Similar to the face, aging can cause loose skin and changes in fat distribution resulting in a “turkey neck” or “double chin” and can reveal muscle banding. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, aims to improve the contour of the jawline and neck.

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately 3-4 hours.

Dr. Nguyen will start by making an incision under the chin, hidden in a natural skin fold, and perform lipo-dissection to the entire neck. Additional incisions are made behind the ear with extension into the hairline to fully visualize the neck. Any muscle bands, excess fat, or jowls will be addressed. before the skin is redraped and sutured using a combination of dissolvable and permanent sutures. A small drain will be placed to allow fluid drainage and is removed the following day. Patients will stay for overnight observation unless he/she/they are within x(10?) minutes from the office/hospital and can be seen in-office the next day.

Similar to facelift, can be combined with other facial surgery procedures
