Striving to make your surgical experience a positive and seamless one
A lower rhytidectomy, known as a neck lift, uses a combination of surgical techniques to lift, smooth, and rejuvenate the entire neck area, helping counter the effects of age, gravity, weight changes, and environmental factors. Drawing on her extensive experience as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and possessing a keen artistic eye, Dr. Mona Stone works with you to customize the best surgical approach to meet your aesthetic goals.
The staff at Stone Surgical Arts in Westlake, Texas, strives to make your surgical experience a positive and seamless one, utilizing the most recent techniques and technologies to facilitate a safe and effective surgical experience. Even the prettiest of faces is bound to lose some of its appeal if it comes with a saggy, flabby turkey neck. Getting a neck lift in Westlake can help you get rid of signs of aging and achieve a more youthful look for five to ten years.
Different areas can age at different rates
Wrinkles, laxity, and loss of shapeliness in the neck are often a result of several factors, including the aging process, gravity, heredity, extensive weight loss, weight gain, and stress.
The neck lift—also referred to as neck plastic surgery, neck sculpting, or neck contouring—is a cosmetic procedure designed to eliminate wrinkles, loose skin, excess fat, and sagging muscle tissue. A neck lift is equivalent to the lower half of a full facelift. It can involve any combination of liposuction (removal of fatty deposits), cervicoplasty (lifting and removal of excess skin), and/or platysmaplasty (tightening of muscles). Ultimately, it restores the athletic, youthful contours of the neck, letting you hold your head up high. A neck lift can also be performed along with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as eyelid lifting and a facelift. It is not a one-size-fits-all procedure but a set of approaches tailored to work with each patient’s unique anatomy and cosmetic goals.
Turn back the clock for a smooth, youthful neck
Time, gravity, genetics, and changes in your weight can all contribute to a sagging or lax neck area that prematurely ages your appearance.
A smooth, contoured neck can help frame your face and accentuate your natural beauty. A neck lift is a customized approach to lifting and tightening the neck, allowing the surgeon to address the unique issues different patients may want to resolve in this area, including but not limited to a “double” chin, loose or crepey skin, or banded muscle tissue. This comprehensive procedure yields results that can last up to ten years. A neck lift may also be combined with other procedures, such as a facelift or eyelid lift (blepharoplasty). Dr. Stone is passionate about working alongside her patients to help them define their surgical goals and customize an approach that provides beautiful, lasting results.
A targeted approach for a common problem area
If you’re satisfied with the skin on your upper face but want to get rid of some imperfections around your neck, a neck lift may be just for you. You’re a good fit for the procedure if you:
While procedures like MyEllevate® may be desirable for individuals experiencing earlier stages of laxness in the neck, a neck lift can reverse more advanced sagging, wrinkling, or fullness. Schedule a consultation to discuss your options and determine whether a neck lift is a good choice for you.

"Everything went very smooth”
My brother who’s special needs was turned away from several different surgeons until we met Dr. Stone. She made us feel comfortable, explained everything very thoroughly and her staff promptly scheduled my brother for his surgery at Baylor. I was dreading this surgery for him due to his multiple infections as well as his medical problems. However everything went very smooth and he was finally infection free after months of going back and forth with different doctors. I appreciate everything Dr. Stone did and would refer anyone to her in a heartbeat.

"Dr. Stone was phenomenal!”
Dr. Stone was phenomenal! I drove hours to see her as she’s one of the only providers for my daughter’s insurance. She took so much time out of her day to listen to me and hear me out when know one would. I have had such a rough time getting my special need child to a clinic for her oral surgery needs and she went out of her way to get her scheduled for her surgery. She was very personal, patient, warm, caring and clearly brilliant. Her staff is equally as fantastic. I recommend Dr. Stone to anyone. God bless you.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Dr. Stone and her staff are out of this world amazing! I went in looking for lip fillers due to wanting the “sexy pout”. Dr. Stone talked me through the process and told me she would not overfill for the sake of having big lips. Which I LOVED. She said we would start small and work our way up. I decided to go through with treatment and I am in LOVE with my lips! Plump but natural! 10 out of 10 highly recommend!

