Neck lift Mountain View
Necklift surgery is typically performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures, such as facelift surgery or eyelid surgery, to achieve youthful, natural-looking facial rejuvenation results. During your personal consultation with Dr. Robert Lowen, he can explain the options available and determine an appropriate treatment plan to fit your specific needs.
For this technique, a small incision is made under the chin. Neck muscles are tightened and modified to improve the angle of the neck and remove excess fat and fullness, creating a more youthful and attractive look. Additionally, because the incisions are placed in the contours of the jawline, scarring is typically only minimally visible after healing takes place.
Excess fat in the neck is removed with Precision TX laser-assisted liposuction through a small incision under the chin. Neck and mandibular border definition is obtained by the use of a suspension suture anchored in the fascia behind the ear and in the midline under the chin. The suture acts as a sling to pull in the lax neck muscle and reinforce the midline muscle repair. Appropriate tension applied to the suture provides definition and keeps it from being felt by the patient after surgery.
