Neck Lift Sydney
A neck lift procedure aims to rejuvenate the neck and restore a youthful contour. As we age, the area under our chins can develop excess fat, sagging skin or muscles. This can give the appearance of weight gain even if you have not actually gained any weight. It also known as a “turkey neck”.
Typically the redundancy of the neck tissues is also seen in the face. The best way to rejuvenate the neck is with a combined face and neck lift. This allows the tissues to be lifted out of the neck and off the jawline and for the incision lines to be hidden up in the hairline and in skin creases around the ear. Dr Roth is one of the few surgeons in the world who has trained with Dr Neil Gordon in the deep plane facelift. This procedure most adequately addresses the ageing neck.
Coolsculpting is a non-surgical procedure that targets fat cells. Part of the ageing neck may include the development of localised deposits of fat under the chin. This can give the appearance of a double chin. Coolsculpting can help improve this appearance by removing fat. However, it is not as useful if there significant redundant skin as this will remain even if the fat deposits are removed.
Liposuction like Coolsculpting removes fat but requires general anaesthesia. It can be of some limited use to remove fat but does not tighten skin.
This procedure focuses on the platysma muscle that sits just underneath the skin’s surface at the front of the neck. Over time, this muscle can create significant horizontal bands around the neck, adding to an aged appearance. A platysmaplasty is a surgical procedure that stitches the edges of the muscle together, to create a smoother neck surface. This is part of a facelift and neck lift.
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the neck, creating a smoother contour and a more youthful look. It is frequently combined with a facelift to achieve the best possible results. Incisions are hidden around the ear and in the hairline.
There are a variety of techniques that can be used for the neck lift, allowing Dr Roth to customise the procedure to the unique needs of each patient.
