Procedure Overview

Limited Incision Necklift
A Limited Incision Necklift is an excellent procedure for those whose aging is primarily isolated to the neck and have relatively good skin tone. Via a small incision under the chin, excess fat is removed, muscles tightened, and soft tissue sculpted to improve neck contour.

Lower Face Necklift
Lower Face and Neck Lifts address primarily the jowl and neck region. Via incisions placed under the chin and around the ears, soft tissue and skin are re-positioned to give a youthful contour to the jowls and neck.

Extended Incision Necklift
An Extended Incision Neck Lift is intended for individuals with moderate to marked laxity isolated to the neck for which a limited incision neck lift would be inadequate. Via a small incision under the chin, excess fat is removed, muscles are tightened, and soft tissue is sculpted similar to a Limited Incision Neck Lift. In addition, an incision is made in the crease behind each ear, then extending down the hairline to aid in removal of significant neck skin, producing a rejuvenated appearance.
