When performed correctly, neck lift has a tremendously positive impact. The neck, chin and jawline are often the first areas of the face to show signs of aging and gravity. An experienced neck lift surgeon, like Dr. Dennis Bucko or Farid Brad Mozaffari of Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Center, can restore youthful contours to the lower region of the face for an overall rejuvenating effect.

More About the Neck Lift Procedure with Belladerma
Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari evaluate neck lift candidates on an individual basis to ascertain their needs and determine whether the procedure is a suitable option. They explain the procedure in greater detail, including what it typically accomplishes. Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari provide all the information a patient needs to make important decisions about their care.
Generally, neck lift is a suitable option for individuals that are bothered by:
loose, saggy neck skin
relaxation of excess fat and skin in the lower face that creates jowls
vertical lines or muscle banding on the neck
excess fatty deposits underneath the chin that give the appearance of a “double chin”
wrinkled neck skin
Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari perform a physical examination of the problematic areas, inquiries about the patient’s specific cosmetic goals, and uses that information to develop a plan of treatment.
If the neck has aged more quickly than the face, a standalone neck lift procedure is a great option. If the neck, lower face and mid face regions collectively need to be improved, neck lift techniques can be folded into a standard facelift operation.
The procedural steps of a standard neck lift procedure vary, according to the patient’s specific needs. Typically, sagging fat is redistributed from the jowls back up to the cheek area to create a more attractive contour along the jawline. Excess skin is removed from the neck and the remaining skin is re-draped more tightly. The platysma muscles may be released, repositioned, and tightened to eliminate vertical muscle cords or banding. Any excess fat on the neck can beliposuctioned away. The surgery is performed through an incision around the ear, and possibly an additional incision underneath the chin.
If you are embarrassed by a double chin, loose neck skin or other problems in the lower region of the face, neck lift might help. Drs.
