Performs neck lift surgery (platysmaplasty) to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the neck for a smoother look. He also tightens neck muscles to redefine the jaw line, restore a normal chin and create a younger, fitter looking facial appearance. A neck lift is often combined with a face lift, brow lift, eyelid surgery and/or liposuction surgery for a totally proportional aesthetic solution.

Many males would like very much to remove the hanging skin below their chin – the so called "turkey neck" – and do not wish to undergo a full neck lift. For these patients, Dr. Pina uses a special procedure called the T-Z-plasty (see below) which has a high rate of satisfaction among patients who have it performed.

The Neck Lift Procedure

When he performs a neck lift in combination with both a face lift and eyelid surgery, Dr. Pina makes an incision under the chin or through minimal incisions hidden behind the ears.

When the neck lift is done at the same time as a face lift only, Dr. Pina lifts and re-drapes the skin over the tightened neck muscles.
