Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery corrects loose skin and vertical bands on the neck as well as sagging jowls along the jawline. This procedure performed by Dr. Tran in Westminster can remove excess fat, tighten the underlying neck muscle, and eliminate excess skin to improve the contour of the neck and jawline and create a more youthful profile.

The Benefits of a Neck Lift

Removes Excess Fat Deposits

Displaced fat in the neck, along the jawline, and on the underside of the chin is removed to produce a slender and better defined lower face and neck.

Eliminates a “Turkey Neck”

Loose, sagging skin is tightened to eliminate a “turkey neck” and reveal smooth, wrinkle-free neck contours.

Defines Your Jawline

A sagging jawline or a jaw that blends in with the neck can be corrected to provide a chiseled jawline that distinctly separates your lower face from your neck.

Corrects Muscle Banding in the Neck

Vertical bands on the neck caused by a stretched platysma muscle are corrected as the muscle is tightened, and natural, youthful results are achieved.

How do I know when I’m ready for a neck lift?

If you would like to experience the benefits of a neck lift, now might be the right time if you:

  • Are unhappy with your jowls or the appearance of a “turkey neck”
  • Have been unable to obtain satisfying results from nonsurgical treatments
  • Are in good overall health

Types of Neck Lifts

Full Neck Lift

During a full neck lift procedure, incisions are made under the chin and behind the ears. The platysma muscle is tightened (platysmaplasty), excess fat is removed, and the tissues are repositioned before excess skin is carefully trimmed away. The new contouring is secured with sutures, and the incisions are closed.


  • An undefined jawline (jowls)
  • Neck bands
  • Sagging and wrinkled skin
  • Displaced fat

Liposuction Neck Lift

Patients with good skin quality and whose main signs of aging in the neck are due to excess or displaced fat can benefit from liposuction alone. Small, inconspicuously placed incisions are used to suction out fat through a cannula (thin, hollow tube).


  • Fat along the jawline
  • Displaced fat that hangs in the neck
  • A double chin
