Question: What sort of conditions does the necklift address?
Answer: A neck lift addresses jowls and laxity under the chin by lifting up the deeper layer of the face called the SMAS. Excess skin is lifted with this and then removed and incisions in and around the ear are closed with sutures that are removed in a week. It essentially does what most women do in the mirror when they look at themselves and they are showing signs of aging, and that is they grab the sides of their face and they lift a little bit and this lifts the jowls and laxity under the chin and they like what they see. A neck lift will accomplish this same goal and can be performed in the office setting without the need for any sort of general anesthesia.
