What’s the difference between a neck lift and a mini neck lift

Have you noticed changes in your neck and jawline that are making you look old?  Gravity and a drop in collagen take a toll on the neck skin over time, causing it to sag and look full.    Fortunately, a neck lift or mini neck lift can combat sagging neck skin, and restore the youthful contours to the lower face.  

What’s the difference between a neck lift and a mini neck lift?

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift is a surgical procedure that is done to rejuvenate the appearance of the neck.  It eliminates excess skin and fat around the jawline and neck, and tightens loose neck muscles.  During a neck lift, the surgeon will remove unwanted fat under the chin, resulting in a well-defined jawline and contoured neck.  Recovery takes approximately 10-15 days. 

What is a mini neck lift?

A mini neck lift focuses on reducing skin laxity in the lower neck area.   During a mini neck lift, the surgeon will remove excess skin and tighten the deep tissue.   Recovery takes about 7-10 days, and results last up to 3 years.  The incision for a mini neck lift is made within the hairline behind and in front of the ear, so scars are well-concealed.  A mini neck lift is ideal for people that have excess skin on the neck but minimal fat, and are therefore not yet ready for a full neck lift. 

Which one is right for me?

Whether you need a neck lift or a mini neck lift will depend on your specific concerns and aesthetic goals.
