One of the more serious signs of aging is a loss of volume and a sagging of the neck and face. While a face lift alone will give you a more youthful look, a complete transformation to a younger-looking you may require a neck lift as well. Understanding these two procedures and how they complement one another is important before making the decision to go ahead with one.
What is a Face Lift?
A face lift removes excess skin and tightens the face to give you a younger look. It may involve removal of loose skin around the cheeks, eyes, nose, and mouth. The skin is then tightened around the face to give you a more youthful look. Often, fine lines and wrinkles are eliminated in a face lift as the folds of the skin are removed and tightened.
What is a Neck Lift?
A neck lift is similar to a face lift, but involves removal of excess skin and tightening of the neck and chin. If you have a double chin, sagging under the chin on the neck, or have lost a lot of weight and have some flaps of skin left over on your upper neck, a neck lift can take years off your look.
Combining a Neck Lift and Face Lift
Sagging of the skin commonly occurs on both the face and the neck. Combining these two procedures will give you the best results. These two procedures can be done at the same time to lower recovery time. It is very common to have both of these procedures done, as well as dermal fillers, to give you a complete transformation.
