As you begin to age, your neck muscles become weak and develop unwanted fat deposits which can make your neck appear larger as skin begins to sag. A neck lift is a procedure to eliminate the sagging skin from your neck and tighten the skin that remains, resulting in a more elegant profile and youthful appearance.
An incision is made under the chin and/or behind the ears. Skin is tightened while excess skin is removed. The incisions are sutured to hold the tissue in place.
Only a skilled plastic surgeon can determine the neck lift procedure and technique that best match your skin type, ethnic background, skin elasticity and bone structure. The goal is to restore the neck contour and remove excess skin at the neck and under the chin. At The Plastic Surgery Group, our plastic surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and have years of experience in neck lift procedures. Setting realistic expectations from your neck lift surgery and discussing those options with your surgeon will help maximize your result.
