Procedure: Neck Lift


So much of who we are as individuals and how we feel in any given moment is expressed on our faces. Unfortunately time is our enemy. As we age skin loses its elasticity, wrinkles develop, and often the area under our chins begins to sag. And soon, that once youthful appearance is gone. This can make us feel old before our time. A neck lift either alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures can help to restore that youthful energetic appearance we all cherish.

A good candidate is:

  • A non-smoker
  • Generally healthy individual
  • Has excess or loose skin in the neck area

Procedure description:

The neck lift procedure usually involves a small incision under the chin and may also include incisions behind or in front of the ears. This allows Dr. Shenko to tighten the muscles in the neck and remove excess fat. Liposuction may be used to remove the fat. After this the Doctor will tighten and remove any excess skin and close the incisions with sutures. A neck lift is often performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures. Depending on which procedures are performed the neck lift portion of the surgery should last a minimum of two to three hours.

For additional information about the procedure, answers to any questions you might have or to discuss your particular situation, please contact Dr. Shenko to schedule a consultation!


Following the procedure you may experience some swelling, bruising and discomfort, which may be managed by medication. You may also feel some tingling or tightness that should pass in a couple of weeks.

Most people return to work between 10 and 14 days following the procedure. You may need to wait an additional period of time before resuming sports, of other strenuous physical activities.
