A delicate procedure that requires an expert touch.
What to expect during a neck lift?
This procedure can be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Markelov carefully examines each patient’s face and formulates an individualized plan for fat removal and subsequent sculpting of the area. Discreet incisions are made along the lower hairline toward the ears, stretching along the hairline to the base of the neck.
Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the jowls and neck. The underlying tissue is repositioned, and commonly the platysma muscles are tightened. Skin is re-draped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away.
