As we grow older, the natural loss of skin elasticity and the effects of gravity combine to take their toll on the neck, making people look older or heavier than they are. For some, genetics cause a predisposition toward excess skin or fat in the neck area. The result can be lax skin that obscures the contour of the chin and jaw line.
Dr. Andrew Goldberg performs neck lift surgery in Fairfax, Virginia as a remedy for:
- Excessive sagging
- Creasing of the neck
Neck lift surgery involves trimming away excess skin and fat to create a smoother, tighter, and more attractive neck area.
Your Neck Lift Procedure
Dr. Goldberg typically performs neck lift surgery at his on-site plastic surgery center under general anesthesia, or local anesthesia with sedation. The procedure usually involves:
- Removal of excess skin
- Tightening of lax muscles
- Liposuction for the removal of fat deposits (in some cases)
Dr. Goldberg takes into consideration factors about each unique individual to determine the best way to perform Fairfax, Virginia neck lift surgery:
- Skin tone

- Other signs of aging in your facial features
Facelift surgery may be performed in conjunction with a neck lift for even more effective rejuvenation of the entire lower face and neck area. Depending on whether the procedure is performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures, neck lift surgery usually takes approximately 2 to 3 hours.
