A person’s neck can betray their true age. Sagging skin, a “turkey wattle,” and excess neck fat all make for an unappealing image and can result in a bad first impression. The neck lift is used to recontour the neck, creating a beautiful, youthful appearance.
To remove excess drooping skin during a neck lift, an incision is first created behind the ears and the hairline. These camouflaged incisions are used as access points to elevate the skin of the neck. Once the procedure is completed, the incisions are sealed using surgical clips and medical stitches.
