What is a neck lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and rejuvenate the neck. This procedure corrects aging concerns such as wrinkles and banding, provides a defined jawline, and achieves a more youthful-looking, smooth neckline. A neck lift may require a number of different techniques to achieve your aesthetic goals, which typically combine liposuction and skin tightening, and may include ultrasound technology and laser therapy to achieve the most rejuvenating, ideal results.

When to consider a neck lift

A neck lift has the ability to transform your facial appearance from one of an aged, tired look to a rejuvenated, healthy appearance.

By removing sagging skin, tightening lax muscles and improving the contour of your jawline, it can restore the youthful profile you thought was lost forever.

In general, we recommend this procedure to our patients in West Palm Beach, Jupiter FL, and surrounding areas if they possess:

  • Heavy jowls
  • Loose bands of skin
  • A “turkey wattle” appearance
  • Excessive fat underneath the chin
  • Sagging skin and wrinkles on the neck
  • A visible loss of definition along the jawline

What to expect during your neck lift

Before performing your neck lift, Dr. Murphy will invite you to schedule a private consultation with him at his Palm Beach Gardens office. During that meeting, he will talk to you about the signs of aging you’d like to address, along with your expectations and goals for surgery. He will then assess the quality of your neck skin, along with your facial appearance as a whole. From there, he will offer personalized guidance regarding how he can help you restore a smooth and youthful overall appearance. For example, some patients only need a neck lift to revitalize their look, while others will benefit from eyelid surgery or a brow lift as well for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Throughout your experience with our office, you can be assured that Dr. Murphy will always be honest with you regarding which procedures are in your best interest and will produce the precise results you want.

The recovery period associated with your West Palm Beach neck lift will vary depending on how intensive your procedure was and your body’s natural healing capabilities. However, in general we advise our patients in West Palm Beach and surrounding areas to plan for at least one to two weeks away from work. In addition, we recommend having a friend or family member stay with you for the first day or so, as moving around the house and performing simple tasks will be difficult.

During the first few days after your neck lift, it’s normal to experience swelling, bruising and pain around the treatment area. Dr. Murphy will make sure you have access to pain medication to manage any discomfort. Within the first week, we will ask you to return to our Palm Beach Gardens office, so Dr. Murphy can evaluate your progress and make sure your neck is healing properly.

Your Consultation

A consultation with Dr. Murphy leaves patients fully knowledgeable about their options. Schedule your consultation today to start on the road to facial rejuvenation. To begin the procedure, Dr. Murphy’a team will administer twilight anesthesia, which means you’ll be completely comfortable and safe during surgery. From there, he’ll create a small incision around each ear and underneath your chin. Through those discreet openings, he’ll manipulate the underlying tissues to create a natural, long lasting rejuvenation. If you suffer from lax neck muscles, he will tighten those as well. Once Dr. Murphy has successfully sculpted a refreshed and younger-looking neck, he will place your skin taut and close the incisions.
