Neck Lift in Madison, CT
Achieve your most elegant silhouette with a neck lift at Aria DermSpa! A neck lift can address loose skin along the neck and jaw, often referred to as the “turkey neck.” This will result in a much younger-looking appearance and a smoother-looking profile. Our Medical Spa neck lift in Madison, CT requires minimal downtime and little to no noticeable scarring.
Why Have a Neck Lift?
The effects of aging first appear in the facial areas, typically in the neck and lower jaw. Its contour may lose youthful firmness and definition and may look like what many refer to as a “turkey waddle.” When the platysma muscle fibers loosen and sag, a youthful face may dramatically change. Dr. Donofrio offers a neck lift in Madison, CT, to restore the youthful shape and firmness and to perfectly frame your face.
The Neck Lift Procedure
The procedure involves tiny, almost invisible incisions below the earlobes and under the chin. Dr. Donofrio trims excess skin before lifting it to an elevated position and suturing. Next, she removes a section of muscle and fat and sutures the ends together at the front area of the neck. She will connect the tissue beneath or behind the ear to improve neck firmness.
What are the Benefits of a Neck Lift?
Our Madison, CT neck lift can:
- offer safe, effective, and long-lasting results.
- correct and turn back what is known as the “turkey waddle.”

Neck Lift Recovery
The duration of a neck lift recovery varies from patient to patient. However, many of our patients return to their normal activities, including work, within two weeks.
You should expect some bruising, swelling, and tightness for a few weeks. Dr. Donofrio and her staff will provide detailed instructions to follow after surgery and until you are fully recovered.
Combining a Neck Lift with Other Aesthetic Procedure
Because the neck frames the face to display optimal contours and beauty, neck lifts are often done concurrently with other aesthetic procedures. This combination of treatments enables facial definition and balance to resolve the effects of aging like loose skin, midface hollows, and abnormal proportions. Results include defined lines and a youthful facial presence. Here are some standard aesthetic procedures many patients choose to add to neck lift surgery:
- Non-Surgical Eyelift
- Silhouette Instalift
- Undereye Dark Circle Correction
- Facial Fat Transfer
- Injectables & Dermal Fillers
During your consultation, Dr. Donofrio can recommend additional treatments that can help you to age gracefully.
