The Neck Only Lift

 

Many patients who come to the office desiring facial rejuvenation are bothered most by the appearance of their neck.  For some, it is the only area that requires correction.  For these patients, special modifications can be made to allow for a procedure that targets only this region of the face.

Younger patients with neck bands or cords or with loose tissues of the neck are often candidates for what is essentially a no incision neck lift.  Small access sites smaller than the width of a finger are made under the chin and behind each ear, and from these areas, the muscles of the neck are tightened and repositioned to create definition and contour between the chin and the neck.  For patients with slightly more skin excess, incisions can be hidden behind the ear, with no incision being present in any visible region of the face.
