A necklift is commonly performed to address issues such as sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and muscle banding in the neck area, which can be caused by aging or weight loss. During the procedure, the surgeon may make incisions behind the ears or under the chin to access and tighten the neck muscles and remove excess skin and fat.
Instead, a neck lift can offer long lasting cosmetic improvement at the jaw and neckline. This procedure treats excess skin and fat under the jaw while tightening up the musculature and supporting the deeper neck tissues.
For women, a neck lift in Nashville at Refine Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, can soften, refine and rejuvenate their appearance.
For men, a neck lift can restore their masculine features and bring back a more youthful appearance with strong features.
Dr. Bryant, a dual board-certified and fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon, offers an extended deep plane neck lift in Nashville as well as other traditional neck lift techniques, such as SMAS-based procedures and direct neck lift, as well as corset platysmaplasty, submentoplasty, and liposuction.
Some patients may only require a mini neck lift to correct early signs of neck aging. Mature patients often benefit most from a neck lift, or a neck lift and facelift combined surgery.
Neck lifts are often performed at the same time as a facelift. The face and lower neck tend to age at the same pace, so it makes sense to treat both at once.
Many patients with concerns about the aging appearance of their jawline assume that a neck lift is the correct treatment of choice.
In reality, the loss of youthful jawline contours is often the result of facial tissues sagging over the jaw, in addition to laxity and aging in the neck. A traditional facelift does provide a degree of neck tightening, but a neck lift is often needed to address moderate to severe sagging jowls and a turkey neck.
Unlike a mini facelift, a full neck lift addresses the platysma muscle that is responsible for creating vertical neckbands (cobra neck).
Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes small pockets of excess fat that are hiding the chiseled jawline beneath.
Surgical neck fat reduction can be performed without the need for general anesthesia since we are working on a small area of the face. Light sedation is available for patients that prefer it. This procedure can also be combined with other treatments, either in the office or in the operating room.
Many forms of liposuction also have a liquid anesthetic injected into the tissues to reduce discomfort during the procedure and help break up the fat, called tumescent. Neck and chin lipo are permanent solutions for a double chin or chin fat. However, it will not fix loose jowls. Buccal fat reduction, facelifting, facial micro-liposuction, or other skin tightening treatments are needed for this.
The face and neck lift is generally performed under IV sedation at an outpatient surgical center. We have six convenient locations throughout the greater Nashville metro area to provide easy access no matter where our patients are coming from. Some patients choose to have their procedures performed in our office. Some procedures may only require topical anesthesia or light sedation. This is discussed individually with each patient during our consultation. Our goal is to ensure your comfort and safety during the procedure, first and foremost.
Before your procedure, you’ll meet with Dr. Bryant and his surgical care coordinator. Your personal treatment plan will be reviewed and you’ll be provided with all preoperative and postoperative instructions — as well as medication if applicable.
Our Nashville neck lift cost, along with the cost of related procedures, will be provided at this time so you can plan ahead for the financial expense of surgery. While insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures, cash pay, credit, and special financing options including Bankworthy Technology and Care Credit are available.
Many patients are surprised by the minimal amount of pain experienced, and often only require Tylenol after the first one to two days. Sutures are typically removed within seven to ten days. And, most patients are comfortable resuming light social activity in about two weeks.

You may have seen FaceTite on Real Housewives of Orange County. Other well-known celebrities who have used the treatment include_once Paula Abdul. The FDA-approved FaceTite procedure uses a handheld device to transmit RF energy into the skin. This non-surgical skin tightening procedure is highly effective when performed by a board-certified physician such as Dr. Bryant.
It takes skill and experience to administer RF skin tightening treatments the right way. FaceTite RF neck tightening tightens loose skin and even stimulates collagen production for a firm, youthful neck, and face. It is a minimally invasive office procedure that can be performed in the comfort of a treatment chair, with no surgery needed.
InMode AccuTite is the smallest RF device on the market, so it is a perfect match for a small area such as the chin, jaw, and lower face. It is able to get into nooks and contours with ease, ensuring no area is missed. This neck skin tightening device uses the same technology as FaceTite, with the main difference being the smaller size.
Like FaceTite, AccuTite is among the most advanced RFAL treatments (radiofrequency assisted lipolysis) available today. This minimally invasive procedure can be performed in an outpatient setting. Dr. Bryant is an InMode Luminary Partner and was the first physician in Tennessee to offer this brand new, exciting treatment. To learn more, see our blog posts HERE.
For wrinkles on the eyelids, forehead, chin, lower face, and neck, Morpheus8 microneedling represents the next generation of RF skin tightening. It is most often compared to ultherapy, but many patients prefer Morpheus because there is significantly less pain during the procedure and the results seem to be more consistent.
Morpheus8 combines two procedures in one: microneedling for collagen induction and radiofrequency energy to tighten sagging neck and face skin. It is also effective for increasing skin elasticity, softening scars, and improving skin texture. The customizability of Morpheus is unique. Most patients receive treatments using several different depths and energy levels to give the best possible result.
Jowl sagging and loose facial skin is no match for the Embrace radiofrequency treatment. Embrace skin tightening is a procedure that is ideal for sagging skin that the patient hopes to make appear more firm and taut without surgery.
Embrace RF combines FDA-approved FaceTite skin tightening technology with Morpheus8 RF micro-needling to increase the level of skin penetration even more than FaceTite alone. This subdermal adipose remodeling device (“SARD”) provides excellent chin fat reduction while visibly firming loose skin. Examples of EmbraceRF patients treated by Dr. Bryant can be seen HERE.
