About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you sick of wearing turtlenecks or scarves all the time to hide the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Our Colorado Springs, CO plastic surgeons offer neck lift surgery to address the look of an aging neckline. This facial surgery recontours and reshapes the area beneath your chin and along the neck to remove the loose skin that creates what is referred to as a turkey neck or double chin. By removing the loose skin and fat while introducing a tightening technique to create a smoother, natural neckline, this procedure at the Institute of Plastic Surgery can provide striking improvements to the bottom region of your face. Contact our practice today for more information and to schedule a consultation.
Patients contemplating neck lift treatment generally have visibly loose, hanging skin in the neck region. This loose skin deformity is generally caused by several factors, including major weight loss and aging. Whatever the reason may be, sagging neck skin creates an unflattering look, which can only be corrected with skin excision and a tightening technique. If you are at a healthy weight, but you feel challenged by loose skin and wrinkles along the neck, a neck lift may be a suitable answer.
"35 years ago, I had breast implant surgery. Over the course of those years, my breasts had encapsulated causing my breasts to look totally abnormal and very hard to the touch. Fast forward, I needed them removed. Dr Jain was recommended and I couldn't be more pleased. He replaced my implants (both of which had ruptured, but I didn't know it) with the type of implant that much reduces the possibility of encapsulation and no chance of old-school rupture. The results are simply stunning. Soft, normal shaped and just the right size. The surgery was a bit complicated, but Dr. Jain's expertise was key in getting the results I wanted. Dr. Jain is gifted, and very attuned to the needs of the patient. He gave me a realistic description of what to expect and he delivered. His staff is wonderful--very attentive and supportive. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend."- P.D. / Google / Nov 20, 2018
"As a TG female it can be difficult to find someone who you trust, who is respectful, and who can really understand the importance of how you look. My mother and I interviewed surgeons from Boulder to Colorado Springs, and we both knew from the moment we met Dr. Dash that she was the only one we wanted to work with. The support staff was professional, courteous, and always greeted us with smiles. I really impressed that they were always on time, including the day of surgery, which was not the case with many of the other surgeons I interviewed. What’s most important though is the results, and I can’t put it in words how happy I am! My breasts not only look natural, but Dr. Dash was able to give me the size and shape I always wanted. I healed quickly, with minimal scaring that you can barely see 6 weeks after, and LOVE my body as a result. This has been one of the best choices of my life, and I am so glad I chose Dr. Dash! Thank you Dr. Dash!"- C.D. / Google / Feb 26, 2019

"I have been a patient of Dr. Jain and the Institute of Plastic Surgery for several years. When I decided to begin looking for a plastic surgeon, I scheduled several consultations with various surgeons in Colorado Springs. Everyone I spoke with was professional, but honestly, no one left me with the comfort I felt I needed when making, what were for me, extremely important decisions about changing my body. I then met Dr. Jain. He was not only incredibly professional but had the type of demeanor that instantly made me feel comfortable. Our initial consultation was no less than an hour. I had a lot of questions! He was patient, understood my reservations and took the time to explain all of my options in great detail. I left the office optimistic and finally ready to take the next step. Prior to surgery, he and his entire team ensured that I was comfortable with the decisions we made and that I was at ease. Post-surgery (multiple cosmetic procedures), I had numerous follow up appointments at the Institute and everyone on his team was nothing short of fantastic. I am always greeted by name and made to feel (this may sound cliché) like part of their family. They have made the entire process truly comfortable and the environment they create is so warm and welcoming. Since the initial cosmetic procedures (I couldn’t be happier with my results!), I have seen Dr. Jain and his team for fillers, Botox, BBL, and Sculptra injections. Truthfully, my face looks years younger, and more importantly, I have a much needed renewed sense of confidence and self-esteem. Meeting with Dr. Jain and choosing him as my plastic surgeon was unequivocally the right decision for me. He has been so honest and attentive and I genuinely feel his primary focus is to ensure that what he does, is right for me. I am so happy with all of my results and continue to see him and his entire team for all of my “cosmetic maintenance”. Dr. Jain is without a doubt an exceptional plastic surgeon, but what makes him exemplary is his attention and compassion as is evidenced by his interest in his patients."- A.B. / Google / Feb 21, 2019

During neck lift treatment, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed behind or in front of your ears, while another one may be placed under your chin. If isolated areas of fat exist, neck liposuction would first be performed. Next, any loose skin will be removed and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This technique is conducted until the desired shape and contour has been achieved. Even though sutures are used, scars should not be seen since they reside beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection such as Kybella may be incorporated to complement the results. In addition, other nonsurgical options can help the surface, such as a chemical peel or laser skin resurfacing, to produce a younger-looking and glowing appearance.
What to Expect
After a neck lift treatment, there will likely be some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these effects will fade after some healing time has passed. You should rest and avoid strenuous activity for 2 – 3 weeks to assist in the recovery. While recovering, button tops or loose-fitting clothing is ideal. You should notice visible results almost immediately. In addition, it has been said that neck lift surgery can make one of the biggest impacts on an individual's profile, shaving years off your appearance.
