Aging, weight fluctuations, and sun exposure can damage and age not only the face but also the neck. If your neck skin appears to have lost its natural elasticity and sags, or if there is excess skin or fat that you wish to remove, a neck lift can help. It improves the most visible signs of aging through removing and redistributing excess fatty deposits, tightening underlying muscles, and removing sagging skin.
Neck lift surgeries are performed at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery of Arizona by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jamie Moenster. Incisions are made either into the hairline, near the ear, or under the chin, depending on whether you get a traditional, mini or direct neck lift. Dr. Moenster may also remove or redistribute the fat in the neck to provide a more toned look.
