A neck lift at Los Angeles area’s Sunset Cosmetic Surgery reduces problems with the fat, muscle, and skin of the neck and jaw line. Sagging skin, fleshy neck, “jowls,” neck “banding,” or “turkey wattle” are all common complaints that can be addressed with this surgery, also known as platysmaplasty. Neck lifts are done through a small incision under the chin and are often incorporated as part of a lower face lift. The neck muscles are treated, stitched, and tightened to lift the “muscle hammock” and create a more refined jaw/neck contour. This lift can also be done under local anesthesia.
