A novel method for cervicofacial rejuvenation by submandibular neck lifting with platysma resection is presented. Between 2003 and 2009 we performed submandibular neck lifting in 18 cases. This technique is an isolated but efficient procedure for lifting of the neck. An additional advantage might be the possibility of doing the procedure with tumescence local anesthesia. In all cases, satisfactory aesthetic results were achieved.
