The genetic reality is that some people have more chins than Elvis has platinum records. If, thanks to your ancestors, you store fat in your neck even when the rest of your body is as sleek as a jaguar, then you can have the walrus rings removed from your neck. To tighten the skin on your face, the surgeon will make cuts that run inside your hairline at the sides of your forehead, run parallel with your hairline down your temples, emerge from your hair just above your ears, then go in front of your ears, under your lobes and up into the hair behind your ears. The surgeon can also make a cut under the chin to work on your neck.
To tighten the skin, your skin is separated from the tissue and muscle below it (in most cases, those get tightened, too). Then the surgeon can remove excess fat in your face with liposuction, pull your facial skin up and back, trim off the excess and then stitch it back to the line where the cut was initially made. If your hair is nice and full and you have a good surgeon, it will be hard to see the scar on this one (unlike the tummy tuck).
