Alloderm for neck defects after neck lift

by Bellevue | Seattle’s Dr. Philip Young | Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery:

This is a question that I answered for a patient who had a neck lift that was done by another surgeon. The patient felt he had a defect and lack of volume from getting too much liposuction with the neck lift. He was wondering if Alloderm would be a good option:

Alloderm can work but may not be long term result. Some studies show complete absorption of the Alloderm. Fat injections can be a great alternative. This would be also a less invasive alternative as well. The YoungVitalizer is our unique option for facial rejuvenation but this approach that we use can also be used for helping with neck defects as well.


Hope that helps!
