Face & Neck Lift Procedures

The loss of youthful contours in the face can be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental factors, dramatic weight loss and stress. You may wish to improve the appearance with a face or a neck lift.

When to Consider a Face Lift

A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the face and neck. You may consider a facelift when you notice changes in your appearance such as:

  • Fat that has fallen or has disappeared
  • Jowls or loss of skin tone in the lower face
  • A double chin, or loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw
  • Sagging in the middle of your face
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose and edge of the mouth

When to Consider a Neck Lift

Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper face is still pleasing, yet many will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a “turkey wattle” or double chin, and jowl lines. When the neck area doesn't match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck, such as:

  • Excess fat and relaxed skin in the lower face
  • Excess fat under the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Muscle banding or abnormal contours in the neck
