About Neck Lifts
Loose skin and sagging around the neck can be caused by age or by substantial weight loss. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Lawrence Bass, is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and performs a neck lift to restore neck contour and improve the patient's appearance. During a neck lift procedure, Dr. Bass can remove the excess skin and re-suspend the surrounding muscles for a more youthful, firm appearance. At Bass Plastic Surgery, this operation is also commonly combined with liposuction to reduce the fat in the area as well, presenting our New York, NY patients with a fully contoured appearance. If patients are interested in restoring their neck and face, then we invite them to contact one of our offices today for a private consultation.
The best candidates for neck lift surgery:
- Have loose skin in the area caused by aging, weight loss, or genetics
- Are typically from 40 – 70+ years in age
- Desire a sharper, more defined jawline
- Desire a long-term solution
- Desire a natural look
"I had a breast reduction with Dr. Bass in July. Everything from the consultation to the follow up appointments to the office staff was wonderful. I'm so pleased with the results and should've done this years ago. Dr. Bass is attentive and very thorough. The office staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Bass!!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 02, 2017

"I had surgery performed by Dr. Bass. I found him to be caring with more aftercare than to had anticipated. I am a patient at the Great Neck office and found everyone there to be helpful, thorough, and caring. I would highly recommend this practice."- M. / Healthgrades / Nov 18, 2020
"Great Surgeon for Male Rhinoplasty - Dr. Bass performed my rhinoplasty along with a medically indicated septoplasty. I'm happy with the results, in terms of both look and function (i.e. snoring is cured, breathing noticeably improved).Male rhinoplasty is a difficult procedure to get right; my understanding is that it has a lower patient satisfaction rate than most cosmetic procedures. Thus, it is especially important to find the right surgeon with the knowledge, skill and experience, who can discuss expectations in a clear and honest manner. I fully recommend Dr. Bass.Dr. Bass is very patient and caring, especially for a surgeon of his renown. Pre-operative consultation was very thorough and he was generous with his time. Recovery from any nasal surgery is unpleasant and good post-operative care is important; again, I'm pleased with his & his staff's empathy and responsiveness.Finally, I'm grateful that Dr. Bass was able to accommodate my schedule and coordinate with her colleague Dr. Franziska Huettner (another outstanding surgeon), so I could have multiple procedures with the downtime of one."- A. / RealSelf / Aug 23, 2020

What to Expect
Neck lift surgery is outpatient and performed at one of our offices in the accredited surgical facility. The patient receives anesthesia under the care of an anesthesiologist. Dr. Bass will make incisions under the chin or in front of or behind the patient’s ears. Liposuction will be performed if there is excess fat in the region. The underlying neck muscles will be repaired and re-suspended. Then, excess skin will be trimmed and the remaining skin will be re-draped for a smoother, defined appearance.
Following neck lift surgery, a patient commonly experiences some bruising and swelling in the neck area. It’s also common for patients to have a sensation of tightness and pulling, which is a result of the neck adjusting to the new position. Typically, patients are able to return to routine work and social activities in around 7 – 10 days. After a few months, a patient should be able to see the full effects of the surgery with a smoother, more contoured neck.
