Neck Lift (Ribbon Lift)
A neck lift (or platysmaplasty) is a surgical procedure of the neck itself. It commonly addresses excess skin and fat beneath the chin and neck to improve jawline definition. Traditional neck lifting is outside the scope of Dr Hollenbach’s practice, but he is able to refer patients to an appropriate qualified plastic surgeon for this procedure.
Dr Hollenbach does perform ribbon lifting around the jowls and beneath the jawline in the upper neck, which is effective in tightening this part of the face. Whilst this does not address the loose tissues of the neck itself, other procedures at Prèface Cosmetic can be effective as a non-surgical alternative. These procedures include collagen stimulation with Thermage and Fraxel re:pair CO2 skin resurfacing.
