Necklift in San Diego, CA
When performed correctly, a neck lift has a tremendously positive impact. The neck, chin, and jawline are often the first areas of the face to show signs of aging and gravity. An experienced neck lift surgeon, like Dr. Dennis Bucko or Farid Brad Mozaffari of Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Center, can restore youthful contours to the lower region of the face for an overall rejuvenating effect.
What Is a Neck Lift?
The neck lift procedure rejuvenates the neck to correct sagging, banding, and crinkly crepe-paper skin that gives you an aged appearance. Many men and women overlook the effects of an older neck area, yet this is often the area that makes you look older.

How Is a Neck Lift Performed?
The procedural steps of a standard neck lift procedure vary, according to the patient’s specific needs. Typically, sagging fat is redistributed from the jowls back up to the cheek area to create a more attractive contour along the jawline. Excess skin is removed from the neck and the remaining skin is re-draped more tightly. The platysma muscles may be released, repositioned, and tightened to eliminate vertical muscle cords or banding.
Any excess fat on the neck can be liposuctioned away. The surgery is performed through an incision around the ear, and possibly an additional incision underneath the chin. Neck lift incisions are placed to hide the resulting scars.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from My Neck Lift?
During recovery from a neck lift, the area will feel tight, and you may notice some tingling. These symptoms are a normal part of the healing. Swelling and bruising may occur. Recovery from combined neck lift and facelift may require more downtime.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Generally, neck lift is a suitable option for individuals that are bothered by:
- Loose, saggy neck skin
- Relaxation of excess fat and skin in the lower face that creates jowls
- Vertical lines or muscle banding on the neck
- Excess fatty deposits underneath the chin that give the appearance of a “double chin”
- Wrinkled neck skin

Does a neck lift get rid of jowls?
Yes, Dr. Mozaffari can tailor the necklift surgical plan to target jowls and sagging along the jawline. The surgery may also be recommended for a double chin.
Where are the scars after a neck lift?
The most common incision placement for neck lift surgery is under the chin. In some cases, Dr. Mozaffari also uses incisions behind the ears. Necklift incisions are very small, so the resulting scars are well-hidden and difficult to notice.
What are the benefits of having a neck lift and facelift?
Having a necklift and facelift at the same time is an excellent way to dramatically improve your entire appearance. The neck tends to show the earliest signs of aging, so it is beneficial to rejuvenate this area while you are having a facelift.
