Neck Lift Boca Raton

A neck lift is a combination of procedures used to improve the appearance of your neck. The team at FSIBR has extensive experience in contouring this delicate area.

 Is a Neck Lift Right For You?

It’s common to notice the first signs of an aging neck after 40 years of age. Patients may see loose skin and a loss of definition below the chin and jaw. Cords or banding in the neck may become more evident as the paired muscles located on either side of the neck (platysma muscles) loosen over the years. Skin becomes less elastic, and many patients develop a turkey neck or loose, sagging skin under the chin. Jawline definition is lost, and the development of the unsightly double chin.

The neck lift procedure addresses many of these issues, leaving you with an appealing complement for your facial appearance. During your operation, loose skin is tightened, the platysma muscles are adjusted, excess fatty tissue is removed, and youthful contours to the jawline and neckline are re-established.

Recognized as Boca Raton’s Top Doctor, Dr. Hancock and Dr. Klimczak have in-depth experience in the intricate process of a neck lift. As we age, the muscles and skin along the neck weaken and begin to sag resulting in excess loose skin and excess fat deposits under the chin and along the jaw. Treating a poor neck appearance can help you achieve the younger look you desire. Neck lift surgery is designed to restore a tighter, more defined neck for a more attractive and graceful appearance.

A neck lift tightens the skin, tightens sagging neck muscles and removes fatty submental tissue under the chin. The procedure can be done in combination with a face lift, or stand alone. Many of our patients choose a neck lift to address signs of aging and recontour their neck to a more youthful appearance.

Who is a candidate for Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a great procedure for an individual who is experiencing excess skin and muscle laxity on the neck. As we age, the skin on the neck can become loose and slack, excess fat and skin relaxation can create jowls, fatty deposits form under the chin, and muscle banding makes the neck appear visibly aged.

More specifically, good candidates generally have one or more of the following issues:

Muscle banding

Muscle banding is caused by the relaxation of the neck muscles and a loss of youthful fat. These vertical bands can develop following weight loss or as we age. You can develop the appearance of vertical bands along the front of your neck or along the sides, down towards your collar bone. Improving vertical banding can restore youthful fullness to your neck.

Turkey Neck

Lax neck muscles and excess skin along the midline of the neck can contribute to the appearance of a turkey neck, which can appear as redundant folds of skin along the neck. Tightening techniques are used to treat this laxity. A neck lift can create a tighter, firmer neck profile that enhances your overall appearance.

Double chin

Excess fat or skin under the chin can lead to a double chin. A distended pouch under the jaw can be caused by weight gain or the tissues becoming lax with age. A double chin can cause men and women to appear heavier than they are, or it can hide the attractive definition that many struggle to achieve along their jawline.

What is Neck Lift recovery like?

After the neck lift procedure, your neck and head may be bandaged. Your neck may feel tight and sore and you may experience some mild to moderate discomfort, which can typically be managed with prescription or over-the-counter medication. Some patients also experience temporary numbness around the incision.

You will likely experience some swelling and bruising and these side effects will begin to improve within a few days. Keeping the head and neck elevated will help to alleviate the swelling. Many patients find that they are able to return to work and social activities after approximately 10-14 days.

A comprehensive neck lift consultation with the FSIBR team is the best way to determine if you are a candidate. After examining your face and neck and having a thorough understanding of your concerns and anti-aging goals, we will discuss both non-invasive and surgical approaches, when appropriate.

Unlike other plastic surgeons who may only recommend neck lift surgery, our doctors have an innovative perspective of customizing surgical and non-surgical treatments for the neck and the face to comprehensively address signs of aging.


Because a neck lift resolves multiple cosmetic issues and no two patients are alike, we customize the procedure for each patient to ensure optimal results. A neck lift is performed as an outpatient procedure under intravenous or general anesthesia and a typical operation is approximately two hours.

We will make precise incisions in the treatment site to deliver the best results possible while minimizing the risk of scarring. Next, the underlying tissues are repositioned, and excess skin is removed. The operation concludes with precise, meticulous closure of the incisions with sutures.

Yes, a neck lift can be performed simultaneously with other cosmetic procedures. Many patients opt for combined surgeries, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery, along with a neck lift to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Combining procedures can reduce overall downtime and minimize the number of surgeries needed.
