Are you interested in undergoing a neck lift surgery?
It’s no wonder: a neck lift procedure is a popular surgery that can help take years off of a patient’s appearance. Neck lift patients often report seeing tighter and firmer-looking skin, along with a reduction in neck wrinkles and bands (those deep lines that can criss-cross the neck).
Despite the neck lift’s popularity, many patients are hesitant to undergo the procedure because they don’t want to be left with any obvious incisions or surgical scars. Perhaps that’s why one of the most frequently asked questions during the consultation process includes:
“Where’s the incision for a neck lift?”
Neck Lift Incision Placement
Neck lift incision placement varies from patient to patient; however, most candidates can expect their neck lift incisions to be placed behind the ears and (if needed) directly underneath the chin. This specific surgical technique is called the minimal incision neck lift, and it’s a specialty of board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott A. Brenman.
Over the years, he’s fine-tuned the minimal incision neck lift procedure so as to produce almost-invisible surgical scars. The ultimate goal is to create an appearance that’s so flawless and natural-looking, no one will guess at your secret.
Candidates for a minimal incision neck lift procedure should moderate to severe signs of neck aging, which can include excess skin, noticeable jowls (or “turkey neck”), neck bands, deep wrinkles and lines, and more. All candidates should be healthy nonsmokers who have realistic expectations for the outcome of their neck lift procedure.
