Male Neck Lift
How Do Men Benefit From A Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the jawline and neck. A neck lift is useful to decrease the signs of aging, smooth asymmetric contours, and treat excess skin and fatty deposits under the neck and chin.

Aging, heredity, environment, and stress are all factors that can cause a loss of the contours and shapeliness of the chin, neck and jawline. Patients that opt for a neck lift seek to improve visible sagging, excess sagging, and prominent jowls.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR A NECK LIFT?

Patients that undergo a neck lift procedure are usually those that do not want or need a full facelift because the upper parts of their face are not problematic areas. For many, the neck and jawline do not match the pleasant contours and symmetry of the upper face, which is when a neck lift becomes a viable option.

If you notice visible signs of aging or your neck area does not match the appearance of your facial features, a neck lift may be the right procedure for you. Patients that undergo a neck lift should be in good health, be non-smokers, and not have medical conditions that may impair healing.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM A CONSULTATION

During your consultation, your board-certified plastic surgeon will discuss your goals with you and perform an evaluation to ensure that you are a good candidate for a neck lift procedure. At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we never perform any procedure unless we are certain that it is the best course of treatment for you.

Be prepared to discuss your medical history, including all known allergies and previous surgical procedures. Your plastic surgeon will also review the entire process with you and make sure that you are aware of any potential complications associated with a neck lift.

HOW IS A NECK LIFT PERFORMED?

Like most surgical procedures, a neck lift is performed by first administering a general anesthetic to ensure comfort during the operation. Then, depending on your aesthetic goals, your surgeon may perform either a traditional neck lift, or a limited incision neck lift.

During a traditional neck lift, the incision is made at the hairline near the sideburns and extends around the ear, as close to the hairline as possible to hide any visible scarring that may occur. In a limited incision neck lift, shorter incisions are made only around the ear. The type and length of the incisions depends on the extent of the procedure.

After the incisions are made, the tissue beneath the neck skin is repositioned. Muscles and soft tissue are tightened and excess fat is removed or redistributed. Skin is repositioned and tightened over the contours of the neck and chin and any loose or excess skin is removed.

Once the corrections are made, the incisions are closed using sutures and the patient is transferred to a post-anesthesia care unit

RECOVERY AFTER A NECK LIFT

A neck lift is an outpatient procedure, so patients are typically able to go home the same day. Swelling and bruising at the site of the incisions are normal. It is very important to follow all instructions given by your surgeon, including medications, wound care, and follow-up appointments.

The sutures are usually removed within a few days of the procedure. In the interim, patients should keep their head elevated slightly and avoid bending or twisting their neck excessively. Do not apply ice directly to the neck or chin because it can reduce blood flow in the affected areas.

Swelling and bruising typically go away within a few weeks. The full results of a neck lift will be visible within a month after the procedure.

WHAT DOES A NECK LIFT COST?

The average cost of a neck lift in the United States is approximately $4,500, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, this figure will vary depending on geographic location, the plastic surgeon, and your aesthetic goals.

At the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Chicago, we will provide you with a detailed cost breakdown during the initial consultation. Most health insurance providers do not cover any of the costs associated with a neck lift, so if necessary, speak with your plastic surgeon about potential financing options.

Midterm follow-up on this lovely #rhinoplasty patient who wanted nasal surgery to improve her nasal breathing but also to improve the aesthetics of the nose. Fixing the crooked nose is a challenge in rhinoplasty and on the bird’s eye view, you can visualize improvement in the dorsal aesthetic lines. Dorsal aesthetic lines are two curvilinear light reflex lines that travel from the inner eyebrow to the tip of the nose on frontal view. On profile view you can see a nice profile with the dorsal hump removed. Posted with permission.

Happy for this mother of 2 who wanted to improve the contour and aesthetics of her abdomen and waist with an #abdominoplasty or #tummy tuck. After children, women can experience rectus diastasis or separation of the abdominal muscles as the uterus expands. During a tummy tuck, plastic surgeons will address this separation by stitching the muscles back together. In the post-operative photos you can visualize the muscles re-positioned more centrally. Additionally, we will perform liposuction, remove excess abdominal skin and re-set the belly button. Posted with permission.

Asian upper blepharoplasty or “double eyelid surgery” is a variation of an upper eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty procedure where the upper eyelid crease is raised and more defined. Additionally, the epicanthal fold or skin that covers the inner corner of the eye can be removed depending on the patient’s goals. The goal of this surgery is not to necessarily create an occidental appearing eye but to maintain the patient’s features and create the appearance that the eye is larger and more refreshed.

Six month follow-up on a natural #otoplasty procedure or #earpinning procedure. Plastic surgeons board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have pioneered the techniques used today for ear pinning surgery. The surgery entails improving the definition of the ears and setting the ears closer to the scalp. The patient reports feeling more confident in the size, shape, and symmetry of his ears in social and work settings. Posted with permission.

6 month follow up on a #malerhinoplasty patient who wanted his dorsal hump removed, the nose straighter, and the tip less bulbous. The patient underwent a #primaryrhinoplasty where the dorsal hump was removed, the entire nose was straightened, and the tip refined. Pay close attention to the tip of the nose, in male rhinoplasty we try to avoid over rotating the nose or making the tip “upturned”. This maneuver feminizes the nose. Posted with permission.

Challenging #rhinoplasty in a thick-skinned patient with a lot of things to address. The patient wanted a reduction in the dorsal hump, a straighter nose, and a smaller nose over all. The patient underwent a dorsal hump reduction, the nose was medialized, and the tip de-projected or pulled closer to the face and refined. Still her nose that fits her ethnicity but more balanced and refined. Posted with permission.

My fellow Chicago Booth alumni will appreciate this post. It was a great night for the Illinois Society of Plastic Surgeons where we had Professor Jean-Pierre Dube speak about “The Chicago Booth Approach to Pricing”. Dr. Dube is the James M. Kilts Distinguished Service Professor of Marketing at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and he is the director of the Kilts Center for Marketing. Dr. Dube discussed strategies on how to use marketing models and analytics to price medical services and medical products.

I don’t usually post rhinoplasty results this early but she was looking so good so early that I had to share.

This is a great case to highlight the importance of evaluating the chin with the nose in all rhinoplasty cases. Look at the video and focus on the nose, watch it a second time and focus on the chin, and then watch it a third time and focus on the nose and chin or the whole face. For the rhinoplasty, most of the work was focused on the nasal tip. For the chin, a reduction genioplasty was performed to narrow, lower, and set the chin back. Posted with permission.
