A revision neck lift is performed to repair a neck lift procedure that did not yield satisfactory results or did not resolve your cosmetic concern. Patients commonly seek this surgery after undergoing an initial neck lift that failed to improve their sagging skin and folds to the desired degree or to refresh results that have aged over time.
While a primary neck lift restores the youthful contour of the neck by reducing visible signs of aging such as excessive wrinkling, drooping skin, and jowls, a revision procedure addresses a broad spectrum of issues that have resulted from an unsuccessful neck lift.
Why undergo a revision neck lift?
Patients who would like to repair any unwanted results or side effects from a previous neck lift can significantly benefit from this procedure, but it is also commonly performed to maintain the rejuvenation results achieved from the first surgery. The results will last a decade or more, but as the skin ages over time, touch-ups will eventually be needed. This surgery can help improve the following:
- Neck laxity
- Drooping of the lower facial area
- Undertreated or overtreated results
What are the benefits of a revision neck lift?
Patients who have undergone an initial neck lift procedure have significantly different needs than those who have not had any prior neck rejuvenation surgery. As such, a revision neck lift requires special techniques that must be performed with maximum precision and finesse to produce optimal results.

What is the procedure?
There are a variety of methods used for a revision neck lift. Typically, there are three types of cases that require revision surgery:
- Under corrected
- Over corrected
An under corrected neck lift can be resolved by an additional incision or extending the existing scar to remove excess skin. Another incision may also be made under the chin to minimize the appearance of vertical bands.
Overcorrected neck lifts, on the other hand, can be more challenging to repair, especially for patients with a heavier neck condition. In some cases, a layer of fat is placed under the neck to improve a look that is too tight. Usually, the doctor will need to get a layer of fat with inner skin from either the lower abdomen, arms, or inner thighs to make the neck look more natural. If there were no problems with your previous neck lift, but the results are starting to wane, you may require a simple maintenance procedure. The duration of the procedure will depend on the extent of the revisions needed.
