A neck lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure that, as the name suggests, focuses on the area under the chin and above the chest.
Also known as a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift can help to correct sagging skin, the appearance of multiple chins, or unwanted wrinkles and banding in the neck. Like most facial and cosmetic surgery procedures, the goal is to help enhance your overall appearance and reduce or eliminate signs of aging. Patients who undergo a neck lift can see an improvement in their overall facial contour and profile.
A neck lift involves making strategically placed incisions along the natural folds of your skin and within the hairline. Where the incisions are made will be based on the extent of treatment required and each patients’ overall aesthetic goals.
At Troiano Facial Plastics, our mission is to always deliver the best neck lift West Palm Beach has to offer. Depending on what your surgical plan is, Dr. Troiano will use precise techniques to trim away or reshape and reposition the skin and underlying tissue. She repositions the underlying tissue to a more youthful position and then carefully redrapes the skin and thereby prevents the “windswept” appearance.
These treatments, however, are generally not permanent and must be received regularly to see the results over time. A surgical neck lift will deliver much more dramatic results and is intended to be permanent. The best way to determine which procedure is right for you is a consultation with Palm Beach facial plastic surgeon Dr. Chelsea Troiano where she can do a physical examination and you can discuss your options.
The cost of a neck lift will be comprised of different factors, including the surgical costs for Dr. Troiano and her team. The extent of treatment required, as well as any additional treatments or techniques you might want to incorporate to help deliver a more customized result, will also affect the final cost of your Palm Beach neck lift surgery.
Dr. Troiano regards each patient’s aesthetic development as completely unique. During your consultation with Dr. Troiano, you will be able to plan out a specific program to achieve your beauty goals. This program will delineate the cost of a neck lift and any other procedures you decide to include in your treatment.

Plastic surgery is intended to deliver permanent results by trimming away excess skin and removing unwanted fat, tissue, and more from the area. It does not stop the clock, unfortunately, and patients may see shifts in their appearance as they continue to age, change in weight, and be exposed to harmful elements like UV rays and harsh weather. In general, her deep plane technique delivers a durable improvement in the neck for at least 10 years.
The dreaded turkey neck appearance, or hanging from the jowls beneath the chin, can cause patients to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in certain clothes or situations. A neck lift can help to eliminate or reduce the appearance of a turkey neck and restore the more youthful neck and jaw contours.
Dr. Troiano performs deep plane neck lift procedures under general anesthesia using careful techniques and precision to deliver high-quality treatments where patients feel no pain. Following their surgery, patients may experience some discomfort or swelling in the area, but this is managed with ice packs and medication.
There are always risks to consider when thinking about elective surgery procedures like cosmetic enhancements. Finding a qualified plastic surgeon, preferably who specializes in face and neck surgery and facial enhancement procedures, can help to reduce your risk of any complications during and after surgery.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Troiano, you can discuss any questions or concerns you have about the neck lift, and the associated risks you should be aware of before making a decision.
Ideal candidates for a neck lift procedure are adults in good general health, who want to correct the appearance of loose skin, banding or wrinkles in the neck. Patients should be non-smokers who are medically cleared for surgery and understand the recovery period and any potential risks of treatment.
