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.

Neck and Jawline Contour Ideal Candidates
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.
Neck and Jawline Contour Surgical Technique
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 with Neck and Jawline Contour
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.
Neck and Jawline Contour 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.

"I went to Dr Saman for surgical removal of my thyroid. While no one wants to go through surgery for cancer, Dr Saman and his staff made the experience as easy as possible and did a great job minimizing worries. There is always a ton of testing, coordination and review and his team did an amazing job. Highly recommended him for his surgical skill and his office for their prompt, efficient, quick assistance. After I heal from this surgery, I will gladly use him for his surgical skill in plastic surgery."- M.P. / Yelp / Jan 12, 2020
"I never write reviews, but I could not pass on an opportunity to express how amazing Dr. Saman and his team is. I've hated the shape of my nose since I was about 12 or 13. After doing lots of research on rhinoplasty, I felt that Dr. Saman was the perfect man for the job. I went to the consultation, and him and his team were so sweet and supportive. You can tell that they really care about your concerns and I immediately knew I was in good hands. The surgery is over now, and I am 100% satisfied with the results. I think Dr. Saman and his team were just as excited as me during the reveal. These people live to see their clients smile! I can't say enough good things. Amazing experience."- K.A. / Yelp / Jan 07, 2020
