What is a Neck Lift?
Many patients seeking facial rejuvenation note increased laxity and fullness around the jawline and under their chin making them look much older than they feel. The neck skin tends to be thinner and less elastic than facial skin and often gets less attention in skin care and sun protection which can accelerate the aging process. A neck lift procedures aims to rejuvenate the jawline and neck regions by removing excessive fat deposits, tightening underlying muscular structures, and carefully contouring the lax skin. Although a comprehensive neck lift can be similar to a facelift, the neck line can be improved with less invasive procedures, such as liposuction. Often this procedure is combined with other aesthetic procedures such as blepharoplasty, mid-face augmentation, or facelift for a balanced rejuvenation of the face.

How is a Neck Lift Performed?
A neck lift will address several issues including the removal of excess fat, the trimming of hanging skin and the tightening of loose skin around the underlying neck muscles. Liposuction of the chin and neck areas is performed first to smooth and contour the area. Small incisions under the chin and around the ear are used to tighten the muscles of the neck and remove the excess skin and soft tissue that cause wrinkling and sagginess. The incisions are placed in natural lines and are difficult to detect once healed.
