Neck Lift


Neck Lift By removing excess fat and skin in the neck and under the chin, and tightening the muscles in that area, a neck lift rejuvenates the lower portion of the face. The saggy layers of skin and concentrated areas of fat are lifted and smoothed, creating a more attractive, youthful, and better defined neck and facial contour.
