Neck Lift

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the neck and jawline. At Midland Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Kevin Cook specializes in neck lift procedures designed to address issues such as excess fat, loose neck skin, and muscle banding in the neck. This procedure is ideal for those looking to reverse the signs of aging in the neck area and achieve a more youthful, defined neck and jawline profile.

Neck Lift Benefits

Neck Lift surgery offers patients a number of benefits, including:​

  • Elimination of excess skin and a “jowling” appearance

  • Toned and tightened facial/neck skin for a firmer, more youthful appearance

  • Improved the contours of the chin and neck


Undergoing a neck lift with Dr. Kevin Cook offers numerous benefits. This procedure can dramatically improve the appearance of sagging skin and excess fat in the neck, resulting in a more youthful and contoured profile. It's particularly effective for correcting the so-called "turkey neck," smoothing out wrinkles, and enhancing the overall harmony of the face and neck. Patients often report not only an improved physical appearance but also a significant boost in self-confidence and quality of life.

Neck Lift Procedure

The neck lift procedure at Midland Plastic Surgery Center is performed with precision and care by Dr. Cook. Typically, the procedure involves making small incisions behind the ears and possibly under the chin. Through these incisions, excess skin is removed, underlying muscles are tightened, and in some cases, liposuction is used to remove excess fat. Dr. Cook's advanced surgical techniques ensure minimal scarring and natural-looking results, with patient safety and satisfaction as the utmost priorities.

For some patients who are considering neck rejuvenation, liposuction may be all that’s needed to achieve their goals. Dr. Cook will determine which technique is ideal for your needs during the initial consultation.

Combination of a Face and Neck Lift

For comprehensive rejuvenation, patients often opt to combine a neck lift with a facelift. This combined approach ensures a seamless and balanced improvement, addressing aging signs in both the face and neck. Dr. Cook's expertise in performing these combined procedures allows for a harmonious result, with the face and neck aging uniformly, providing an overall natural and youthful appearance.

Dr. Cook custom-tailors facelift and neck lift treatments to align with the cosmetic goals of the individual patient. Though these procedures can be performed separately, some patients choose to have a facelift and neck lift performed simultaneously, depending on their ultimate needs and goals. Others choose to combine one or both of these procedures with an additional cosmetic surgery, such as a brow lift or facial implants, for an even more comprehensive rejuvenation. To learn more about how a facelift or neck lift may help you address your aesthetic concerns, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Cook today.

Results and Recovery

Recovery from a neck lift varies from patient to patient, typically requiring a few weeks. During this time, patients are advised to rest and follow Dr. Cook's post-operative care instructions carefully. Swelling and bruising are common but gradually subside to reveal the final results. The outcomes of a neck lift are long-lasting, offering a rejuvenated appearance that reflects the patient's revitalized self-image.

Neck Lift Scars

Dr. Kevin Cook is highly skilled in the art of minimally invasive surgery, ensuring that incisions for the neck lift are strategically placed in inconspicuous locations, like behind the ears or under the chin. As these scars heal, they become less noticeable, often blending seamlessly with the natural contours of the neck and hairline.
