A neck lift, also known as a platysmaplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excessive skin and fat from the neck to address age-related wrinkling and creasing in the area. A neck lift is often done in conjunction with a facelift to achieve a more uniform rejuvenation of the head and neck.
A neck lift can help improve the visual signs of aging in the jaw and neck, including:
• Loose, sagging skin, which may lead to the development of jowls
• Excessive fatty deposits in the lower face and neck
Dr. Lorenc’s surgical objective during a neck lift is to subtly improve and refresh the skin on the neck to provide a smoother, slimmer profile.
Who is an ideal candidate?
A neck lift may be right for you if you have loose skin or deep wrinkles in the neck that you wish to correct. A neck lift can be performed with or without additional rejuvenation procedures, depending on your needs and goals.
Other considerations that should be weighed when determining if a neck lift is right for you include:
• Your health: No underlying health conditions that may make healing more difficult
• Your expectations: Individuals should approach a neck lift with positive and realistic expectations
