This is a 53-year-old, female resident of Sonoma County, California, who presented to the Marin County office in Novato with complaints of fullness and laxity to the neck region. She did not desire a facelift and wanted only the neck area treated. She underwent a neck lift, which included suction-assisted lipectomy, or liposuction, platysma muscle tightening and skin resection from behind the ear. Her procedure was performed at Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center in Marin County, California. These photographs were taken one year after surgery. Note the improved angle of her jawline and the tightening of her skin.
