My chin is weak and makes my neck look larger than it should. Would a chin implant bring enough definition to my face, or should I also have a neck lift?
In most cases a neck lift is included in the procedure to improve the neck even with a chin implant. In some cases though, a chin implant will provide improvement without the neck lift. The only way to adequately answer the question would be to have a consultation, but I would prepare for a chin implant and a neck lift. The neck lift would probably be as simple as a little lipo-suction and plastymaplasty (binding the thin sheet of muscle in the neck together), but may involve a more significant lift depending on the laxity of the skin and patient age.
