The area from the gonion to the neck is called ‘jowl’ and normally creates an angle close to 90 degrees. Congenital or acquired fat accumulation may occur in this area, while loosening and sagging may occur in the skin and subcutaneous muscles.
- If fat accumulation is prominent in these regions of young and tight-skinned patients, a liposuction (fat removal) procedure can be carried out under local anesthesia by using a cannula of only 2 mm. The patient can go home the same day.
- If there is an excess fat accumulation under the neck muscles, the fat tissues are surgically removed through an incision of about 3 cm made under the chin. At the same time, if there is a looseness and displacement in the neck muscles, they are corrected as well.
- In middle aged people, sagging in the facial skin and soft tissue are generally accompanied by sagging in the neck skin. In such cases, neck lift and face lift operations are done at the same time.
- If the sagging in the neck and face are not too advanced, liposuction is performed on the neck when carrying out the mini face lift procedure.
