Restoring the neck contour.


To restore neck contour, we do not favor the following procedures: Submandibular gland resections: Operations on the submandibular gland may yield severe complications, and the benefits are not worth the risk. Digastric muscle operations: We see no advantages to operations on the digastric muscles. They are masticatory muscles. To provide the best outcome for the patient, the surgeon must respect the complexity and variance of neck defects, the limitations of each case, and the surgeon’s own limitations.
