Neck lift (Cervicoplasty, Platysmaplasty)

A neck lift is actually a set of procedures used to enhance the appearance of your neck:

  • Cervicoplasty is the procedure used to remove excess skin
  • Platysmaplasty removes or alters neck muscles

As we age, our neck changes. Patients commonly describe the area as a "turkey wattle" or too much skin. A droopy neckline ages a person, particularly when that person is seen in profile. Before surgery, many of our patients had resorted to hiding their neckline with scarves, high-necked blouses, and turtlenecks.

In contrast, a smooth, taut neckline is youthful and alluring. A neck lift lift can help restore the look of your youth by improving the overall contour of your neck, reducing crepiness, and strenghtening the jawline profile. A neck lift is oftentimes performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries.

Most neck lifts can be performed in our in-office surgical suite. Recovery expectations are dependent on the exact procedure (cervicoplasty; platysmaplasty) and any adjoining surgeries performed.

For optimum results, Dr. Poulos often recommends combining laser therapies and medical skincare with the necklift.
