The surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami can treat the manifestations of aging on the neck with a number of surgical procedures. The set of those procedures are called a neck lift, medically termed cervicoplasty. A neck lift can be performed in conjunction with a facelift or by itself.
* Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
The Neck Lift procedure
The incisions, technical steps and patient recovery of a neck lift are similar to a standard facelift. However, smaller and minimally invasive variations of neck lifts are successfully done for patients with less extensive needs. The procedures that generally comprise a neck lift include excess skin removal, alteration or tightening of neck muscles (platysmaplasty), BOTOX® Cosmetic injections and liposuction.
Why would I get a Neck Lift?
In both men and women, the neck is one of the first structures to be affected by aging. As early as your 30′s, you might notice looseness or sagging of neck skin, fatty deposits in the submental area (double chin) and even vertical muscle bands extending the length of the neck. These changes may become bothersome and downright embarrassing. Women and men who are concerned with sagging skin on the neck, but don’t want a full facelift, are excellent candidates for this procedure. In all, a neck lift could be indicated when the neck possesses too much skin, excess fat, or skin laxity underneath your chin (turkey neck). In short, a neck lift procedure is for women and men seeking complete neck rejuvenation.
What Should I Expect from a Neck Lift?
Generally results seen by PSI Miami patients have had a neck lift or reduction of wrinkling and sagging of the neck with an improvement in the appearance of their jawline. Additionally, if indicated, patients also report a reduction in fat and a tightening of the underlying muscle and connective tissue of their necks. Keep in mind, every case is unique. Discuss your desired results with your PSI plastic surgeon.
