Z-plasty Neck Lift

Z-plasty Neck Lift: A specific type of neck lift that uses a Z-shaped incision pattern to remove a limited amount of excess skin, particularly effective for addressing horizontal neck bands.

Pros: Less invasive than a traditional neck lift, with potentially shorter recovery time and a more discreet scar.

Cons: May not be suitable for significant skin laxity or a prominent “turkey wattle.”

Alternatives: Traditional neck lift or non-surgical options depending on the severity of concerns.

Recovery Time: 1-2 weeks, with less swelling and bruising compared to other neck lift procedures.

Disclaimer: Individual results vary. Consulting a board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial to discuss expectations and potential complications.
