Neck and/or dewlap lift surgery

Neck lift or dewlap lift surgery is a surgical treatment that we do at Clínica Sanza Barcelona. The face can improve greatly with medical-aesthetical treatments, however, the neck, will only be effective with plastic surgery. The day that a non-surgical treatment is created for a breast improvement, then there will also be a non-surgical treatment for the neck. Hence, all the other treatments that state to improve or better the neck without surgery are false.

A neck lifting is the repositioning of all the muscle, fat and skin that with time has aged. Another cause can also be due to losing a vast amount of weight.

Clínica Sanza in Barcelona, Spain, is a centre of reference in the treatment of neck and dewlap lift surgery.
