Normal age-related changes, genetics, lifestyle, weight loss/weight gain – and the downward pull of gravity all contribute to unwelcome signs of facial and neck aging. A Necklift, also called Platysmaplasty, is one of today’s most popular procedures to correct and rejuvenate the neck. Dr. Yeh tailors your Necklift procedure to your individual needs.
As we age, neck muscles relax resulting in sagging neck skin often referred to as “Turkey Waddle.” Excess skin, muscle and pooched-out fat – under the chin – results in a “double chin.” Often a genetic factor, fat under the chin is usually unaffected by diet and exercise. Dr. Yeh combines Liposuction with a Necklift to achieve dramatic results.
One of the most defining characteristics of a youthful face – is the neckline. Loose – hanging neck skin, excess fat & jowls – dramatically emphasize an aging face.
WHAT IS NECKLIFT SURGERY?
Platysmaplasty or Necklift Surgery eliminates the excess fat and sagging skin of the neck. A Necklift corrects only the problems of the neck and does not deal with lines, wrinkles, grooves and sagging skin of the face. Necklift is a safe, commonly performed procedure using today’s most advanced techniques and smaller, refined instruments.
