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
"I love my new neck! I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed! - I love Dr. Jain and his staff! Dr. Jain tells you the truth about what he can do for you. I have had other doctors who promised what they would do and how I would look and it did not turn out that way. I am so happy with the procedure Dr. Jain did for me. He was very kind and honest with me. If you need a procedure done I recommend Dr. Jain. You will not be disappointed!"- W. / RealSelf / Dec 20, 2019
"Dr. Dash is Amazing!!!! - I had my implant exchange a few hours ago and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Dash. She is the most personable doctor I have ever met. The entire procedure went smoothly and I have very minimal discomfort. She listened to my concerns and I felt 1000% comfortable in her care."- S. / RealSelf / Sep 23, 2019
"Dr Jain is amazing. My daughter has a birth mark on her face. I did a lot of research and took my daughter in for the consult. He made my very anxious/nervous daughter & I feel at ease. He did an amazing job. We won't see the final results till after hopefully only 1 more procedure."- K.N. / Facebook / Jul 10, 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.
