3D NECK REJUVENATION
A new procedure by
pioneering Facial Plastic Surgeon,
Dr. Steven Mobley.
Dr. Mobley has pioneered a new surgical procedure that can restore a more defined neck, chin and jawline. This procedure, called “3-D neck” was created in 2014 by Dr. Mobley and is an excellent procedure for patients typically between the ages of the early 20s to the mid 40s. As the popularity of this procedure has grown, Dr. Mobley has invented several proprietary surgical instruments specifically designed so that the entire operation can be performed through a small 1inch incision leading to a quicker recovery and almost no visible scar.
Convenient, safe & effective:
- Often ideal choice for patients typically under 45 years of age
- Ideal surgical procedure for both men and women seeking a more defined neck, chin and jawline
- Much smaller operation than a traditional neck lift performed through a one-inch incision hidden under the chin.
- Performed in our private OR with the comfort and safety of IV sedation.
- Selected patients may choose local anesthesia with mild oral sedative
In the de-bulking process, this is an advanced evolution of traditional neck liposuction. The difference from traditional neck liposuction is that very often in liposuction the surgeon simply pushes a thin metal cannula (rod) underneath the neck skin and the rod has little holes in it that suction the fat out of the neck and into the cannula. This technique is traditionally done by a sense of feel but the surgeon cannot actually visually see the fat that is removed or left behind. This can have limited accuracy since the surgeon is not directly visualizing the fat.
In 3-D neck rejuvenation, we always start off by doing traditional “closed” neck liposuction but then we transition to open liposuction. With open liposuction, we are directly looking at the fatty tissue that is in the underside of the chin and neck area. Under direct visualization, all through an incision approximately 1” wide with special retractors and high tech LED lighting, we can actually get the remainder of the fat off of the deeper neck muscle called the platysma (to be covered in the next section) so that we really get the best possible neck contour for the patient by combining both traditional closed liposuction but with the advanced technique now of open liposuction.
As we age, by no fault of our own, our neck begins to become loose around the area under the chin and down to the Adam’s apple area. This neck muscle is called the platysma muscle. Even if we maintain a healthy diet, a reasonable body weight, and stay active, the platysma muscle still begins to sag away from the structures of the neck and create bands or cords. The “sagginess” of the platysma muscle can show up at differently based on our age. Some younger patients in their 20s or 30s have noticed they never had a defined neck line. Many of these patients do have a naturally sagging/ loose platysma muscle. Other patients may not notice the platysma muscle at all until around the mid-40s when parts of the muscle will start to show through the skin as “bands” or “cords” that are visible in the neck. In various cases, it is this sagging, or loose, platysma muscle that can cause your neck to loose some of the definition in your profile view so that you no longer have a nice angle between the underside of your chin and the front part of your neck and windpipe area.
In 3-D neck rejuvenation, everything is done through a small 1” skin incision again, using high tech retractors and LED fiber optic lighting; we are able to have an amazing amount of visualization in this procedure. We can actually visualize the loose platysma muscle. The excess platysma muscle is brought to the center of the neck where the excess muscle is held in a special clamp developed by Dr. Mobley exclusively. The excess muscle is removed. Now the two ends of the platysma muscle are then sewn back together and the sewing of these ends together creates an attractive corset type effect that creates attractive definition from underneath the chin and down the front of the neck to the area of the Adam’s apple.
The final component to 3-D neck rejuvenation is to improve jawline definition. Dr. Mobley is a national teacher of cosmetic chin augmentation and so has developed many proprietary techniques unique to his practice. He is a pioneer in “custom carving” of cosmetic chin implants.
In 3-D neck rejuvenation, each chin implant is custom modified so that it is an exact cosmetic match to your particular jaw anatomy. For example, perhaps the very front part of your chin protrudes nicely but the sides of your jawline and chin area are “hollow”. Dr. Mobley will custom carve a chin implant exactly for your facial features that would give you little to no augmentation of your central chin; while at the same time giving you a nice amount of attractive volume along the lateral jaw line.
Each patient walks away from the procedure with a custom shaped chin implant that is an appropriate cosmetic balance to give you the most attractive jawline in balance with your face and body type. This is particularly important for female patients where we want to make the jawline strong but still keep it feminine. Custom chin carving of your implant will make sure that you have a well-defined jawline but at the same time, your jawline will still be feminine, sleek, and attractive.
