A Neck Lift, also known as lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to create a more youthful-looking neck and jawline. It’s done to provide better definition to the neck and the angle of the jaw by removing some of the fat and by tightening the muscles along the neck. The surgery can correct the skin laxity, eliminate sagging skin and help achieve a more youthful look of the neck.
The surgery can also fix visible muscle banding in the neck and correct double chin caused by aging. The procedure is also helpful in cases where extreme weight loss has caused extra folds of the skin.
