This video demonstrates patient selection, aesthetic analysis and surgical planning for an isolated neck lift with lipofilling. This procedure is indicated in the relatively young patient who demonstrates cervical laxity but only early signs of facial aging. The video demonstration emphasizes approaches to platysmaplasty, accurate contouring of cervical fat, the technique of lateral platysma window with preservation of the great auricular nerve as well as considerations for contouring the jawline and lower third of the cheek. The technique of autologous fat injections to correct facial deflation is demonstrated.

LSD (Lateral Skin-platysma Displacement) is a technique to treat platysma bands and anterior skin laxity without a submental incision. Evolution of the technique together with important issues and resolutive suggestions are discussed like: how to avoid cheese-wiring, how to carry out an effective platysma dislocation and anchoring, and how to treat excess cervical fat. Lateral approach to submandibular gland reduction can be performed through the lateral approach with great advantages as time saving, reduced risks and avoidance risk of airways compressing hematoma.
