- Neck Lift
This 30 year old patient wanted improvement of her profile. Her major complain was small, retruded chin. After thorough facial analysis we discussed need to address the neck as well. Small chin and low insertion of neck muscles have created obtuse neck; there was no definition of her jawline, as well. After extensive discussion we decided to proceed with neck lift and placement of chin implant. Surgery was done in twilight anesthesia. Neck lift consisted of rearrangement of neck muscle and trimming of deep neck fat, to created normal neck/jaw angle. Augmentation with silicone chin implant created significant chin projection. Altogether, her facial balance have significantly improved. Photos before and 6 months after neck lift with platysmoplasty and chin augmentation with implant was performed.
