Patients who complain of excess neck skin, neck wrinkling, or patients who complain of a "turkey neck" may benefit from a neck lift. Dr. Smith uses many different techniques to perform a neck lift. The choice of technique is dependent upon the underlying cause of the deformity. These causes range from excess skin laxity, excess submental or cervical fat, to platysmal (neck muscle) banding. Often a neck lift is performed as part of a full facelift. Once Dr. Smith has seen you for a consult, performed a thorough examination, and reviewed your medical records and medical history, he will be able to recommend which options are best indicated for you.
