WHAT IS A NECK LIFT?

A neck lift in Miami may combine several types of surgical procedures to achieve your desired results. Dr. Alex Earle, Miami Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon often begins the process with liposuction, which will remove excess fat to contour and smooth the neck and jaw. Hidden incisions can then be made to lift loose skin, giving the area a tighter, firmer appearance. Some people choose to have this procedure performed with others, such as a brow lift or eyelid lift, for even more significant facial rejuvenation. 

HOW LONG IS RECOVERY FROM A NECK LIFT?

“You can expect some bruising and swelling that should resolve within a few weeks,” states Dr. Natalia Vidal, Miami Plastic Surgeon, “Some swelling will last up to a few months, and your results will become clearer as the swelling decreases. Immediately after surgery, you will need to rest with your head higher than your heart and to avoid turning your head or stressing the neck area.”

The type of surgical procedures you have will determine the details of your recovery. Liposuction can cause noticeable swelling and bruising but involves no incisions, while a full neck lift will require time for incisions to heal. Follow all instructions given by Dr. Earle or Dr. Vidal to achieve your best results

WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE FROM A NECK LIFT?

You will see a tighter, more sculpted neck and jawline as the swelling goes down. You will have no more loose and sagging skin around the neck, and your jawline will look firm and contoured. You may feel much more self-confident without feeling like loose skin, and sagging jowls added age to your face. 

Results from a neck lift from Miami Plastic Surgeons Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal can last for many years. Wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure to keep the skin firm and youthful to maintain your results. You should also maintain a healthy lifestyle since your results may change with significant weight changes. 

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A NECK LIFT?

If you have loose skin around your jaw and neck that adds age to your face, you may be a good candidate. People who have fat in this area but still have resilient skin may only need liposuction, but our skin loses laxity with age. If you have too much loose skin to tighten up on its own, a neck lift may be the answer. 

HOW DO I CHOOSE A SURGEON FOR A NECK LIFT?

Both Dr. Earle and Dr. Vidal excel at neck lift procedures. Dr. Earle is double board-certified and Ivy League-educated, while Dr. Vidal has been the recipient of numerous prestigious medical fellowships.
