What Is a Central Neck Lift?

A central neck lift is a surgical procedure intended to improve the jawline for those with a prominent double chin or poorly defined neckline. Dr. Sean Delaney and Dr. Russell Kridel are the few surgeons in Houston, TX, performing this specialized neck lift. This procedure tightens the central section under your chin by removing the excess fat and tightening the underlying musculature to produce a smoother, natural neckline. Ideal candidates for a central neck lift are individuals in their 20s to 40s with a genetic predisposition for a double chin or a poorly defined jawline and good skin elasticity. The central neck lift is frequently combined with other procedures, such as chin augmentation and FaceTite/AccuTite radiofrequency skin tightening. A facelift procedure may be more appropriate for those with more facial and neck skin laxity.

How Is a Neck Lift Performed?

During a neck lift procedure, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed in the crease under your chin.  Two additional small incisions are placed behind each earlobe. Liposuction is performed initially through these incisions to sculpt the jawline. There is deeper fat in the midline that liposuction alone cannot address and this will be assessed and removed directly. Finally, your surgeon will modify the platysma muscle under your chin to improve neckline defintion. The procedure typically takes 1 to 1.5 hours.  

Recovery

Immediately after surgery, patients can begin to see a more defined jawline with double chins reduced. A compressive wrap is placed for the first night after surgery. One the day after the procedure, you will be switched over to a facial sling, which you will wear all day for 1 week and in the evenings only for another week. It takes about a full week for the bruising and swelling to dissipate and can take several weeks for the final results to appear. There will be faint scars where the incision were made, but these are very small and will fade over time. After five days, you can return to work.
