Plastic surgeon Dr. Bradley Bengtson specializes in neck lift surgery, helping his Grand Rapids, Birmingham, and Detroit area patients lose the loose, sagging skin around their neck, reduce the bulge that creates a double chin, and refine their jawline.

Weight loss, aging, or heredity can all contribute to a neck that has extra skin or fatty deposits beneath the chin. If you are tired of hiding your “turkey neck” under scarves or high-collared shirts, perhaps it’s time to consider neck lift surgery. Weight loss, aging, or heredity can all contribute to a neck that has extra skin or fatty deposits beneath the chin.

If you are tired of hiding your “turkey neck” under scarves or high-collared shirts, perhaps it’s time to consider our Grand Rapids neck lift surgery. At the Bengtson Center, this procedure often includes liposuction to reduce the fat pocket under the chin, followed by removal of the extra skin. A neck lift is performed as part of facelift surgery. As a result of neck lift surgery, our Grand Rapids, Birmingham, and Detroit area patients report feeling younger and more restored due to their newly defined appearance, which not only emphasizes the neck but also complements the face.

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift redefines the neck by reducing a double chin and smoothing a neck that has lost its youthful appearance.

The neck is often addressed in facelift surgery; however, if your neck is your prime concern, Dr. Bengtson or Dr. Alfonso will focus on your neck during surgery or perform a neck lift surgery alone. At the Grand Rapids Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids neck lift procedure techniques our surgeon utilizes include the following:

  • Submental liposuction beneath the chin to reduce excess fat
  • A small incision beneath the chin to tighten vertical muscles of the neck
  • Horizontal hairline incisions behind the ears to reduce excess skin
