What can a neck lift accomplish?
A well-done neck lift can rejuvenate your entire appearance. When performed by a top plastic surgeon like Dr. Ulysses Scarpidis, the procedure can:
- Sculpt a firmer, younger-looking neck.
- Reduce wrinkles, fine lines and folds.
- Smooth vertical bands.
- Eliminate excess skin.
- Improve the appearance of a “turkey wattle” neck.
- Restore a youthful contour to your jawline.
Your customized neck lift
Because your anatomy, skin quality and signs of aging are unique, your neck lift will be entirely customized based on your needs. Dr. Scarpidis is proud to offer a variety of procedures designed to rejuvenate and refresh the neck, and he will work closely with you to determine which custom blend of treatments is in your best interest and will accomplish the youthful overall look you desire.
For younger patients with moderate signs of aging, sagging skin and/or a double chin, Dr. Scarpidis may recommend the Smartlipo Laser Liposuction Neck Lift. Using this minimally-invasive approach, he’s able to remove among the most stubborn pockets of fat in the delicate neck area, while firming and tightening the skin. This procedure also offers a number of appealing benefits, including a swift recovery and a reduced risk of complications when compared to the other options. Plus, it can be performed in the comfort of Dr. Scarpidis’ New York office – making it a convenient solution for busy individuals.
Mini Neck Lift
The mini neck lift is the ideal option for younger patients who want to address the very first signs of aging on the neck and jawline. Much less invasive than the traditional neck lift, a mini neck lift promotes a swift recovery and smaller scars that are virtually invisible once you’ve healed. It’s also a terrific option for patients who struggle with sagging skin and jowls. However, because the procedure doesn’t correct the underlying muscles that contribute to neck bands and a “turkey wattle” appearance, it’s not the right procedure for patients who suffer from those specific signs of aging.
Full Neck Lift
Using the full neck lift approach, Dr. Scarpidis is able to reduce virtually all signs of aging that can impact the neck area – including bands, sagging skin and excess fat. Through well-hidden incisions underneath the chin or behind the ears, he will tighten the underlying muscles, elevate aging skin and sculpt new and youthful contours. It’s the ideal option for patients who require an aggressive treatment to combat more advanced signs of aging – and it produces the most dramatic and longest-lasting results.

Are you a candidate for a neck lift?
To be considered an ideal candidate for a neck lift, you should be between 40 and 80 years of age, and want to reverse the signs of aging that commonly affect the neck area, such as jowls, a heavy chin and wrinkled skin. Your skin should also feature a decent amount of elasticity so it can easily conform to the new contours created by Dr. Scarpidis. And finally, you should be in good overall health, possess realistic expectations for surgery and be able to stay home from work and your daily routine for at least a week as you recover.
