A Direct Neck Plasty is a surgical procedure that’s also known as a Neck Lift or a Direct Neck Lift.

The neck does not attract a lot of attention as the signs of aging and drooping skin begin to take hold. It’s usually cheeks and eyelids and various lines or wrinkles that get most of the focus.

However, your neck is also susceptible to loose, sagging skin. A Direct Neck Plasty is an effective way to keep it in check.

The Basics

Neck Lift Surgery, or a Direct Neck Plasty is often useful when the patient isn’t an ideal candidate for a full facelift or neck liposuction alone. This may be true of men or women, depending on their situation.

The surgery aims to enhance the overall contour of the neck. There are patients that have some excess fat and early laxity of neck musculature, resulting in a full aged neck. In a direct neck plasty procedure, the surgeon removes fat from the neck area, above and below the neck muscle. Furthermore, neck muscles are tightened and the skin is redistributed from ear to ear. The scars are often hard to notice after a Direct Neck Plasty, sometimes blending in with natural lines in the neck. The typical incision is a small horizontal line below the chin and two small incisions around the ear lobes.

Why Would I Want One?

Direct Neck Plasty reshapes the contour of their neck. It can give an entirely new look to the whole face, even when the face wasn’t touched at all. That submental fullness of the neck is a telltale sign of getting older. As a result,  taking it away will create a youthful-looking neck contour in the most non-invasive way possible.

The Details

If you think that a Direct Neck Plasty may be the solution for excess skin, loose muscles or fat around your neck, you need to book a consultation to find out for sure. During a thorough consultation, you’ll learn all you need to know about how the procedure works and whether it is a good idea for your situation.

You’ll have pictures taken of your neck and you’ll be able to see before and after shots of other patients. Direct Neck Plasty seems pretty tame when compared to some other cosmetic surgical procedures, but the effects can be quite dramatic and long lasting.
