Same as a face lift: You may get other opinions, but in my mind there is really no such thing as an isolated neck lift. A facelift will rejuvenate the face from the lower eyelids to the base of the neck, and often the most beneficial effects are seen in the neck and along the jawline. Excess skin must be removed in an inconspicuous area, and this is why the incisions are around the ears, no matter what is "lifted.". ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers

Luck has no role, but experience does. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Can i request dissolvable stitches to suture a neck lift? I am so worried about stitches being removed after a neck lift. Can i request that they use dissolvable ones?
While : While dissolvable sutures may be used to close the skin after a neck lift, it is important to remember that they are dissolved via the process of inflammation, which can result in increased scarring and pigmentation. Polypropylene sutures slide very easily during removal and cause minimal reaction. If you really insist on dissolvable sutures, fine catgut, or fast-absorbing chromic sutures would be best. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

You need a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. http://www.dassmd.com/neck-lift-beverly-hills.html. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
