Neck lift

The neck is one of the first areas that shows the first signs of aging and often, because of visibility, causes patient's dissatisfaction. Changes in the neck usually involve a combination of fat, folds of excess skin and muscle relaxation (platysmas). Surgical intervention requires careful preoperative analysis of each of these components and, depending on the findings, appropriate surgical procedure.

About the procedure

Muscle relaxation platysmas at the front of the neck leads to the formation of unsightly wrinkles that are placed vertically with extra sagging skin. Operations can be performed under local or general anesthesia and consist of mobilizing the relaxed muscle platysmas and removing excess skin and tightening and connecting edges behind the ear and in the front line in the invisible zone under the chin, depending on the extent of the procedure. In addition, it is possible to remove the fat from a double chin.

Am I a candidate?
