Neck Lifts are extremely popular among people of all ages, they are a great way to get rid of excess neck skin or fat, and trim down that wrinkled sagging. The effect of their outcome is quite dramatic, as they can easily take ten to fifteen years off your face and skin. Some younger clients seek neck lift procedures to tighten the loose neck muscles that they were born with, while older crowds want to rejuvenate the appearance of their skin’s elasticity. There are various procedures, approaches and combinations that are available on the market today;

- Cervicoplasty: This procedure removes the excess skin that’s giving your neck that sagging appearance, it tightens aging skin to eliminate visible wrinkles. This is done through incisions under the chin and behind the ears, then the skin is lifted and secured with permanent structures of a special type of permanent adhesive glue.

- Liposuction: By removing excess fat from right underneath the jaw line, liposuction helps define the jaw line, giving you a smooth contoured appearance.

- Platsymaplasty: In focusing and targeting the neck muscles, this procedure helps reduce the neck’s banded appearance.
