Neck Lift for Tampa, FL, Patients
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that may help patients who are bothered by loose, “crepey” skin and fatty jowls on their neck and under their chin – the dreaded “turkey wattle” that sometimes appears with age or after weight loss. By tightening the skin and underlying muscles, the neck is effectively lifted to sharpen and accentuate the contour of the jawline. A neck lift can be performed either as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with a facelift.
At the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, renowned surgeon Dr. John Roach performs neck lift and other cosmetic procedures for patients in the Tampa, FL, area. Dr. Roach founded the clinic after completing seven years of demanding training in general, plastic, and reconstructive surgery with many well-respected surgeons. Throughout his education and career, he has earned numerous awards and recognition, including the esteemed honor of being named chief resident in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Today, he is well-known throughout the Tampa area and beyond for his outstanding surgical skill and unmatched patient care. If you are interested in a neck lift, Dr. Roach will be happy to consult with you to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of surgery.
A neck lift may involve one or more of the following surgical procedures:
- Liposuction – the removal of pockets of excess fat from the neck and chin areas
- Cervicoplasty – the tightening and removal of excess skin through incisions made behind the ears or under the chin
- Platysaplasty – the suturing and realignment of separated neck muscles to correct a vertically “banded” appearance
