Rejuvenate Your Neck in Farmington, CT

Although many of our patients notice the effects of an aging face, most are susceptible to an aging neck as well. This concern may occur later with some and earlier with others. But whenever sagging skin, jowls, or a turkey neck appear, it affects facial beauty as well. Fortunately, there is an aesthetic surgery that will deliver a sleek, slim neckline to enhance your facial appearance. A Necklift tightens sagging skin, smooths banding, and restores a youthful jawline contour. It can also treat unwanted neck fat and eliminate a double chin.

After years of dealing with congestion I finally made an appointment with Dr. Seeley in May. He was kind, friendly and knowledgeable from the minute I met him. In September Dr. Seeley and his team preformed the balloon sinuplasty procedure on me, which has been successful! Even though I struggled a bit with the procedure, they were so gentle and kind throughout. Follow ups have been great and quick and the whole team is friendly and nice. I actually enjoy coming in to my appointments! Thank you Dr. Seeley and team!!

My experience going to see Dr. Brook Seeley and getting a procedure was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had! From his staff at the desk, to Kim the coordinator, all the way up to Dr. Seelwy himself, I had a great experience even though I was so nervous and not knowing what to expect. He was so beyond professional, kind, friendly, and took all the time in the world to explain everything step by step, answering each and every one of my questions, and not pushing me to get the procedure or any of that fluff that other doctors do. It was an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Seeley.

How Aging Affects Delicate Skin on the Neck

It’s common to notice the first signs of an aging neck after 40. Patients may see loose skin and a loss of definition below the chin and jaw. Cords or banding in the neck may become more evident as the paired muscles located on either side of the neck (platysma muscles) loosen over the years. Skin becomes less elastic, and many patients develop a turkey neck or loose, sagging skin under the chin. The Jawline definition is lost, and the development of the unsightly double chin.

Our necklift procedure addresses many of these issues leaving you with an appealing complement to your facial appearance. During your operation, we tighten loose skin, adjust the platysma muscle, remove excess fatty tissue, and reestablish youthful contours to the jawline and neckline.

  • A review of your medical history, including any medications you use
  • To discuss treatment options, including any non-surgical alternatives

The Procedure

Because a necklift resolves multiple cosmetic issues and no two patients are alike, we customize the procedure to ensure optimal results. Although duration times vary, a typical operation is approximately two hours.

The procedure is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make precise incisions in the treatment site to deliver the best results possible while minimizing the risk of scarring. Next, we reposition the underlying tissue and remove excess skin. We conclude the operation by closing the incisions with sutures.

You will spend one to two hours in recovery with most of our patients returning home the same day. Plan to have a responsible adult with you to drive you home and stay with you for at least one day.


Expect bandages in place on your neck when you wake. For the first few days, you should rest. We will prescribe pain medication for your comfort as well as antibiotics to stave off infection. As with all surgery, expect bruising, swelling, and some discomfort in the incision area. If you have any questions during recovery, please call.

Most patients take one week off from work, more if their job involves strenuous activity. After one month you can begin to resume exercise with caution. Your surgeon will give you a comprehensive list of dos and don’ts during recovery.

Ideal Candidate

An ideal candidate is in good health, has realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure, and experiences the following concerns:

  • Loose or sagging skin around the neck area
  • Excess fat under the jaw, leading to the development of a double chin
  • Visible bands or changes in the texture of the neck muscles (platysma muscles)
  • Reduction in the definition of the jawline

Risks and Side Effects

While necklift surgery is generally safe, it’s essential to be aware of potential risks and side effects. These may include numbness, bleeding, infection, tightness, and in rare cases, thrombosis (blood clots). Our surgeons will discuss the potential risks and side effects during the consultation and provide detailed post-operative care guidelines to reduce the likelihood of these risks and side effects occurring.

Complementary Procedures

We offer a full complement of facial treatments and procedures to help you look your best. Some can be paired with a necklift or done as a standalone procedure. They include:

Frequently Asked Questions

During surgery, you will be under anesthesia or sedation and feel no pain. During recovery, you may experience some discomfort. Oral pain medication will be prescribed to make your recovery as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

You will notice immediate changes with best results after the swelling subsides, usually within four to six weeks.

Although you will enjoy a sleeker, slimmer neck, a necklift does not stop the effects of aging. However, results can be considered permanent as it resets your neck contour to about a decade earlier than before surgery. After five or ten years, some patients have a follow-up procedure.

Necklift cost varies and is unique to each patient. We recommend you contact our office to schedule a consultation to discuss your cosmetic desires and best-suited options to achieve your expected results.

While the surgery provides long-lasting results, it doesn’t stop aging. Results are considered permanent, resetting the neck contour to a more youthful appearance. Follow-up procedures may be chosen after five or ten years for maintenance.
