The delicate skin of the neck is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging.

Dr. Robert M. Freund has extensive experience performing necklift surgery, and can employ a range of advanced techniques to ensure that your results are long-lasting and look natural. Dr. Freund is an innovator in plastic surgery who can restore the definition of your facial features and help you feel more confident in your appearance.

The Manhattan Neck Lift Procedure
Depending on your needs, neck lift surgery can involve several different techniques. Dr. Freund can remove excess fat with liposuction, trim excess skin, tighten remaining skin, and alter the appearance of the underlying muscle, called the platysma.
A platysmaplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure that allows Dr. Freund to access to the neck muscle using a small incision underneath the chin. This technique does not include the removal of fat, and is a good choice for patients who are only concerned with a “turkey wattle.” These are typically younger patients who still have ample skin elasticity. This simple procedure allows patients to heal quickly with minimal swelling and scarring.
A local platysmaplasty is a slightly more invasive procedure, which uses a small zig-zag incision running from the chin to the Adam’s apple to remove extra skin and fat. This technique allows Dr. Freund to tighten weakened muscle tissue. Although swelling is minimal and recovery is typically quick, this type of neck lift is often preferred by men who can conceal the scar behind a beard.
A full necklift, or corset platysmaplasty, repairs muscles in three layers and removes excess skin using incisions behind the ears. Remaining skin tissue is tightened. As part of a full neck lift, a tiny incision is made under the chin, allowing Dr. Freund to effectively hide any scarring that might be present after the procedure. This surgery can produce a sharp, defined neck line and offers particularly long-lasting results.
Neck Lift Candidacy and Considerations
If you are concerned with sagging skin on your neck, noticeable fat deposits, or visible bands in the neck muscles, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift. During your consultation, Dr. Freund will discuss your concerns with you, and determine which customized procedure can meet your needs. Laxity in the jowls, for example, may be better addressed using a type of facelift. Neck lift can easily be combined with additional procedures, such as a brow lift or blepharoplasty, so you can achieve a dramatic overall aesthetic enhancement in just one visit.
