Neck lift – surgical procedure
A neck lift is the solution for the rejuvenation of the neck by overcoming the sagging of the skin and muscles that cause the tissue sag. This sagging results in an aged appearance or when there is excess fat in the neck it is also known as the ‘double chin’.
The surgical procedure consists of repositioning the platysma and the digastric muscles; in the excision of excess skin and fat; in the readjustment of the skin; and in the reduction of the submaxillary glands.
According to the quality of the skin and the level of aging, it is possible to perform the surgery with just a small incision under the chin. In case of severe flaccidity, a scar around the ear may be necessary.
