What Is a Neck Lift?

Neck lifts are surgical procedures to improve the appearance of the signs of aging in the neck, including jowls, sagging skin, excess fat, or banding. A neck lift can rejuvenate your appearance by tightening the skin to revitalize the appearance of the jawline and chin for a sleeker, slimmer profile. Neck lifts are often performed in conjunction with facelifts to create a finished, polished facial appearance.

A neck lift can improve:

  • Skin and muscle laxity
  • Poor jawline definition
  • Jowls or pre-jowls
  • Double chin
  • Wrinkles in the neck
  • Sagging skin or fat deposits on the jawline
  • Muscle bands

Deep Plane Neck Lifts

Dr. Bellamy specializes in deep plane facelifts and deep plane neck lifts, one of the most advanced modern facial rejuvenation techniques. A deep plane neck lift specifically focuses on releasing and repositioning deep connective tissues and the SMAS layer through smaller incisions. Deep plane facelifts and neck lifts address the problem of aging skin at its root and offer incredibly effective and natural-looking results.

Often, these procedures can be performed under local anesthesia and provide other benefits, including:

  • Shorter surgical time
  • More natural-looking results than traditional procedures
  • Visibly younger-looking skin
  • Restored natural volume
  • Excess skin removal
  • Sleeker facial and neck contours
  • Quicker recovery
  • Less noticeable scarring
  • Longer lasting results

Complementary Procedures

Often, patients considering a neck lift are also concerned about the signs of aging in their mid or upper face as well as the appearance of their skin. Typically, neck lift results often rely on full facial rejuvenation to create a fully refreshed, youthful look.

For dramatic facial transformation, other rejuvenation procedures can be performed simultaneously, including:

While a neck lift helps restore the appearance of your neck, maintaining the youthful appearance of your skin is also crucial. Dr. Bellamy recommends non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments that will work in conjunction with a neck lift to ensure optimal results.

All surgeries are performed in our facilities that have two state-of-the-art, fully certified AAAASF operating rooms.

Preparing for Your Neck Lift Procedure

In the week before your surgery, we advise you to maintain a healthy, high-protein, low-salt diet. You will also need to stop taking most herbal supplements, especially those containing garlic, fish oil, or zinc. Also, stop taking medicines containing aspirin, as these can cause additional bleeding or bruising.

During your consultation, Dr. Bellamy will review your current medications and provide instructions on how to proceed with those. Most prescription medications, especially blood pressure medications, should be continued.

For at least four weeks before and after your procedure, smoking, vaping, or any nicotine products are strictly prohibited. Nicotine constricts blood vessels and affects the body’s ability to heal itself, potentially impacting your recovery and results.

Surgical Mastery Meets Aesthetic Artistry

Neck Lift Procedure and Recovery

To improve the appearance of the neck and jawline, Dr. Bellamy will create small, well-concealed incisions, typically near the ears, to remove excess skin and fat and tighten the underlying muscles. This will result in a smoother, more defined jawline and a more youthful-looking neck. Depending on the individual patient’s needs, Dr. Bellamy may also use liposuction to remove excess fat from the neck area.

The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete.


As neck lifts are typically outpatient surgeries, you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first few days. You may require assistance with simple daily tasks. You may also be prescribed pain medications and antibiotics.

Plan to take approximately one to two weeks off work for your recovery. During this time, you should avoid strenuous activities, including exercising or heavy lifting, for four to six weeks; however, Dr. Bellamy advises gentle walking as soon as you feel well enough.

Swelling, bruising, and numbness are common effects following a neck lift. To reduce swelling and bruising, sleep with your head slightly elevated and use cold compresses. Following a neck lift, you may be required to wear a compression dressing to minimize swelling and help your body adapt to its new contour.

How Soon Will I See My Neck Lift Results?

After a neck lift, most patients will experience swelling or bruising that lasts one to two weeks. Residual swelling may take several weeks to months to completely resolve. You will see improved results as your neck heals, revealing a more youthful profile and facial appearance.

With optimal results and recommended follow-up care, the best Palm Beach neck lift results leave you with a youthful, lifted facial appearance with results that may last for 10 to 15 years.
