Stunning Before and After Transformations
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 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.

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.
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.
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.
Financing Is Available
Cosmetic procedures can boost confidence and make people feel more comfortable in their bodies. We want to make these benefits accessible, which is why our office in Paoli serving the Main Line offers financing through CareCredit®. This third-party lender allows patients to pay for treatment in affordable monthly installments with little or no interest, so your cosmetic procedure can fit your budget.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will I need to take off work for recovery?This depends largely on the extent of treatment you received and the type of job you have, but in general, patients can expect to need about a week away from their jobs. If your work requires considerable physical activity or you've had an extensive procedure, you may need more time away from work.
My jawline lacks definition. Do I need a neck lift or a facelift?
This depends on the cause. If you have a double chin, a neck lift may be an excellent solution for reducing it and lifting your neck skin in the process. However, if your lack of chin definition is the result of skin laxity in the lower face, a facelift may be the better solution. During your consultation, Dr. Hove can determine which approach will achieve the results you want.
Will people notice my scars after surgery?
Not if you choose the right surgeon and take care of your incisions after surgery. Dr. Hove is an authority in facial plastic surgery. When he removes loose neck skin or makes incisions to access the underlying tissues, he uses refined techniques that result in minimal scarring, often in places that are inconspicuous or easily concealed with your hair. After your procedure, you can use sunscreen and take other precautions to help your scars fade considerably and remain subdued.
