Summary: You no longer have to feel bad about your neck with the help of an amazing neck lift surgery. Using only small incisions, this outpatient procedure is usually accomplished in a day and, after a few hours recovery, you’re sent home to enjoy your results.


Getting it Write

There is a wonderful book by the famous, late filmmaker and author Nora Ephron called, I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman. For those of us who are beginning to notice your aging, we probably relate to the title all too well. As we get older, we lose volume in our skin everywhere, and elasticity goes by the way-side, causing drooping, sagging, and wrinkles. One of the first places this is apparent is on the neck. If you feel like Ephron did, know that there is hope with neck lift surgery.

Come Out From Hiding

The amazing surgeons at East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery see many, many cases of neck lifts every year. In fact, New Jersey neck lifts are growing in popularity every year. This may be because of the sentiment that Nora Ephron expressed in her book involving the frustrations caused by an aging neck. If someone you know has been hiding under turtlenecks for too long, send them the link to this article so that they too can be informed.

Putting it Out There

A neck lift is commonly an outpatient surgery, performed with general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation. Once the procedure is over, after a few hours of recovery, you will be permitted to go home. Doesn’t sound that bad, does it? The truth is neck lift surgery gets right to the point. Small incisions are made below the chin or around the ears, the skin is tightened and repositioned, and excess skin is removed. There are always exceptions, and in some cases you may need excess fat removed, but the basics are pretty much the same. Your plastic surgeon will follow the above steps while improving the look of your neck.

The Best Neck Lift Candidates

  • You are in good physical condition
  • You are bothered by signs of aging in your neck
  • Your neck has hanging skin causing a “turkey wattle” appearance
