Neck Contouring in NYC
Who says you have to live with deep folds or loose facial skin? Many people will develop them as they get older, but if an aging neck has you feeling less confident or unlike yourself, there is a way to take back your youthful appearance. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega use the neck lift procedure to achieve natural looking results for patients who wish to reduce sagging skin and wrinkles or excess fat around their neck and chin.

Find out if a neck lift is right for you by scheduling your consultation at our Manhattan, Westchester or Brooklyn office.
How soon can I have my neck lift?
You and your New York cosmetic surgeon will schedule your neck lift in New York shortly after your initial consultation.
When will I see the results?
The striking results of a lower face and neck lift are appreciated and can be seen immediately. Patients are often amazed at how quickly they appear to have lost weight and years off their look. Of course, there is a recovery period to consider, and it will take some time for the skin to fully heal.
How should I prepare for my neck lift?
Neck lift surgery is most often performed under general anesthesia, which requires the avoidance of blood thinning medication and NSAIDs such as aspirin, Advil® or ibuprofen, and Aleve® for two weeks before and after surgery. Smoking must also cease during this time.
How is a neck lift performed?
Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega are highly adept at achieving the careful balance between natural results and noticeable improvement. During your neck lift surgery, your surgeon will make a careful incision below your chin, giving her access to perform liposuction fat treatment. Well-hidden incisions are also made behind the ears to tighten the skin of the neck for a natural-looking neck lift.
How long does a neck lift take?
Commonly called a “lunchtime neck lift”, this surgery is completed in approximately 2-3 hours. You can schedule your neck lift at any of our New York locations.
Do I have to stay overnight?
No, after your neck lift you will simply rest comfortably in our recovery suite prior to riding home with a friend or relative.
How long does recovery take?
Just after surgery, you should rest at home with assistance for routine tasks. Within 7-10 days, you will be able to comfortably return to work, but you should wait to resume major physical activity for two weeks after surgery. Resting with your head elevated will speed up the healing process and reduce swelling.
What are the risks?
Neck lift procedures performed by Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega at New Look New Life are very safe; surgical considerations include the risk of poor scarring, infection, or bleeding.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega’s cell phone immediately.
How long will my neck lift last?
You will enjoy your neck lift results for many years to come, especially if you maintain a healthy weight. You may notice some relaxing of the neck over the years as a result of aging skin.
