Introduction to Neck Lift

A Neck Lift, also known as lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO to address signs of aging or sagging skin in the neck area. This procedure aims to rejuvenate the neck’s appearance by tightening loose skin, correcting muscle laxity, and improving neck contours for a more youthful and defined profile.

What is a Neck Lift?

A Neck Lift is a surgical procedure that targets excess skin, fat, or muscle banding in the neck region. It involves the removal of excess skin, tightening of underlying muscles (platysmaplasty), and liposuction, if needed, to improve neck contours and address sagging or wrinkled skin. Neck Lifts can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles, eliminate the “turkey neck” effect, and provide a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance to the neck area.

How Does a Neck Lift Work?

During a Neck Lift at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery, incisions are strategically placed, typically behind the ears and possibly under the chin. Through these incisions, Dr. Samir Hasan tightens underlying muscles, removes or redistributes excess fat, and trims away surplus skin. This process helps to recontour the neck, resulting in a smoother, firmer, and more defined neck and jawline.

  • Cervicoplasty: Tightens and repositions the skin to eliminate sagging and create a smoother neck appearance.
  • Platysmaplasty: Tightens neck muscles, addressing platysmal bands or “turkey neck” for a firmer and more defined neck contour.
  • Liposuction: Removes excess fat, enhancing neck definition and reducing the appearance of a double chin or jowls.