"Dr. Stone bedside manners the best her facility and staff was top notch”
I Recently visited Stone Surgical Arts to get my four wisdom teeth removed and honestly couldn’t of felt more safe! I am a registered dental assistant who assists the doctor during extractions and other treatments and to be frank I’m not a fan of blood. Being a registered dental assistant I know what goes on during an extraction and to be completely honest with you I don’t think I would be able to go through it myself. I would have to be sedated. Dr. Stone made sure I was in good hand before sedation not only was Dr. Stone bedside manners the best her facility and staff was top notch. Her office manager Dorsey confirmed appointment with me and explained everything prior to surgery and even called to follow up with after care. If you’re in fear of extraction I highly recommend Dr. Stone and her staff.

Your Neck Lift will be performed in Dr. Mona Stone‘s surgery center located in Westlake, TX. The procedure will start with a combination of local anesthesia and sedation or with general anesthesia. Once it takes effect, incisions are created—typically under the chin and/or behind the ears. Any combination of liposuction, cervicoplasty, and platysmaplasty will then be performed.
Stone Surgical Arts also uses a long-lasting local anesthesia that continues to provide pain relief in the first days of recovery. Additionally, a platelet-rich fibrin (PRP) or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment may be given to promote better healing. You will need someone to drive you home from your procedure and plenty of time–typically 10-14 days–to rest and recover afterward.
Healing after your surgery
After your neck lift is completed, surgical drains may be inserted to eliminate excess fluid from the area—these thin plastic tubes are usually taken out the next day. Here are some important reminders to take note of during your recovery period:
Your surgical team will provide detailed instructions for your post-operative care.
The simple elegance of a shapely neck and jawline
With results that last up to ten years, a neck lift is the most comprehensive procedure for rejuvenating the neck and under-chin area. A neck lift provides dramatic but natural-looking lifting and contouring that streamlines your profile and helps to accentuate your chin and face.
Patients tend to be amazed at the transformation this procedure makes to their overall appearance, providing a more youthful, athletic, and shapely look to the face and upper body. Dr. Stone’s patients benefit from her extensive experience as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and her careful eye for anatomical structure and aesthetics. If you are generally happy with the tone and contours of your face but have noticed sagging, wrinkles, or loss of shapeliness in your neck, a neck lift can help you target this common problem area.
Set up your consultation
Contact the office at Stone Surgical Arts to schedule a consultation and learn more about the neck lift procedure. During your consultation with Dr. Stone, you’ll discuss your goals and learn about your options. You’ll also talk about important factors such as:
Dr. Stone will analyze your neck and face structure, assist you in outlining your goals for surgery, and help you compare options for achieving those goals. Our mission is to facilitate a smooth experience from the moment you walk in the door. Dr. Mona Stone can perform your neck lift in Westlake and help you achieve a more contoured and attractive neck. Get in touch today for a consultation and bring back the younger, beautiful you. Contact us: (817) 918-3666
A neck lift may be performed at the same time as other procedures, such as a face and/or eyelid lift. At your consultation, you will learn more about various rejuvenating techniques that may be combined into one procedure.
A neck lift is not intended to reduce jowls, which involve facial tissue, and, therefore, would be addressed during a facelift.
A neck lift uses small incisions behind the ears and/or under the chin to give the surgeon access to subdermal and submental tissues and delivers results that can last up to ten years. On the other hand, MyEllevate® involves the placement of internal sutures via small punctures with results lasting up to five years.
Yes. You will need help getting home and 10-14 days of downtime to rest and recover.
Since a neck lift is a cosmetic procedure, most health insurance companies do not cover its costs. Get the full price details by getting a consultation with Dr. Stone.
