Neck Lift Surgery in Miami, FL
Some of the most common signs of aging are the presence of wrinkles and a loosening of the skin, and one of the most prominent places for this skin laxity is in the neck. While many people try to cover up this extra, unwanted flab with turtleneck shirts and sweaters or with high collars, there is a way to help correct this issue.
With neck lift surgery (lower rhytidectomy), that unwanted flab under your chin and on your neck can be reduced, and the skin tightened to give you a more defined lower face that you won’t want to hide.Book Consultation

How Is Neck Lift Surgery Performed?
You will first schedule a consultation with Plus Cosmetic Surgery Center. At your consultation, your surgeon will discuss the specifics of the neck lift procedure as well as give you any pre- and post-operative instructions.
For the actual surgery, you will be sedated, either by intravenous (IV) sedation or general anesthesia, so that you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
Then, your cosmetic surgeon will make incisions behind your ears and under your chin. Liposuction is used to remove any stubborn fat in your neck and chin area. Your surgeon will also reposition the tissue in the neck and chin and repair the muscle there. This will also help with the appearance of vertical banding.
Depending on the extent of skin laxity and the presence of wrinkles, excess skin will be removed.
Sutures will be used to close the incisions, and you’ll begin your road to recovery.
Can Neck Lift Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?
Yes. Many patients choose to combine their neck lift with facelift surgery. However, neck lift surgery can also be combined with any number of cosmetic surgeries, including eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) and liposuction of the neck, as well as others. The benefit of combining surgical procedures is that you will have less overall recovery time, since you will be recovering from the different procedures at the same time.
What Results Can I Expect With Neck Lift Surgery?
The results of a neck lift are long lasting, though they cannot stop the natural aging process. However, with proper diet, consistent exercise, and a regimented skincare routine, you will be able to feel comfortable with your more youthful appearance for many years.
How Much Is a Neck Lift?
The cost of neck lift surgery varies for each patient and depends on the extent of the surgery as well as other factors. At your consultation, you will be given the full price of the surgery.
What Is Recovery From Neck Lift Surgery Like?
The recovery process from neck lift surgery varies with each patient and procedure. Most patients feel back to normal and can return to work one to two weeks after their surgery, though complete neck lift recovery may take several more weeks.
After your procedure, you will have bruising, swelling, and some soreness in the area. Medication can be prescribed to mitigate any pain. A compression garment may also be worn to help speed up recovery.
