Facelift and Neck Lift
Aging can cause the skin around the face and neck to sag. Sun exposure and the stresses of daily life can take a toll, causing facial wrinkles and fat deposits in the neck. A facelift and neck lift can tighten sagging skin to help you look and feel younger. These two procedures are often done together to help perform a uniform look for enhancing your appearance.
Types of Facelifts
There is a wide range of facelift techniques that plastic surgeons employ to enhance your appearance. A deep plane facelift delivers long-lasting and dramatic results by tightening and elevating deeper facial structures. A mini facelift delivers greater definition to the jawline. A skin-only facelift fights early signs of aging without repositioning facial tissues. The type of facelift used depends on the individual’s needs.
Facelift and Neck Lift Procedure
A facelift and neck lift are outpatient cosmetic procedures performed using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. During either procedure, the surgeon can elevate sagging tissues, remove fat pockets and tighten muscles. The recovery period varies, depending on the work performed. A facelift and neck lift can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance your appearance.
The surgery can take several hours to complete, contingent on the extent of work being done. You may be able to resume normal activities within three weeks. Scarring is minimal and mostly hidden by your hairline. The results of a facelift and neck lift can last up to 10 years.
