The neck is often one of the first areas of the body to reveal signs of aging. Because the neck is often left uncovered in the sun and the skin on the neck is so thin, many women and men experience sagging of loose skin, wrinkling, and fatty deposits.
A neck lift, or platysmaplasty, is a procedure offered by Blair Plastic Surgery that can help you rejuvenate the appearance of skin around the neck. When you add in the liposuction procedure for excess fat removal, you can enhance your neck lift results and get a younger, more refreshed look.

The Problem with Neck Skin
Loss of elasticity in the neck skin can occur as early as the mid-thirties for many individuals. Factors such as aging, heredity, and environmental pollutants can contribute to the breakdown of important nutrients in the skin. As the neck skin ages, it can begin to sag and look weathered or leathery, resulting in the dreaded “turkey neck.”
Loose skin around the jawline can make people feel older than they are. Weight gain in the neck region can also make people feel self-conscious and want to wear clothing that covers up these flaws. Luckily, a neck lift procedure could be your solution to signs of aging in this region of the body.
Personalized Neck Lift Results
Dr. Louton can tailor your neck lift to fit your needs, tightening the skin and removing excess fat and skin to produce a smooth contour. Liposuction is performed to remove fat for a more toned, youthful contour. While some patients may need fat removal and skin lifting of the entire neck, others will only require liposuction and skin tightening under the chin.
All patients will see improvement in the definition of the jaw and neck. If you would like to apply this tightening principle to the facial area and reduce wrinkling and sagging in the forehead, cheeks, and hairline, you should consider having a facelift in conjunction with your neck lift.
