Face Lift

Your Neck

If you are considering neck lift surgery (platysmaplasty), this is where you want to be. Advancing age, hereditary fat deposits (think double chin) and gravity can all take their toll on the look and feel of your neck. You can even develop a turkey wattle if the skin under your chin slackens. If this sounds all too familiar, you may be a good candidate for neck lift surgery.

In this section, we tell you all you need to know about platysmaplasty, including important safety information in our article on neck lift risk. We also tell you what to expect during your neck lift recovery and offer some tips on how to best prepare for it. Our neck lift cost article gives you the bottom line on how much this surgery costs (including hidden fees). We also provide a list of frequently ask questions about neck lift surgery along with their concise answers in case we left anything out.

Our doctor-approved neck lift section should help you better prepare for your consultation with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon or a board-certified plastic surgeon.
