Reduce your fuller face and eliminate your turkey neck with a Direct Neck Lift by Dr. Daniel Gould. A direct neck lift in Beverly Hills or “Weekend Lift” is an outpatient cosmetic procedure that is a far more effective neck rejuvenation option than non-surgical neck treatments like injections or fillers.
A direct neck lift or "Weekend Lift" is a procedure for younger patients who want improved tightness in the neck and facial rejuvenation but are not ready for a facelift. Patients are often in their 30 to mid-40s. This Weekend Lift combines a direct deep plane neck lift with Morpheus8 microneedling and blepharoplasty with or without chin augmentation, fat grafting, or other procedures.
During your consultation with Dr. Gould, he will discuss each procedure and what facial-related concerns they address. Then, he will personalize a treatment plan specific to your needs. Schedule your consultation at our Beverly Hills location today to learn more about whether the Direct Neck Lift is right for you.
Dr. Daniel Gould's procedure has been used to achieve desired cosmetic results for his patients, including those who wish to improve their appearance following dramatic weight loss or those seeking smoother, more defined jawlines and necks. Unlike non-surgical neck treatments—which can be harsh on the skin and only offer temporary changes—facial contouring through a direct neck lift can deliver long-lasting benefits that result in a smoother-looking neck area with a more defined jawline.
Dr. Gould believes that anyone who wants to improve their appearance and change their neck and facial contours is a good candidate for his signature procedure. However, he also emphasizes that patients must be overall good health before undergoing cosmetic procedures.
Look Years Younger
Your outpatient procedure includes a deep plane neck lift with Morpheus microneedling, an RF technology that helps tighten and firm loose skin. The unique benefit of the "Weekend Lift" is that it does not leave a scar in front. The first incision starts under your chin. The second incision is placed at the back of your ear without going into your hairline. Then the skin above your neck is treated with radiofrequency microneedling, which firms and tightens lax skin and stimulates collagen production. Dr. Gould's innovative multi-modal approach preserves what they have to prevent the need for a facelift in the future.

You can expect one to two weeks of downtime to heal; however, Dr. Gould will have specific post-operative instructions to follow to ensure a successful recovery. As you heal, your defined jawline will become more apparent. You can expect to experience some swelling and slight bruising, but these side effects will subside in three to five days. Your smoother-looking neck may even help you stand taller and make you feel more confident. You'll probably see a marked improvement in how people perceive your age, but because aging is an individualized process for each person, no two results will look exactly alike.
Once any swelling dissipates, you will notice changes and improvements to your jawline and upper neck area. Many people consider a direct neck lift when they want to address the fullness in their lower face and get rid of their turkey neck. Your direct neck lift results often last for ten to 15 years. However, your skin continues to age just as you do. Dr. Gould will recommend prolonging your results with strong UV sunscreen and skin tightening treatments such as lasers, RF, or ultrasound technology for boosted collagen production.
You are kept quite comfortable during surgery as you are under general anesthesia. The next day, Dr. Gould will have you undergo a hyperbaric treatment that delivers oxygen to your cells and have you receive a lymphatic massage to thwart additional swelling after surgery. Dr. Gould’s unique post-surgical treatments aid in rapid recovery to reduce pain and discomfort after surgery.
The two most common side effects from a facelift include developing a hematoma—which is a build-up of blood under the skin and usually results from too much activity. Dr. Gould can drain the excess fluid with a syringe if this happens. The second common side effect is an infection at the incision sites. You will receive post-treatment instructions for caring for your incisions, including how to keep your face clean for optimal results. There are extremely rare risks of nerve injury, which is less than 0.9% in this technique. More commonly, swelling in the face and the muscles can interfere with muscle function and make your smile appear heavy for a few weeks as swelling subsides.
A direct neck lift takes two to three hours, but the length of time depends on whether additional surgeries are performed simultaneously. You'll stay in an aftercare facility overnight, then rest at home for about a week. Your new, defined jawline and smoother-looking neck will be fully visible after about one month.
The cost of a direct neck lift varies according to the surgeon, area, and your specific treatment plan. After your consultation, Dr. Gould's patient coordinator will discuss the cost of your procedure and inform you of payment and financing options for your convenience.
The "Weekend Lift" is a cosmetic surgical procedure and is not covered by medical insurance.
Depending on your neck's condition, several non-surgical options can aid in facial rejuvenation. For example, Botox and Ultherapy are a few of the most effective non-invasive cosmetic procedures for tightening skin laxity around your neck. These treatments are typically recommended for men and women who want their natural facial appearance restored without surgery. In addition, your non-surgical neck lift can be done in under an hour at your convenience, so you can wear makeup immediately afterward if desired. Treatment results are immediate with no significant downtime.
Dr. Gould will discuss all of your surgical and non-surgical options during your consultation. However, non-surgical treatments are temporary, and repeated sessions may be needed to maintain your results.
