The neck area is often one of the first areas to show signs of aging, with factors such as genetics, sun exposure and weight fluctuations contributing to the development of sagging skin, muscle laxity and the appearance of horizontal neck bands. Fortunately, a lower rhytidectomy, commonly known as a neck lift, offers a transformative solution to address these concerns and restore a more youthful, contoured neck profile. Maurice M. Khosh, MD, FACS, offers transformative neck lift surgery to achieve a more graceful neck appearance through his practice in NYC.

What is a Lower Rhytidectomy?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the neck by removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles and recontouring the neck and jawline. This comprehensive approach targets common signs of aging, such as horizontal neck lines, loose, sagging skin and the development of vertical neck bands, resulting in a smoother, more defined neck contour. Whether performed as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation techniques, a neck lift can effectively address the visible signs of aging and restore harmony to the overall facial appearance.

During a neck lift procedure, Dr. Maurice Khosh carefully makes incisions in inconspicuous locations, such as behind the ears or under the chin, to access the underlying tissues of the neck. Excess skin is then removed, and underlying muscles may be tightened or repositioned to restore a firmer, more youthful neck contour. Depending on the specific needs and goals of the patient, liposuction may also be performed to remove excess fat deposits and further sculpt the neck and jawline. The incisions are meticulously closed, resulting in minimal scarring that fades over time, leaving behind a smoother, more refined neck profile.

Benefits of Neck Lift Surgery

One of the key benefits of a neck lift is its ability to address multiple concerns simultaneously, resulting in comprehensive rejuvenation of the neck area. By removing excess skin and tightening underlying muscles, a neck lift can effectively eliminate sagging skin, reduce the appearance of neck bands and restore a more defined jawline and neck contour. This results in a more youthful, balanced facial appearance that enhances overall harmony and symmetry.

In addition to its aesthetic benefits, a neck lift can also improve the functionality of the neck and improve comfort. Many individuals experience relief from symptoms such as neck pain, stiffness and discomfort associated with sagging skin and muscle laxity. By restoring proper support and contour to the neck, a neck lift can improve overall comfort and quality of life, allowing individuals to move and function more freely without the burden of excess skin or sagging tissues.

The results of a neck lift are long-lasting, with many patients enjoying the benefits of a rejuvenated neck contour for years to come. While the aging process will continue over time, proper skincare and lifestyle habits can help maintain the results of a neck lift for as long as possible. By choosing a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Maurice Khosh and following post-operative instructions carefully, individuals can achieve beautiful, natural-looking results that enhance their appearance and confidence.

A neck lift offers a transformative solution for individuals seeking to achieve a youthful, graceful neck contour. By addressing common signs of aging, such as sagging skin, muscle laxity and neck bands, a neck lift can rejuvenate the appearance of the neck and restore harmony to the overall facial profile. With its comprehensive approach and long-lasting results, a neck lift can help individuals reclaim their confidence and embrace a more youthful, vibrant appearance.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results
Kaitlin M.
Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Joann M.
After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
