A neck lift helps reduce visible signs of aging on the jaw line and neck, as well as diminish the appearance caused by various other factors.
A lower face lift can reduce the visible signs of aging in both the jawline and neck area. Additionally, this procedure helps to diminish the effects of gravity, sun damage, smoking, and stress on one's countenance.
In addition to a neck lift, other anti-aging procedures include eyebrow elevation, eyelid enhancement, fat grafting and fixing downturned or furrowed brows.
Neck lift surgery can be performed with either general or local anesthesia. When general anesthesia is used, the patient is kept asleep and at ease throughout the process, involving tightening of the neck muscles, removal of excess skin and fat, and closure of incisions. On the other hand, local anesthesia keeps the patient conscious but relaxed as small incisions are made around the ear, behind and beneath the chin.
Non-surgical rejuvenation treatments are an alternative to neck lift surgery, providing less dramatic effects but increasing the duration of the results when used in tandem with the procedure.
