The Procedure

The neck lift is done under general anesthesia and will last between two and three hours. To begin, one of our expert Rockford neck lift plastic surgeons will create small incisions behind the ears and beneath the chin.

Through those discreet openings, they will remove excess fat, tighten lax muscles, and remove a small portion of the platysma muscle. In some cases, they will also perform an ultra-precise liposuction procedure to remove unwanted fat and contour the area. Once the underlying structures have been reshaped, the surgeon will drape your skin over your new contours, trim away any excess tissue, and carefully close the incisions with sutures.


You may be ready for a neck lift if you have:

  • Sun damaged neck skin
  • Excess fat beneath the chin
  • Loose, aging and/or sagging neck skin
  • Heavy jowls

In general, the best neck lift candidates are men and women who are between 40 and 80 years of age. In addition, your skin should feature some elasticity so that it can tolerate the stretching that is associated with the procedure.

The Results

After a neck lift Rockford patients' new, streamlined neck will emerge gradually. In general, you can expect your optimal results to become apparent within six months. Thanks to our careful placement of the incisions, you should have very few post-surgical scars.

The results of a neck lift are very long-lasting. Although every patient is unique, most of our clients enjoy their new contours for up to ten years.

The Recovery

Most of our patients need to take between one and two weeks off from work following their neck lift. The first few days will be spent almost entirely in bed. During the initial recovery period, we recommend having a friend or family member stay with you to help out around the house.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you heal:

  • Wear loose-fitting clothes to avoid irritating the neck area
  • Avoid strenuous activity, exercise and heavy lifting for a few weeks
  • Take your pain medication as prescribed to keep discomfort at bay
  • Bruising and swelling will dissipate within a couple of weeks
