The neck is often one of the earliest and most telling signs of aging. Neck lift surgery works to improve the appearance of loosened neck muscles and excess skin.

There are several different procedures that Dr. Boyd can perform to improve the appearance of the neck. Because the causes of excess skin in this region vary, an individual assessment is needed. Incisions are made under the chin and/or behind the ears to manipulate underlying muscles in the front and back, which are ultimately stitched to eliminate the “turkey neck” appearance.

In some cases, a neck lift, or Platysmaplasty is paired with the surgical removal of fatty tissue (liposuction), a chin implant or skin tightening procedure.
