As we age, the skin on our neck begins to sag, and the muscle that holds the firm shape of a youthful neck begins to separate. With time, this results in loosing the the sharp angle between the bottom of the jaw and the beginning of the neck. A neck lift is the perfect solution to address sagging skin, excess fat and slack muscles of the neck. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a facelift, but can also be a stand alone procedure.
A small incision is made in the crease under the chin. The loose muscles of the neck are tightened to restore neck contour. The skin on the neck is tightened and excess skin is removed. This type of surgery generally performed under a general anaesthetic. It can be performed as a day procedure; however, when combined with a facelift, an overnight stay in hospital is often preferred for patient comfort and care.
