The Basics

A neck lift is an ideal option for individuals seeking to improve the definition of their jawline and neck. The procedure involves making incisions around the ears or under the chin, through which excess skin and fat are removed, and the underlying tissues are tightened. By lifting and recontouring the neck, the surgery creates a more defined and youthful jawline, enhancing facial symmetry and structure. This can significantly boost confidence and reduce the appearance of sagging or drooping in the lower face and neck.

Who is a good candidate?

Ideal candidates for a neck lift are those who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery. They should be free from serious medical conditions that could complicate surgical recovery and understand that while a neck lift can create significant improvement, it is not a permanent solution to the aging process. These candidates are willing to follow post-operative care instructions and recognize that while the surgery can enhance the appearance of their neck and jawline, achieving natural-looking results requires a thorough consultation and careful planning with a qualified surgeon.
