Neck Lift Surgery

The neck skin and tissue are some of the most susceptible areas when it comes to visible aging. While many people protect their facial skin with sunscreen, creams and ongoing skincare, the neck is often forgotten. Sun-damage and aging can affect the neck, causing loose skin and sagging that impacts the overall appearance of the individual. Neck lift surgery can help smooth the neck skin and tissue to a more youthful appearance and help with defining the chin and jawline. Dr. Rousso offers exceptional facial cosmetic surgery options to enhance the beauty and overall appearance for our patients.

Many factors impact the appearance of the neck as you grow older. Not only does the skin lose elasticity and the tissues can sag, the platysma muscle in the neck may begin to separate, allowing for a bulging to occur that is often referred to as a “turkey gobble.” Many people can gain a double-chin as they grow older, with wrinkling and sagging skin on the neck. A neck lift uses several surgical techniques to address these various issues, helping keep the neck looking years younger and improving the profile of the chin and face.

What is a Neck Lift?

A neck lift procedure needs to be customized for the individual. Some people may have excess fat under the chin that needs to be removed through liposuction, as well as elevating of the skin and tissue. Excess skin may need to be removed, often combined with a facelift. There are surgical options to repair aging damage to the cords in the neck through platysmaplasty. The exact procedure depends on the patient and their desired results.

Dr. Rousso is one of the top facial plastic surgeons in New York City, offering exceptional results for all his facelift and neck lift procedures. If you want to explore options for restoring a more youthful appearance for your neck, chin and face, contact our office in Manhattan to schedule a consultation.
