Question: I have too much skin in my neck that hides my chin. I would like a neck lift 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: Quite often neck lift incisions are made under the chin which cannot be seen. Occasionally neck lift incisions are made in other areas of the neck or the hairline area, but wherever the incisions are made they are placed so that the scars can be as well hidden as possible. Lax skin will be removed and it is important to also tighten underlying structures and remove any fatty tissue if necessary.
