If you want to get rid of wrinkles and other signs of aging, a neck lift may be just what you need. This plastic surgery procedure strips years off of the face and defines the jawline, removing wrinkles, bands, a double chin, jowls, and other excess skin.

The neck lift procedure varies slightly depending on the issues being addressed. It can involve any combination of a platysmaplasty (to correct neck bands), a cervicoplasty (to trim away loose skin), and neck liposuction (to excise fatty tissue). One or more cuts are made below the patient’s chin or behind their ears, giving the surgeon access to the tissues. The surgeon then recontours the neck area, removing and altering tissue to create the ideal neck. Afterwards, the incisions are closed using surgical sutures.
