Limited Incision (Mini) Neck Lift:
This procedure is performed to establish a youthful angular jaw and neckline. It differs from the more extensive necklift in that there is only a small incision under the chin from which the fat is removed from the neck, muscles are tightened and in some cases a chin implant placed to re-establish the natural clean jawline and angular neckline. This procedure is performed in individuals who have enough remaining elasticity in their skin to redrape into the new neck contour created by the above maneauvers. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with sedation or light general anesthesia, the recovery is typically 3-4 days in which the patient is back to normal work activities in an office setting. There is minimal bruising and minimal discomfort associated with this procedure. The results are long lasting typically more than 10-15 years and quite natural in appearance.
