Changes Desired

What Do You Want To Change?

It is important that you have a clear idea of what you want changed when you go for consultation. The last question a plastic surgeon wants to hear is: "What do you think I need done"?

Before consulting with a plastic surgeon about having a neck lift, look in a mirror and identify what bothers you. Be specific. It is helpful to break up the neck region into three parts.

  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Jaw

Evaluate each one of these areas individually as this is what the plastic surgeon does during his exam.

Common complaints

  • Chin: Too small, too droopy (witch's chin).
  • Neck: Loose skin, too much fat, neck platysmal bands (turkey neck).
  • Jaw: Jowling.
