A neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty, creates a more defined jawline and a slimmer, smoother-looking neck. This surgical procedure lifts and smoothes sagging skin, removes excess fat, and tightens the platysma muscle, eliminating issues like a double chin, horizontal banding, wrinkling, and “turkey neck” to give your entire neck and jawline a more youthful appearance.
Is a neck lift right for you?
Fortunately, the neck lift is designed to help improve those very conditions and reduce the signs of aging by eliminating excess fat and tightening the tissue and muscles in key areas of your neck.
The most frequent profile of patients (both male and female) who come to the Larrabee Center for a neck lift is as follows:
- Age: 40s to 60s
- Jowls have become prominent
- Sagging skin around the neck
You may also want to consider additional facial procedures that treat loose tissue and skin laxity in other regions of the face.
"My experience at the Larrabee Center was positive from my first visit. I am so pleased to have found a Doctor with Dr. Larrabee’s skill, expertise, and caring.
I am very pleased with the results of my surgery, which was a very difficult nose reconstruction!
On all of my follow up visits, I was shown compassion and caring from Dr. Larrabee, Dr Patel, and the entire staff.
I highly recommend the Larrabee Center. They are truly trustworthy and professional.
I only wish I had found them several years ago!!" - Sharon O.

Restore a Youthful Contour to Your Neck Line
Neck lift surgery sculpts your neck by removing the folds of fat that develop in the jowls, and tightening the underlying neck muscles that have begun to lose resiliency. In this way, your neck’s contours are revitalized, giving you clean lines and a youthful-looking appearance.
The truth of the matter is that a neck lift only treats signs of aging around the neck and jaw. As such, performing it at the same time as a facelift or eyelid surgery can be key to sending you home with rejuvenated results that are more balanced than you’d get from a single procedure. During your private consultation, Dr. Larrabee will talk with you about supplementing your neck lift with facial procedures that can be performed in close succession or, if desired, in separate sessions.
While the vast majority of neck lift patients don’t experience any significant discomfort after surgery, medication can be prescribed to help manage pain, if necessary. Within just a couple of days following surgery, you’ll be able to move around, but it will be of paramount importance that you limit yourself to light activity for the first couple of weeks.
