Dr. Steely performs neck lift surgery (platysmaplasty) to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the neck for a smoother look. He also tightens neck muscles to redefine the jawline, restore a normal chin and create a younger, fitter-looking facial appearance. A neck lift is often combined with a facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery and/or liposuction surgery for a proportional aesthetic solution.
Many males would like very much to remove the hanging skin below their chin – the so-called “turkey neck” – and do not wish to undergo a full neck lift. For these patients, Dr. Steely uses a special procedure called the T-Z-plasty (see below) which has a high rate of satisfaction among patients who have it performed.
Dr. Robert Steely specializes in plastic surgery and strives to deliver world-class neck lift surgery in Houston, TX. Dr. Robert Steely can provide you with a beautiful and natural-looking appearance.

Neck Lift Before and After
The Neck Lift Procedure
When he performs a neck lift in combination with both a facelift and eyelid surgery, Dr. Steely makes an incision under the chin or through minimal incisions hidden behind the ears. Any excess fat is removed, and the underlying muscle bands are tightened that subsequently recontours the neck.
When the neck lift is done at the same time as a facelift, Dr. Steely lifts and re-drapes the skin over the tightened neck muscles.
The T-Z-Plasty Procedure
This procedure is popular with males seeking only to remove the excess from the central neck and wish no additional cosmetic surgery. It is a simple, short, outpatient procedure. Dr. Steely limits all incisions to the neck area. He removes the excess skin and fat, and then tightens the neck muscle (platysma) by means of a Z-plasty.
