Lower rhytidectomy, or neck lift surgery, reverses the signs of aging in the neck, lower jaw and under the chin. Excess skin and fat is removed and skin is “tightened”. A neck lift can also either remove or tighten muscle banding in the neck to smooth contours.
The results are a smoother younger looking neck with less sagging skin and creases. It can also remove the double chin or turkey neck effect and heavy jowls and lines. This procedure does not affect the face area but rather the area below, it is often combined with a deep plane facelift. Aging will continue but the appearance of your neck will be significantly improved.
