A necklift is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed under general or local anaesthetic for patients with a sagging neck. For a harmonious result it is usually combined with a lower facelift.
Mild excess fat beneath the jawline can be improved by liposuction. However, significant skin excess requires tightening the skin and underlying muscles. This is usually performed as part of a facelift procedure. Occasionally, a separate incision beneath the chin is needed to repair the slackened neck muscles.
