A smooth, firm neck and contoured jawline contribute to an attractive, youthful appearance. A loose, sagging neckline can detract from an otherwise vibrant, healthy look, as can a double-chin or excess fat on the neck. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Houtan Chaboki has extensive training and experience performing facial rejuvenation procedures. He offers neck lift surgery in Washington, DC to restore definition to the jawline and tighten the neck.

Neck Lift Improvements
Dr. Chaboki typically performs neck lift surgery as part of a facelift for optimal rejuvenation. Some patients choose neck lift surgery as an individual procedure. The neck lift provides a variety of benefits, including:
- Smoothing wrinkled skin along the jaw and neck
- Defining the jawline
- Removing excess fat deposits such as heavy jowls or a double chin
- Tightening sagging neck muscles to correct vertical banding
Your Facial Rejuvenation Options
Dr. Chaboki performs a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures to reduce the signs of aging. He can perform these procedures individually or along with a neck lift. Options include:
- Chin augmentation enhances bone structure with a solid silicone chin implant.
- Facial sculpting with liposuction provides a defined jawline and neck by removing excess fat.
- Non-surgical facelifts with injectable treatments enhance the neck and jawline with minimal downtime.
Dr. Chaboki will review your options with you during your comprehensive evaluation and determine a treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and cosmetic goals.
How It's Performed
Dr. Chaboki performs neck lift surgery using either IV (twilight) sedation or general anesthesia. He places a small incision in a natural crease under the chin and may make additional incisions behind the ears if necessary. He then tightens the neck tissue to reduce sagging or a double chin. Some patients require only liposuction to define the jawline and neck.
Recovery After Neck Lift Surgery
The immediate recovery from neck lift surgery varies, but normally takes 1 to 3 weeks. Patients wear a light neck and face bandage for a short period of time to minimize bruising and swelling.
Your Renewed Look
After your neck lift, you'll appreciate a younger and more attractive version of yourself, without an overdone appearance. As your neck lift surgeon, Dr. Chaboki strives for safe and natural facial rejuvenation.
A neck lift will provide lasting improvement to your appearance. Because the aging process will continue, wrinkles and sagging skin will eventually develop. You should look better than if you had not had the procedure in the first place.
Secondary neck lifts are generally considered several years after the original procedure. Additional procedures such as BOTOX, facial fillers, or laser treatments are often used to help maintain a youthful appearance. These non-surgical treatments typically are started a few months after surgery.
