What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a popular cosmetic procedure to remove excess or sagging skin around the jawline and tighten loose neck muscles. The surgery helps patients reduce signs of aging and achieve a slimmer, more defined lower face area.

What Is Neck Liposuction?

Neck liposuction is a common type of liposuction meant to remove pockets of excess fat beneath the chin and around the neck. The surgery is often used to remove the appearance of a “double chin,” and it can also refine the jawline and improve facial balance.

How Does the Procedure Work?

In many cases, a neck lift will be done in conjunction with neck liposuction. However, the two surgeries are quite different in how they’re performed.

  • Neck Lift: Typically, a neck lift is performed by making incisions beneath the chin, tightening the neck muscles with sutures, and removing or tightening any excess skin. If the patient has pockets of fat around the neck or jawline that they want removed, Dr. Corrado may perform neck liposuction along with the neck lift.
  • Neck Liposuction: Neck liposuction begins with small incisions behind the ears and under the chin. Then, a tumescent fluid solution is injected into the targeted areas of fat. Once the fat cells have been loosened, the excess fat is removed using a narrow cannula attached to a suction machine.

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you’re interested in a South Jersey neck lift or neck liposuction procedure, the first step will be to have a consultation with Dr. Corrado. This meeting is important for establishing your goals for the surgery. Additionally, Dr. Corrado will need to know about your medical history and any medications you’re currently taking.

Both neck lifts and neck liposuction are typically done as outpatient procedures. To start the operation, you’ll be given either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Next, Dr. Corrado will make the necessary incisions for the procedure and begin reshaping your neck. A neck lift in South Jersey will typically take between one and three hours, whereas neck liposuction in South Jersey usually takes about an hour.
