There are several neck reshaping procedures that can be combined to help you to achieve a more youthful look in the lower part of your face and your neck. Because this is such an individual process, your Los Angeles facial plastic surgeon can help to determine which procedure or combination of procedure would be best to help you to reach your desired results.
A neck lift can involve one or more procedures that are designed to rejuvenate the appearance of your neck. A cervicoplasty is surgery that is done to remove excess skin on the neck. If you have loose, sagging skin that gives you a crepey appearance or the dreaded “turkey neck”, you may be a good candidate for cervicoplasty.
A platysmaplasty is surgery that tightens loose or sagging muscles in the neck. If you have vertical lines or horizontal bands around the neck, you may need to have slack muscles tightened. This can be combined with a cervicoplasty for a more contoured look to the neck. Liposuction may also be added to remove excess fat.
When the jowls are affected, you may also want to have a lower face lift for an additional younger look.
