I think I need a neck lift. The skin hangs down around my neck in folds. Where is the incision and is the neck muscle actually tightened? Can you remove some neck fat at the same time?
The first incision is under the chin in a crease. It is about 1 ½ inches long. Through this incision the platysma muscle is tightened. The next incision is made around the ear lobe and extended up into the crease behind the ear. The back end of the platysma is tightened through this incision and skin trimmed as the neck is elevated. Liposuction is performed to liposculpt the neck as needed.
