Neck Lift


Neck lift procedures help you to achieve the neckline which you desire when extra skin, loose muscle and extra fatty tissue form in the neck area. These are very often familial characteristics. In both of the examples shown above, excess skin and redundant fatty tissue has been removed in order to produce a more youthful contour of the neck. Incisions are placed in the most inconspicuous locations so that for the most part, these are hidden from view. Neck lift operations are usually conducted as an outpatient: you wont have to spend overnight as long as your general health is stable.

The neck can appear to be a double chin. Many of his patients tell Dr. Grenga that “My mother (or father) had this same neck when she/he was my age”. Neck lift can help to restores a more youthful appearance to the aging neck.

In certain instances, Dr. Grenga removes the excess fatty tissue with liposuction. This results in virtually no visible scar and  a very short recovery period. In the situation where there is a larger amount of redundant fatty tissue or the skin is really loose, removal of these by incision under the chin and hidden around the ear creases is required. This might mean combining a necklift with a mini-facelift or even a traditional full facelift.

When combined with facelift, or as a sole procedure, neck lift can help you obtain a more youthful neck line, eliminate or reduce wrinkles in the front of your neck and stop collar chafe for men who must wear buttoned collars. When prominent bands are found on the front of the neck, these are trimmed and smoothed at the same time.

Necklift is the main procedure for rejuvenating the neck and lower face. In some instances, Dr. Grenga will combine necklift with other procedures, such as eyelid tuck, browlift for the forehead wrinkles, and even other contouring procedures such as tummy tuck.

The neck lift procedure is suited for treating loose skin and/or redundant collections of fatty tissue. The examples shown on the left of each pair of photos possesses elements of both but the loose skin is the predominant feature of the aging neck. After necklift, shown on the right in each pair, depicts the tightening and sculpting that neck lift achieved.

Neck lift is well-suited for producing a more youthful neck by addressing loose skin which develops after weight loss. Normal aging produces loss of elastic tone and redistributes fatty tissue.

  • Dr. Grenga,

    When I first considered breast enlargement, I wasn't sure that it was the thing for me. I just wanted to restore the breasts that I had before bearing my two children.

    After the kids came, I gradually lost about two cup sizes. Thanks to you, I have been pleased to have my figure back. This has made me very glad that I made the decision to go ahead with the operation.

    I feel now that I wished that I had my breast reduction operation a long time ago. I cannot believe that I waited so long for this and suffered for so many years. I feel so much better and have enjoyed exercising again because my back and breasts no longer hurt. My clothes fit so much better as well. You were right-it has made a remarkable difference in my appearance but I want you to know that it has made a difference in my outlook as well. I feel years younger!
