A graceful neck portrays a sense of refinement that enhances the overall appearance. A necklift alone, without a facelift, can dramatically improve one’s appearance, making you look years younger and pounds lighter.
This procedure can be referred to as a Cervicoplasty or Platysmaplasty. A Cervicoplasty removes excess skin and a Platysmaplasty tightens loose neck muscles.
A small incision is made behind each ear and a third incision under the chin. Through these incisions the surgen will tighten, remove excess sagging skin to restore a smoother, firmer neck.
This is an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia or IV sedation with local anesthesia. Typically you can return to work and normal activity 2 weeks after surgery. Brusing and swelling are normal and subside gradually. A “tight” feeling may remain for up to several months.
Neck contouring can achieve dramatic improvement to your neck and lower face.
