Also known as platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty
The neck is one of the first places where we show our age. Fatty jowls, a “turkey wattle,” vertical banding and horizontal creases all work together to make us look older than we feel. A neck lift enhances the appearance of the neck by tightening the skin and underlying muscles and improving the contour of the jawline. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with liposuction, a facelift, or a cheek lift but may also be done as a stand-alone procedure.
When to consider a Neck Lift
- If you have a turkey wattle that makes you look much older than your age
- If you feel your neck is too fat
- If you have lost the distinct jawline of your youth and want to restore it
- If you have excess skin and wrinkles on your neck
Many people who consider a neck lift also consider a facelift, brow lift or chin augmentation.
