Neck Lift

Excess fat and sagging skin on the neck can make you look older than you feel and cause feelings of embarrassment.

A neck lift procedure can use surgical techniques and neck liposuction to reduce these signs of aging and smooth the contours of the neck.

Azita Madjidi, M.D., serving patients throughout Houston, TX, can help you achieve a more youthful appearance with a neck lift.

What Is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a kind of plastic surgery that can provide patients with a beautiful neck contour that looks more youthful. It's typically used in a patient who is satisfied with the way their upper face looks but wants to improve the appearance of their neck, chin, and jawline.

A neck lift can provide you with a variety of benefits, including:

  • A neck with a more attractive contour
  • A more defined jawline
  • Reduced jowls
  • A slimmer chin
  • Boosted self-confidence

I went to Dr. Madjidi for a consult. I cannot say enough good things about her! I had a bad experience during a consult with a previous surgeon so I was nervous, but Dr. Madjidi made me feel incredibly safe and heard! She took her time to explain to me why she recommended certain approaches and answered every question I had thoroughly.

Exploring Candidacy for Neck Lift Surgery

Before you can undergo neck lift surgery, Dr. Madjidi will determine your candidacy during a consultation at our Houston clinic. A good candidate for neck lift surgery is someone who:

Is in Good Health

You must be healthy enough to undergo anesthesia, liposuction, and recovery after surgery.

Has Good Skin Elasticity

There is no age limit for a neck lift, but you should have healthy skin with some elasticity so your skin can adhere to the new contours of your neck following the procedure. This will allow for the best aesthetic results.

Doesn't Use Nicotine Products

Nicotine products inhibit the body's ability to heal, increasing your risk of scarring. If you are a current smoker, you should stop for at least two weeks before and two weeks after your neck lift, but we recommend quitting altogether.

Has Reasonable Expectations

Before any type of plastic surgery, you should have a good understanding of what the procedure can and cannot accomplish. Dr. Madjidi will help you understand what you can expect from your neck lift before you commit to the procedure.

Dr. Madjidi will administer general anesthesia to put you in a sleep-like state and ensure your comfort throughout your neck lift surgery.


Your plastic surgeon will make small incisions. These incisions are usually placed under the chin but may be placed behind the ears instead. Dr. Madjidi's precise techniques will ensure that your scars are virtually undetectable.

Neck Lift

Your plastic surgeon will then lift and tighten your neck muscles.

Neck Liposuction

Liposuction may be used to remove excess fat deposits and further contour the neck.

​Position Skin

Your skin will then be positioned over the new contours of your neck. Dr. Madjidi will make any necessary alterations before closing your incisions.

Dr. Madjidi Can Also Perform a Short Scar Neck Lift

Unlike a traditional neck lift that removes excess skin, a short scar neck lift aims to improve the chin-neck angle so the existing skin can be properly positioned over the neck. This technique can be performed through a short, horizontal incision just behind the chin. Dr. Madjidi can help you explore your neck lift options during your consultation.

Maintaining Your Results

The results of your neck lift surgery can last for about 10 to 15 years. Some things you can do to prolong your results and keep your neck looking youthful include:

  • Wearing sun protection
  • Eating a healthy diet
  • Exercising regularly
  • Following a skincare routine
  • Avoiding nicotine products

It's important to remember that gravity and the natural aging process will contribute to some sagginess in your neck area over time.

Achieve Comprehensive Results Combine Your Neck Lift With Other Procedures

A neck lift can provide truly stunning results on its own, but Dr. Madjidi can also combine this treatment with a facelift, mid-facelift, brow lift, and similar procedures for comprehensive results.
