A common concern of patients seeking facial rejuvenation is neck aging. There are many factors which contribute to neck aging including excess fat, excess skin, and prominence of the muscle of the neck, the platysma. Complete neck rejuvenation first starts with identification of the problem area and concludes with a complete plan for rejuvenation. In some cases, multiple procedures must be undertaken for optimal results.
Patients often have questions about neck lift surgery. The most common misconception is that one procedure fits every patient. This is not the case. Depending on exactly the problem a patient suffers, a person’s medical conditions, and personal/genetic factors, surgery must be tailored to each patient.
A combination of procedures can be undertaken to optimally perform neck lift surgery. Sometimes a combination of liposuction, plastysmaplasty, and lower facelift are necessary to obtain optimal neck lift results. Unfortunately, newer is not necessarily better. Some procedures which are touted to be minimally invasive in neck rejuvenation can be good for patients with the appropriate skin and aging changes while some patients with more extensive aging may not see good results.
For patients with excess skin of the neck, either alone or after liposuction procedures, a lower facelift may be in order to pull the neck tight and remove the excess skin. Incisions are made around the ears and an incision is made under the chin. The skin is lifted from the deeper structures, pulled tight, and excess skin in removed.
Facial plastic surgeons and plastic surgeons can consult with patients to help them determine which procedures are right and what their particular risks are. A proper treatment plan and expectations are crucial to ensuring the best results possible.
