Neck Lift


A neck lift, medically known as lower rhytidectomy, methodically addresses aging signs in the neck and jawline area, offering a sophisticated solution to restore youthful contours. This surgical procedure, expertly performed by Dr. Jason Champagne, is designed to remove excess skin, reduce fat accumulation, and tighten underlying muscles, effectively enhancing the neck’s appearance and defining the jawline. Ideal for individuals experiencing skin laxity, banding in the neck, or a double chin due to aging, weight changes, or hereditary predispositions, the neck lift procedure meticulously reshapes the lower face’s structure. By focusing on these specific areas, Dr. Champagne achieves a natural, rejuvenated look that harmonizes with the patient’s facial features, providing a discreet yet transformative outcome. The procedure underscores a commitment to refined and enduring aesthetic enhancements, prioritizing patient well-being and satisfaction through every step of the recovery process.

Refining Jawline and Neck Aesthetics

This surgery can accompany a lower facelift or stand alone, specifically addressing individuals who have a youthful facial appearance but struggle with a sagging or bulky neck. The neck lift, as conducted by Dr. Champagne, often includes liposuction to eliminate excess fat, thereby refining the neck’s contour. This method is effective in reducing the neck “waddle” and sculpting a sharper, more defined neck angle.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Neck Lift?

  • Excess, sagging skin of the neck and under the chin.
  • Excess fat in the neck and under the chin.
  • Youthful appearing lower face (jowls, jawline, and sides of mouth).
  • Overall good health.
  • Non-smoker.

Recovery Insights

Before your surgery, you will receive a comprehensive list of medications to avoid, along with detailed preoperative and postoperative instructions. Recovery from a neck lift typically spans 2 to 4 weeks. Expect generalized neck swelling and bruising, with swelling subsiding within the first two weeks and bruising possibly lasting up to four weeks. However, makeup can help conceal it. Initially, a compressive elastic bandage is applied for 24-hour coverage for the first week, followed by nightly wear for two additional weeks. Sutures are removed in stages over seven days, and hairline clips are removed on the tenth day post-surgery. Dr. Champagne closely monitors each patient’s recovery during postoperative visits, ensuring a smooth and optimal healing experience. Most patients can resume work and normal activities within 10 days to two weeks.

Other Beneficial Procedures

Patients undergoing a neck lift might also see enhanced results with a chin implant. Additional complementary treatments can include Botox injections and laser skin resurfacing to further refine and rejuvenate the facial appearance.
