Scar revision on the chin
I would suggest a combination of Ultherapy to the neck + surgical scar revision of the neck scar.
You have what we call platysma banding. The neck muscles have spread. You will benefit form resuturing the neck muscles together. The same scar for the chin implant can be used and can be revised at the same time. You will do well
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your photograph, you may
benefit from skin re-draping through a neck lift. If good technique is used,
this can be done with minimal scarring and can result in a natural look, not
over-done look, with rejuvenation of your face. Make sure you specifically look
at before and after pictures of real patients who have had this surgery
performed by your surgeon and evaluate their results. The most important aspect
is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
