A neck lift performed by Dr. Angela Sturm can eliminate sagging skin and help you achieve a more youthful, contoured neck and jawline.
What Is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to firm and tighten the skin of the neck to reduce signs of aging and create a more youthful appearance. The procedure can also enhance the contours of the jawline and tighten up the submental area beneath the chin.
When performing a neck lift, Dr. Sturm’s goal is to create a smoother, firmer skin texture and improved definition while significantly reducing skin laxity. During the procedure, she typically starts with a small incision beneath the chin. Through this incision, she then removes excess skin as needed and carefully tightens the underlying neck muscles using sutures. In many cases, the neck lift procedure will also involve the removal of excess submental fat via liposuction.
