Question: Is a deep neck lift something different from just a neck lift? Can you explain what it is and what it treats?
Answer: The meaning of different procedures varies from region to region or sometimes surgeon to surgeon. In general, it is best to talk about the neck lift in terms of what tissues are being elevated. The skin can be lifted, subcutaneous fat can be removed or liposuctioned, the platysma muscle in the neck can be tightened and occasionally tissues in the neck can also be tightened. Depending on which layer is the primary area of tightening, the lift can be done on deeper and deeper levels and it’s more important to make sure that the neck is properly diagnosed.
