The skin and muscles of the neck are very susceptible to loss of elasticity with age. Accumulated fat deposits in this region can also accentuate loose skin, adding years to one’s appearance. A skillfully performed neck lift can dramatically improve these issues.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that gets rid of signs of aging, saggy skin and saggy jowls in the neck.
Dr. Asaria's neck lift in Toronto can be tailored to address a number of different problems including loose skin, lax muscles and excess fat. By properly tightening the muscle base below the skin, a youthful and natural look can be achieved.
There are several methods that can be used to perform a neck lift. Due to differences in the way men and woman age, the approach used may be slightly different for each. Dr. Asaria will work with you to determine which method is best suited to you, your skin type and the issues you want to resolve.
A neck lift can be performed alone or in conjunction with a conventional facelift. Many patients also elect to undergo other procedures, such as blepharoplasty, at the same time, to enhance their facial rejuvenation and minimize overall downtime.
The best way to determine whether a surgeon is capable of giving you the results you desire is to view his past work and results.

Recovery from a neck lift requires about two to three weeks, depending upon the extent of your procedure. Initially, it is normal for your neck to feel tight, and to experience some bruising and swelling, which fades in about two weeks.
Your stitches will be removed in about five to ten days, as every patient heals at a slightly different rate. If you plan to attend any social events, it is advised that you set aside about three weeks prior to the event.
You will be given full aftercare instructions, and we will meet with you several times in follow-up appointments. We are committed to our patients at every phase of their journey to a more attractive appearance, including during recovery, and are always available to assist you.
A facelift concentrates on the facial skin, lifting it to a more youthful position, smoothing lines, creases, and addressing jowls. A neck lift is performed on the neck and beneath the chin.
A neck lift will remove excess hanging skin from the neck and jawline, reduce the appearance of unsightly vertical neck bands, restore definition at the jawline, and smooth lines and wrinkles on the neck.
Neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Incisions for neck lift surgery are placed behind the ears. This allows any scars that may result from your neck lift surgery to be well concealed once healed.
Each surgery is unique and will be tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient. Each person is different, and a custom neck lift surgery can require between two and five hours.
Like all surgical procedures, there will be some pain following your neck lift surgery. Your surgeon will provide you with a prescription for pain medication, so you are comfortable in the early stages of healing.
Each patient responds to neck lift surgery differently so recovery times following this type of surgery can vary. In general, patients are able to return to work within one to two weeks following neck lift surgery.
You may resume gentle cardiovascular exercise approximately one to two weeks following your neck lift surgery. More vigorous types of exercise can begin once our plastic surgeon tells you it is safe – generally within three weeks.
The results of your neck lift surgery are long lasting. As with all cosmetic procedures, we cannot stop the clock on the aging process. We can, however, restore a far more youthful look with neck lift surgery as the sagging skin and fat, or vertical neck bands, are resolved.
Yes! A neck lift is frequently combined with a facelift, eyelid lift, brow lift, dermal fillers, or laser skin resurfacing for a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
