Right-Angle Necklift Surgery
The Right-Angle Necklift procedure allows Dr. Matthew White to surgically address all dimensions of an aging neckline, providing the maximum degree of enhancement. Dr. White has long perfected this highly-customized surgical process to achieve what he describes as “Gold Standard” results in jawline and neck recontouring. To understand exactly what Dr. White means by The Right-Angle Necklift, imagine an in-profile 90-degree angle between the underside of the chin and the front side of the neck (think Angelina Jolie, he suggests).
Achievement of this youthful geometry requires a dynamic surgical plan that incorporates precise adjustments to aging tissues and structures of the neck, including:
- Musculature and ligaments – Dr. White smoothes and tightens the large thin muscle that covers the deep structures of the neck. He also “releases the ligaments” that help suspend this muscle, repositioning and reattaching them to provide improved structural lift and support.
- Fat – Fat deposits are removed via liposuction to provide a tighter, smoother contour.
- Soft Tissue – The soft tissue canvas is lifted and tightened to eliminate sagging and jowling at the deeper level.
- Skin – Loose skin is smoothed and lifted to eliminate creasing and tighten contours at the most superficial level.
Ultimately, with the Right-Angle Necklift, Dr. White strives to create a perfectly sculpted neckline that exudes youth and vibrancy. Contours are smoother, leaner, and more lifted, with results typically lasting more than ten years. Because the entire neck lift procedure is performed through small, inconspicuous incisions placed behind the ears and below the chin, any minor scars are often virtually undetectable. Recovery after necklift takes about two weeks, but the majority of Dr. White’s patients agree that the results of his Right-Angle Necklift are worth the modest amount of downtime required.
For individuals seeking a non-surgical alternative to necklift, Dr. White also performs comprehensive neckline rejuvenation, accomplished with a combination of injectable treatments and Ultherapy®, as well as KYBELLA™ Treatment (if necessary) for fat reduction below the chin.
