The neck lift is a family of treatments that can address problems with the fat, muscle and skin of your neck and jaw line.
Is your neck overly full and out of proportion with your face? Have you lost weight only to find sagging skin in your neck?
A neck lift can help correct a fleshy neck, jowls, plastysma or neck banding, and what is commonly referred to turkey waddle.
If there is enough elasticity in the skin you may benefit from having liposuction alone or in combination with a platysmaplasty (tightening of the muscles of the neck), which can produce a more sculpted, angular and youthful jaw line.
However, patients with loose facial and neck skin usually require a face and neck lift in addition to or instead of liposuction.
Keep in mind that a facelift or neck lift procedure is not designed to rejuvenate the area above the brow or around your eyes. If this is what you seek then a forehead or brow lift may benefit you.
These four procedures can be performed in conjunction with one another for a complete transformation while retaining a natural look.
