A neck lift is one of the types of facelifts offered by board-certified Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña. However, whereas a full facelift involves your entire face, a neck lift is a less invasive procedure that only involves your neck and jawline. Dr. Peña can perform a neck lift alone or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures to help you achieve a younger, firmer, more attractive appearance.
The “Suture Necklift”, a more limited procedure which is performed thru tiny incisions in the chin and behind the ears can be appropriate for younger patients that have always had a poorly defined Jawline.
Neck Lift Candidates
Good candidates for neck lift surgery should:
• Be in generally good health
• Have excess, sagging skin around the neck and bottom portion of the jaw
• Have good skin elasticity
• Have realistic expectations
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your neck, Dr. Peña can assess its appearance and the quality of your skin and help you determine if this procedure is ideal for meeting your needs.
If you have several areas of concern throughout your face, Dr. Peña may recommend a full facelift or a neck lift combined with nonsurgical options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic to help you achieve the look of your dreams.
