Cervicoplasty is the medical name for a necklift. This cosmetic procedure is designed to help men and women with a fleshy neck, often referred to in a most unflattering term as a “turkey neck.” Dr. Gardenier based in Portland, Maine can help you rejuvenate your appearance by performing a neck lift. A sagging neck is often the result of such factors as aging, genetics, and being overweight.

Create a more youthful, attractive profile with a strategic neck lift. While we typically tend to focus on the age-related flaws that appear in the face, such as wrinkles, fine lines and furrows, the neck can contribute significantly and unexpectedly to a deteriorated aesthetic, especially as the skin begins to sag and unwanted banding forms.

During the neck lift procedure, Dr. Gardenier will remove excess fat and skin from the neck. The neck muscles are either removed or altered. Through this surgical neck lift procedure you will see a more defined and aesthetically pleasing neck and jawline appearance.

This can be performed alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as a facelift, liposuction or a chin implant in order to further enhance the appearance of the neck. One procedure alone like liposuction or a chin implant can bring about a better neck appearance. To find out what technique(s) can help you enhance the appearance of your neck, consult with the Doctor and the Patient Care Coordinator at Maine Plastic Surgery located in Portland, Maine at (207) 213-1867.

Excess skin and fatty tissue beneath the jaw is referred to as a double chin. Many patients with this problem can be treated by direct fat excision via a small incision under the chin. This allows fat removal from the neck and jowl region to establish a better look for your face. If there is too much loose neck skin and muscle, a facelift or neck lift procedure is necessary to properly correct the age changes. Liposuction of the neck region and direct fat excision with muscle tightening can be performed under local anesthesia.
