About Neck Lift Surgery
Are you wearing turtlenecks or scarves, even in the summer to hide the loose, flabby skin on your neck? At DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery in Palm Beach, FL, we provide neck lift surgery to improve the appearance of an aging neckline. This cosmetic surgery tightens the area beneath your chin and along the neck to remove a "double chin" or "turkey neck." By taking away the loose skin and fat while using a tightening technique to result in a smoother, natural neckline, a neck lift can provide striking enhancements to your profile.

"I just had my initial consultation with Dr DeRosa and was very satisfied, after having seen two or three other facial, plastic surgeons prior. I was highly impressed with her passion, obvious skill and competency. In today's high volume, fast paced, often automaton medical world, her reassuring and gentle manner, after my recent facial trauma, was certainly refreshing, as well as her thoroughness in explaining her proposed treatment plan and followup visits . I will definitely be returning for my continued recovery from my facial injury. I highly recommend her services to the Palm Beach community as I am sure her new office in Palm Beach will be booming and successful for years to come."- M.D. / Google / Mar 15, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"The DeRosa clinic is one of my favorite spots in Boston. I schedule visits around Dr. DeRosa and lead aesthetician, Steven Giannetta’s availability. The practice is located centrally on Newbury Street in the heart of Back Bay. The experience is pleasant and effortless from ease of communication with appointment schedulers to greeting when you walk through the doors. The office is gorgeous with natural light shining through the lobby front windows and meticulously kept modern and spacious treatment rooms. Dr. Derosa’s hallmark is enhancement with emphasis on a natural aesthetic. I never feel rushed when speaking with her and that holds true with the rest of her team. Each member of the team shares an attitude of professionalism, excellence and compassion. Although there is not a treatment I have not liked, I am personally obsessed with dermaplanning and the Vi peel. My only complaint is not having a DeRosa clinic in New York...yet."- E.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Dr Derosa did an incredible job on my daughter... we specifically chose her because my daughter had breathing difficulties and we wanted someone double board certified. We met her after interviewing 3 other surgeons... and we adored her immediately. The night before surgery I saw the negative reviews she has gotten and it made me very nervous... but then I remembered that the percentage was tiny in comparison to all the surgeries she has performed. She knew exactly how to calm my daughter. We are now a week out of our surgery and all I can say is she was amazing. The nursing staff raved about her at Mass Eye and Ear...she listened to us and changed as little as possible. My daughter is thrilled and we are too...she is a true artist. We are thankful to all the lovely staff too."- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
Is Neck Lift Surgery For You?
Men and women considering neck lift surgery generally have visibly loose, hanging skin along the neckline. The loose skin is usually caused by many factors, including aging and significant weight loss. Whatever the reason may be, loose neck skin produces an unflattering look, which in most cases can only be addressed with skin excision and a tightening technique. If your weight is stable, but you feel embarrassed by sagging folds of skin, surface lines, and wrinkles along the neck, a neck lift treatment may be a great option for you.
Neck Lift Surgical Technique
During a neck lift treatment, IV sedation or general anesthesia is used. During the surgery, our facial plastic surgeon will make incision points behind or in front of your ears or underneath your chin. If pockets of fat exist, the first step often is to perform liposuction and remove excess fat. Next, any sagging or hanging skin is carefully excised. After removing the fat, we pull the underlying tissue and remaining skin tight. This method of skin tightening is performed until we have achieved the desired contour. Although we sew sutures at the incision area, scarring is usually not noticeable because we place them under your chin and behind your ears. During your surgery, we might also use a nonsurgical fat reduction injection, such as KYBELLA, to enhance the results. In addition, other nonsurgical alternatives can help the skin's texture, such as microneedling with PRP and chemical peels, to create a glowing, younger-looking appearance.
What to Expect with Neck Lift
After a neck lift, you will probably have some bruising, swelling, and moderate discomfort, but these will go away in a few days. To ensure patients have a healthy, safe recovery, it's important to rest and avoid exercise, strenuous movements, and activities for the next couple of weeks. During this time, patients should avoid fitted tops. You should see visible outcomes almost immediately. Also, neck lift surgery can make a huge impact to an individual's profile, shaving years off their appearance.
Neck Lift Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a neck lift cost?
During your consultation, we will create a treatment plan and discuss the cost of your neck lift. As soon as one of our doctors has developed your treatment plan, we will estimate prices for the anesthesia, facility, and more. To make your neck surgery easier to afford, DeRosa Clinic Plastic Surgery takes many payment methods and offers information on low-interest financing.
What about nonsurgical options?
Surgery is the best way to eliminate loose skin, particularly if it hangs or droops. While we offer several nonsurgical skin tightening treatments, surgery can dramatically smooth and redefine the contours of your neck. A popular minimally invasive treatment called KYBELLA reduces fat in the upper neck, which causes a double chin; however, it doesn't improve excess skin.
Will I have visible scars?
Neck lift surgery does require an incision beneath the chin, as well as two more near the ears. However, these are made so the scars are difficult for others to see. During neck lift surgery, we try very hard to avoid visible scarring. A team member will provide scar care instructions to help your incisions heal properly so they are thin and flat.
Can I combine a neck lift with other facial surgeries?
At your consultation, we can discuss your other goals and additional treatments, like a facelift or a chin implant. To achieve the best results, it is common for these additional procedures to be combined. If you are concerned about a weak chin or undefined jawline, tell us so we can create a comprehensive treatment plan.
Should I get a neck lift or liposuction?
Depending on your needs and goals, you may want to get a neck lift with liposuction. This may work best if you have both excess skin and pockets of fat in your neck. We can help you decide whether a lift, liposuction, or a combination of both treatments should be part of your surgical plan.
