Neck Lifting: this procedure repositions the sagging muscle that is the foundation of the face. In addition, excess skin is removed.
This procedure frequently also addresses the loose “platysma” muscle in the neck by performing a tightening of that muscle, a procedure known as a platysmaplasty. In addition, face lifting can be combined with liposuction to remove the fat from underneath the chin and to smooth out the jowls.
Typically, a full face-lift also addresses the forehead and brow and is performed with the patient asleep under general anesthesia.
