Neck Lift

There’s an understated sensuality to an elegant décolletage. On the one hand, a smooth and sculpted neck evokes images of youthfulness and elegance. Whereas a sagging, wrinkled neck will make you look older than you actually are. A neck lift rejuvenates the appearance of the neck and refines the contours of the jawline for a sophisticated and youthful silhouette.

Why Consider A Neck Lift?

The neck is often overlooked and underrated when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Yet, the signs of aging on the neck — sagging jowls, crepey skin, and accumulated fat deposits — can also be restored and rejuvenated with plastic surgery.

A neck lift improves the appearance of the neck by removing excess skin, tightening the nearby muscles, and contouring the jawline. It is an excellent solution for addressing the dreaded “turkey wattle” — that area below your chin that looks like a hanging flap of skin, and to eliminate the double chin.

Other benefits of a neck lift include:

  • Rejuvenated neck skin
  • A slimmer neck
  • Reduced vertical bands
  • An elegantly contoured décolletage
  • Reduction in wrinkles and sagging
  • More defined jaw area
  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduction in submental fat (double chin)
  • Long-lasting results
  • Improved body-confidence

The Custom Neck Lift At Dr. Patty Miami

At Dr. Patty Miami, neck lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis at our luxurious cosmetic and surgical center. During your complimentary consultation, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon will discuss your concerns and evaluate the current state of your neck to create a tailor-made surgical plan that addresses your unique aesthetic preferences.

The location of the incisions, extent of the procedure, and surgical approach will be customized based on your specific case and anatomical features. Options include:

Traditional neck lift: the traditional or classic neck lift involves making an incision below the ear, traveling down around the ear and under the hairline behind the neck. This allows your surgeon to remove excess skin and tighten the neck muscles while hiding the scars inconspicuously within the hair and back of the neck. If you need liposuction, a small incision below the neck may also be required.

Mini neck lift: a mini neck lift will not provide the same dramatic results as a full neck lift, but it is a good option for younger patients with mild vertical banding and sagging. It also involves incisions behind the ears and/or the chin, but the scars will be shorter and the recovery time faster.

As Seen On


Recovering From A Neck Lift

Your Dr. Patty Miami surgical team will provide you with a customized recovery plan. In general, this is what you can expect from your neck lift surgery recovery.

Immediately After

Immediately following your surgery, you’ll have the opportunity to rest at our soothing recovery suite until you are ready to go home. Your neck and lower face area may be wrapped with a light compression garment or elastic bandages to promote healing and reduce swelling. Avoid all types of physical activity immediately after your procedure.

1 Week

Depending on the extent of your correction, you may be able to go back to work and your routine activities as soon as one week after your neck lifting surgery. It’s common to experience minor swelling and discomfort during the first week of recovery, which can be addressed with prescription medication. Continue avoiding strenuous activities, including lifting and bending for at least 3 weeks.

2-3 Weeks

Most of the swelling and discomfort should have subsided by now. You may resume non-strenuous activities 3 weeks after your procedure unless your doctor recommends otherwise.

1+ Months

You may feel well enough to go back to your normal activities, including upper body workouts. The complete results of your neck lift surgery may not be fully apparent until about 3 months have passed, but you will start to see significant improvements within the first week after your procedure.

Combining A Neck Lift With Other Procedures

A neck lift can be combined with other cosmetic enhancements for an all-around facial rejuvenation. In some cases, a [facelift] might be recommended to achieve a balanced harmony between the face and the neck. These procedures can be performed simultaneously .

Other procedures that typically complement a neck lift include:

  • [Chin augmentation]
  • [Rhinoplasty]
  • [Brow lift]
  • [Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)]
  • [Dermal fillers]
  • [Botox]

Neck Lift FAQs

How Much Is A Neck Lift In Miami, FL?

Yes! It is completely possible to get a neck lift without a facelift. However, your surgeon may recommend getting a facelift  and neck lift together to achieve a more balanced rejuvenation.

Can I Get A Neck Lift Without A Facelift?

Neck lifting surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so the procedure will not be painful. You can expect some mild discomfort during the first few days following your surgery. Your custom recovery plan will include instructions for managing the pain.

Is Neck Lift Surgery Painful?

All surgical procedures leave scars. However, the cosmetic surgeons at Dr. Patty Miami use the utmost care in camouflaging the incisions in inconspicuous places so there are no visible scars from the procedure.
