Neck Lift in West Palm Beach and Jupiter, FL
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, causing it to sag and wrinkle. The skin on the neck is not as thick as other parts of the body, and therefore can wrinkle easily. Although we will never be able to turn back the clock completely, surgical procedures such as neck lifts can reduce or even eliminate the effects that time has on our skin. We serve patients in Palm Springs, Wellington, West Palm Beach, Jupiter, Lake Worth, and all other surrounding areas.

What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that concentrates on the jowls and loose skin and fat on the neck. The incision is made around the earlobe and behind the ear to the lower scalp, allowing access to the skin and fat in these areas so muscles can be tightened and excess fat can be removed.

Additional FAQs About Neck Lift Surgery
What are the Potential Risks of Neck Lift Surgery?
As with any form of plastic surgery, neck lift surgery is associated with some potential risks. These include, but are not limited to: adverse reaction to anesthesia, changes in sensation, scarring, allergic reactions, and infection.
What Type of Aftercare is Required for Neck Lift Surgery?
Following your neck lift procedure, you may experience slight swelling or bruising. This is normal and will subside in about three days. Rest is important, but this procedure will not confine you to your bed. You will be able to return to daily, non-strenuous activities in a few days following your procedure. Pain medication can be used to control discomfort. It is important to follow all patient care instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure a quick and safe recovery and see the results that you desire.
Does a Neck Lift Leave Scars?
Yes, this procedure will result in some scarring. However, the location of the scars will most likely be hidden and not visible to most people. Your surgeon will place incisions as carefully as possible to minimize this.
When Will I be Able to Return to Work After My Neck Lift
You may be are able to return to work two weeks after this surgery, but it is important to review this with your surgeon. Everyone heals differently and recovery will depend on your post-surgery regimen.
Can I Continue to Exercise After My Neck Lift?
You should be able to exercise a couple weeks after this procedure; however, it is important to wait until you are cleared to do so. Be sure to follow your specific post-op instructions provided by your surgeon for optimal results.
How Should I Plan for My Neck Lift?
Before your neck lift, it is important to plan ahead. Most importantly, you should stop smoking at least six weeks before surgery and avoid taking aspirin, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and certain supplements. You will need assistance directly after your procedure, especially to relieve you of any strenuous chores or responsibilities. Drink a lot of water before and after your surgery; water helps your body to heal. Additional preparation for your neck lift procedure will be discussed during your consultation.
Are There Non-Surgical Options for Neck Treatments?
If you are looking for treatments specific to the neck or under the chin only, but a neck lift is not right for you, we offer Kybella®. Kybella® is a skin rejuvenation product that destroys fat cells under your chin, ridding you of that “double chin.” Kybella® will reduce the fullness under the chin and leave you with a sculpted, well-formed facial profile. It is important to understand that Kybella® doesn’t tighten your skin, as it is used to melt fat. If you have an abundance of excess skin under your chin, then this may not be right for you. Schedule a consultation to discuss your concerns and our surgeons will help guide you to the procedure that is best for you.
