What Is A Neck Lift?
Do you wear scarves or turtlenecks the whole year to conceal the loose flaps of skin on your neck? Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen offers neck lift surgery to his Winchester and Shenandoah Valley patients to improve the appearance of an aging neck. This facial surgery tightens the area under your chin and along the neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By surgically excising the loose skin and fat while introducing a tightening method to produce a smoother, natural neckline, this procedure at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa can provide dramatic enhancements to your profile.

What Can I Expect from My Neck Lift?
Before your neck lift, Dr. Karen will meet with you to review your goals, desires, and to help you create a custom treatment plan for your neck lift. To help you stay comfortable, general anesthesia is used. The incision point is placed around your ears while another one may be placed beneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, liposuction would be completed first. Following that, any sagging, loose, or hanging skin will be removed and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is performed until the desired shape has been reached. Even though sutures are used to close the incision, scars should not be noticeable since they reside beneath your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection, such as KYBELLA, may be incorporated to complement the results. Also, other nonsurgical options can help the skin's surface, such as a chemical peel, to create a vibrantly glowing appearance. You will likely experience some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort after your treatment, but these effects will fade with each passing day. You should rest and avoid exercise or strenuous activity for several weeks to assist in a safe recovery.
Neck Lift FAQ
How much does a neck lift cost?
The cost of your neck lift can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Karen. Once he has developed your personal treatment plan, he can estimate prices for the anesthesia, facility, and more. To help make your neck lift affordable, Exclusively Faces accepts several payments methods, plus we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Surgery is the only way to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it hangs or droops. While there are several nonsurgical skin tightening treatments that can give you some improvements, neck lift surgery is the most effective solution to redefine and smooth your neckline. A popular new minimally invasive treatment called KYBELLA targets fat in the upper neck, which causes a double chin; however, it doesn't correct excess skin.
Will I have visible scars?
A neck lift does require one incision under the chin as well as two more near the ears. However, these are made — so they are difficult for others to see. Dr. Karen makes every effort during your surgery to minimize visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will encourage your incisions to heal properly — so they are thin and flat.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your initial consultation, you can bring up that you are thinking about another surgery, such as a facelift or a chin implant, along with a neck lift. It is normal for two or more face surgeries to be combined to get your best results. If you have any concerns about a weak chin or undefined jawline, tell Dr. Karen so he can create a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your concerns and goals, you might consider combining a neck lift with liposuction. This may help if you have both excess skin and fat pockets in your neck. Dr. Karen will help you decide whether a lift, liposuction, or both should be part of your surgical plan during your consultation.
