Neck Lift Reviews
"My journey with Dr. Andrew Silver began nearly a year ago after my neighbor had recommended I see him for a consultation regarding a procedure (PDO threads) that I had booked elsewhere. She had just gotten a facelift and neck lift and looked absolutely incredible only 10 days post-op. I noticed how quickly she was healing as well as her beautiful, natural results. She then showed me a photo of Dr. Silver and I called to make an appointment immediately. I was able to get in within a week or two which was nice, given his reputation as one of the top plastic surgeons in Las Vegas. I had a few other procedures I had recently taken interest in so I was looking forward to covering all of them in the consultation. When I arrived at his office I appreciated the aesthetic of the facility itself. It’s warm and chic, similar to one of the five star resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. His entire staff, from the front desk, to nurses, assistants, and office managers are all extremely friendly, and welcoming. When I finally met Dr Silver, I was a little disappointed because he was wearing a mask, but he introduced himself and asked what my concerns were. I quickly realized how thorough he was, patient, and a perfectionist of his craft! All of the things you look for in a plastic surgeon. He detoured me from the PDO threads and explained in detail why. He answered all my questions, and gave his opinion; which is refreshing because he’s conservative and I feel his approach “less is more”- helps give elevating results rather than changing anyone’s unique natural beauty. I had botched lip filler from another office he helped dissolve. He was able to meticulously dissolve the migrated filler without dissolving all of it, so he didn’t even have to add anymore! Last year the tiny bags under my eyes had started to bother me and I was feeling self conscious. Dr. Silver suggested a lower blepharoplasty with fat transposition for the results I was seeking. I could not be MORE IN LOVE with the results :) His surgery team was so caring and funny, or maybe it was me on the anesthesia, but either way it was a great experience. Preop was the following morning and my entire healing process from that procedure was seamless which I partially attribute to Stacie and her amazing pre-op, post-op instructions that she gives in person ; via email, and has written handouts. I’m also grateful for the healing pre/ post op vitamins they give you! Fast forward to today, I’m laying here on my sofa one day out from my second surgery (3rd procedure) with Dr Silver! This time I was correcting some excess fat sub-mental (double chin). I wanted to do it under general anesthesia as I was too chicken to do it awake, so I decided to try something I liked the look of that’s popular throughout the entertainment industry right now, an endoscopic brow lift. What I call a “pony tail” brow lift. I’m slightly swollen on day two, but I’m already ecstatic with the results I’m seeing!!! Same experience with surgery yesterday. Everyone was on their A game at 6am. I felt completely comfortable thanks to the whole team. I will update this review with before / after pics of myself as soon as I’m healed. I hope this reaches everyone exactly as it is meant to. I’ll just end by saying I’m never letting another surgeon touch my face, EVER!"- A.P. / Google / Oct 01, 2021

"This review is from Debra Brown..I am a 68 year old retired RN. I decided to have my first encounter with plastic surgery a little over 3 months ago. After a very thorough initial consultation with Dr. Silver my husband and I were so impressed I scheduled my surgery that day. I decided to do "The Full Monty." I decided to have a face lift, brow lift, eye lid lift, chin implant, neck lift and dermabrasion above my mouth. I have to say Dr. Silver, his Assistant Stacy and the other personnel at Plastic Surgery Vegas more than met my expectations. Dr. Silver was meticulous in providing my care from beginning to end. I am 3 months post surgery and couldn't be happier with the results. He understood I was looking for a refreshed look without looking "over done." He more than delivered on that request. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Silver and the the staff at Plastic Surgery Vegas for any cosmetic procedure."- T.B. / Google / Mar 26, 2021
"After several consultations for a neck lift I finally decided on Dr. Silver at Plastic Surgery Vegas. His honest evaluation and superior insight and knowledge blew me away. My procedure went very well and am currently recuperating. Dr.Silver has a compassionate demeanor at pre-op as well as during all post op follow-up appointments. This surgeon takes his time to educate and inform his patients thoughtfully on all procedures and expectations. Very happy with my results so far😊"- S.R. / Google / Mar 26, 2021
Am i Candidate for a neck lift?
Patients desiring neck lift surgery generally have visibly sagging and hanging skin along their neckline. This loose skin deformity is usually caused by several factors, including major weight loss and aging. Regardless of the reason, loose neck skin produces an unflattering look, which generally can only be addressed with skin removal and tightening. If you are at a healthy weight, but you feel frustrated by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles on the neck, a neck lift may be a great option.
how is neck lift surgery done?
For neck lift surgery, general anesthesia is used. An incision is placed behind or in front of your ears while another one might also be created underneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, a form of liposuction would be the first step in the surgical process. Next, any loose skin will be trimmed away and the remaining skin will be pulled tight. This technique is performed until the desired shape and contour has been attained. Although sutures are used, scars should not be seen since they were placed under your chin. An injection, such as Kybella, may also be used to enhance the results. In addition, other nonsurgical choices can help the skin's surface, such as laser skin resurfacing or a chemical peel, to produce a vibrantly glowing appearance.
how long is recovery after neck lift surgery?
After a neck lift, there will likely be some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but these will go away in a few days. It's important to rest and avoid high-impact activity for several weeks to assist in the recovery. During this time, fitted tops should be avoided. You should notice visible outcomes almost immediately. In addition, it has been stated that neck lift surgery can make one of the most significant enhancements to a person's profile, shaving years off one's appearance.
Neck lift faq
What about nonsurgical options?
Neck lift surgery is the only option to eliminate excess skin, particularly if it droops or hangs. Although there are several nonsurgical skin tightening treatments that may produce mild improvements, neck lift surgery can more dramatically smooth and redefine the contours of your neck. A popular, minimally invasive treatment called Kybella targets fat in the submental area, but it doesn't correct excess skin.
Will I have visible scars?
A neck lift does require one incision below the chin, as well as two more close to the ears. However, these are made so they are difficult for others to see. We make every effort during neck lift surgery to limit visible scarring. A team member will explain scar management instructions, which will help your incisions to heal thin and flat.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, you can bring up that you are considering another surgery, such as a facelift or chin augmentation, in addition to a neck lift. It's common for these additional procedures to be combined to achieve your best results. If you are concerned about a weak chin or undefined jawline, talk to our team so we can create a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your concerns and goals, you might want to combine a neck lift with liposuction. This may be best if you are concerned about both loose skin and pockets of fat in your neck. We can help you choose whether a lift, liposuction, or a combination of both should be part of your surgical plan.
