Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after necklift surgeons in Palm Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results with facial plastic surgery. Dr. Rueda’s necklifts make the patient appear younger without creating a “pulled” or “taught” unnatural look. To achieve this effect he uses a special technique that contours the internal neck tissues and muscles; the skin is then contoured on top to achieve a natural and long lasting result. Most of the patient’s undergoing necklift have them in combination with facelift surgery for a full facial rejuvenation. This is usually the case for patients who have developed droopiness of the face and neck. However, necklift alone remains a great procedure for those with skin laxity limited to their neck. Get the look you’ve always dreamed of. If you are located in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Lake Worth, Wellington, Palm Springs or any other surrounding cities, contact us today to learn more.


There are two main kinds of necklifts: traditional necklift and short incision necklift. Both of them improve neck sagginess, neck bands, and neck wrinkles. However, there are important differences to highlight as not all patients are a candidate for both:

Although short incision (short-scar) procedures are desired by most patients, the presence of significant drooping, significant neck laxity, or poor skin elasticity makes them non-ideal candidates for this procedure. In both, Dr. Rueda uses a special technique of double layer necklift. The inner superficial neck muscle (Platysma) is contoured to provide optimal shape and correction of internal droopiness. Afterwards Dr. Rueda contours the skin to the deep tissues to achieve natural results.

Natural look

One of the main patient concerns is to have an unnatural appearance that makes them look “taught” or “pulled”. Dr. Rueda uses a dual layer necklift technique to eliminate this problem. This technique corrects the neck droopiness by tightening and contouring the internal tissues; this avoids the need of skin tightness to achieve a good outcome and therefore leads to more natural results.

Customized Result

Necklift surgery sometimes requires removal or contouring of fat, muscle, or glands in the deeper neck to achieve the best results. These are customized changes that depend on every patient and only select surgeons like Dr. Rueda feel comfortable and have experience doing it.


Dr. Rueda is known for performing necklifts that last for a Iong time. His dual layer necklift technique contours both the outside skin and internal tissue to provide longer lasting results.
