This procedure involves incisions around the ears and under the chin. The skin is lifted from the underlying fat at which point the fat is sculpted into a more youthful shape. The deep "muscle" layers are then released and elevated in an upward direction. The neck muscle is tightened (plastysmaplasty). Finally, excess skin is removed in a more backward direction maintaining normal hairline position as well as keeping neck skin on the neck (as opposed to moving it up onto the face where it doesn't look right).
