What is a Neck Lift?

While a facelift addresses the cheeks, jawline, nasolabial folds, and jowls, a neck lift targets signs of aging in the neck, such as crepe-like skin, excess fat under the chin, sagging contours, “turkey neck”, and vertical muscle banding. The two procedures are often performed in combination to achieve more profound and dramatic changes. Dr. Brace has mastered the art of cosmetic facial surgery and strives to deliver beautiful, nuanced results carefully tailored to the individual.

Types of Neck Lifts

Dr. Brace has a wide range of cutting-edge techniques available at his disposal, both surgical and non-surgical. He will work with each patient individually to curate the right treatment plan that supports a successful outcome.

Grecian urn direct neck lift

This procedure can help remove a “turkey neck”, restoring a smooth, contoured profile. Dr. Brace will excise redundant skin folds to slim and tone the area. He may also employ pulsed dye laser therapy to help camouflage the scar.


Platysmaplasty is a technique to firm the thin sheet of platysma muscle in the neck that stretches from the collarbones to the chin. The procedure can create a more streamlined profile and a more youthful appearance overall.

Neck liposuction

Liposuction is performed with a small cannula to suction out stubborn pockets of fat and slim the neckline. It is often performed in tandem with a neck lift or platysmaplasty to improve definition and create a more attractive profile.

Non-surgical neck lift

Dr. Brace can perform an array of non-invasive treatments to contour the neck. Profound RF combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling to boost collagen production and firm the skin from the inside out. BOTOX can be injected to relax the vertical neck bands caused by muscle tension.

Chin implant

A silicone implant is an ideal solution for those with a weak or receding chin. It can help to harmonize the features and the profile, improving definition and balance. Implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes for highly customized results.
