Neck Lift With Dr. Kaufman & Dr. Doshi in Manhattan

Sculpt a More Youthful, Self-Assured You

A neck lift can help reverse and slow down the inevitable effects of aging. At Discreet Plastic Surgery, Dr. Doshi and Dr. Kaufman use advanced procedures and artistic precision to provide natural-looking results that can take years off your appearance.

What Is a Neck Lift?

As we age, the skin on our necks begins to lose elasticity, causing wrinkles, sagging skin, and a condition often referred to as “turkey neck,” where the underlying muscles in your neck have weakened and your skin loses its ability to stay tight.

While a healthy diet, sun protection, and exercise can help maintain a youthful appearance, the natural aging process can’t always be avoided with these methods alone.

A neck lift, or cervicoplasty, is a cosmetical surgical procedure designed to improve the visible signs of aging on the neck. While a neck lift is very similar to a face lift, the neck can often be improved with smaller, less invasive procedures.

What Cosmetic Issues Does a Neck Lift Address?

Neck lifts typically refresh and rejuvenate the look of your face by reversing the signs of aging and improving cosmetic conditions such as turkey neck and others. In general, neck lifts can:

  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • Tighten loose skin
  • Remove excess fat

At Discreet Plastic Surgery, Dr. Doshi and Dr. Kaufman will discuss your surgical needs and post-procedures goals to create a customized treatment plan that will help you rejuvenate your appearance and boost your confidence while minimizing any obvious signs of surgery.

How Does a Neck Lift Work?

A neck lift usually takes 2 to 3 hours to complete — depending on the extent of the procedure — and is typically performed under either general or local anesthesia, as determined by the patient’s preferences and the recommendations of Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman.

Let’s take a look at the process for getting a neck lift at Discreet Plastic Surgery:

Initial Consultation

During this appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and goals and ask any questions you may have about the procedure. Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman will evaluate your neck and recommend the best course of action for achieving your desired results.

At Discreet Plastic Surgery, we understand that every patient is unique, which is why we offer a personalized approach to every procedure we perform. If you decide to move forward with your neck lift, Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman will work with you to create a treatment plan that’s tailored to your individual needs so you enjoy the best possible results.


During the procedure, Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman will make incisions behind your ears and under your chin. These incisions will be concealed by natural skin folds. Our surgeons will then use various techniques, including liposuction, to tighten the underlying muscles, remove excess fat, and lift and tighten the skin.

Once Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman have addressed the cosmetic issues and underlying structures causing those issues, they’ll carefully close the incisions with sutures and apply dressings to encourage the healing process.

Typically, you’ll get to go home the same day as the procedure, but you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive and ideally stay with you for the first 24 hours of recovery.


During recovery, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You’ll need rest, take off from work, and avoid other potentially strenuous activities, including exercise, to allow for proper healing. Any discomfort can typically be managed with pain medication and cold compresses.

Choose Discreet Plastic Surgery for Liposuction

In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles by tightening loose skin, restoring elasticity, and removing excess, underlying fat, neck lifts can also:

  • Improve your self-confidence: When you feel good about your appearance, your overall mental health and well-being may also improve. You may also feel more confident and self-assured in your professional and personal life.
  • Be customized to meet your individual needs and goals: Depending on your specific goals and concerns, Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman may recommend a variety of techniques, including liposuction, skin tightening, and muscle rejuvenation. Our personalized approach ensures you get the results you want in the most efficient, effective way possible.
  • Provide you with a relatively short recovery time: While you may need to take off a week or so from work to rest and avoid strenuous activity, if you follow post-procedure aftercare instruction, you can typically resume all normal activities with a few weeks. You can also expect swelling to go down within 4 – 6 weeks after the procedure.
