What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that aims to improve visible signs of aging in the neck and jawline. It addresses issues such as excess fat, loose skin, and muscle banding in the neck area. The procedure often involves removing excess skin, tightening underlying muscles, and sometimes liposuction to remove excess fat. This results in a more defined jawline, a smoother neck contour, and an overall rejuvenated appearance. Neck lifts are commonly sought by individuals who have sagging and aging in the neck area but maintain a relatively youthful face.

He will examine your unique neck and facial features, discuss your aesthetic goals, and offer expert advice on whether a neck lift or other treatment options would be more beneficial for you.

What does a Neck Lift address?

A neck lift is designed to rejuvenate the neck and jawline area by addressing various aging signs. It effectively targets excess fat and skin in the neck, often seen as a “turkey neck,” and tackles loose, sagging skin that can lead to the formation of jowls. Additionally, it addresses muscle banding in the neck, which can create unflattering contours, and improves the definition in the jawline. The procedure overall aims to restore a smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearance to the neck area.
