In a female, a well-defined neck silhouette represents youthfulness and beauty. As one ages, a combination of loose, hanging skin and the accumulation of fat under the chin contribute to the loss of a well defined neck. While advanced changes in the neck, like those of a “turkey wattle”, are usually corrected by a facelift, early changes in the neck can often be addressed in a more limited procedure, a neck lift. A neck lift can redefine that beautiful neck line by eliminating any excessive fat under the chin, tightening and resuspending the lax muscles of the neck, and, removing the lax skin. Sometimes a neck lift will be performed in conjuction with chin augmentation to enhance the facial profile.
