Neck Lift

Thanks for your question and photos. From your pictures it looks like you would be an excellent candidate for a neck lift. This would allow for the incisions to be placed behind the ear making the scar essentially inconspicuous. Your jawline is clean and mid face full so this would be the way to go. Best sure to seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your thoroughly and discuss all options available to you
