the neck muscles, a procedure known as platysmaplasty. We may also redistribute fat or perform liposuction through a small incision under the chin. We’ll trim away excess tissue and lift the skin into a more youthful position before meticulously closing the incisions. Neck lift scarring is kept to a minimum by camouflaging the incisions in the natural folds and shadows around the ears, hairline, and chin.

Recovery and Results

Your neck lift recovery depends on the scope of your procedure. Most patients return to work within seven to fourteen days. You may experience tightness, bruising, and swelling following the process, which typically subsides in weeks.

Following the procedure, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your neck. Our patients typically notice a visible improvement in their neck within the first few weeks after treatment, with continued improvement over the following months as the skin and underlying tissues heal. It’s essential to keep in mind that your results are long-lasting but not permanent, as the normal aging process continues after surgery. A neck lift will take years off your appearance, but it cannot stop aging, and your results will gradually lessen with time. Nevertheless, most patients enjoy their rejuvenated look for many years.
