Why a neck lift?
One of the first places to show the signs of aging is the neck.
Loose skin, extra fat and sagging muscles and salivary glands can add years to one’s appearance.

By removing excess skin and unwanted fat from the neck, as well as tightening up neck muscles and salivary glands, Dr. Repta's Scottsdale neck lift is able to dramatically rejuvenate a patient's appearance.

Neck lift procedure
The neck lift is a relatively straightforward procedure that typically takes about two to three hours.
The type of anesthesia administered during the procedure depends largely on the preferences of the patient and the surgeon. Many patients are able to receive local anesthesia combined with a sedative—however, some choose to be unconscious during the procedure and opt for general anesthesia.
Each neck lift varies according to the unique needs and goals of each individual patient. Some patients achieve their desired result through removal of excess neck skin alone.
Often, full correction of all of the signs of neck aging requires not only removal of excess skin, but also tightening of underlying structures such as muscle and salivary glands.
Candidates for neck lift surgery
If you are interested in receiving a neck lift and have any of the following issues you wish to correct, you may be a good candidate for neck lift surgery.
- Sun damaged neck skin
- Double or triple chin
- Turkey neck (loose or saggy skin on the neck)
- Jowls (fat or too much skin under the jaws)
- Excess fat anywhere on the neck
- Loose neck muscles
- Large or drooping salivary glands
Recovery & Results
Recovery after a necklift surgery generally takes one to two weeks for most patients.
Some bruising and swelling is normal and typically subsides after about one week.
Within the first week you will begin to see the results as a rejuvenated, more youthful neck starts to set in. Neck lift results typically improve over time, even after you have healed from surgery.
Final results are usually achieved within six months of the surgery and last between five and ten years.
Post-surgical scarring is very minimal, as the incisions are made behind the ears and under the chin making them virtually unnoticeable. The final outcome is a naturally refreshed and more youthful looking neck.
