A neck lift (lower rhytidectomy) targets loose neck muscles that create the appearance of drooping skin or banding.
This procedure can dramatically change the contour of the jawline and smoothen the texture of the skin. During a neck lift, skin and muscles are tightened and then excess skin is removed.
This procedure can be combined with a facelift, to rejuvinate the lower face, a brow lift to correct sagging or wrinkles in the brow, fat transfer to create fuller lips and cheeks and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to rejuvenate aging eyes.
It is performed under general anesthesia in our onsite surgery center.
Recovery time is typically 5-7 days.
If you feel as though you might benefit from a neck lift, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Boudreault at our convenient Palo Alto location.
