What Is A Deep Neck Lift?

A deep neck lift is a surgical technique meticulously crafted to attain a polished and contoured aesthetic. Over time, the aging process results in pronounced skin and muscle laxity, submental fat deposits, and wrinkles, all contributing to changes in the neck’s appearance. With a deep neck lift in Houston, Dr. Courtney skillfully eliminates excess tissue, addresses fat deposits, and repositions the skin, resulting in a rejuvenated and naturally youthful-looking neck.

What Are The Benefits of a Deep Neck Lift?

When Dr. Courtney curates a deep neck lift procedure, he focuses on providing his patients with a range of distinct advantages:

  • Enhanced contouring of the neck, jaw, and chin
  • Achieving tighter and more youthful skin in the lower face and neck
  • Attaining a symmetrical and youthful profile that harmonizes with facial features
  • Boosted self-confidence and improved self-image

Additionally, patients also have the option to incorporate other treatments into their deep neck lift procedure, such as facelifts, brow lifts, or eyelid lifts. This comprehensive approach ensures holistic rejuvenation of your overall profile. Opting for combined procedures offers the advantages of a streamlined recovery process and potential cost savings, contributing to a positive experience.

  • Your overall health is good
  • You hold practical understanding of the scope and potential outcomes of a deep neck lift
  • Visible signs of aging are evident, and a neck lift would notably enhance your appearance

What Age Is Best For A Deep Neck Lift?

The age limitations for a Deep Neck Lift are often influenced by a combination of individual factors and the overall goals of the procedure. While there isn't a strict age cutoff, candidates typically range from their mid-40s to 70s. Those in their mid-40s might consider this procedure to address early signs of neck aging, such as mild sagging or excess fat. As the aging process advances, individuals in their 50s and beyond might opt for a Deep Neck Lift to tackle more pronounced sagging, muscle laxity, and significant neck fat accumulation. However, the most important criterion remains the patient's overall health and motivations for seeking the procedure. A thorough consultation with a qualified surgeon is essential to determine if a Deep Neck Lift in Houston aligns with their aesthetic goals and medical considerations.

Deep Neck Lift: The Procedure


Given that a deep neck lift is a surgical procedure with significant invasiveness, our board-certified anesthesiologist will diligently ensure proper sedation for you before commencing the surgery.

Creating the incision

The size of the incisions will be determined by the scope of the procedure, with Dr. Courtney meticulously positioning them to minimize visible scarring. These incisions are usually located under the chin and within the hairline. Men usually have a single incision under the chin.


Dr. Courtney will skillfully eliminate or shape excess fat and skin, adjusting skin positioning as necessary. This is the precise juncture where Dr. Courtney's mastery of neck surgery techniques is prominently displayed.

Closing the incision

Upon completing the procedure, he will employ sophisticated methods to close the incisions, aiming to minimize scarring. A compression bandage will be delicately wrapped around your neck and chin, followed by a period of recovery lasting a few hours.
