Male Neck Lift


Take away years from your appearance and restore your youthful neckline with a neck lift for men from Michael Schwartz, M.D., who is a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, offering male neck lifts for men who live in and around Los Angeles, Pasadena and the surrounding communities of California.

What is a Neck Lift (Male Neck Lift)?

The drooping and dreaded “turkey neck” effect is a fact of life for many men as they age, and for the longest time it was a matter of just grinning and bearing it, but no more. Now with the advent of male plastic surgery, a neck lift from world-class surgeon Dr. Schwartz, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that corrects such conditions as excess sagging skin, excess fat in the neck causing a “turkey wattle” or “turkey neck” effect, and the appearance of jowls along the jawline. If you’re a man who is tired of looking older than you feel, take the time to contact us now to set up your consultation and find out if the benefits of a neck lift from Dr. Schwartz are right for you.

Benefits of a Male Neck Lift

In men, the neck is often overlooked, which is fine until wrinkles, drooping skin and the onset of  a “turkey neck” cause the neck to attract unwanted attention, making you look older than you feel. Often men are ready to combat the most visible and aggressive signs of aging, and in these cases, a neck lift can be the ideal solution as it is a far less invasive and complex procedure than a total facelift, but still manages to produce a firm, taut, rejuvenated neck and jawline. The neck lift for men can correct a double chin and sagging tissues, as well as address any muscle banding in the neck area. It also restores a firm, smoother, more natural-looking contour. Contact Dr. Schwartz now to set up your consultation and learn more about the benefits of a male neck lift.

Am I A Candidate for a Male Neck Lift?

Do you feel like time is passing you by? Get back into the game with a neck left for men from Dr. Schwartz, and recover your youthful appearance and eliminate telltale signs of aging. If you are in good general health but you feel that the appearance of your neck is making you look older than you actually feel or is undermining your confidence and self-esteem, then you may be an ideal candidate for neck lift surgery with Dr. Schwartz.

What is the Male Neck Lift Procedure?

With Dr. Schwartz, the neck lift for men procedure is conducted in a fashion very similar to a facelift, although it is by definition less complicated and complex. The procedure can be done with light sedation and local tumescent anesthesia. Dr. Schwartz will begin by making discreet incisions so he can access the underlying neck muscles, through which he will be able to tighten the muscles, removing the banding effect if present before extracting pockets of fatty deposits through liposuction, creating a tauter, smoother contour. Often fat is removed deep to the platysma muscles enhancing the neck contour. Once finished, Dr. Schwartz will close the incisions and apply a surgical dressing and compression band.

What is the Male Neck Lift Recovery?

Following your surgery, Dr. Schwartz will carefully place supportive bandages around your neck to assist you in the healing process and also to support your neck muscles, which in turn will help keep you as comfortable as possible during the first few days of your recovery. There is generally very little or no swelling and bruising, and although your neck will feel tight for a few weeks, there is minimal to no pain. Dr. Schwartz advises that you keep your head elevated at 30 degrees for a few days following surgery as this helps reduce swelling. One shouldn’t exercise for 4 weeks following surgery. Sutures are removed on the 7th day. You may look presentable in as little time as one week, but it is best to count on two weeks before making plans to see people. Results are seen immediately on the first day when the dressing is changes. Final healing takes 3-6 months.

How Much Does A Male Neck Lift Cost in Pasadena, CA?

Like many other cosmetic surgeries, the neck lift for men is generally performed as an elective cosmetic procedure and is not covered by medical insurance.
