When you begin to notice signs of significant wrinkles, creases and sagging skin in your face and neck, you might consider getting a facelift or neck lift to help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
If you’re considering either one or both of these procedures, your first step is to schedule a consultation. Not sure what to ask? These top face and neck lift questions are a good place to start.
What’s the Difference between a Face a Neck Lift?
Facelifts and neck lifts can be combined if you are looking to address your mid and lower face, as well as your neck at the same time.
The main difference between a facelift and a neck lift is the areas that they address. While a facelift can help to tighten loose skin and wrinkles in your mid-face area down to your lower face, a neck lift typically starts at the lower face, addressing jowls and sagging skin from the jawline down to the neck.
Who’s a Good Candidate for a Face or Neck Lift?
Good candidates for any cosmetic surgery should be in good physical health and understand the limitations of the surgery. For instance, a facelift can help you look years younger, but it is not going to make a 60-year-old look like their 20-year-old self again.
On the other hand, if you do not see significant sagging skin, wrinkles, creasing, jowls and other common cosmetic issues related to aging, you will likely do best with nonsurgical options such as hyaluronic acid fillers and/or BOTOX®.
When Will I See My Full Results?
Your results will continue to develop over the next several months after your procedure. It’s not uncommon to still see improvements up until 12 months after a face or neck lift.
