Q) If a neck lift is performed along with a chin implant, what would be the benefit?
A) The incision for the neck lift is in the same position for a chin implant so it’s easy to use the same incision on both procedures. The neck lift can be performed using an endoscopic method which is less invasive than other techniques requiring neck and chin incisions to manipulate the neck muscles. The type of technique is based on the problem and what is most appropriate. Endoscopic procedures are used when very minimal changes are needed and this works well. A more traditional procedure may be used if more work is needed to bring the neck to the upper position.
