The neck is one of the areas that shows the earliest signs of aging in both men and women. Exposure to sunlight ages the skin, and genetics determine if a person will develop deposits of fat in their skin, known as submental fullness or a double chin. Neck banding is another common problem that is caused by the contractions of the neck muscles. Neck-lift surgery may help with these issues to give your neck a younger and smoother appearance.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
You may be a good candidate for a neck lift if you have:
- Loose skin under the chin and along the underside of the jawline
- Excess fat under the chin and underside of the jaw
- Crinkled skin, wrinkles, and lines

Refining Neck Contours: Understanding Your Options
Comprehensive Neck and Facelift Combination
For individuals looking to address more pronounced signs of aging in the neck area, a comprehensive approach combining neck lift and facelift procedures is often recommended. This holistic strategy ensures a harmonious rejuvenation of the neck and facial contours, delivering a more youthful and refined appearance.
FaceTite: A Minimally Invasive Option
If your concern is mild sagging, FaceTite might be the perfect fit. This minimally invasive procedure uses radiofrequency energy to firm up the skin and boost collagen, offering a quick recovery and effective results for those seeking a less intensive solution.
Z-Plasty Neck Lift: A Unique Surgical Approach
The Z-Plasty neck lift stands out for its innovative incision technique, offering a unique alternative to traditional neck lifts that typically conceal scars within the hairline. This method places the incision in a way that the resulting scar can be easily hidden under a shirt collar, significantly reducing tension on the scar for improved healing. Ideal for enhancing neck contours and reducing signs of aging with minimal visibility of scarring, Z-Plasty is designed for those who seek a discreet yet effective solution to neck rejuvenation. This approach allows for the same recovery timeline as other neck lift procedures, with most patients returning to their daily activities within a week, ensuring a smoother, more contoured neck appearance with less concern for post-surgical scar visibility.
