By: Dr. Sean Kelishadi, M.D. FACS


Are you thrilled with the results of your recent neck lift surgery and wondering how to keep that rejuvenated look for as long as possible? Neck lift surgery can significantly improve the appearance of sagging skin and deep wrinkles, giving you a more youthful and defined neck and jawline. However, to maintain the youthful and defined appearance your neck lift has given you, it's essential to commit to a healthy lifestyle and skin care routine. Here, Dr. Sean Kelishadi at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA provides essential tips to help you preserve your neck lift results.

How long do neck lift results last?

The longevity of neck lift results varies from person to person, typically lasting between 5 – 10 years. Factors such as skin quality, genetics, and lifestyle choices play a significant role in determining how long you can enjoy your rejuvenated appearance. While the procedure provides substantial and lasting improvements, the natural aging process will continue. To maximize the duration of your neck lift results, it's crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle, protect your skin from sun damage, and consider periodic touch-up treatments. Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon can also help address any concerns and ensure your results remain as long-lasting as possible.

What should I include in my skin care routine after neck lift surgery?

An effective skin care routine is vital for maintaining your neck lift results. Cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting your skin can make a significant difference in prolonging the youthful appearance of your neck.

  • Cleanse daily: Remove dirt, oil, and impurities that can clog pores and lead to skin damage.
  • Moisturize regularly: Use a high-quality cream that promotes skin elasticity and hydration.
  • Apply sunscreen daily: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays, which can accelerate aging and damage your skin.

Consistent skin care habits will help you maintain your neck lift results and keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.

How does a healthy lifestyle help me maintain my results?

A healthy lifestyle plays a crucial role in how long neck lift results last. Your overall health affects your skin's appearance, and certain habits can either support or undermine your neck lift surgery outcomes. Incorporate the following practices into your daily life:

  • Eat a balanced diet: Foods rich in vitamins and antioxidants can nourish your skin from within.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin plump and supple.
  • Exercise regularly: Improve blood circulation and maintain muscle tone to support the skin.

Adopting these healthy habits can enhance your recovery from neck lift surgery at SSK Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, CA, and ensure long-lasting results.

How does good posture impact the longevity of my neck lift results?

Believe it or not, your posture can influence the longevity of your neck lift results. Poor posture can lead to sagging skin and strain on your neck muscles, diminishing the effects of your surgery. Here are some tips to improve your posture:

  • Sit and stand upright: Keep your shoulders back and your head held high.
  • Avoid looking down: Prevent neck strain by not looking down at your phone or computer for extended periods.
  • Use ergonomic furniture: Support good posture, especially if you work at a desk.

Maintaining good posture supports your neck lift results and contributes to your overall well-being.
