Often the neck shows signs of aging before the face because of genetics or weight fluctuations. Lower face and chin weakness may contribute to lax skin and muscles of the neck. Some patients are more concerned with these signs of aging on the neck than on the face. Dr. Zoran Potparic performs neck lift surgery in Fort Lauderdale, either as an individual procedure or along with a facelift, to help women and men look rejuvenated and feel more confident.

NECK REJUVENATION OPTIONS
Depending on the underlying conditions and patient anatomy, neck correction can be achieved in different ways. Frequently, neck contouring is performed as part of a facelift. However, in select, usually younger patients, Dr. Potparic may perform neck contouring with liposuction alone.
Also, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be used instead of surgery to relax parts of the platysma muscle that create neck “bands.”
NECK LIFT PROCEDURE DETAILS
Most of the candidates for a neck lift (without a facelift) have weak or loose neck muscles (creating a “turkey wattle”) associated with mild to moderate excess of fat and skin. To correct this deformity, a surgeon must perform what is called cervico-platysmaplasty. In other words, a surgeon needs to tighten the platysma muscle in the neck and remove the excess skin and fat tissue accordingly.
The incisions for neck lift are well hidden, placed underneath the chin and behind the ear.
