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.

"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
"Excellent and highly qualified. She’s busy because she’s fantastic. Her results reflect her perfectionism and caring. Best in Boston. Staff great. Facility is top notch."- J.M. / Google / Dec 19, 2020
"Dr. DeRosa did a perfect job on my rhinoplasty. I saw age and gravity were accentuating the bulbous tip and drawing down my profile when smiling. Jaimie clearly heard and saw the issue, expressed her vision, and performed professionally to give me the best result. I am very pleased. It looks great and just like the computer image initially projected. Moreover, she is very tuned in and caring. She is a lovely, highly trained, artistic, and perfectionistic. The facility was topnotch. I consulted with my doctor friends, even another top Rhinoplasty guy in Brookline, and I chose Dr. DeRosa based upon my research which highlighted her training/skills, communication, and followup care. Her staff is great. She consistently has the same topnotch anesthesiologist. I was made to feel comfortable. My result is just what I wanted. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any cosmetic procedure."- J.M. / Yelp / Dec 13, 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.
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
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.
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.
