Male Neck Lift in New Jersey

Although neck lifts aren’t as popular as some other face procedures, they are an excellent option for those who aren’t looking for a complete facelift. A neck lift may be a good option for those whose lower face and neck are beginning to show signs of aging. A neck lift can bring back the neck’s natural look, allowing your face to regain its position as the star of the show.

What Is a Neck Lift?

Also known as a rhytidectomy, a neck lift removes excess fat and skin from the lower face under the chin, which can sometimes create drooping jowls. By eliminating the excess fat and tightening loose skin, a neck lift can relieve muscle banding in the neck that forms abnormal contours and gives off an aging neck appearance.

Ideal Candidates for a Neck Lift

Those experiencing signs of aging in their lower face and neck from sagging skin and excess fat would be ideal candidates for a neck lift. Many patients choose neck lifts because they feel the upper areas of their face are not beginning to age as much as the lower. Additionally, those considering a neck lift procedure should be non-smokers and live a healthy lifestyle to have a safe and healthy recovery. It is also crucial for neck lift patients to have reasonable expectations about the surgeries’ results. Remember, plastic surgery is not meant to turn back the hands of time; rather, it is intended to improve areas of the patient’s body they feel uncomfortable with.

Details of a Neck Lift Procedure

A neck lift procedure will proceed with the following steps:

  • Step 1 – Anesthesia: For your comfort and safety during surgery, Dr. Franckle will administer you with either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Depending on your personal situation, he will recommend what he thinks is best.
  • Step 2 – Incision: Depending on the individual results you seek, Dr. Franckle may use a limited or a traditional neck lift incision. For a traditional neck lift incision, you can expect it to begin around the hairline near your sideburns and then continue down around the ear and end in the posterior headline. Excess fat may be cut from the jowls of your neck. The tissue underlying your neck will be repositioned, and the platysma muscle is then tightened. Your skin will be redraped on top of the uplifted contours, and any excess skin will be trimmed away. Next, a different incision will be placed under your chin for liposuction of this area and muscle repair. For a limited incision neck lift, Dr. Franckle may put your incisions around the ear. While these incisions are shorter, they also yield more limited results.
  • Step 3 – Closing the incision: Dr. Franckle will close your incisions with sutures and possibly skin glue. Depending on the sutures used, they may dissolve or need to be removed. Once you are fully healed, your incisions should be hidden by your hairline and natural contours of the ear.

Neck Lift Recovery

After your surgery is complete, Dr. Franckle will wrap bandages around your incisions. You will then be informed of your post-operative medications, possible side effects, and what to expect for your first few days of recovering at home. It is very important that you keep your head elevated to minimize swelling and avoid applying ice because this can staunch your blood flow to your healing areas.

Neck Lift Results

You should expect a few weeks of swelling and bruising after your procedure. To help reduce swelling, Dr. Franckle may recommend you wear a special garment that compresses your neck. Rember, always keep your neck elevated above your heart and don’t twist or bend it. According to the Mayo Clinic, it might take six months for your incision to fade. During this time, be careful to protect your skin from the sun, avoid wearing clothes you need to pull over your head, and be as gentle as possible around your surgical incisions.

Cost of a Neck Lift Procedure

Depending on the patient, the average neck lift procedure costs between $6,000-$9,000. But for an exact quote, you should visit the William Franckle, MD, FACS office. Before you apply for any of our financing options, we recommend going over your needs with our patient coordinator, Bianca. She will guide you through the application process and inform you of any special offers.

How to Prepare for a Neck Lift

Before your neck lift, Dr. Franckle will meet with you to evaluate your health and discuss your goals and expectations for surgery. He will then decide which surgical method works best for you and suggest some additional procedures he thinks will help you reach your ideal body aesthetic. Your face will be examined, and photographs may be taken so you can compare your appearance before and after surgery.


Neck Lift FAQ’s

Like any other surgery, infections or problems with anesthesia can occur. Although these instances are rare, it’s still important to be aware of the risks before going into surgery. After your neck lift, you may feel some tightness, dry skin, and a tingling sensation, but this is normal, and you shouldn’t be alarmed.

The results can last for up to ten years. While a neck lift doesn’t stop Father Time, as you continue to age, you may look younger than if you hadn’t had the surgery.
