Neck Lift in Houston, TX
Dr. Joseph Perlman offers neck lifts to patients throughout Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, Baytown, and the surrounding areas.
What Is a Neck Lift?
For many of us, the neck begins to show age faster than the whole face. Jowls can form from fatty deposits at the jaw line and laxity in the muscles. The neck muscles may begin to separate and hang, creating “bands.” Even the skin may droop, resulting in the “turkey wattle” look. If you are experiencing any of these problems, then you may want to consider a neck lift.
Sometimes, it isn’t age that determines the need for a neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty. Other reasons people choose a neck lift in Texas is because they have lost considerable weight or have a hereditary feature they would like to remedy. In fact, many younger people undergo neck lifts.
To find out if a neck lift can help you, please contact Dr. Joseph M. Perlman at the Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre in Spring. He has a reputation in the Houston area for providing quality, conscientious care. He and his staff have been instrumental in the neck lifts of thousands of men and women from Spring, The Woodlands, and other surrounding locales.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift?
Most men and women who undergo a neck lift have sagging skin and excess fat in their lower cheeks, jaw line, and neck. They may also be unhappy with a poorly defined jaw line. With a neck lift, patients can achieve the following:
- A sharper and better-defined jaw line
- Improved neck and chin angle
- Less tired look with more youthful appearance
Although a neck lift can be effective at giving your neck a tighter appearance, it will not treat lines around the mouth nor will it improve skin surface defects and discoloration.
What Is the Process for a Neck Lift?
When you undergo a neck lift, you will usually be under general anesthesia. The procedure, which can take two to three hours, starts with small incisions at the ear. Your neck lift surgeon will raise the skin and fat away from the underlying muscles, then pull the skin up, so all the creases and folds are minimized. The final step is the removal of the excess skin.
Many times patients only need a neck lift rather than a full facelift. However, when a facelift is chosen, and a neck lift is included, these two together can complete the rejuvenation package. In fact, a neck lift may be performed in conjunction with a variety of procedures, including liposuction and brow lift.
The extent of your neck lift will depend on how much change you want in your appearance. By carefully listening to your concerns and objectives, Dr. Perlman will help you decide whether you should have additional procedures with your neck lift.
What Does Recovery Entail After a Neck Lift?
Your doctor may require you to wear a compression garment around the lower face and neck for about a week after your neck lift. It is common to feel bruising and swelling for a few weeks. Another side effect for some neck lift patients is stiffness in the neck and some difficulty swallowing. You can typically return to work within two weeks.

Can I See Neck Lift Before and After Photos?
Often, many men and women who have undergone neck lifts are thought to have “lost a lot of weight” or “toned up,” rather than having had surgery. These kinds of results are illustrated in various neck lift before and after pictures. The images demonstrate how the procedure has changed the appearances of patients throughout the Houston area, including Spring and The Woodlands. When you meet with Dr. Perlman, you will get the chance to see his neck lift before and after photos, which will help you ascertain what the surgery can do for you.
