Sometimes heredity, gravity, stress and environmental conditions can spare a woman’s youthful face, but be strongly evident in the skin of a her neck and jawline.

Patients have come to Orlando Cosmetic Surgery, and explained that only their neck “gave away” their true age.

For patients such as these, there is a special surgery designed for the neck area.

According to expert definition, “A neck lift (or lower rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat around your jaw line, creating a more defined and youthful-looking neck.”

Problems caused by aging in the neck area can lead to an appearance of age and worry that do not match the youth and energy of a woman’s upper face, or of her personality, regardless of her chronological age.

When Rhytidectomy Can Help


Even the most self-assured woman can have her confidence reduced by these signs of age in this area:

1. Excess fat and overly relaxed skin in the lower face can build jowls.

2. Fat deposits under the chin can ruin the contour of the chin and the angle of the jaw.

3. Sagging and wrinkling of the neck skin can create the “turkey wattle” effect, which can be distracting from even the most youthful of mature faces.

4. Loose neck skin muscle can give the appearance of banding and deep lines in the neck.  What is a neck lift?

All of these problems can be improved or corrected with the surgical procedure called the “neck lift,”or lower rhytidectomy.Orlando Cosmetic Surgery sculpts the neck.

If you look in the mirror and you see some of the problems listed above, this surgery might be right for you.

If you feel like your neck area appears older and more stressed than your face, then a rhytidectomy at Orlando Cosmetic Surgery might be a good option.

Not only will this surgery correct the contours of your neck, but it will also increase your confidence and lift your self esteem. When the neck area simply doesn’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.

Please feel free to consult with Orlando Cosmetic Surgery to discover more details about this surgery, and discern if it is an option for you.

Combining Surgical Procedures

This surgery combines very nicely with rejuvenation procedures that can be performed at the same time. For example, many of our patients elect a simultaneous brow lift, which corrects a wrinkly brow.

You also might find that fat transfer could add fullness to your lips and cheeks. Likewise, this surgery can be combined with eyelid surgery to restore an entirely youthful appearance.

At Orlando Cosmetic Surgery, we want our patients to understand the limits of neck lift surgery.

Although it can enhance your appearance and restore some of the youthful contour of your throat and jaw area,  “a neck lift does not change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process.”

The Doctors and Staff at Orlando Cosmetic Surgery also want our patients to know that a proper neck lift can only be accomplished with surgery. Beware of non-surgical rejuvenation treatments and throat creams that claim to accomplish the same surgical results.
