4 Foolish, Everyday Myths About Neck Lift Surgery

Enjoy a Youthful Appearance With a Neck Lift in Maryland

When it comes to getting a neck lift, there are certain, common misconceptions that just aren’t true. At Lynch Plastic Surgery in Maryland, we provide a number of different options to enhance the appearance of your neck, no matter how old you are. From age to definition to down time, we’re here to dispel some of those rumors that may be holding you back from having a more youthful, and confident appearance.

Myth #1: You Can Only Improve The Neck With A Facelift

There are several options to enhance the appearance of your neck and improve the age of your face. These include non-invasive in-office treatments, such as Botox into tight vertical bands, neck lifts via liposuction with tiny, hidden incisions and extended neck lift with incisions concealed in front and behind the ear.

Myth #2: My Weak Chin Will Never Allow My Neck To Look Defined


At any age, a weak chin may make the neck look like it has less contour and definition. A chin implant in combination with any neck procedures can dramatically improve neck contour.

Myth #3: Neck Lifts Are Only For Older People

neck-lift-chevy-chase Younger patients who seek neck lifts usually have excess fat in the neck that liposuction alone can address. After age 40, vertical bands in the neck usually require tightening via a small incision under the chin. This tightening, coupled with liposuction, can dramatically change the neck contour. Beyond age 50, loose skin plays a larger role and a neck lift may require removing skin from in front and behind the ear. Waiting past the age 60 may require a combination neck lift with facelift. Don’t feel like you have to look “older” to enjoy a youthful looking neck.

Myth #4: A Neck Lift Will Keep Me Out Of Work For Weeks

All types of neck lift procedures are performed as outpatient surgery. Recovery time is only about 3-7 days depending on the procedure. Dr. Sheilah A.
