About Neck Lift
Your face isn’t the only place that can begin showing signs of aging. The neck is another common area where wrinkles and excess skin can accumulate. If you’ve noticed these lines and wrinkles around your neck, you might feel that that aspect of your appearance needs to be addressed to make you look as young as you feel.
Introduction to Neck Lift
Wrinkles and lines can have various causes. Around the neck, they are most often caused by a significant amount of excess skin. A neck lift will remove that excess skin in order to make the neck appear smoother and more youthful. By addressing wrinkles and lines on the neck, Dr. Ogilvie can help patients look younger in a way that appears largely natural. In other words, no one will notice you’ve had surgery — they’ll just notice you look great.
If you’re interested in undergoing a neck lift performed by Dr Ogilvie in Chicago, the first step is to contact our offices to schedule a consultation.
How Do I Get Started on my Neck Lift?
During your consultation, Dr. Ogilvie will visually examine your neck to ensure that the procedure meets the desired results.
During your consultation, you will also be able to ask any questions you might have about the neck lift procedure. Dr. Ogilvie believes in compassionate care, helping patients to understand every facet of their procedure and know precisely what to expect.
To schedule your consultation, simply contact us to make an appointment.
Who is a Good Candidate for Neck Lift?
Generally, candidates for neck lift surgery will look to address deep, significant, and plentiful wrinkles around the neck. These wrinkles can make you look older than you feel — and that feeling can even spread to your face; you might feel as though you look aged, but the problem may be wrinkles on your neck, not your face.
Sometimes, a neck lift may be coupled with a facelift procedure to give patients a more cohesive appearance. A significantly wrinkled neck can undermine even the more natural-looking facelift results and vice versa.
Is Neck Lift Right For Me?
At a glance, good candidates for neck lift surgery will:
- Notice wrinkles and lines spread out over a wide area of the neck
- Notice deep or significant wrinkles in the neck
- Want a smoother, more elegant, and more youthful-looking neck
- Be generally healthy; health should be good enough to endure surgery
- Maintain realistic expectations about what a neck lift can achieve
Dr. Ogilvie screens all plastic surgery patients to ensure they are good candidates. To see if you’re a good candidate for a neck lift by Dr. Ogilvie, contact us to schedule a consultation.
Recovery and Result
Results — Patients should see neck lift results a few weeks after surgery, as swelling and bruising begin to subside. Once recovery is complete, the neck will look significantly smoother and more contoured. Patients may also notice benefits around the jawline as well.

The Neck Lift Procedure
As with many other plastic surgery procedures, a neck lift is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning there is no overnight hospital stay. The vast majority of recuperation and recovery is done at home. A neck lift will usually follow these steps:
Anesthesia — Patients will choose local anesthesia with a sedative or general anesthesia for their neck lift procedure. This decision is usually made in conjunction with Dr. Ogilvie’s recommendations.
Incisions — Incision types will vary depending on the changes patients want. However, most incisions will be made around the ears. When more substantial work is needed, incisions might start around the sideburns and wrap around the bottom of the ear. Once the incisions have been completed, Dr. Ogilvie will remove excess skin and reposition fat deposits as needed. An incision under the chin may also be needed depending on what is required.
Closing the Incisions — Dr. Ogilvie will close the incisions using sutures once work is complete. Those sutures must either be removed in a few days or dissolved.
