One of the most common concerns that patients describe as they age is loosening and sagging of the skin in the neck, sometimes referred to as a “turkey neck.” Some patients have concerns localized to the neck area that do not need a full facelift, and in these patients a neck lift is an excellent option to provide beautiful, natural rejuvenation of the neck and jawline.
Depending on the specific concerns, a neck lift procedure is typically performed through a small incision under the chin, and may sometimes include incisions behind the ear or in the hairline as well. The muscles in the neck may need to be repositioned to tighten the skin further, and liposuction in the neck is often performed at the same time to remove any excess fat under the chin. In some patients, a simple excision of excess skin from directly under the chin may be all that is needed to provide the desired result. Dr. Cain and Dr. Richardson are both experts in analyzing the underlying causes of aging changes in the neck and can help you decide which procedure is most suited for your particular concerns during your consultation.
