WHY NECK LIFT?

Like the eyes, the neck can be a tell tale sign of aging. In a young person, the neck has a sharp transition from the chin to the neck. With aging, however, loosening of the skin and underlying muscle blurs this clear transition. The term “turkey neck” describes such image. Multiple vertical bands under the skin also appear and give the person an aged appearance. A neck lift can be performed to help decrease this aging appearance. Occasionally a neck lift or liposuction is needed in young people with “double chin” appearance because of the accumulation of fat under the chin.

HOW IS IT DONE?

Depending on the appearance of the neck, customized neck lift technique is applied. In younger patient with good skin, often liposuction is the only modality needed to restore a good contour. Based on individual’s profile, chin augmentation can be added for the best result and contour. In older patients, often a neck lift can be combined with a facelift to provide a total rejuvenation of the face/neck, and rid of the annoying vertical bands and excess skin.

PATIENTS’ REVIEWS

V, 57, Office worker, Caucasian, New Jersey, USA

“I recently had a face, brow and neck lift with Dr. Lao and he did a fantastic job. My friends all think I look great. I have also recently received compliments on my appearance from people I see only on an occasional basis. I think they know something is different about my appearance but can’t seem to figure out what it is. I think this fact attests to the “natural” look Dr. Lao achieved.”
