Neck Lift

Rejuvenation of the neck is a critical part of a full Facelift. One of the largest benefits of the Facelift is improvement in neck appearance. There are some incidences where isolated rejuvenation of the neck can be performed without the need of a full facelift. This is generally for younger patients or patients without other advanced signs of facial aging. When only lifting of the neck need be addressed, this is known as Neck Lift surgery. Sometimes liposuction can help a thick heavy neck but frequently a combination of fat removal and skin tightening is necessary. These procedures usually involve some degree of approach to the anterior neck through an incision under the chin, but skin removal is frequently performed by removing skin through an incision present behind the ear and into the hairline. Neck Lifts alone are much less common then neck lifts performed during a Facelift surgery.
