Neck lifts typically require a small incision under the chin. This chin incision is well hidden in a natural crease and is used largely to access fat in the neck for liposuction, chin augmentation, or neck muscle tightening.
Additional incisions may be made behind the ears for patients who undergo neck liposuction or a facelift. The facelift incision may be anywhere from the temple, side burns, around the ear, and/or upper neck. The incision location and length varies largely based on the age of the patient and how much lift an individual needs. Dr. Chaboki will minimize the incision but maximize the lift, without creating an unnatural appearance. The facelift incision, regardless of exact location, fades over time.
