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.

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 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.
