Your Facial Rejuvenation
As the years pass, the neck skin loosens, muscle bands form, and fat pockets accumulate under the chin resulting in a sagging neckline. As one ages even further, the jowls of the lower face flow into the neck resulting in no definition between the jaw line and neckline. Both men and women visit Dr. Mandal in Palm Beach for neck lift surgery to remove excess skin and fat, and also tighten sagging muscle.
Since everyone ages differently, Dr. Mandal customizes the neck lift procedure to you. A mini neck lift is an excellent choice if you have mild to moderate sagging. Patients usually require a full or standard neck lift when a significant amount of skin has to be removed. Neck lifts can also be performed in combination with a face lift , chin implants , or liposuction and platysmaplasty for a more complete facial rejuvenation. You are encouraged to meet with Dr. Mandal to review your options, discuss realistic expectations, and preview your new look with our computerized imaging process.
Neck Lift Surgery
A standard neck lift is an outpatient procedure that Dr. Mandal performs in 1 to 2 hours while the patient is under “twilight” anesthesia. Generally, she removes excess fat and tightens muscle through a small incision made just under the chin. She conceals incisions behind the ears and hairline to remove sagging skin when necessary.

Recovery & Results
You will return home after surgery with a dressing over the surgical areas that will be removed the next day. Sutures are taken out at 7 to 10 days, depending on the type of lift you had performed. At this point, you may cover any minimal bruising or swelling with makeup and resume most routine activities. The incisions are not readily noticeable once fully healed, enabling you to wear your hair short or back.
After a neck lift, Dr. Mandal’s patients can appreciate the more youthful contours with a more defined jaw and neckline, but without a “pulled” or “windblown” look. The changes may be subtle, yet impressive and above, natural and youthful looking. Dr. Mandal’s eye for detail and compassionate care provide a rewarding experience which leaves you feeling as wonderful as you look.

Dr. Mandal understands that your facial enhancement should be as unique as you are. To discover your options, request a facial consultation online or call 561.238.0040. During the consultation, Dr. Mandal strives to educate you on your options, rather than simply convince you to have surgery. Patients visit her from throughout Palm Beach County, across Florida, and from a range of national and international locations.
