What is a neck-lift?

Q: What is a neck-lift?

A: Some people age prematurely in the neck. This may be a familial trait—especially in the chin; if the chin is weak, the neck will age more rapidly. The “turkey” or “chook” neck is an obvious sign of ageing that patients around 40 often want fixed. Men in particular lose their youthful look when the jaw sags.

A neck-lift is done with a small incision behind the ears and another under the chin. The loose muscles under the chin are brought together and any excessive fat is carefully re-modeled. In addition, particularly in men, a specially designed Giampapa nylon suture is used to sling up the muscles to give a tighter, more defined masculine jaw.

A neck-lift is appropriate for a limited number of female patients. The result probably only lasts four to six years because the rest of the face will age and catch up with the neck. So eventually you need the real thing—a facelift.
