The ageing and sagging neck cannot always be successfully corrected using standard facelift techniques, even those that include extensive SMAS lift [1]. Adjuncts to treatment can include liposuction, radiofrequency or similar skin tightening procedures, open or closed platysmaplasty, extensive SMAS relocation perhaps including excision of submandibular gland and even direct neck skin excision [2]. The concept of suture suspension of the neck is not new and was clearly referenced by Mueller et al. in 2012 [3], but can involve simple biodegradable threads, synthetic ribbons and even fascial slings.
