About Neck Lifts
If you're experiencing a sagging neck with loose skin in the submental area, then a neck lift could be a great option. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi can re-drape and remove the excess skin as well as tighten the neck muscles to present a slimmer, contoured profile. This surgery can also be combined with a facelift or neck liposuction if there is stubborn fat that needs to be removed. At Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY, we will meet with you beforehand to discuss your options and thoroughly explain the procedure process so you can make the most informed decision to reach your aesthetic goals.

- Have lines and wrinkles in the neck area
- Are any age from 20 – 70+ years old
- Desire a sleeker and slimmer profile
- Desire a long-term solution

"I saw Dr. Mizaguchi for lip fillers several times. He is absolutely amazing. My results were always beautiful and consistent. Never did I leave disappointed. I moved out of state last year. I could not find a surgeon that could deliver such great results like Dr. Mizaguchi. I just traveled over 600 miles to have him do my fillers again. Once again, turned out amazing!"- M. / Google / May 24, 2019

"At age 54, I had a tummy tuck with liposuction done six months ago. I followed that up a few weeks ago with a breast lift. I could not be happier with the results from these procedures performed by Dr Mizuguchi. I get more compliments from people. The results exceeded my expectations. The nurses and staff are also very helpful and friendly. I am an extremely pleased patient and will recommend him to everyone.Patsy in Louisville, KY"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / May 08, 2019
What to Expect
Neck lift surgery is outpatient and performed at an accredited surgical facility. You will be under general anesthesia during the procedure. Our plastic surgeon will start off by making an incision under the chin or in front of/behind your ears. When there’s abundant fat in the region, liposuction will be the first step of the surgery to remove this excess fat. The underlying neck muscles will then be pulled tight. Then, the skin will be trimmed and the remaining skin will be re-draped for a tighter, smoother appearance. Stitches, or sutures, are placed deep in the neck wall. The surgeon may also place a drain at the surgical site to control bleeding. The entire surgery typically lasts two hours.
Following a neck lift surgery, you will commonly experience some amount of bruising and swelling in the neck area. It’s also common for you to have a sensation of tightness and pulling, which is a result of the neck adjusting into the new position. Typically, you are able to return to your normal routine, such as work, in around 7 – 10 days. After a few months, you should be able to see the full effects of the surgery with a tighter, smoother, more contoured neck. There will be very minimal scarring since the incisions were placed in discreet places.
