Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto helps countless patients in Orlando enhance their appearance through neck lift surgery. Ideal candidates for this procedure are those who have loose, flabby skin in the neck area or have just lost a significant amount of weight. The procedure is also a great option for those who have numerous fine lines and wrinkles on their neck or wish to improve their overall profile. In addition, this surgery eliminates the appearance of a double chin or “turkey neck.” The skin tightening technique used in this procedure creates a more youthful, smooth and slim neckline. At Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery, patients will be presented with all their options during their initial consultation with Dr. Soto.
A neck lift removes hanging skin and reshapes the neck. During the procedure, an incision is placed under the chin and/or behind or in front of the ears. If fat deposits are present and need to be removed, liposuction will be used during the surgery and performed first. The final steps of treatment will be to trim away excess skin, pull the remaining underlying tissue and muscle tight, and suture the incision.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me.

"After having Dr. Soto perform my breast enhancement surgery 7 years ago, when I lost a significant amount of weight and my implants no longer suited my body or my lifestyle, I decided to return to him to have him perform the surgery to remove the implants. The surgery was a total success. The breast lift he performed made me more confident with my appearance and I look and feel as great as I did after the first surgery he performed for me. He is truly a gifted surgeon!"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Aug 17, 2019
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient surgery at an accredited surgical clinic. The duration of the surgery usually takes around 2 hours, although it may vary depending on the case. Bruising and swelling will be visible after the surgery, but this will subside in the few short days following the procedure. Initially, patients will feel tightness and numbness. Once the neck adjusts to its new position, patients will notice a more relaxed feeling and a beautiful surgical result. It can take up to 6 months for the final results to appear.

Neck Lift FAQs
Alternative to Lift?
Surgery is the only way to remove loose skin, especially if it is loose enough to hang and droop. Therefore, a neck lift is the only solution when it comes to redefining an individual’s neck to create a strong contour. While there are some very good skin tightening laser treatments on the market today, surgery is still the best option.
There is minimal scarring with this procedure. Since the incision is placed under the chin and near the ears, the scarring is usually hidden. A skilled facial surgeon will take great effort to minimize scarring as much as possible.
This depends on the situation and the amount of loose and sagging skin that is present. Some weight loss patients are young and may require a neck lift at a young age (for example, those between 20-30). For older patients who are combatting loose skin due to aging, the most common age is between 50-70.
During the initial consultation, it may be brought up that in addition to a neck lift, the patient may also benefit from another procedure, such as a facelift or a chin implant. It is common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve the patient’s desired contours and aesthetic goals.
