Neck Lift | Dr. Stavros Economou Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon in Limassol, Cyprus

It is very often that the neck losses its defining angles and a neck lift is often the only way to redefine and contour the graceful lines of the neck.

A graceful and beautiful neck is something that is often thought of as unattainable. Contrary to common belief it is possible to improve the contour and shape of the neck with a neck lift operation.

Neck lift

Depending on the amount of contour changes, skin laxity and excess; Dr. Economou will set an operation plan that will suit your individual needs.

In most cases a neck lift is combined with a facelift and the incision is extended behind the ear and into the hairline making it well hidden. In addition in cases of neckbands or minimal skin laxity, a small incision hidden under the chin is used to correct the shape and tighten the skin of the neck.

Often a combination of these techniques is necessary to offer the best of results. Finally it is sometimes necessary to perform liposuction to the neck to enhance its definition even further.

The Incision

  • Firstly Dr. Economou designs the incission lines for a neck lift surgery in a way as to hide the scars within the hairline and behind the ear.
  • More importantly, we use modern techniques to address neck skin relaxation. These methods rely on underlying tissues to lift the skin. Therefore the skin is left free to move without tension in a natural way.
  • In addition and in cases of intense, neckbands or minimal skin laxity, we use a small incision; hidden under the chin to correct the shape and tighten the skin of the neck.

Closing the incisions

Dr. Economou, closes all the incisions in layers, relieving the skin from any tension ensuring minimal scaring. Finally a close attention to detail and excellent technique ensures consistently good results.
