A neck lift can remove or improve the loose skin of the neck, the jaw line, the deeper wrinkle lines, and the corners of the mouth. A neck lift can be done without doing a traditional facelift, where we tighten the muscle in the midline of the neck during a procedure called Platysmaplasty, or submental-plasty.
Depending on the degree of change you’d like to see, your neck lift choices include a traditional neck lift incision or a limited incision neck lift.
A traditional neck lift incision often begins in the hairline at the level of the sideburn, continues down and around the ear and ends in the posterior hair. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the jowls and neck. The tissue underlying the neck skin is repositioned, and commonly the platysma muscle is tightened. Skin is redraped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away. A separate incision under the chin is often necessary for liposuction of this area and for repair of the muscle. Sutures or skin adhesives close the incisions.
