neck lift IN ORLANDO


A Neck Lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that serves to improve the visible signs of aging along the jawline and neck. This procedure targets the excess fat and relaxed skin that creates jowls in order to give the patient a more youthful, sharply-defined jawline. The procedure also removes fatty deposits under the chin as well as any muscle banding in the neck for more natural contours. Choose a Neck Lift in Orlando by our board certified plastic surgeon

Who is a good candidate for a Neck Lift?

A good candidate for most plastic surgeries, including neck lifts, is someone who has good health, doesn’t smoke, carries a positive outlook and has realistic expectations about the final result. So, what else makes a “good” candidate?

  • Self consciousness about aging skin
  • Good upper face but excess wrinkling or sagging in lower face, jawline, and neck.
  • Your skin has dropped, but still has elasticity
  • Noticeable jowls or muscle banding in neck
  • Hanging skin underneath your chin
  • Heightened anxiety about social situations due to drooping jaws and loose skin around the neck

How is a Neck Lift performed?

During a Neck Tuck (platysmaplasty), the surgeon will make a small incision under the chin where the platysma muscle is found. From the incision, the muscle is tightened, the excess skin removed, and the incision sutured. Surgery time is about 2 - 2.5 hours and the scarring is very minimal, with only a small, horizontal line under the chin.

During a Lower Facelift (lower rhytidectomy), the surgeon will make a small incision under the chin for the tightening of the neck muscles, and an incision before each ear for treating the jawline. From the incision in front of the ears, the muscles of the jawline are lifted and the excess fat removed. Surgery time is about 5 hours and the scarring is also very minimal.

Are there different Neck Lift procedures?

Neck Tuck: A Neck Tuck, or a platysmaplasty, only addresses the bands in the neck that tend to hang and make the neck look like it is sagging and stretched. The procedure works by tightening the muscles in the neck to reduce the look of “banding.”

Lower Face Lift: A Lower Face Lift, or lower rhytidectomy, removes the excess fat or loose skin around the jawline, and also addresses the banding and loose skin around the neck. This procedure is a bit more extensive and takes a few more hours to complete.
