Neck correction: Liposculpture, liposuction of the neck and chin. Detailed price list and before and after photos. ISO quality guarantee.
The skin at the neck is thinner than the skin on the face. This is why the neck often ages faster than the face. The skin on the neck may become slack and start to sag. Fat can accumulate there and wrinkles and folds may appear. Fortunately for every problem there is a tailor-made solution.

Neck correction - Neck lift: Platysmaplasty
Correction of the neck muscle
A PLATYSMA - neck lift (platysmaplasty) only corrects the slack muscle band of the neck.
Sometimes only the front of the neck sags. As a result two vertical folds appear running from the chin to the collarbone. In this case an extensive neck lift is not necessary and a platysmaplasty can be performed. No skin is removed as by pulling the platysma muscles tight at the front of the neck, the folds disappear.

By simply tightening the platysma muscle bands at the front of the neck the folds disappear.

Correction of the skin and muscles of the neck
An SMAS neck lift also corrects :
- the jawline - hamster cheeks/jowls;
- the folds in the middle of the neck: turkey neck;
- the position of the subcutaneous fatty tissue and skin;
- the firmness of the underlying muscle layer of the face, bottom of the mouth and neck;
- the excess fatty tissue under the skin;
- Excess skin
A neck lift (the lifting and removal of excess skin) is performed in combination with an SMAS and platysma muscle correction.
In fact the sagging SMAS and muscles weigh on your skin and as a result the skin at the neck becomes increasingly slack.
If you need an SMAS neck lift the the surgeon makes a small incision under the skin to correct the subcutaneous muscles and to improve the contour of the neck. Then the skin is tightened via an incision in front of or in the ear and if necessary in the hair-covered skin at the back of the head.
An SMAS facelift always gives the best results when combined with an SMAS neck lift, in fact both procedures are often combined. Of course you can just have an SMAS neck lift, which improves the contour of the neck, making it more beautiful and younger-looking.

The extra SMAS neck plication results in a lovely, tighter neck.
The SMAS (Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System) is an anatomic tissue layer, which is connected to the platysma muscle band in the neck.
A neck lift (lifting and removing excess skin) is performed in combination with a SMAS and platysma muscle band correction. The sagging SMAS and muscles weigh on your skin, which means the skin on your neck becomes looser.
If you require a SMAS neck lift, the surgeon will make a small incision under the chin to correct the subcutaneous muscles and give the neckline an attractive contour. The skin is then tightened via an incision in front of or in the ear and, if necessary, in the hair-covered skin at the back of the head.
Liposculpture of the chin and neck
Double chin correction
If you don't have any excess skin around the neck but you do have excess fatty tissue then LIPOSCULPTURE of the NECK can offer a solution.
If there is too much fat under the chin and around the neck this often produces a double chin. A fuller neck can make you look fatter and older than you really are. With neck liposculpture we can remove the excess fat via a small incision under the chin.
Neck liposculpture is often combined with a facelift, platysmaplasty or SMAS plication. Though you can still count on a beautiful result if you just opt for liposcupture of the neck. In our experience the skin around the neck becomes tighter and firmer after liposculpture.

When there is too much fat under the chin and in the neck, it often creates a double chin. A full neck can make you look fatter and older than your actual age. We can use neck liposculpture, via a small incision under the chin, to remove the excess fat.
Neck liposculpture is often performed in combination with a facelift, platysmaplasty or SMAS plication. However you can also count on a great result if you only receive liposculpture of the neck. In our experience the skin on the neck also appears firmer and tighter after liposculpture.
