Dr. Jose Rodríguez-Feliz is an experienced plastic surgeon who specializes in deep contour neck lifts, modern facelift techniques, and eyelid surgery.

What Is A Neck Lift?

The older you get, the looser your skin and muscle become. In addition, fat deposits can build up on different areas of the face, just as under the chin. A neck lift, also known as a platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic procedure meant to improve visible signs of aging in your jaw and neck.

During your consultation with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz, you will discuss your concerns and your cosmetic goals. He will then customize a plan designed just for you. As he knows no two patients are the same, your neck lift procedure can include a combination of skin reduction, muscle tightening (also known as platysmaplasty), ultrasound sound-energy liposuction, J-Plasma & Renuvion for skin tightening, RF microneedling for skin resurfacing, and collagen stimulation, and much more.

What to Expect During a Neck Lift

Neck lifts are outpatient surgical procedures. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz performs all facial surgery under local and/or twilight sedation. Without the use of general anesthesia, bruising, swelling and recovery times are substantially minimized. Learn more about the benefits of Twilight Sedation during your facial surgery with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz. After your neck lift surgery, you will recover in Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s state-of-the-art accredited surgery center and be monitored as you come out of light sedation.

Why Should I Receive a Neck Lift?

This procedure focuses on your lower face and neck, as some patients are still happy with the rest of their faces and don’t feel ready for a full facelift. When your neck area doesn’t match your upper face in appearance, a neck lift can be the best option. dditionally, it is common to undergo a neck lift and facelift simultaneously due to both areas aging at the same rate.

A Choosing Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz to perform your facial surgery means you’re in the hands of a skilled surgeon with expertise on the most modern and effective face and neck lift techniques. Neck lift surgery can treat several issues, including the following:

  • Loose skin on your neck
  • Extra fat under your chin area
  • Unnecessary lumps or rolls on your neck from muscle banding in your neck
  • Extra fat and skin on your lower face, causing the skin to sag and create jowls

The Neck Lift Procedure

From there, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will complete one of two options:

Traditional Neck Lift Incision

This kind of procedure involves an incision that starts in front of the ears, goes around your ears, and ends in the bottom back of your head hidden along the hairline. After the incision, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will reshape and reposition fat and tissue around the neck and jowls. Many times, the platysma muscle is tightened as well either from the front or lateral skin-platysma displacement. Once the contouring is complete, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will redrape your skin and remove the extra tissue. It’s also possible there will be another incision under the chin for liposuction, skin tightening, and/or to repair any muscle. If deep neck contouring is required such as removal of submandibular glands, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz is one of the few surgeons that specialize in submandibular gland resection.

Limited Incision Neck Lift

This is a much smaller incision focused on the areas behind the ear hidden along the hairline without any visible incisions in front of the ears. This technique is most beneficial for patients experiencing mild signs of aging and laxity. The technique best suited for you will be addressed by Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz during your first in-depth consultation.

Neck Lift Surgery FAQ

Due to genetics, gravity, stress, and environment, your neck and jaw can age faster than the rest of your face. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your jawline and neck, a neck lift is designed to reshape them and restore balance to your overall look. Even more than your age genetics play a big role in the aging of the neck and it is very common to see patients in their early 40s seeking a neck lift. This is especially true now with the results attainable with modern advanced techniques.

When you wake up from your procedure, you may notice that your neck feels tight, which is normal. There may be some soreness and swelling, but the pain is generally minimal. There may also be some bruising, which will contribute to how your neck feels. Most patients use over-the-counter pain relievers as needed.

Yes, but because the incisions are made around the ears, along the hairline, and under the chin, they are generally not visible and fade over time.

Neck lifts are most often considered elective surgeries and as such, your costs will be out of pocket. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz offers financing and payment options for you if needed.

Bruising and swelling usually last a couple of weeks. Once the initial swelling fades, you will really be able to see the new contours of your neck. It can take up to three full months for the swelling to completely subside. It’s also important to avoid any heavy lifting while you heal to keep your stitches from coming apart as they heal. This includes lifting children and pets.

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that patients interested in having a neck lift done in Miami have a consultation before they schedule any surgery in order to establish their eligibility. Good candidates are in relatively good health, do not smoke, do not have chronic diseases that impair healing, and are unhappy with signs of aging on the face and neck.
