About Neck Lift
Neck Lift in Southlake Texas
A neck lift in Southlake, Texas surgically tightens and removes excess skin from the neck.
Fat can also be removed if necessary, and underlying neck muscles which often separate with age can be tightened to reduce the “bands” of the neck. A neck lift helps define the jawline and recreates a more youthful appearance.

Dr. Mark E. Mason is a board-certified, Stanford-trained plastic surgeon with years of experience in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The incisions for a neck lift in Southlake, Texas are placed either under the chin, where they cannot be seen, or behind the ears. Over time, the scars should fade so that they are not noticeable at all.
A drainage tube may be placed during surgery, and this is removed approximately 1-2 days after surgery. You will need to rest and sleep with your head slightly elevated, and you will wear a facial compression garment to decrease swelling.
- 2 to 3 weeks return to work, depending on the amount of bruising
- 4-6 weeks, full recovery
