A neck lift is a family of treatments that addresses problems with fat, muscle and skin on your neck and jawline. It helps correct excess flesh of the neck and jowls, and gives a contoured and youthful appearance.
If there is enough elasticity in the skin, you may benefit from having liposuction (removal of excess fat) alone or in combination with a platysmaplasty (tightening of the muscles of the neck), which can produce a sculpted, angular and youthful jawline. Patients with loose facial and neck skin often choose both a neck lift and facelift in addition to or instead of liposuction.
Neither facelifts or neck lifts rejuvenate the area above the brow or around your eyes. A forehead lift or brow lift achieves the best results for the upper face.
A consultation with Dr. Branham or Dr. Chi will help you identify and define your goals for enhancing a youthful look. Call 314-996-3880 to schedule your appointment.
