The Neck Lift

Aging of the neck results in skin laxity, fat accumulation and prominent muscle banding. Typically, women present with this earlier than men because their skin is thinner and they have a lower blood supply in this region. Dr. Romo manages this problem with a surgical neck lift. During the procedure, he utilizes liposuction to eliminate excessive fat, platysmaplasty to tighten the neck bands, and then he removes the loose skin. This results in a defined and youthful jawline. Often, a patient seeking greater chin and jawline definition will benefit from the use of chin and gonial angle implants. Like an endoscopic procedure, the incisions for a neck lift are small and hidden behind the ear. Because the lower face and neck age at the same rate, Dr. Romo will often perform a lower facelift in combination with a neck lift to achieve a more balanced result.
