Neck Lift

As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life begin to take their toll on the neck. Deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline grows slack and jowly; folds, loose skin and fat deposits appear around the neck. The neck can begin to show age faster than whole face and many times patients only need a neck lift, rather than a full face lift. Aging does not always determine the need for a neck lift, but rather having lost considerable weight or it may even be hereditary. Many patients choose to have a neck lift with their face lift procedure.

Neck Lift is a surgery designed to reduce the loose look of sagging skin in the neck area and under the jaw. Neck Lift is an operation that usually takes 2 hours to complete using a general anaesthetic and normally includes an overnight stay at the hospital.

Your expectations need to be realistic. Most patients are pleased with the outcome and find they gain a feeling of increased self-confidence. The overall achievement will be having a completely natural look that gives the impressions that you have lost weight and/or look younger.
