Am I A Good Candidate?
If you are a male or female in your 40s to 50s and are beginning to notice a neck “waddle” of excess loose skin, then a mini neck lift is geared towards you. The best candidates are non-smokers who are in generally good health and have reasonable expectations for the procedure’s outcome.
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
The mini neck lift is typically done as an outpatient treatment. It lasts approximately 90 minutes and is performed with local and/or sedation. In fact, patients can opt to use a new type of sedation option called Pronox, which is a patient-controlled inhaled analgesia that takes effect in seconds and immediately relieves anxiety and helps with discomfort. During the treatment, the skin and muscle will be pulled up and tightened, leaving a younger, tighter looking neck and jawline.
What Results Will I See?
Impressively, the results of the mini neck lift are immediate. Following the procedure, you will notice the improvements in your jawline, and neck right away. While you may have some swelling or slight bruising, this will subside within the first several days and will give way to a fresher, younger appearance. The mini neck lift will last 5 to 7 years, but your neck will also continue to be affected by aging, environmental factors, and gravity.
