The neck is among the first areas to show visible signs of aging. In some individuals, the neck appears older than the face, and in some cases, the dreaded “turkey neck” or “wattle” effect develops, characterized by vertical bands of sagging skin in the neck. A neck lift may be the solution you seek to restore your youthful appearance. With five convenient locations serving Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine, Garcia Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Phillip Garcia, offers neck lifts for men and women who live in North Florida.

What is a Neck Lift?

The neck lift, or platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the neck area by tightening the muscles of the neck and eliminating excess sagging skin. This procedure reduces the appearance of “bands” in the neck, as well as sagging skin beneath the jawline, resulting in a firmer, more defined jawline and neck area.

Some of the more common issues that are treated with a neck lift include:

  • Excess fat in the lower face and neck
  • Excess or sagging skin
  • Neck folds
  • Neck bands
  • Turkey wattle effect

The Neck Lift Procedure

The neck lift is a safe and simple procedure performed on an outpatient basis with either twilight or local anesthesia. Incisions are typically located behind the ears, under the chin or in both regions. During the procedure, the underlying neck muscles are tightened and realigned, excess skin and fat are trimmed away, and the remaining skin is lifted. Incisions are then sutured, and a dressing may be applied.

Neck Lift Aftercare

It is normal to expect some degree of mild swelling and bruising following a neck lift. Pain medication may be prescribed to ease any possibility of discomfort. If a dressing is applied, it is typically removed within a day or two. Absorbable sutures are always used, and these will be removed or trimmed after one week. Patients are usually able to resume regular activities within a week.
