About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you sick of wearing scarves or turtlenecks even in warm weather to conceal the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Masoud Saman performs neck lift surgery at his practice in Dallas, TX to correct the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery tightens the area under your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates a "turkey neck" or "double chin." By taking away the loose skin and fat while incorporating a tightening technique to produce a smoother, natural neckline, this lower facial surgery at DallasFaceDoc can provide significant improvements to your profile. Before you contact us to schedule an appointment, read more about surgical neck lifts and the beautiful results it can create.
Men and women hoping to undergo neck lift treatment generally have visibly loose skin along their neck. Neck skin that hangs is usually caused by numerous factors, including gravity, weight fluctuations, and aging. Whatever the reason may be, hanging neck skin causes an undesirable look, which generally can only be addressed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If your weight is stable, but you feel frustrated by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles along your neck, a neck lift surgery may be a great answer.
During a neck lift, IV sedation or general anesthesia is typically used. The incision point is placed around your ears while another one may also be made underneath your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, liposuction of the neck will be performed first. Next, any sagging or hanging skin will be trimmed away and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This tightening method is conducted until the desired contour, shape, and smoothness has been achieved. Even though sutures are used to close the incision, scars should not be visible to others since they are located beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection (Kybella) may be recommended to complement your results.
What to Expect
After neck lift surgery, there will most likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away in about 7 – 10 days. It's important to rest and eliminate high-impact activity for several weeks to assist in the healing period. You should notice visible outcomes almost immediately that improve over the next several months. Be sure to follow all of Dr. Saman's post-surgical instructions, including scar care management to minimize the appearance of the small surgical incisions.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a neck lift cost?
Costs for your neck surgery will be reviewed in your consultation with Dr. Saman. As soon as he has developed your surgical plan, he will be able to estimate prices for the anesthesia, facility, and other fees. To make your neck surgery easy to afford, DallasFaceDoc takes several payments methods, plus we can tell you more about how to get low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Neck lift surgery is the best option to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it is droopy or hangs. Although there are a few nonsurgical skin tightening procedures that may give you mild improvements, neck lift surgery can more dramatically redefine and smooth your neckline. A popular, minimally invasive treatment called Kybella targets fat in the submental area, which can improve the appearance of a double chin; however, it doesn't address excess skin.
Will I have visible scars?
Neck lift surgery does typically include one incision below the chin, as well as two more close to the ears. These are made so the scars are difficult for others to see. Dr. Saman tries very hard during neck lift surgery to limit visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will encourage your incisions to heal flat and thin until they are barely distinguishable from the surrounding skin.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, you should mention if you are thinking about another surgery, like a facelift or chin augmentation, along with a neck lift. It's normal for two or more face surgeries to be done together to get your best results. If you are concerned about an undefined jawline or weak chin, tell Dr. Saman so he can develop a plan that meets all your goals.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Based on your concerns and goals, you might want to combine a neck lift with liposuction. A lift plus lipo may be best if you are concerned about both loose skin and fat pockets in your neck. Dr. Saman can help you choose whether a lift, lipo, or a combination of both should be included in your surgical plan.

"Wow!!!! Dr. Saman is fantastic. He is very intelligent and his staff is overly on top of their game. Upon walking in the office, I was greeted my Maegan who had all of my insurance information ready for my procedure. They took me back as soon as my paperwork was complete. I really appreciated not having to wait like I have in other offices. Dr. Saman answered every question I threw his way. I feel beyond comfortable in his hands. If you're looking for a doctor who will WOW you then you should see Dr. Saman."- A.J. / Yelp / Aug 12, 2019

"This review is long overdue. I had a revision rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Saman in February and cannot express enough just how happy I am with him and with my results. Dr. Saman always patiently and actively listened to my concerns and questions, always taking his time to explain his thoughts and recommendations in return. Within the first moments of him walking into the room, it was apparent that Dr. Saman is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his patients and his work. Not only is Dr. Saman an amazing and meticulous surgeon, but he turns his craft into a true art form, understanding that mere millimeters make all the difference for the best results. Most of all, it has always been blatantly obvious that Dr. Saman deeply cares for his patients' happiness and well-being, wishing them newfound comfort and confidence after their procedures.
