Many of my Houston facelift patients are not as concerned about their neck or do not have a neck that requires a necklift or liposuction of the neck. Those facelift patients' main concerns may be jowling, downturned corners of the mouth, or marionette lines. The ncek may not have significant fat, laxity, or banding of the platysma on exam. It is important to understand that a mini facelift or short scar facelift will improve the neck as well. Suspending the SMAS in the face, which is an extension of the platysma in the neck, will help the neck to a degree.
