Neck Lift [Cervicoplasty]

A neck lift can smooth out the lower portions of your face and neck to tighten skin that has lost its elasticity, which often gives the “turkey waddle” and “double chin” appearance, and the redundancies of "band lines" in the neck that can be troubling to many people.

A neck lift will tighten your neck and the area beneath your chin by:
  • Removing fatty deposits that cause a double chin
  • Removing extra, sagging skin
  • Improving elasticity in the lower face or neck
At the Yale Cosmetic Surgery Center, we help give you back a more youthful and more slender appearance by removing the sagging skin and fat deposits of your lower face and neck. We strive to use only the most advanced and safest surgical techniques available.

During your private consultation, we will discuss your goals, describe different options best suited for you, and provide a recommended course of treatment. We will also make sure that you understand and feel comfortable with what to expect before, during, and after your surgery. With 3D imaging technology, our surgeons can simulate the proposed outcome of a neck lift, so that you can see the results before the surgical process. It also allows us to make any adjustments to discrepancies in the surgical plan.

What To Expect:

A neck lift can be done under local or general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Once you have healed, you will have a more slender appearance in your neck and under your chin, your skin will be tighter, and your lower face and neck will have a more youthful look.
