What is a neck lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to achieve a refined, sculpted appearance. As we age, our skin and muscle bands become lax, fat deposits develop underneath the jaw and chin, and wrinkles form, affecting the appearance of the neck. During a neck lift, Dr. Courtney removes the unnecessary tissue, extracts fat deposits, and repositions the skin in a way that creates a natural, youthful look to your neck.

Results speak for themselves.

Neck lift benefits

Dr. Courtney aims to provide his patients with several distinct benefits when he plans a neck lift procedure:

  • A more contoured neck, jaw, and chin
  • Tighter and more youthful-looking skin and tissues of the lower face and neck
  • A more symmetrical, youthful profile to complement your facial features
  • Enhanced confidence and self-image

You can also choose to combine your neck lift with other procedures, such as a facelift, brow lift, or eyelid lift, to experience genuinely comprehensive rejuvenation for your entire profile. Combined procedures have the advantage of a single recovery period and less cost both of which can make a difference for you.

Is a neck lift right for me?

Although we wish we could help everyone pursue their aesthetic goals with a neck lift, we value patient safety above all else. If you meet the following essential criteria, you are a likely candidate and should schedule your private consultation with Dr. Courtney right away:

  • You are generally healthy
  • You have a realistic idea of what a neck lift is and what it can do for you
  • The natural signs of aging have begun to set in, and a neck lift will directly benefit you
  • You have lax skin, fat, or muscle tissue that causes you emotional or mental distress or lack of confidence
  • You do not smoke or drink excessively

If you meet these criteria, we encourage you to speak with Dr. Courtney and our team in a consultation to get your questions answered and schedule your neck lift. We also offer a range of non-surgical options that may work for you.

Real Patient

Your consultation with Dr. Courtney

Your initial consultation with Dr. Courtney will be a private, sit-down meeting where you have the time and freedom to get all your questions answered. Dr. Courtney focuses his attention on you and evaluates both your aesthetic goals and current physiology so that he can create an accurate, effective surgical plan to make your cosmetic goals a reality. Dr. Courtney goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and never pressured. He prides himself on being able to understand what patients want and does his best to create the best plan for your individual needs.

Once he has a basic understanding of what you are looking to achieve, he will use the advanced Vectra XT 3D Imaging system to give you a real-world look at the results a neck lift can accomplish.

Neck lift: The procedure


Since a neck lift is an invasive surgical procedure, our board-certified anesthesiologist will carefully make sure you are appropriately sedated before the surgery begins.

Creating the Incision

The incision sizes will depend on the extent of your operation, and Dr. Courtney will place them carefully in positions that leave behind barely-visible scarring. Typically, this is a small incision under the chin and an incision in the hairline. Men typically only have one under the chin.


Dr. Courtney will remove or sculpt fat and skin, and reposition skin as needed. It is here where Dr. Courtney’s skill of the art of neck surgery comes into play.

Closing the incision

Once he has completed the procedure, he will close your incisions using advanced techniques that minimize scarring. He will then wrap your neck and chin with a compression bandage and put you in recovery for a few hours.

Your neck lift results

While you will see some initial results as soon as the bandage comes off, your final results will appear gradually as the swelling and bruising subside. Dr. Courtney will provide you with a comprehensive list of post-operative instructions to ensure you heal quickly and correctly for the best results possible.
