The Egyptian queen Nefertiti is universally recognized as an icon of beauty, due in part to her elegant and graceful neck. Unfortunately, the neck area is prone to sagging and it is one of the first areas to give away our age. At Miami Skin and Vein, we offer the nonsurgical Nefertiti Lift procedure to restore a youthful and contoured appearance to the jawline and neck.
At the heart of our clinic is Dr. Shaun Patel. He is an experienced physician whose goal is to provide world-class facial aesthetic and cosmetic dermatology services. As a leader in injectable treatments and nonsurgical facial aesthetics and skin rejuvenation, he can help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Benefits of the Nefertiti Lift
As we age, our necks begin to have a saggy appearance. Our bodies slow their production of the natural skin tightening and smoothing components such as collagen and elastin, leading to sagging skin. The muscles under the jaw continuously pull this skin down, eventually leading to drooping and a loss of jawline definition. A Nefertiti Lift can:
- Improve the appearance of a saggy jowl
- Provide definition
- Improve the appearance of prominent neck bands
- Tighten excess skin
Am I a Candidate?
You are likely a great candidate if you are looking for a minimally invasive procedure that can restore a youthful appearance to the chin and throat area.
Ideal candidates for the Nefertiti Lift are:
- At least 18 years old
- Not pregnant or nursing at the time of treatment
- Free of any known allergies to BOTOX
- At or near a stable and healthy weight
During your consultation Dr. Patel will listen to your goals and concerns as well as discuss your medical history to further establish that you are a good candidate.
Nefertiti Lift Procedure
The Nefertiti Lift is a nonsurgical procedure utilizing injectables. First, BOTOX injections are used near the jaw and neck to relax the area. This causes the muscles that constantly pull the face downwards to take a break. When they are no longer pulling your features down, the muscles on the upper face can properly lift the skin. This alone can provide a rejuvenated look.
Dermal fillers may then be used to increase volume beneath the skin to further sculpt the area. The end result is a lifted and defined appearance that the Egyptian queen herself would envy.
The entire process takes only a few minutes. There is no downtime and you can expect to carry on with your day as usual. You will notice a refreshed a tightened appearance within days.
Maintaining Your Lift Results
Dr. Patel may give you some simple instructions to ensure the effectiveness of the injections. These may include not touching or rubbing your chin and neck, not preforming any strenuous activities, and not laying down for several hours after the procedure.
The results last differently from person to person, and Dr. Patel may be able to give you a personalized estimate of what to expect. Follow up injections at Miami Skin and Vein can allow you to maintain an uplifted appearance. Dr. Patel can work with you and your goals to establish an ongoing treatment plan.
