Neck Lift Overview
Of all cosmetic surgeries, one that can produce a striking improvement to an individual’s profile, is a neck lift. Dallas, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Beck, offers this procedure for weight loss patients and for those who have loose, sagging skin in the neck area as the result of aging and gravity. A neck lift reduces excess fat and sagging skin to produce a more tightened, slimmer profile. It reduces what some refer to as the “turkey neck." In addition, this procedure treats the appearance of wrinkles and unsightly lines on the neck. The primary technique used during a neck lift is skin tightening. However, some patients may not necessarily need skin tightening, but instead could benefit from liposuction. During the consultation, the difference between a neck lift and neck liposuction will be discussed so that the best approach can be taken.
Neck Lift Reviews
"51 Year Old Female Found a Trusted Gifted Surgeon - Dallas, TX - Dr. Beck lived up to all my expectations. I trust him completely and recommend him highly. He was generous with his time during the initial consultation and each post op followup. He even gave me his personal email and cell phone number so that I could easily reach him with any concerns. His office staff and the medical staff at the surgery center were all professional and kind. I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Beck is a gifted surgeon. - - The hardest part for me in deciding to have a neck lift was finding a surgeon that I trusted. I am relatively new to the Dallas area which made getting personal references difficult. After doing research online I found Dr. Beck. He's board certified and works with the prestigious Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute. It was enough for me to make an appointment for a consultation. After my initial consultation with him, I knew that I'd found a physician that I trusted with my appearance. He has lived up to all my expectations. I am 51 years old and am happy with the appearance of my face. I have taken excellent care of my skin. In my 30s I began using medical grade face and neck products religiously and in my 40s my began adding laser treatments such as minifraxel to tighten my skin. My face looks great for my 51 years but my neck looked its age. The expensive creams and laser treatments didn't work as well on my neck ~ hence my opting for a next lift. I hoped by having a neck lift done in my early 50s few people would notice ~ and, at only 7 weeks post op, none have. I LOVE THE RESULTS. Dr. Beck has been wonderfully generous with his time ~ from the initial consult to the post op visits, he spends all the time I need to answer all my questions. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Beck and the results of the surgery he performed."- M. / RealSelf / Apr 14, 2016

Neck Lift Surgical Technique
A neck lift reduces hanging skin and reshapes the neck. During the procedure, an incision is placed under the chin and/or behind or in front of the ears. If fat deposits are present and need to be removed, liposuction will be used during the surgery and performed first. The final steps of treatment will be to trim away excess skin, pull the remaining underlying tissue and muscle tight, and suture the incision.
Neck Lift During/After Surgery
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited surgical clinic. The duration of the surgery usually takes around 2 hours, although it may vary depending on the case. Bruising and swelling will be visible after the surgery, but this will subside in the few short days following the procedure. Initially, patients will feel tightness and numbness. Once the neck adjusts to its new position, patients will notice a more relaxed feeling and a beautiful surgical result. It can take up to 6 months for the final results to appear.

Neck Lift FAQs
Alternative to Lift?
Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it is loose enough to hang and droop. Therefore, a neck lift is the only solution when it comes to redefining an individual’s neck to create a strong contour. While there are some very good skin tightening laser treatments on the market today, surgery is still the best option.
There is minimal scarring with this procedure. Since the incision is placed under the chin and near the ears, the scarring is usually hidden. A skilled facial surgeon will take great effort to minimize scarring as much as possible.
This depends on the situation and the amount of loose and sagging skin that is present. Some weight loss patients are young and may require a neck lift at a young age (for example, those between 20-30). For older patients who are combatting loose skin due to aging, the most common age is between 50-70.
During the initial consultation, it may be brought up that in addition to a neck lift, the patient may also benefit from another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the patient’s desired contours and aesthetic goals.
