About 68% of people are unsatisfied with the appearance of their neck and the area beneath their chin, but they want to avoid invasive surgery. At Dr. Malouf Dermatology in Fort Worth, Dallas, and Cleburne Texas, the skilled dermatology specialists offer a simple solution for loose skin associated with what’s commonly called a “turkey wattle.” Call the office to schedule a mini necklift consultation or use the online booking feature today.
A mini necklift is similar to a traditional necklift but offers a short recovery, reduced scarring, smaller incisions, and less bruising and swelling.
No general anesthetic is needed. It’s less invasive, more cost-effective, and a perfect solution for patients seeking faster recoveries with minimal scarring. The results are natural-looking, offering a younger look without the invasive procedures.
Your surgeon reshapes your chin and neck, making these areas slimmer, well-defined, toned, and less wrinkled.
Your specialist examines your neck, chin, and tissues underneath the chin to determine if you’re a candidate for a mini necklift at Dr. Malouf Dermatology. They review your medical history, ask about your desired results, and customize a necklift just for you.
Follow your surgeon’s instructions before undergoing a necklift. They might ask you to stop taking specific medicines or arrange for a family member or friend to drive you to and from the procedure. However, unlike invasive cosmetic surgeries, you likely don’t need to avoid foods and drinks.
Before a mini necklift, the Dr. Malouf Dermatology team numbs the treatment area. They offer you a sedative to help you relax. Your specialist makes a tiny incision and uses liposuction to suck fat out of the jowls, cheeks, chin, or several areas of your face and neck.
They tighten the remaining tissues and close the incisions. The procedure usually takes 1-3 hours, depending on the amount of excess fat cells in your face and neck.
After a mini necklift, you can expect some swelling and bruising. These should go away in a few days, but the slimming results are immediate.
You should consider taking a week off to recover from the mini necklift. Take it easy and avoid heavy activity until given permission by your surgeon. Over time, you can expect a slimmer, tighter, more toned neck and face that lasts for many years.
