About Neck Lift Surgery
Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Anthony Nikko, performs neck lift surgery at the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston, TX to reduce the appearance of an aging neckline. This cosmetic surgery tightens the section under the chin and the entire neck to remove the "double chin" or "turkey neck" appearance. By taking away the excess skin and fat, while incorporating a tightening method to produce in a softer neckline, this lower facial surgery can provide significant enhancements to the lower half of a patient’s face.
Men and women who are seeking neck lift surgery generally battle visibly loose skin along the neckline. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Regardless of the reason, hanging neck skin causes an unbecoming look, which generally can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If your weight is stable, but you are frustrated by loose skin, wrinkles, and lines on the neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great option. If loose skin is not your main issue, you may be better suited for neck liposuction.

"I alwayssss recommend Dr. Nikko when friends are looking for a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. My family has been coming to Dr. Nikko for a couple years now. His staff is always so sweet and helpful in answering the millions of questions I always ask! And Dr. Nikko so personable. He is one of the few doctors I’ve ever met that asks about how myself and the kids are doing every single time I see him; I feel he genuinely cares for my family. He never makes you feel like you are just another number or rushed to get you out the door. My husband and kids will continue to see him as needed!"- A.A. / Google / Aug 09, 2019

Plan Your Procedure
During neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed around the ears, and another one may also be made underneath the chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, a form of liposuction will be completed first. Following that aspect, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin pulled tight. This tightening method will be performed until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been attained. Although sutures are used to close the incision, scarring will not be visibly seen since they are located under the chin. An injection, such as Kybella, may also be used to enhance the results. Furthermore, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's surface, such as laser treatment or a peel to create a smooth and glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these symptoms typically do not last long. It's important to rest and eliminate stressful movements and activities for several weeks to assist in the healing process. During this time, fitted clothing near the neck should be avoided. Men and women will see visible outcomes almost immediately. In fact, it has been stated that neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant improvements to a person's profile, taking a decade off their appearance.
