There is nothing more unattractive then sagging skin on your neck, not to mention rolls of fat that give you the look of having lots of folds and creases. There is a solution to this problem and that is a neck lift. There are numerous cosmetic surgeons in Denverwho can assist with your cosmetic needs.

A neck lift is normally a combination of 3 procedures, one to remove your excess skin, another to tighten or remove the neck muscles and the final is liposuction to remove fat deposits from your neck.

Cervicoplasty and Platysmaplasty

Your surgeon will make two incisions just under or behind your ear. If this is combined with platysmaplasty, a small incision will be under your chin. Your sagging skin will be trimmed, lifted into place and stitched. Next, fat and muscle will be removed and the ends are stitched together at the front part of your neck. For an even firmer look, skin may be brought together just under or behind your ear as well.

A neck lift is a combination of various procedures, but you may only need to have one procedure performed to enhance the appearance of your neck.

Neck Liposuction - is a procedure that removes fat from your neck, in some cases this is all that needs to be done to improve the appearance of your neck. But this can only be done if you do not have excess, droopy skin on your neck.

Facelift - this procedure can remove excess fat and skin from your facial area, including your neck. It can also tighten your jaw line. This can alleviate the signs of aging in your face as well as your neck.
