Neck Lift

A neck lift is usually performed as an integral part of a facelift.

The neck can be unsatisfactory due to a deficiency of the jaw bone, an excess of skin and or fat, platsyma muscle overactivity or a combination of these. 

Neck Surgery

In certain circumstances it is possible to perform a neck lift as an isolated procedure, particularly if your problem is limited to just one of the causes.

For instance, if the problem is a fatty excess alone, then liposculpture may be all that is needed. If it is some platysmal muscle bands or submental fat excess a surgical neck lift alone may produce excellent results. However if you also have jowls developing with a sagging jaw line, then a neck lift alone may make your jowls more obvious, and Dr Breidahl may recommend a midface lift as well.

Dr Breidahl will assess you at your consultation and be able to advise you on the most appropriate treatment.

All surgery carries with it risks and complications. See here for a summary of the common risks. Risks specific to both your personal situation and the specific procedures you are seeking will be discussed in detail at your appointment with Dr Breidahl.
