Question: I am 53 and have some mild sagging in my neck and along my lower jowls. I am looking for a minimally invasive surgery without the extensive anesthesia and long recovery of a facelift. Is there an option that could meet my lifestyle needs?
Answer: I perform a minimal invasive surgical procedure that involves transecting the vertical neck muscle bands, lifting sagging muscle and tissues and tightening the overlying skin. This minimally invasive procedure typically takes an hour and a half, is performed using straight local anesthesia and does not require long incisions.
