Skin, muscles and tissue can settle out of position, once this happens then the facial structure changes, and in extreme cases, it can pull on other facial areas. When individuals have this loose appearance in their skin, there will be folds of skin and deep creases forming because the skin loses its elasticity and the muscles are lax.
Dr. Zuriarrain will hold an initial consultation with every candidate for this procedure. First, he will determine the reasoning the patient wants the procedure and then checks their past and current medical history.
Once he sees they meet all the criteria, such as no prescribed medication, recreational drugs, herbal supplements or the candidate is refraining from smoking or drinking heavily, he will conduct an examination of the skin in the problem areas. He may recommend an accompanying procedure, or find that a neck lift as a standalone procedure is enough to reach the patient’s ideal goals. He will take measurements and pictures for reference and as part of the before and after pictures, these will be used to ensure you met your goals for the procedure, and that Dr. Z met his goal of delivering a natural-looking neck lift.
Neck lifts can be done under local or general anesthesia. At this stage, an incision will be made under the chin. Here the connecting tissues will be released from the muscles.

If patients have excessive fat deposits, then liposuction may be used to remove this before the skin is smoothed back over the underlying tissues and any excess skin is removed. This can also lead to a better contour of the lower portion of the face, and a youthful appearance. In extreme cases, platysma corset plasty may be recommended to correct a jawline where there are excess jowls and the muscles are extremely lax.
