Is a Neck Lift Right for You?

While we all wish we could look young and vibrant forever, the outward signs of aging can appear sooner in some areas than in others. For example, the skin on your neck is more vulnerable to the effects of sun damage, pollution, and other environmental factors than other parts of your body. Additionally, you may have a skincare routine that lavishes attention on your face but neglects your neck. As your skin loses elasticity and firmness, your neck can experience changes you wish you could reverse.

Cosmetic Issues Associated with an Aging Neck

As you get older, your body’s collagen and elastin production will naturally decline, causing your skin to lose structure and firmness. Prominent neck banding can appear, and you can develop jowls, a double chin, or a “turkey wattle.”


These issues are nearly impossible to hide unless you commit to wearing a turtleneck or scarves all year long – which is impractical, especially in Texas. With neck lift surgery performed by a Double Board-Certified, fellowship-trained surgeon, you can enjoy smoother, younger-looking neck skin and an improved profile.

Top 5 Benefits of Neck Lift Surgery

A customized neck lift by Dr. Yula Indeyeva can simultaneously resolve multiple issues. Dr. Indeyeva has earned Double Board-Certified in head and neck surgery and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, making her uniquely qualified to perform this procedure. Here are five ways a neck lift can help you.

1. A More Defined Chin and Jawline

A neck lift is a rejuvenating surgery that improves signs of aging in the jawline and neck. Dr. Indeyeva removes unwanted fat that creates the appearance of a double chin, tightens and lifts the muscles that cause the appearance of banding, and trims away excess skin. Your results will include a more pronounced line of demarcation between your chin and neck. After this surgery, your neckline will look longer and more elegant.

2. Delayed Aging

A neck lift performed by a talented surgeon can help turn back the hands of time. You’ll notice an improvement shortly after surgery, and you’ll continue to reap the benefits of a more youthful-looking neck even as you continue to age. Though nothing can halt the natural aging process, you’ll look younger than your peers who have not had a neck lift procedure.

3. Improved Self-Confidence

If you love the way you look, your self-esteem will soar to new heights. Doing something uplifting specifically for yourself can improve your emotional resilience, and once your outward appearance matches your internal vibrancy, you may find more opportunities in your personal and professional life.

4. Minimal Scars 

While small incisions are necessary to complete a neck lift, Dr. Indeyeva will take care to make them in concealed locations under your chin and behind your ears. Once fully healed, scars will be virtually invisible, ensuring your surgical results are as discreet as you want them to be.

5. Fully Customizable

At Facial Plastic Surgery of Austin, Dr. Indeyeva will tailor a surgical plan specifically for you and your goals. For example, you may wish to combine your neck lift with complementary procedures such as a facelift, skin resurfacing, or non-surgical eye rejuvenation for a comprehensive enhancement that’s as unique as you are.
