Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.


Your neck contour is often taken as a sign of your youth.  But as we age, fat can accumulate on our neck. With the help of liposuction, fatty deposits can be removed, enabling the underlying structures of the neck to shine through. Younger patients can often benefit from liposuction alone, whereas in older patients, it is often combined with facelift and neck lift procedures to optimize a youthful appearance.


In many people, your neck is the very first area to show the telltale signs of aging, even while your face still remains youthful. A neck lift procedure from Dr. Nimtz will enhance the natural contour of your neck and in turn, give you a healthier and more youthful appearance. In some cases, liposuction may adequately restore the natural shape of your neck. But if your issue is sagging or loose skin, which can be caused by heredity or weight loss, no matter what the cause, a neck lift may be the ideal form of intervention to restore the neck profile of your younger self.

Meet Dr. Nimtz


Is it time for you to finally restore some youthful definition to your facial profile? Are you troubled by loose or sagging skin in your neck or throat area? Do you suffer from the “turkey neck” effect? If you have too much loose skin on your neck, then a neck lift procedure may be the ideal solution for you. You are probably a pretty good candidate for a neck lift if you want to eliminate those pockets of sagging, excess fat and loose, wrinkled bands of skin that may have formed across your neck.


Typically neck lift surgery takes between one and three hours to complete. The procedure is performed through tiny incisions, which are discreetly placed on the underside of your chin. Dr. Nimtz can tighten and sculpt your neck muscles to remove the unsightly “turkey neck” effect and to address other unattractive bands of sagging skin, fat pockets, or wrinkles. Your muscles, as well as the skin beneath your chin and along your jawline, may also be tightened for a more defined and youthful profile and silhouette.

Most patients require only one or two weeks to recover following their neck lift procedure. To protect and support delicate tissue following your procedure your neck will be wrapped in a compression bandage. Occasionally some patients experience mild tenderness, swelling, or soreness as well as temporary skin numbness and tightness. These symptoms tend to resolve within a few days. For the first 10 days after your neck lift, Dr. Nimtz will advise you to keep your neck and head elevated and to avoid irritating the area.
