A significant weight loss, as well as aging, can create sagging skin on the neck, which can resemble a “turkey neck” appearance. A necklift, performed by Dallas, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. White, addresses this skin irregularity by removing the excess skin and tightening the remaining skin for a more contoured appearance. Of all cosmetic surgeries, this one can sometimes create some of the most dramatic results for a patient’s appearance. It produces a sharper profile and an overall more youthful appearance. In some cases, liposuction may be used. In addition, Dr. White may recommend a chin implant if the patient has a recessed or weak chin. Combined with a necklift, the results can be quite stunning.
Good candidates are men or women who demonstrate:
· Localized fat deposits under the chin
· Looseness of neck muscle and/or neck skin
· Non-smokers or those who have ceased smoking two months prior to the procedure
· Overall good health

"I had wanted to have a face lift for the past 8 years. I was reluctant to pursue having the surgery because I wanted the results to look natural and I had seen too many face lifts that looked/ "plastic" and artificial. After extensive research I found Dr. White. I chose him because of his training (double board certified in cosmetic surgery and ENT), his ratings/proven track record, his professionalism and attention to detail.When I met Dr. White I was immediately set at ease. I knew I was in excellent hands. He listened to all of my concerns and then addressed each one of them explaining in detail the surgical approach he would take.My surgery took place in November 2018 and I am so happy with the results!!! I look completely natural. Just like myself, but years younger! I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. White for anyone who is looking to achieve excellent, natural looking results!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Mar 16, 2019

"Excited about the fact of looking younger and being treated differently, I decided to go with the best of the best and that is Dr. Steven White. After stumbling across a magazine article and hours of research I felt very confident because he is so focused on keeping patients alive, he is prepared for any and every complication that could arise. This gave me more confidence and I was able to relax plus he makes you feel like you are his only patient. Dr. White is highly respected by the nurses at the hospital and the office staff is very welcoming. After three elective surgeries, I am more excited to see my reflection in the mirror and feeling younger. I am happy with the results."- G.R. / Google / Jun 11, 2020
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, we will evaluate the patient’s underlying bone anatomy and make a determination as to whether the chin position and its influence on the appearance of the neck is an issue. This evaluation will help piece together an individual treatment plan. During surgery, an incision is typically made under the chin. If there are fat pockets present, the excess fat will be removed with liposuction. Then, any loose skin is excised and trimmed away. The final step is when the underlying tissue and muscles are pulled tight and the remaining skin re-draped and secured with sutures to produce a more youthful neck appearance.
Neck Lift Recovery
Swelling and bruising will be present after necklift surgery. A compressive neck dressing is used to help control swelling and to help the neck skin adapt to the new neck contour. Most patients can resume modest activity in 2 weeks. A complete recovery from necklift surgery occurs in about 3-4 weeks. This surgery creates a tighter neck that appears softer and younger.
Create a Tighter Neck
Necklift surgery can result in a gorgeous profile and a younger looking neck for both men and women. It creates especially nice outcomes for weight loss patients where a significant amount of loose skin resides after the weight loss.
