Neck lift surgery by Dr. Zuckerman is a targeted cosmetic surgery of the neck to address ptosis (sag), excess deposits of fat, vertical bands due to muscle laxity, and more. Hanging skin under the jaw or in the frontal portion of the neck are often informally called turkey neck or turkey wattle, and a neck lift is a highly effective and safe corrective procedure. Weight gain or loss, sun damage, genetics, and simply aging can result in these aesthetic issues. With this procedure, Dr. Zuckerman can lift and tighten the tissue of the neck by removing excess skin or fat and in some cases by tightening certain neck muscles. In addition, some patients may require only submental, under the chin, liposuction. Many patients combine a neck lift with a full or mini facelift, and Dr. Zuckerman will advise you as to which procedure may be the best fit for you. Dr. Zuckerman trained at some of the most elite institutions in the world including Brown University and New York University and will do his utmost to ensure a safe, comfortable surgical experience and a high-quality, subtle, natural-looking result.
