Special Issue Introduction

Surgical rejuvenation of the neck is one of the most elusive and frustrating components of facial rejuvenation. In some cases, a seemingly good initial aesthetic result turns into a suboptimal outcome in a few months. In other cases, surgeons cannot explain why the neck still has residual bulging, irregular contour or lose skin despite her/his most meticulous approach. Some others see early recurrence of platysma bands although he/she has done all the learned procedures to treat this condition. What did I do wrong? What is even more frustrating is to see presentations at national meetings showing excellent outcomes with the surgeon claiming that he/she uses only the lateral approach or the “short scar” facelift when clearly in the view of other surgeons, many patients require the anterior neck approach as well or a more extensive cervicoplasty. What is the magic?
This special issue will assemble several experts to describe many sophisticated advances in neck rejuvenation. The commonality is our passion for the aesthetic surgery of face and neck. We will help you navigate through the anatomical, surgical and aesthetic complexities of the neck and bounding structures to obtain better results in neck rejuvenation.
