Neck Lift in Chicago, IL

Saggy skin and wrinkles are not limited to just the face. As you get older and your body produces less collagen, you may start to notice creases or bands around the neck and chin, creating a dangling, loose appearance that some people call "turkey neck." At Iteld Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL, we specialize in both traditional and limited incision neck lifts to help patients struggling with the look of their neckline. By removing fat and trimming excess skin, Dr. Lawrence Iteld can reshape your chin and neck for a slimmer, contoured appearance. Before you contact us to schedule your consultation, read more about neck lift surgery and the beautiful results it can give you.

During your initial consultation, our team will speak with you about your concerns and take some time to answer any questions you may have. Like all surgeries performed at our facility, neck lift treatments at Iteld Plastic Surgery are done with non-opioid medications for a comfortable, narcotic-free recovery. The procedure will start with an incision made either along the hairline or around your ears, depending on which approach is being used. Another incision may also be made under your chin. If pockets of fat exist, neck liposuction would be completed first. Following that, any sagging or hanging skin will be removed and the underlying tissue and remaining skin will be pulled tight. This method of skin tightening is conducted until the desired shape and contour have been achieved. Even though sutures are placed at the incision area, scars should not be noticeable since they are located under your chin. A nonsurgical fat reduction injection, such as KYBELLA®, may be incorporated to complement the results.

If you're on the fence about whether neck lift surgery is right for you, here are some benefits to consider:

  • Smoothes sagging, bunched-up skin below the jawline
  • Raises self-assurance and self-confidence in your facial profile and overall appearance
  • Incisions are made with a focus on limiting visible scars
  • Opioid-free treatment and recovery offers a safer alternative for pain relief

It's been a year since Dr. Itled performed my neck lift and a nip tuck for my lower eyelids. It all turned out perfect! I can't imagine a better result. I wanted a subltle effect that erased aging on my neck and jaw, but wouldn't make me look plastic. Dr. Iteld delivered exaclty want I wanted. People I've known forever, even my mom, didnt know why I looked so good. I see Dr. Iteld for Botox too and we discussed my surgery for a few years before I was ready. Dr. Iteld waited patiently for me to say when I was ready -- no pushig, no pressure. And, the staff of professionals who work with Dr. Itled are top notch too. Special call-outs for Carol and Kimmy. My husband was a little hesitant about my surgery plans, unitl he met Dr. Iteld and the amazing staff. My husband ended up being my biggest supporter and a great nurse. One last thing--Dr. Iteld and Carol told me in great detail exaclty what to expect, how to prepare for surgery, aftercare and even a recovery timeframe. I am not exaggerating when I tell you they were spot on about everything. Dr. Iteld and his team are the best plastic surgery group in Chicago!!

Neck lift surgery may be an ideal solution for individuals who struggle with their appearance because of visible sagging or loose skin along the neckline, usually as a result of age or weight loss. Regardless of the reason, hanging neck skin produces an older, unbecoming look, which can only be addressed with skin excision and a tightening technique. This surgery is intended for men and women who are at a stable weight and are healthy enough for an invasive procedure.

How much does a neck lift cost?

The cost of your neck lift can be reviewed in your consultation with Dr. Iteld. Once he has developed your unique treatment plan, he can estimate costs for the anesthesia, facility, and more. To help make your neck lift affordable, Iteld Plastic Surgery takes several payments methods and we can give you information on low-interest medical financing.

Will I have visible scars?

Your neck lift will start with one incision under the chin and two more near the ears. However, these are made so the scars are very difficult for others to see. Dr. Iteld makes every effort during your surgery to avoid visible scarring. A team member will explain scar care instructions, which will help your incisions to heal properly so they are thin and flat.

Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?

During your initial consultation, you can mention that you are considering another procedure, like a facelift or chin augmentation, in addition to a neck lift. It's common for these additional procedures to be done together to achieve your best results. If you have any concerns about an undefined jawline or weak chin, tell Dr. Iteld so he can develop a plan that meets all your goals.

Get rid of your "turkey neck" profile, and attain the firm and smooth neckline you wish for. If you are embarrassed about folds and wrinkles around your neck and jawline, we welcome you to contact Iteld Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL to schedule your appointment. Dr. Iteld has helped countless men and women redefine their look with neck lift surgery.
