What Is The Signature Profile Neck Lift™?

If you’ve recently seen a profile photograph of yourself and realized you’re unhappy with your neckline, you’re absolutely not alone. The Signature Profile Neck Lift is a unique procedure that addresses the laxity that forms on the neckline over time. By tightening the muscles and removing excess skin, this procedure creates a more youthful, contoured profile appearance. To learn more about how this procedure can help you enjoy a rejuvenated look, reach out to our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL offices and set up your consultation today.

A Minimally Invasive Neck Lift

Our Signature Profile Neck Lift™ is a minimally invasive alternative to the traditional neck lift. Designed by our founder and medical director, Facial Plastic Surgeon Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, this procedure addresses a number of the most common signs of aging, such as sagging skin beneath the chin (sometimes known as a “turkey neck”), loss of volume, and visible muscle banding in the neck, chin, and jawline.

Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure?

The Signature Profile Neck Lift™ is an ideal solution for anyone who has significant laxity in the neck and chin, as well as muscle banding, unwanted fat deposits, and excess sagging skin. If you’re interested in a facelift without the required downtime or have too much excess tissue in the neck to enjoy the benefits of the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™, the Signature Profile Neck Lift may also be right for you.

The Primary Benefits of Our Signature Profile Neck Lift™

The greatest benefit that comes with our Signature Profile Neck Lift™ is a significant improvement in the contour of the neck and chin due to a tightening of the lax muscles that often form bands on the neckline. This procedure can also be safely and comfortably performed in the office under local anesthesia, only requiring a very small incision that is well hidden and fades over time.

Here are just a few of the reasons that our patients especially love the Signature Profile Neck Lift™:

  • It addresses common issues like turkey neck and muscle banding
  • The procedure is minimally invasive
  • You’ll experience a speedy recovery process
  • There will be no visible incision lines

Your Signature Profile Neck Lift™ Procedure

The Signature Profile Neck Lift is performed in our office under local anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Clevens or Dr. Barbee will create and conceal a zigzag incision along your neckline. The incision will be customized according to your unique anatomy, so it will be well camouflaged and difficult to see after the healing process is complete. 

Your surgeon will then contour and remove the unwanted fat deposits from the area. Skin laxity and fat will be addressed, loose neck muscles will be tightened to reduce banding, and excess skin will be removed. Finally, dissolvable sutures will be used to carefully close the incision.

Recovery After the Signature Profile Neck Lift™

After the Signature Profile Neck Lift™, many patients experience a simple recovery process with minimal bruising and discomfort. Immediately following your surgery, a bandage will be put in place, to be removed after two or three days. We find that most of our patients experience very little discomfort after the Signature Profile Neck Lift™ and are able to return to work or their ordinary day-to-day activities quite rapidly. 

It will be important to restrict normal activities and to avoid heavy lifting and straining to facilitate a smooth recovery. Most people are able to resume normal day-to-day activities within five to seven days. To speed up your recovery, we recommend you sleep with your head elevated with at least two pillows for the first week after surgery.

I was told I would look ten to 12 years younger and I do. It's very natural looking and I couldn't be happier. The staff here is very pleasant and helpful. Anytime I called with a question or concern I was always called back in a timely manner. I am extremely particular and I highly recommend Dr. Clevens and his staff.

How do I ensure a successful surgery?

How long will my results last?

Our patients particularly love this procedure thanks to its long-lasting results. Our Signature Profile Neck Lift™ creates results that last for many years, with some patients still enjoying the benefits 15 to 20 years after their procedure.

How is the Signature Profile Neck Lift™ different from the Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift™?

TThe Laser-Assisted Weekend Neck Lift defines the jawline, neck, and chin, whereas the Signature Profile Neck Lift is designed for patients who have more excess tissue in the neckline. That’s why the Signature Profile Neck Lift is ideal for any patient who has a lot of heaviness and laxity in the neck and chin area.

How do I ensure a successful surgery?

A successful surgery begins with choosing the right surgeon for you. As you prepare for your consultation with your doctor, be ready to ask about your surgeon’s credentials, what to expect from your procedure, and how you’ll be supported during your recovery.
