What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that addresses the signs of aging in the neck, which can include sagging jowls and skin, excess fat, or banding. Dr. Daugherty will specifically design your neck lift to address your needs, improving:

  • Muscle and skin laxity
  • Jawline definition
  • Double chin
  • Wrinkles in the neck
  • Muscle bands

Often, patients who are considering neck lifts are also concerned about the appearance of their mid- or upper facial regions. You can choose other rejuvenation procedures to get simultaneously for full facial rejuvenation, including: 

  • Facelift 
  • Brow lift
  • Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty

No matter what you’re seeking to improve, double board-certified Dr. Daugherty takes the time to listen and understand. She only recommends treatments and procedures that will help you achieve your desired aesthetic results.

Following your neck lift, you may experience long-lasting results and:

What Can I Expect During a Neck Lift Procedure?

Dr. Daugherty will customize your neck lift for optimal results. However, here are some general steps you can expect.

Check-In and Anesthesia
Plan to arrive about an hour before your procedure. After our team has greeted you and checked you in, Dr. Daugherty will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, and perform surgical markings. Once you are safely resting under anesthesia, Dr. Daugherty will begin your procedure.
Neck Lift Procedure
According to your procedural plan, Dr. Daugherty will create small, well-concealed incisions behind the ear, under the chin, or within the posterior hairline. From these incisions, she will remove excess skin and fat, tighten the muscles, and redefine your jawline and chin.
Neck Lift Aftercare
After your neck lift, bruising and swelling are typical. You might have a compression dressing placed around your head and chin to reduce swelling and help your body adjust to its new contours. Typically, most patients can return to work in one to two weeks. For four to six weeks, you should avoid activities that may increase your blood pressure. However, we encourage you to start gentle walks as soon as possible.

FAQ

Baton Rouge, LA, Neck Lift

Neck lift cost in Louisiana depends on your specific needs and desired results. Following your consultation, Dr. Daugherty will give you a breakdown of your total price tag.

Following your neck lift, you will experience swelling and bruising that may last for a couple of weeks. You can expect to feel well enough to return to your typical routine a week to 10 days following your procedure. Minor swelling may persist for several months; however, most people resume their usual activities by a month post-procedure.

Depending on your procedural plan, Dr. Daugherty creates well-concealed incisions behind the ear, posterior hairline, or chin. Through these, she will lift your neck muscles, remove excess skin and fat, and redefine your jawline and chin. 

In addition to neck lift surgery, Dr. Daugherty also specializes in other facial rejuvenation procedures, including brow lifts, eyelid lifts, and facelifts.

All patients have unique needs, so Dr. Daugherty takes a personalized approach to determine the necessary techniques for each procedure. There are two major types of neck lifts: cervicoplasty and platysmaplasty. 

  • Cervicoplasty surgically removes excess skin and involves liposuction to address fat. 
  • Platysmaplasty addresses a banded appearance by removing, tightening, or repositioning neck muscles.

While compression dressings and chin straps might be a minor annoyance, they help minimize swelling and allow your body to adjust to its new contours. Without compression dressings, swelling may persist longer than necessary.
