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 to give you that youthful look you always dreamed of.
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. Once complete, Dr. Nguyen will use a combination of dissolvable and permanent sutures.
A small drain will be placed to allow fluid drainage and is removed the following day. General Recovery is usually 6 weeks and then you are back to your normal actives.
