Neck Lift Toronto
Neck Lift – Toronto surgeons improve sagging, loose skin and muscle laxity of the neck.
Neck Lift surgery could be the ideal way to get the tighter, toned neck and defined jawline you dream of. A neck rejuvenation with Dr. Torgerson may include three different techniques to rejuvenate the skin below your chin. Each method reduces neck fullness and sagging skin that results from natural ageing. Neck surgery is most often performed at the same time as a Facelift, Mini-Lift, or Chin Augmentation. These cosmetic surgeries complement the neck smoothing procedures beautifully and can create a youthful aesthetic from your upper face, all the way to your collarbone. Patients can choose whether to have their lift performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures or independently.
We invite you to experience the rewards of a welcoming environment where you can expect to be listened to, understood, and delighted with the outcome. Dr. Torgerson is here to help empower you to make the changes you desire to lead a truly beautiful life.
Neck Rejuvenation Surgery In Toronto
What To Expect After A Neck Lift
Neck Lifts in Toronto allow patients to return home the same day as their procedure. *Patients usually rest for approximately 3 hours in the private Recovery Room after surgery, then are discharged by Dr. Torgerson.* Dr. Cory Torgerson provides patients with a private phone number to contact him throughout the recovery process. Prior to surgery, our team ensures each patient has a complete Post-Surgery Instruction Kit that helps take the guesswork out of recovery. It gives step-by-step advice about what to expect and what to do while healing. At the end of 1 week, stitches will come out, and most patients find they can return to normal activities by 2 weeks after surgery.
Individual Anatomy And Personal Preferences
Neck Lift – Toronto Candidates
There are many ways to create a firmer, toned neckline. The fine points of your personalized procedure will be determined by individual anatomy and preferences. Dr. Torgerson spends significant time with each patient during their consultation to discuss the possibilities best suited to them. Your neck tightening treatment may incorporate cervicoplasty, which is ideal for poor skin elasticity and removal of excess skin. The second part of a necklift for men or women may involve platysmaplasty. This procedure tightens superficial neck muscles responsible for noticeable bands protruding from the neck. Neck liposuction reduces fullness in the neck by removing excess fatty deposits. Liposuction can be done on the whole neck or simply to remove a double chin.
The First Step Of Your Journey Begins With A Conversation
How Is A Neck Lift Performed?
Dr. Torgerson – Toronto Necklift Expert
Dr. Torgerson’s patients have their surgery completed under general anaesthesia. An isolated Neck Lift requires incisions behind the ears, similar to a Facelift, with repositioning of tissues and removal of excess skin. The tightening of weak neck muscles can also be performed through a 2- to 3-cm incision beneath the chin. Neck Liposuction is carried out through a very small incision beneath the chin or in the crease behind the earlobes. A neck tightening surgery can be completed in 1 hour to 3 hours, depending on individual requirements.

Top Questions Asked By Patients
What factors should be discussed with the Facial Plastic Surgeon when thinking about a Neck lift?
Important factors to consider when planning cosmetic facial surgery include skin type, bone structure, medical history, ethnic background, skin elasticity, and individual healing rate. You should also discuss pricing, recovery times, and whether other procedures would benefit you, such as Dermal Filler, Botox, a Facelift, or a Brow Lift. Talking with the surgeon about their expertise, aesthetic style , and viewing patient before and after photos are also important components of planning. In your neck lift consultation with Dr. Torgerson, you have the opportunity to discuss all these factors with no obligation to book a surgery.
Who is an ideal candidate?
Generally, Neck Lift patients are men or women over 40 years of age. They may wish to improve the following: a double chin (excess fat under the chin), a turkey neck (loose, sagging, slack skin), or jowls (fat of loose skin under the jaw). Patients who are seeking a neck toning may be younger than this and choose the procedure because of significant weight loss or other skin changes.
Is it possible to combine a Neck Lift with additional procedures?
*Yes, a Neck Lift can be combined with other surgical or non-surgical procedures. This is a benefit to the patient because they won’t require any additional healing or recovery time, but can address number of concerns at once.* Some common cosmetic procedures to complement the neck are: chin implant, facelift, brow lift, dermal filler, neck liposuction, and CO2 laser.
Where will my surgery take place?
Neck Lift surgery is performed in Dr. Cory Torgerson’s hospital-grade, private Surgery Centre. This centre is inspected, assessed, and approved on a routine basis by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO). It is fully operational and surpasses all quality standards and expectations. For patients who desire top-quality care, a private surgery centre means expert medical personnel to take care of you versus a hospital setting that relies on shiftwork for nursing and anesthesiologist staff.
With out-of-hospital premises such as Dr. Torgerson’s, patients can book surgery according to their timelines and not risk being cancelled by the hospital to accommodate a more urgent, life-threatening surgery.
Reduce “Muscle Banding”
Two Specific Procedures
Neck lift surgery involves two specific procedures: a cervicoplasty, which removes excess fat, and a platysmaplasty, which tightens loose neck muscles. When a double chin is reduced, it results in a turkey neck if the muscles are not tightened too. Both procedures are necessary to accomplish the optimum goal of neck lift surgery. When the muscles are tightened, it also reduces “muscle banding”, the horizontal wrinkles across the neck that naturally occur with age.
Dr. Torgerson’s plastic surgery centre has been fully approved by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario as a private out-of-hospital operating facility. You need to be under general anaesthetic if you choose neck lift surgery. Dr. Torgerson’s highly experienced operating staff will ensure your comfort and safety from the beginning of your 90-minute operation to its completion.
Remove Excess Fat
Rejuvenate The Entire Face
Excess fat is drained by making small incisions behind each ear and usually one underneath the chin. This incision is made as close to the chin bone as possible so it is hidden from view. Neck muscles and underlying tissues are tightened, and if necessary, excess sagging skin is removed during surgery. Bruising and swelling can be expected afterwards, and sometimes the patient will need to wear a neck bandage or a neck strap for the first 4 to 5 days. Visible bruising will be gone after 1 week, but neck lift surgery usually requires 2weeks of downtime before returning to work. It is normal for the neck to feel tight for several weeks or even a couple of months afterwards due to the muscles being tightened.
The entire face can look rejuvenated after necklift surgery, as the restoration of the jaw and neckline produces more balance and harmony with all other facial features. It is extremely important to choose a facial plastic surgeon who not only has experience with head and neck surgery, but who also has an aesthetic eye for beauty. Dr. Torgerson is a respected head and neck surgeon (otolaryngologist) and has also achieved certification as a facial cosmetic surgeon. With experience in both of these genres, he will help you achieve the optimum results that you are looking for and is your best choice for neck lift surgery.
