What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that effectively smooths and tightens the skin on your neck, providing a youthful, more toned appearance, creating a drastic improvement to the appearance of the neck, along with subtle changes to your overall appearance.

Next-level Neck Lift Precision & Potential: The Perfect Plane™

Dr. Admire is excited to now be able to offer you next-level precision and potential and longer-lasting results with your neck lift. Fifteen years in the making, the AdmireMD® Deep Plane Facelift & Neck Lift is a proprietary facial plastic surgery technique offered only by Dr. Admire, that marks the culmination of thousands of hours in the OR and tens of thousands of patient visits. 

This revolutionary new procedure is a blend of art and science that allows for total facial rejuvenation and the reversal of many of the most common signs of facial aging. Patients look as much as decades younger and are finally free of seven of the most common signs of aging in the face and the neck.

The AdmireMD® Deep Plane Facelift & Neck Lift effectively addresses everything from the decolletage (the low neckline) to the top of the forehead, resolving laxity and skin sagging, reducing stretch marks, restoring lost volume, and correcting proportions. 


I had a neck and facelift as well as brachioplasty with Dr. Admire and also see Megan Yanno for skincare and dermatology. Both are very thorough and spend time to make you feel like you are their only patient. Dr. Admire did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend him for your plastic surgery needs.

More About the Neck Lift Procedure in Scottsdale

The neck lift procedure begins with a small, inconspicuous incision directly below the chin, and behind the crease of the ears, in some cases, as well. 

A procedure known as a cervicoplasty helps to remove excess skin, while the platysmaplasty procedure removes or alters the musculature.

Liposuction can also be used to remove excess fat during a neck lift in Scottsdale, with small incisions that will be sutured closed, as the neck lift is completed.

A neck lift procedure takes two to three hours and may be performed under general or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on your preference. 

Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.

Neck Lift Recovery

Some swelling and bruising is normal after your procedure, and can last up to 10 days. You’ll be advised to keep your head still and avoid turning or twisting for the first few days, while applying cold compresses and keeping your head elevated for the first 48 hours can help to minimize swelling. We’ll make sure you’re set up with prescription medication to help  make sure your recovery process is a comfortable one.

About one week after your neck lift in Scottsdale, we’ll set up an appointment to remove your sutures. Most patients find that they can return to their daily lives within about two weeks, once the bruising and swelling has been given the chance to subside completely. We’ll advise, though, that you take care to avoid more strenuous activities for about four to six weeks.

It’s important to note that by choosing a highly experienced, board-certified surgeon like Anthony A. Admire, you mitigate the chances of these complications, in a significant way.

After your neck lift in Scottsdale, you may experience some dry skin, feelings of tightness, and a burning or tingling sensation in the treatment area.

While these complications are quite rare, they emphasize the importance of choosing a surgeon as skilled and experienced as Anthony A. Admire for your cosmetic procedures.

Neck Lift FAQ

What procedures can I combine with my neck lift?

Neck lift surgery is most often done in tandem with a mini or full facelift as well as with liposuction on other parts of the body. This has the advantage of shortening recovery periods as well as dramatically improving the results of the procedures since everything from the neck to the eyes is being treated.

How much does a neck lift cost?

Neck lift costs vary from person to person, depending on how much surgical work is to be done. Your cost may also include anesthesia and operating room fees, as well as any pain medications. We can provide you a complete cost for your procedure after a personal consultation.

Will I have scars after my neck lift?

Neck lift surgery involves making small incisions behind the ears and beneath the chin that are usually difficult to detect after surgery. Any time the skin is cut or an incision is made, a scar naturally forms. Dr. Admire strives to make these as imperceptible as possible.
