Neck Lift in Louisville: Is It for Me?

Louisville neck lift patients include men and women who are in good general health but are bothered by excess skin and fat on their necks, including loose, flapping skin just beneath the chin – the dreaded turkey waddle. Depending on the needs of the patient, neck lift may include platysmaplasty (tightening of platysma muscles) and/or cervicoplasty (removal of excess skin). Your neck lift may also include the removal of fat, either surgically or via liposuction. Incisions for neck lift are typically made under the chin and around the ears, where they are virtually undetectable following recovery. This procedure may be combined with a facelift, brow lift and/or eyelid surgery for a complete facial makeover.

Goals of Surgery

The goal of neck lift surgery is to restore the neck to its tight, smooth, youthful appearance.

The Surgery

Where Does the Surgery Take Place?

Neck lift surgery takes 2 to 3 hours to complete.

Most Louisville neck lift patients are back to their normal everyday activities within 2 weeks of their neck lift. Dr. Corbett will provide you with detailed instructions regarding the resumption of various activities. Vigorous exercise should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks.


You should expect to visit Dr. Corbett 3 or 4 times following your procedure, although this number may vary depending on the extent of your surgery.


All surgical procedures, including neck lift, carry risks. Dr. Corbett will thoroughly explain all possible neck lift complications during your initial consultation.
