Neck Lift

Rediscover your youthful neck with our cervicoplasty, a specialized neck lift procedure performed by our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Zubowicz, at Thrive Medical Spa. Elevate your confidence and embrace a more radiant you.



What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, or cervicoplasty, is a range of procedures tailored to correct neck imperfections. Three issues can lead to the dreaded ”turkey neck” – excess fat, surplus skin, and a drooping platysma muscle. Our cervicoplasty addresses one or all three components.

Neck lifts have evolved over five decades with various techniques. Our skilled plastic surgeon will customize the procedure to suit your specific needs, ensuring optimal results.

Most healthy individuals qualify for this procedure. During a consultation, we assess your suitability through interviews and photos, ensuring realistic expectations and enhancing your natural beauty.

Why Choose a Neck Lift at Thrive Medical Spa?

With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Zubowicz is a trusted authority in the field of neck surgery, and our entire surgical team consists of fully licensed and experienced professionals in the operating room.

Identifying and managing the underlying issues in neck rejuvenation is crucial, and experience makes all the difference. These procedures should only be entrusted to a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Zubowicz, who brings a wealth of expertise to deliver desired results.

When it comes to formal neck lift procedures, where excess skin is removed, we employ a cutting-edge technique. The use of ”sequential tension sutures” not only secures the skin to the underlying muscle but also eliminates the need for a drain. This innovative approach shapes the skin beautifully and ensures tension-free closure of incisions, resulting in minimal scarring.

The Neck Lift Procedure

For simpler cases, we offer neck lifts with oral sedation and local anesthesia right in our clinic. For more complex situations, we arrange for a general anesthetic at a trusted ambulatory surgery center, guaranteeing your well-being. We also clarify pre-op requirements during a dedicated visit.

For focused fat reduction: Using a small liposuction cannula, we often perform this with local anesthesia alone.

For fat and muscle enhancement: When excess fat and flaccid muscles are the issue, we provide in-office solutions with oral sedation and local anesthesia.

For excess skin resolution: Our team expertly removes excess skin through discreet incisions behind the ears, along the hairline, and under the chin.

Neck liposuction takes just 30 minutes, while cervicoplasty with muscle repair and skin removal requires 1.5 to 2 hours.

Your Recovery and Results

You’ll be up and about right after the procedure. Feel free to engage in light activities, such as walking for exercise during the first week. After that, most ordinary athletic activities can be resumed.

You’ll wear a compression strap for about a week, though it’s not necessary in public. Patients typically describe post-op pain as mild soreness, ensuring a more comfortable recovery.

Enjoy the results for many years, if not a lifetime.

While bruising may occur, it’s usually temporary. You can confidently go out in public looking natural within about a week.

In rare cases, a revision may enhance the results. Dr. Zubowicz offers professional revisions at no additional charge.

Safety is Our Priority

Neck lifts or cervicoplasty are considered safe. At Thrive Medical Spa, we prioritize your safety, well-being and comfort above all else. With a steadfast commitment to offering safe, effective services and treatments, we aim to foster an environment where you can THRIVE, supported by our unwavering dedication to your wellness and peace of mind.
