As the years go by, it’s fairly common to start seeing the passage of time reflected in your appearance, specifically around the neck and jawline areas. And while the neck lift has traditionally been a popular surgical procedure for its ability to refresh and rejuvenate this area, it also tends to come with a prolonged recovery period and downtime (as so many invasive surgical procedures do).

If you’ve been looking for a great way to refresh your neck and jawline areas but aren’t interested in a full-on neck lift, Dr. Rana’s signature Rapid Recovery R2 Mini Neck Lift might be the perfect solution for you.

What Sets the R2 Mini Neck Lift Apart?

The primary difference between the traditional necklift and R2 mini necklift is Dr. Rana’s signature technique. He utilizes a technique that harmonizes the effects of a traditional necklift where the deep muscles of the neck are lifted and tightened (platysmaplasty) combined with the finesse of making smaller, minimally invasive incisions. Most patients can return back to their social lives typically in 5-7 days, making the R2 mini neck lift perfect for those with buys schedules and lives.

Utilizing smaller incisions not only means a reduction in the amount of scarring you’ll experience after your procedure, but it also significantly shortens the recovery time you’ll need to deal with, as well. Most patients can return to their social lives within a week, making the R2 Mini Neck Lift perfect for those with busy schedules and full lives.

Overview of a Rapid Recovery R2 Mini Neck Lift

Dr Rana will typically create an incision behind each ear near the earlobe to gain access to the neck tissues. Below the skin, the platysma, or muscle band, found in both sides of the neck can be surgically tightened. The restructuring can include surgical cuts to this fibrous sheet, or an elevation of the tissue, leaving it fully intact.

It is not uncommon to combine liposuction to sculpt the fat of the jawline (jowls) and neck. This is completed by an incision below the chin, where a small cannula can access the adipose tissue to perform lipo-sculpting.

"Dr. Rana is one of the most caring surgeons I have ever had the good fortune to have. I was injured on active duty and I have had 11 previous surgeries. The surgery he performed (a facelift and neck lift) was the best I have ever experienced. The pain was very minimal, the healing time was short and the result was nothing short of amazing. He did an amazing job, repairing a surgery that I had on active duty that did not go well. I am a different person due to Dr. Rana‘s excellent skills as a surgeon as well as his plethora of compassion and empathy. I highly recommend him to anyone. His skills are unmatched!"

The staff is excellent as well and made my entire experience wonderful. I am thrilled with my results more and more every day! "
