What Is The 5 Layer Neck Lift?

At the core of Dr. Shah's innovation is the recognition that an effective neck lift must address not just the skin or superficial layers but all the structural components that contribute to the neck's appearance. This holistic approach led to the development of the "5 Layer Neck Lift," which meticulously targets five distinct anatomical layers: skin, subcutaneous fat, the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (SMAS), deeper fat, and the platysma muscle.
