Neck Lift

With the frequency of online meetings continuing to increase, you have probably spent a great deal more time looking at yourself than you did when you were alone at your desk. With quick glances in the mirror during the day, most people are checking their face and teeth. At home, you may be committed to a facial care routine that leaves your skin glowing and camera ready for every meeting. But with so much focus on your face, have you taken the opportunity to examine your neck? If your routine care and treatments have not included this delicate area, it may give away your age.

What Happens to the Neck as We Age?

Just like the rest of your face, as you age, the neck muscles under the skin relax and the looser skin is subjected to the forces of gravity. This loose skin can develop into folds, unfortunately known as “turkey neck,” since it resembles the skin beneath a turkey’s beak. Even if your skin is not in turkey territory, it may still have developed significant wrinkles or deep horizontal lines, a side-effect of our lifestyles of looking down at keyboards, devices and even books.

How Do I Correct My Neck?

If your face and neck do not match in age, you are not alone. It is a common phenomenon to overlook the neck. While traditional facelifts may correct the top of your neck near the jawline, they will not address the neck itself. For a proper neck makeover, neck lift surgery will tighten the entire neck. When considering a neck lift, there are other procedures that can refresh your face for a completely rejuvenated look. Facelifts and neck lifts are often performed together, but they can also be completed separately. Like a facelift, a neck lift’s goal is to restore a natural, youthful and toned appearance to the area.

If you are noticing the signs of aging in your neck, or if your neck does not match the youthful tone of your face, contact the office of Dr. Munique Maia today to explore the facelift, neck lift and other natural-looking enhancements available to you.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
