Definition of the neck and jawline is an important feature — especially for men. Having a prominent chin and strong jawline are classically masculine elements of the face that add to your overall appearance.
Neck lift surgical details
When performing a neck lift for male patients, Dr. Hessler is particularly mindful to keep the masculine features in mind. The basics are the same with male and female neck lift surgery, but the differences that do exist must be considered and addressed, such as the prominence of the jawline and how the skin is draped over the Adam’s apple. Dr. Hessler is extremely detail-oriented, making her the ideal surgeon for this procedure. To tighten the neck skin, Dr. Hessler will make small incisions around the ear. Once the incisions are made, she will remove or re-position fat deposits, tighten the platysma muscles, and remove excess skin. The remaining skin is then re-draped over the raised contours, and the incisions will be closed. Surgical dressings will be applied to reduce swelling.
