Many men and women request that just their neck be restored to a more youthful form. Often their neck has prematurely aged relative to their face. An isolated neck lift is certainly possible. This short outpatient procedure is performed in our surgery center under local anesthesia with IV sedation. There is typically an incision that begins at the earlobe that travels behind the ear for a short distance. Occasionally a small incision is also utilized in the natural crease just below the chin. Downtime varies, but typically is one week or less.
