Many patients are bothered by slight skin excess in the neck area. Noninvasive treatments have shown minimal results in these areas. An excellent option is a minimal incision neck lift. This procedure uses small incisions located behind the ear to undermine the skin, tighten the platysma muscle, and remove excess skin. Liposuction can be added to the submental region to improve the overall contour. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia in the office and takes less than 1 hour. Recovery takes 5-7 days at which point all sutures are removed.
In the right patient, this procedure can be very rewarding. Very full necks may require a more aggressive treatment. Also, patients that would benefit from midface and lower face lift as well may be better served with a mini facelift. In general, patients in their 40s and early 50s are great candidates for this procedure. Male patients who desire a natural neck correction without the scars typically associated with a facelift are also excellent candidates.
