A neck lift is a transformative procedure that offers numerous benefits for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance. As we age, the skin and muscles in the neck can lose their elasticity, leading to sagging, wrinkles, and the dreaded “turkey neck.” A neck lift effectively addresses these concerns by using advanced surgical techniques. In addition to the amazing cosmetic improvements, a neck lift can also boost self-confidence, helping our clients feel more beautiful in their own skin. Discover the benefits of a neck lift at Palmer Cosmetic Surgery in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to rejuvenate the neck and jawline area and reduce the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkling by tightening the skin and underlying muscles, resulting in a smoother, more youthful contour. With a neck lift you can officially bid your ‘turkey neck’ and ‘jowls’ goodbye, and welcome a more defined, youthful contour.

Under the meticulous care of Dr. Russel Palmer, a neck lift procedure can result in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Carefully removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles and tissues, Dr. Palmer transforms the neck area, harmonizing it with the rest of your facial features.

  • Increased confidence and self-esteem
  • Visible before and after improvements

Risks of a Neck Lift

As with any surgical procedure, a neck lift does carry some risks. While a neck lift can provide remarkable rejuvenation, it does come with potential risks such as infection, scarring, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. It’s important to discuss these risks with your surgeon to ensure you are fully informed and prepared for the procedure. However, thanks to the expertise of Dr. Russel Palmer and his seasoned team, such risks are minimal.

Neck Lift Recovery

Recovery from a neck lift typically involves a short period of rest and careful post-operative care to ensure optimal results. Immediately after the procedure, patients may experience some discomfort, which usually resolves in 1-2 days and can be managed with prescribed medications and cold compresses. Keeping the head elevated, which can include sleeping in an upright position, and avoiding strenuous activity can help to minimize swelling and facilitate healing. Most patients can return to work and light activities within 3-5 days, although full recovery may take several weeks. Following your surgeon’s post-operative instructions is important for achieving the desired results.

Latest Advancement In Neck Lifts

Dr. Palmer now incorporates Renuvion skin tightening in his neck lift procedures. He applies an energy-based device to the undersurface of the skin after the surgical tightening. This produces a tighter yet more natural neck appearance, improves the quality of the skin and increases the longevity of the results.
