Neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. Depending on your unique needs, Dr. Ardesh may perform a traditional or a limited incision neck lift.

  • Traditional neck lift: Incisions may begin in the hairline at the sideburn level and continue around the ears to the hairline in the back. Underlying tissues are repositioned, fat is redistributed, and the neck muscles are tightened, after which the skin is re-draped, excess skin is removed, and the incisions are closed with sutures or skin adhesives. A separate incision under the chin may be required for liposuction and muscle repair in this area.
  • Limited incision neck lift: This technique may involve incisions only around the ear. If you are a good candidate, a limited incision neck lift can produce excellent results with shorter incisions.
