Boost Your Confidence with a Neck Lift

Memories are captured with a click of a button, and sagging skin along your neckline and jawline may have you feeling more camera-shy than in your youthful days. Aging should not prevent you from saving memories for generations to come. It’s normal for the skin to lose elasticity and the body to decrease the production of collagen as we get older. A “turkey neck” and sagging jowls are visible signs of the aging process that many dread.

Dr. Ambay offers many patients throughout Tampa, Wesley Chapel, and the surrounding area the opportunity to rejuvenate their appearance with a neck lift. His results continue to help many patients achieve a more youthful-looking appearance that has them smiling with confidence into their loved-ones cameras. Creating memories they’ll be happy to look back on.

How is the Procedure Performed?

During your consultation with Dr. Ambay, he will educate and guide you through the surgery process. This will help you to make an informed decision. The Ambay Plastic Surgery team will help you through your recovery process and be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Your neck lift will take place at the advanced clinical facility in Wesley Chapel. Dr. Ambay’s exceptionally skilled team of medical professionals will ensure that you receive the highest level of care.

We administer general anesthesia before surgery to keep you comfortable, and the type of incisions (traditional or limited) will depend on your desired outcome.

  • Traditional – these incisions begin in the hairline, continue down behind the ear, and end at the posterior hairline.
  • Limited – these incisions may be around the ear area only.

The hairline and natural contours of the ear hide any incision lines that may be visible once healed. Your incisions will be closed with sutures once Dr. Ambay is satisfied with the results. He then places a bandage around your face to minimize swelling and bruising.

The Procedure - Neck Lift

Ideal Candidate for a Neck Lift

If you have loose, wrinkled skin on your neck area then you may be a candidate for a neck lift. Candidates should meet the following criteria:

  • You are in good health and do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations
  • No medical conditions that may negatively impact healing

What to Expect from Recovery

Dr. Ambay will give you clear recovery guidelines to optimize your healing. This will include instructions on how to care for the areas where incisions were made, and when necessary, how to care for the drains that collect excess fluid under the skin.

During your recovery, you should keep your head elevated and not make any excessive movements. It is also important that you not apply any ice packs to the area as this may negatively impact blood flow.

It is expected that you will have some pain, and your surgeon will prescribe medication to help manage this and reduce swelling.

Results will not be visible immediately as it can take several weeks before the swelling is gone. You should also plan for at least one week of downtime post-surgery and ensure that your incisions are not exposed to any unnecessary contact or movement during healing.


A neck lift can help you feel more confident and look younger. In addition, you may also experience the following benefits:

  • Enhanced natural beauty
  • Jowls, sagging cheek folds, and the turkey neck effects are eliminated
  • Tighter and firmer skin
  • A more contoured jaw line
  • Discreet incisions


There is a chance of complications with any surgical procedure. Therefore it is important to work with a trusted board-certified plastic surgeon to minimize any possible risks or complications. These may include:

  • Poor healing
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Adverse reaction to anesthesia
