Patient Info

Dr. Inessa Fishman


This 54-year-old woman was bothered by a lack of definition at her jawline and unwanted fulness under her chin.  Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with an isolated deep plane neck lift, which is a surgical procedure to contour the jawline and neck and remove too-low and too-large parts of fat pads, muscles and salivary glands under the jawline.  Dr. Fishman also placed a small chin implant to give the patient’s chin more definition and projection.  The entire surgery was done in our office, with the patient awake and relaxed with by-mouth medications and laughing gas.  The patient’s only scar is hidden in the natural crease under her chin.  She is shown 1.5 months out from treatment.
