A Necklift, as part of a facelift, or as a separate procedure alone, can help a patient look significantly younger. As people age, their muscles weaken, their skin loses elasticity, and the jowls often see an increase in fat. The face becomes “square” losing the “heart shape” contour we had in our youth. Patients usually notice these changes in the profile photographs of their neck. When they start to see that “turkey neck,” in a photo or in person, it is usually time to consider a necklift.

In most patients, the neck looks old because of skin laxity and sagging of the platysma muscles. This process creates visible, vertical bands in the neck, e.g. the turkey neck. These problems can be corrected by removal of excess skin, and tightening of the platysma muscles.

In addition to aging at the skin and platysma level, aging can also occur at the deeper levels of the neck such as the sub-platysma fat, digastric muscles, and submandibular glands. Unlike many surgeons, Dr Kelly is comfortable with the surgical correction of these areas as well.

Dr. Kelly tailors each surgery to meet the individual patient’s needs, which allows for a better outcome for a variety of facial types

As needed for each facial type,
his necklift procedures may include:

  • Tightening of the platysma muscle in the midline and an inferior release to improve the neck contour.
  • Shaving of the Digastric muscles as needed
  • Shaving of the Submandibular glands as needed
  • Fat removal from areas of excess and fat grafting to areas of fat loss.
  • Removal of excess skin without tension
