As people age, their skin loses elasticity, which can cause excess skin to form. This is a common problem, especially in the neck and chin area. The extra skin in the neck can cause problems, such as chafing and irritation from clothing, pain from leaning forward, and difficulty in swallowing. The extra skin can also interfere with wearing necklaces, scarves, or ties. However, all this can be managed through a neck lift Fort Worth procedure.
The neck lift surgical procedure uses an incision in the natural folds of the neck to remove excess skin and fat, tighten underlying tissue, and smooth the transition from the lower face to the neck. This will help you achieve a youthful appearance.
Below is what to expect following a neck lift.

1. Tighter skin
The neck area is one of the first places to show signs of aging, so it is important to restore a youthful appearance here. A neck lift tightens the skin and removes excess fat and tissue from the neck region. This improves the skin’s tone and texture, giving you a natural-looking profile.
2. Less sagging skin
Sagging skin can be especially noticeable in the lower face, jowls, and neck area. Necklift can significantly reduce sagging in the lower face and neck, a problem that can even cause you to look older than your actual age. Neck lifts reduce excess skin and fat from these areas, helping them appear both tighter and more youthful.
3. Improved facial contour/shape
Excess fat accumulation around your chin or jawline can make your face look heavier than it is, especially when viewed from certain angles. A neck lift removes fat deposits in these areas to help improve your facial shape and contour, making it appear leaner and more defined overall.
4. Slimmer neck and jawline
Excess skin on the lower face (jowls) can be reduced during a neck lift procedure. This can result in a slimmer jawline while reducing excess fat under the chin. A slimmer jawline gives your face a better appearance, improving your attractiveness.
5. Long-lasting results and few risks involved
A necklift’s results are typically long-lasting, and although few risks are involved, the surgery is worth the effort. Your surgeon will talk to you about these risks during your consultation so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not this is the right procedure for you. During a consultation, you will discuss the results you would like to achieve with your surgeon so they can recommend whether or not a neck lift is right for you.
6. Less recovery time
Neck lift surgery is less invasive and typically takes less time to recover, depending on the individual’s physical health. Patients can see significant improvements in their neck appearance as early as two weeks after surgery. The procedure typically takes 2-3 hours and can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
