Neck lift

Neck lift - What it is

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the lower face, jawline and neck. Signs of aging addressed include: 
  • Excess fat and skin in the lower face and chin resulting in a double chin
  • Loose, saggy neck skin
  • Abnormal muscle bands in the neck
This can be performed as a standalone procedure, or in conjunction with a facelift, which addresses the upper and midface.

What a neck lift cannot do

A neck lift cannot change your fundamental appearance and cannot stop the aging process. A neck lift can only be performed surgically; non-surgical rejuvenation treatments cannot achieve the same lasting results, but may help delay the time at which a neck lift becomes appropriate and complement the results of surgery.
