I have been a patient of Dr. Hove's for many years now and several of my friends are now patients as well. His work is impeccable and he is a very gentle, caring doctor. He goes out of his way to make sure his patients are comfortable and are not in pain. I highly recommend Dr. Hove if you are considering surgical or non-surgical facial/ear procedures.

I was very pleased with the patient care, bedside manner of Dr. Hove and treatment outcomes of my daughter’s surgery. I am a healthcare provider and have experience dealing with many physicians and surgeons and I can honestly say Dr. Hove is an excellent practitioner who is kind and caring with his patients. Covid has made it really difficult on healthcare providers and Dr. Hove’s office strives to do their best under these very challenging circumstances.

Stunning Before and After Transformations

Dr. Hove focuses on natural-looking results. He's treated patients on both the west and east coast and has improved his practice through meeting the needs of each and every patient. Even though lifting the neckline and performing liposuction is a surgical procedure, Dr. Hove delivers results that appear nonsurgical.

Types of Neck Lift Techniques

Our Main Line, PA, office uses three neck lift techniques to help patients achieve their desired results. Dr. Hove can discuss different combinations of techniques and incision locations at your free consultation.


Cervicoplasty is the process of removing the excess skin on the neck. This technique rids the appearance of deep wrinkles to lend to a smooth, youthful appearance. 


Platysmaplasty involves removing or altering the neck muscles for improved appearance. Platysmaplasty is often paired with cervicoplasty to complete a neck lift procedure.


If a patient has a double chin or excess fat they wish to remove from the neck and jawline, Dr. Hove will perform liposuction along the neckline to remove these stubborn pockets of unwanted fat.

Relax with Anesthesia

The process of a neck lift is virtually painless thanks to anesthesia. Neck lift surgery can take a few hours, but sedation and anesthesia make the time pass much quicker.

Depending on the complexity of your surgery and your unique needs, Dr. Hove will either use local anesthesia, which keeps the patient conscious, or general anesthesia, which puts the patient into a deeply sedated state.

Undergo Surgery

During the procedure, your doctor will use a combination of cervicoplasty, platysmaplasty, and liposuction depending on the plan he's created for you.

Small incisions are made behind the lower part of the ear and sometimes under the chin. These incisions are closed with stitches or sutures.

Recover After the Procedure

Patients often report that pain is minimal following the neck lift procedure. Bruising and swelling may occur after the procedure. Apply ice to the neck continually for the first 48 hours to reduce bruising.

Your doctor may prescribe pain medication for lingering discomfort, but often over-the-counter medication works to manage any discomfort after a few days.

Complementary Procedures

Patients often combine their neck lift treatment with other facial surgery procedures for a more youthful appearance and comprehensive makeover. A few popular complementary procedures Dr. Hove offers are:


While the neck lift procedure leaves your neck smooth and youthful, it doesn't affect your face. Patients may choose to have a facelift and a neck lift to complete their cosmetic makeover.

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eyelid surgery, helps remove excess skin from the eyelid area and tighten the eyelids in the process. This procedure can awaken your expression to match the youthful look of your neck.

Brow Lift

Paired with a neck lift, a brow lift can transform angry expressions and a worried appearance into something lively and youthful. By removing forehead lines, you can better communicate what you feel on the inside.
