Neck Lift

neck lift columbus ohio

A necklift is similar to the neck portion of the facelift, but does not focus on treating the upper face. The incisions may either be similar to the facelift incision, or confined to the incision below the chin. Suture suspensions may also be employed in combination with the lift to produce a more dramatic effect. The recovery and results are very similar to the facelift.


A facelift corrects sagging of skin on the face, while a necklift is limited to the neck and jawline. The best way to find out which procedure will meet your needs is to schedule a consultation with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Houser.
For most patients the recovery time following a neck lift is about two weeks.
The best candidate for a facelift or brow lift is an individual who

  • Is in good overall health
  • Is a non-smoker
  • Has a positive outlook and specific, realistic goals for the results of the surgery
Dr. Houser is able to conceal most scars in the natural creases near the ears. As no two patients are exactly alike, Dr. Houser will discuss the plans for your surgery, including any concerns you may have about scaring, with you during your consultation and pre-operative appointments.
