Male neck lift surgery is a surgical procedure that aims to restore optimum neck definition through the removal or redistribution of excess skin and fat around the neck and jawline. It reduces the appearance of the “turkey neck”—a common sign of aging that can make one appear older and possibly even overweight.
This procedure, which is also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is the most effective and long-lasting option for reducing signs of aging in the neck area. In male patients, the results include a smoother and leaner neck, as well as a stronger, more defined jawline.
Reasons To Undergo This Procedure
A sagging neck can have a drastic effect on a man’s physical appearance. It can make you appear overweight even if you are physically fit, and it can make you look much older than you really are, especially if your face still looks particularly young. As such, more men are turning to neck lift procedures to tighten the neck and jawline and achieve a more youthful look. This procedure can help address the following problems:
- Loose neck skin due to rapid weight loss or aging
- Double chin and jowling
- Excess fat deposits in the neck area
- Muscle banding

To better understand your goals and expectations from the surgery, Dr. Sedgh will conduct a comprehensive interview with you during your initial consultation, along with a thorough evaluation of your current physical condition.

- A thorough evaluation of your medical history, past surgeries, and lifestyle habits
- A complete physical examination
- Explanation of the procedure and specific techniques involved
- Discussion on the best surgical plan for your case
Prospective patients from out-of-town or overseas who cannot travel to Dr. Sedgh’s clinic can have their consultations conducted via video conferencing. For added convenience, his office also offers medical tourism services and can assist you with arranging accommodation, transportation, and post-op care, should you need to travel to avail this surgical procedure.
A neck lift surgery is normally an outpatient procedure, with moderate downtime similar to what you would experience with a facelift. After the surgery, you may notice some swelling, pain, and discomfort in the treated area, but these should gradually dissipate within the first week. To manage these side effects and reduce your infection risk, it is important to take the prescribed medications and to follow all post-op instructions.
Patients are usually able to return to work after two weeks, barring any strenuous activities that may affect the neck area.
Dr. Sedgh places the highest importance on providing sufficient postoperative care and support, which is why he makes it a point to personally monitor your recovery progress starting from the first day following the neck lift operation up to a year after, or until you have fully recovered. To ensure a healthy recovery, the doctor will continuously evaluate your healing progress through regular follow-up appointments conducted at his office, over the phone, or via video conferencing.

When under the care of Dr. Sedgh, you will feel comfortable, cared for, and you will understand every aspect of your upcoming treatment, whether surgical or non-surgical.
