Question : I’ve always had a full lower face. I’m 44, male, and as I’ve gotten older my neck has become even less defined. This is all that I’m really concerned about so could a neck lift work for me or even just neck liposuction?
Answer : This may be of some benefit to you depending on your specific case. One important thing is that in some patients the position of the bone in the neck called the hyoid bone varies. Your result may depend on the location of this bone. If it is in a lower position, your neck may always look a little bit full even though you’re still youthful. In these cases, definitely some liposuction or some neck lifting may be of value, but you may not have as dramatic of a result as you wish. It’s important to discuss with your surgeon what the potential benefits of the procedure will be for you.
