The neck is probably the second most visible portion of
a person’s body, right after the face, and is arguably
the second place we begin to show our age (after the
eyes). There are several reasons for this. Some people’s
necks may seem too fleshy, or the neck may lack
definition. Perhaps because of being overweight, the
neck may be too large compared to the face. Even after
extensive weight loss, excessive fat typically remains
in the neck and in the face, and persistent sagging skin
can remain unsightly and embarrassing.
The Neck Lift Procedure
A neck lift is a procedure designed to give better
definition to the neck line and the jaw line, lessen
horizontal creases and wrinkling, diminish vertical
banding, and relieve the dreaded “turkey-wattle” which
makes us look old before our time. It is an extremely
versatile procedure that improves the appearance of the
neck, helping those showing the earliest signs of aging,
as well as older patients with more pronounced changes.
Regardless why the neck appears less than “perfect”, a
neck lift can usually result in vast improvement. I find
the procedure incredibly versatile for both young adults
and older people because it can so easily be combined
with other procedures such as facelift, brow lift,
mid face or cheek lift, and eyelid surgery for maximal
A Neck Lift Can Result In A Lifestyle Change
Adults between the ages of 30 and 70 often become
self-conscious about excess skin and fat in their neck.
During a neck lift, excess fat and skin can be removed.
Unsightly vertical bands can be divided and markedly
reduced. Sections of skin and fat are trimmed and lifted
into place. The lifted skin can be contoured to create a
pleasing neck line and jaw line.
A neck lift can often become a lifestyle altering
procedure. It can trick people into thinking you’ve lost
a lot of weight. Most commonly, people won’t even notice
that your neck muscles, fat, and skin have been
surgically improved, but they may comment about how
refreshed and how youthful you are looking. This is
because the incisions are so small and are placed within
normal skin creases.
Dr. Kass and Suture
Dr. Kass specializes in neck re-contouring with suture
suspension and liposuction. He has found this procedure
is often invaluable in patients who would otherwise be
early candidates for a facelift.

and After Photos
These patients have a
poorly defined neck and an underdevelopedangle between
the neck and the jaw. The suture suspension technique is
minimally invasive, and allows for a defined neck and
jaw line contour and a well-developed angle while
avoiding larger incisions and invasive dissections. This
means a faster recovery for you.
A neck lift is a practically painless outpatient
surgical procedure. It can take years off of your
appearance, and looking younger will almost certainly
make you feel better about yourself.
