The jaw line, jowls and neck undergo certain inevitable facial aging changes. As we age there is a loss of tone in the facial support muscles that results in loose saggy skin. There are often many irregularities in the skin that must be reversed in order to obtain a beautiful, attractive neck. The neck lift involves adequate elevation and lifting of the skin of the jowls, jaw line and neck.

Your neck lift will be complimented with a recommendation for our medical grade Home Skin Care which will help support and enhance your results.

Procedure Details

The procedure is done on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. The procedure requires an incision under the chin where the fat is removed, muscles are tightened, and the loose skin is removed – all depending on individual findings.

After Care Instructions

Patients stay overnight at the SpaMedica Plastic Surgery facility and go home the next day. There is a special chin and neck wrap that helps support the healing. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication.Swelling and bruising disappear over approximately 2 weeks and the neck lift aesthetic results start to look good. The final result is evident in 1-3 months.

Did You Know?

Dr. Mulholland helped engineer and pioneer several of the necklift procedures that are currently popular in facial rejuvenation surgery. The use of Radiofrequency energy to melt the under chin fat, or laser energy supporting sutures and threads to support and correct neck bands has been very successful and can be combined with BOTOX Injectable.

Dr. Mulholland developed many of the sub dermal laser and Radiofrequency heating techniques that give the skin 10% to 20% contraction and will minimize the risk of you having loose or lax skin after the necklift procedure. Most necklifts can be performed under local anesthesia or local and IV sedation and there is usually no need to have a general anesthetic. The procedure may last between 2-3 hours depending upon the number of ancillary procedures performed. The risks of complication are minimal and the overall clinical results of a necklift are very predictable and in Dr. Mulholland’s hands are natural and attractive.

Dr. Stephen Mulholland has been the recipient of many awards and has been named by “Toronto Life”, “Flare” and in “Toronto Fashion” as one of Toronto’s best neck and face lift surgeons. Dr. Mulholland has taught well over 5,000 physicians the techniques of youthful, comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Your SpaMedica necklift may be combined with non-surgical treatments such as MyoFacials, eMatrix treatments, FotoFacial® treatments and skin care peels to enhance your results and to maintain your beautiful and youthful neck.
