Signs of aging aren’t limited to the face. They can melt into the neck area, creating crepey skin, the dreaded “turkey neck,” and prominent platysma muscle bands. This is why Dr. Adam Stein may recommend a facelift/neck lift combination, so turning back the clock is more complete.
How Does a Facelift Combined with a Neck Lift Work?
The last thing you want is the aged look of your neck giving away that you’ve had a facelift. A combined facelift with neck lift ensures the continuity and balance of your appearance, showcasing your best self through and through. The procedures address both skin laxity and the SMAS layer of musculature which supports your facial tissues. Time and lost collagen mean your tissues migrate downward, creating jowls, deepening nasolabial folds, and loosening skin of the neck. The platysma muscles, which begin at your upper chest and run to the hinge of your jaw, can also weaken, becoming prominent bands running vertically up your neck.
