The scar and tissues under your chin look inflamed and scarred. At this point it may be better to let the tissues soften before considering additional surgery. You may also benefit from fat transfer to soften things and correct the contour irregularities.
I think it looks like there may be some firmness or hardness there and this may be soem scar tissue so one consideration would be to ask your surgeon about some ultrasound to help soften the tissues.Heat and massage are also helpful.
Thank you for your question about your face lift.
I am truly sorry you have had to go through this.
- This is a challenging problem.
- Your photo suggests you will need additional surgery.
- Fat transplants will be less invasive and should be tried.
- They are a form of surgery but your tissues will not be cut.
- But the photo suggests that a careful and exensive re-do neck lift may be needed.
- If in doubt, seek a second opinion from another Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
- Sometimes an exam leads to suggestions that a photo does not.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
This is a difficult problem to correct. However, you may be able to significantly improve this with autologous fat transfer to the neck to restore volume and contour that appears to be missing by your photo. However, this is a surgical procedure. You should consult with an American Board of Plastic Surgery certified plastic surgeon in your area with experience in fat grafting to get their opinion.
I agree with your surgeon that the best way is to reelevate the skin of your neck to eliminate the deep wrinkles and irregularities. Any other modalities will only injure your skin further.
