The neck is often an overlooked area that is prone to signs of aging. Crepey skin, neck bands and sagging can create the infamous turkey neck or “waddle” that is undesirable. A facial procedure, like a facelift or rhytidectomy, can address sagging under the chin and upper neck. However, if the entire neck has sagging or aging issues, a neck lift or lower rhytidectomy may be needed. Dr. Gary Linkov of City Facial Plastics offers exceptional neck lifts to help address the emergence of a turkey waddle.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a family of treatments that address problems with fat, muscle and skin on your neck and jaw line. It helps to correct excess flesh on the neck and jowls and gives a contoured and youthful appearance. If there is enough elasticity in the skin, you may benefit from having liposuction (removal of excess fat) alone. Patients may also require a liposuction in combination with a platysmaplasty (tightening of the muscles of the neck), to produce a sculpted, angular and youthful jaw line. Patients with loose facial and neck skin often choose both a neck lift and facelift. This is in addition to or instead of a liposuction.

Enjoy a Youthful Neck Again

While the face gets the most attention when it comes to anti-aging treatments, the neck can give your age away. You may find yourself hiding your neck under clothing and accessories due to sagging skin and noticeable neck bands. With a neck lift procedure, you can feel confident wearing the clothing you prefer without hiding your neck under a scarf or turtleneck.


If you have a neck that is giving away your age, contact our team at City Facial Plastics in Upper East Side, Manhattan. We will schedule your consultation with Dr. Linkov to discuss your options for improving the youthfulness of your neck.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.

Wow is all I can say! Fantastic doctor that gives you an extremely pleasant, professional, and realistic experience. Would highly recommend and give 6 stars if I could.
