I have too much skin on my neck. I would like a weekend / neck facelift

Question:

I have too much skin on my neck. I would like a weekend / neck facelift but I would like to have it done under local anesthesia. I hope this is possible. Do you actually cut off the extra skin? Where do you make the incision?

Answer:

If you have too much skin on your neck, this would probably require a necklift in conjunction with a weekend lift. A small amount of excess skin can actually be improved with just a weekend lift but many patients come in with a lot of extra skin and if only a weekend lift is performed, they would probably be disappointed. For this reason, an accurate evaluation needs to be performed as well as a determination if the patient would benefit from lipo-suction of the neck which is also routinely performed with a necklift. The incisions are made behind the ear and are hidden very well so that the patients can wear their hair up or short. Posted by Dr. Williams
