Neck Lift (Ribbon Lift)

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 would be happy to organise referral to an appropriate well-qualified plastic surgeon for this procedure. However, Dr Hollenbach does perform ribbon lifting around the jowls and beneath the jawline which is very effective in tightening this part of the face. Whilst this does not address the loose and flabby tissues of the neck itself, other procedures at Prèface Cosmetic can be quite effective as a non-surgical alternative. These procedures include collagen stimulation with Thermage and Fraxel re:pair CO2 skin resurfacing. In the past, Dr. Hollenbach performed thread lifting procedures of the neck, but found these to be unsatisfactory as no matter what type of technique he used, the threads would disengage due to excessive neck movements.
