Neck Lift Surgery
The elegance of a neck contour in a Female and strong jaw line in a Male cannot be underestimated. For centuries sculpters and painters have depicted beauty with these features. The first signs of ageing in some people distort this contour. A Neck Lift is the solution for a “turkey neck” or neck with loose skin, wrinkles and platysma bands that cause the neck to lose shape. At Artiste Plastic Surgery patients have sought a Neck Lift to restore the elegant transition from Face to Neck. This results in a sharp neck line with better contour and will give you confidence from every angle.
Technically A Neck Lift is a plastic surgery procedure that may be performed alone but is often part of a Facelift procedure with an additional small incision under the chin. The neck muscles, glands and fat are repositioned through this access incision to produce a harmonious pleasing neck contour.
At Artiste Plastic Surgery a neck lift is performed for the following reasons:
- As part of a facelift procedure
- To rejuvenate the neck
- To form a youthful cervico-mental angle (Chin and Neck relationship)
- To address active Platysma bands
- To create a more pleasing aesthetic appearance of the neck
NECK LIFT SURGERY PROCEDURES:
Neck Lift Alone
In few cases a patient may seek only a neck lift to address:
- Cervical skin laxity
- Fat deposits in the neck region
This can be achieved with liposuction alone with the addition of a sub-mental and/or short post-auricular incision to address excess cervical laxity.
Neck Lift as Part of a Facelift
A sub-mental incision (in addition to the facelift incision) is used to access the neck structures. The following can be performed depending on anatomy and age changes:
- Removal of fat (Supra-platysma, Sub-platysma)
- Trimming of Digastric muscles
- Trimming of Submandibular gland
- Platsymaplasty (suturing of muscle together)
- Platsyma-myotomy (incising of the muscle to rid of active bands)
- Removal of excess skin through the facelift incision
