With age, the skin, tissue and muscles in the neck area begin to sag, resulting in the loss of a defined jawline. When this occurs, a lift can dramatically improve your aging neck contours and tighten lax muscles.
When Dr. Lyos performs this procedure for his male clients, he focuses on producing subtle, masculine outcomes. Through conservative adjustments, he strengthens the jawline, minimizes excess volume beneath the chin and sculpts a more defined look.
The minimally-invasive neck lift differs from the traditional approach in one major way. While the traditional, full neck lift involves removing unwanted fat, tightening lax muscles and removing excess skin, the minimally-invasive version does not address excess neck skin. Rather, it exclusively repositions and tightens the structures beneath the surface. As such, it tends to be ideal for patients who have early signs of neck aging.
You may be a candidate for a minimally-invasive neck lift if you:
Your minimally-invasive neck lift can be done under either local or general anesthesia. Because the procedure does not involve trimming away excess skin, it only requires a single, very small incision beneath the chin. Through that tiny opening, Dr. Lyos can reposition the underlying tissue and tighten and elevate lax muscles.
The results of your minimally-invasive neck lift should be extremely long-lasting. You will see a visible improvement in the contours of your neck and jawline as soon as post-surgical swelling subsides, with the full results becoming apparent within one month.
