Neck Lift in Jupiter & Palm Beach FL with Dr. Jason Cooper

Cosmetic Neck Surgery

A sleek, well-defined neck is one of the most important features of a youthful appearance, which partly explains the popularity of neck lift surgery. South Florida board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Cooper specializes in the rejuvenation of the face and neck, correcting common concerns like banding, wrinkling, and fullness caused by excess fat and skin. Because the neck can show signs of aging sooner than other features, this procedure can take years off of a person’s appearance

Speaking From Experience

“It’s my goal to have a patient look like a prettier version of herself following this procedure. I take care to avoid creating a lack of harmony between the neck and the rest of the face, eyes or general appearance.” -Dr. Cooper

What Is a Neck Lift?

Neck skin usually ages more rapidly than the rest of the face, so many patients who are considering cosmetic plastic surgery may benefit from a neck lift alone. Years ago, you needed to undergo a comprehensive facelift to improve the appearance of your neck. Advances in plastic surgery techniques allow patients who are reluctant to undergo a facelift to still improve the appearance of their necks.

Why Patients Consider a Neck Lift Surgery?

Good candidates for a neck lift are usually bothered by:

  • Loose neck skin and jowls
  • Prominent vertical muscle banding
  • Excess fat under the chin
  • Jowls caused by saggy skin
  • Deep horizontal lines

Customizing Your Neck Lift Procedure

Dr. Jason Cooper carefully considers several factors at your consultation to determine the best approach to improve your neck’s appearance and meet your cosmetic goals. He measures your neck’s length and diameter, evaluates the extent of sun damage to the skin and its elasticity, and notes the amount of muscle banding, fatty deposits, and excess skin. Based on these assessments, Dr. Jason Cooper recommends the extent of the neck lift needed. A neck lift may involve one or more of these procedures:

  • Skin tightening
  • Platysmaplasty to tighten neck muscles
  • Excess skin removal
  • Neck liposuction
  • Direct fat excision through small incision

Some patients combine a neck lift with non-surgical cosmetic procedures, such as injections of fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic, for a more complete rejuvenation.

What to Expect After Neck Lift Surgery

A neck lift performed by a plastic surgeon with Dr. Jason Cooper’s expertise and experience results in overall harmony between the face and neck. Patients look noticeably younger without the appearance of having had cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Jason Cooper provides patients with detailed pre- and postoperative instructions to help prepare them for surgery. Recovery following a neck lift varies from patient to patient and also depends on the nature and extent of the procedures performed. Here are some general guidelines:

Keep your head elevated to minimize swelling and try to limit neck rotation. You will need someone at home to help with routine activities and you should spend most of the first day in a semi-reclined position. Dr. Cooper recommends some walking to boost circulation and enhance the healing process.

Although not as extensive as a facelift, a neck lift still requires you to take at least a week off from work. Continue using prescription pain relief medication to minimize any discomfort you may feel. Avoid wearing shirts or blouses that need to be pulled over the head. Bruising and swelling should peak after about 2 to 3 days and then begin to diminish.

You can gradually resume exercising but avoid strenuous activities. The final results of neck lift surgery may not be noticeable for more than a month after surgery as your residual swelling subsides.
