Our Long Island neck lift can be performed singly or in conjunction with a facelift to restore the youthful, firm, supple look of youth, with excess fat and skin removed and the jawline returned to its defined, firm look.

The Necklift: Procedure Steps

Our necklift in Long Island is a customized surgical procedure, as each individual has unique cosmetic problems. The first step is a full evaluation of the condition of your skin and tissue, along with your medical history and a review of the medications you take to ensure you are safe to undergo the procedure. The steps themselves will vary, based upon your condition, but typically include the following:


Intravenous sedation or general anesthesia


Placed in various locations, including behind the ear or under the neck


The neck skin and tissue is repositioned, fat removed or repositioned, and excess skin removed. The underlying neck muscle structure may need tightening to smooth vertical bands. Incisions are closed with sutures (stitches).

Recovery from a Necklift

While the procedure varies from person to person, depending upon the degree of sagging, excess fat, or other issues, typically recovery from our Long Island necklift is fairly swift. Dr. Tanna employs the latest surgical techniques, and his patients report they recover from the procedure more quickly than expected, returning sooner to work or other activities. More extensive surgeries may require longer recoveries.

While it is normal to expect some swelling, this is not typically a significant problem. Any remaining bruising can be hidden with makeup. The stress and waiting of recovery is well worth it – your appearance will be dramatically improved with a carefully performed neck lift to firm and smooth sagging neck skin, tissue, and remove excess fat.

Rejuvenate Your Neck Look Younger, Fresher, and More Attractive

An aging neck can be an embarrassment. No topical cream or treatment can produce the impressive results of a surgical necklift, when performed by a skilled plastic surgeon. Non-surgical treatments may be used in conjunction with the surgery to further smooth and firm neck skin. After surgery, if you care for the treated area correctly, your improved appearance can last years into the future.
