I have a wrinkled neck with folds of loose skin. I think a neck lift would help me tremendously. Where are the incisions located for this? How long does complete recovery take? I am 61 and in excellent health.

Based on your description of wrinkled neck skin with folds and loose skin, I agree that a necklift might be a good option for you. The incisions are located behind the ear. Occasionally, I place another incision underneath the chin to address muscle bands, excess skin, and/or excess fat in underneath the chin. It takes approximately 1-2 weeks for bruising and swelling to resolve.
