The lower face and neck lift procedure can be extremely rewarding for the patient and the surgeon. Patients with redundant neck skin typically elevate their chin to prevent neck skin sagging which often corrects with a lower face and neck lift.
In patients who have undergone previous facelift surgery, the earlobes may be attached. In some patients we can detach the earlobes and re-create a more normal earlobe contour. Time is spent to conceal the incision in appropriate creases. The scars fade over the course of 1-2 years.
Hyperbaric oxygen prior to and after lower face and neck lift surgery can expedite recovery.
