A neck lift can result in a more defined, slender neck and jawline, but the procedure may not be for everyone. It's important when undergoing any type of surgical procedure that you're in good health.
If you're age 40 and above, then you may want to consider a neck lift if you're unhappy with any of the following conditions;
+ Loose or drooping skin + Excess skin + Skin damaged by sun and the elements + Excess fat on the neck obscuring the usual sharp angle between the chin and the neck + Double chin + Jowls or hanging skin at the neckline and jawline + Neck banding
If you are under 40 years of age, it might be better to consider a non surgical alternative such as botox, fillers or Ultherapy.
The best candidates for a neck lift will have:
+ Good skin elasticity – ideally the stretched skin remains elastic and will conform to its new position + Good physical health – generally being healthy is important before any surgery. Serious medical conditions, a high BMI and smoking can all increase the risk of complications. You should have stopped smoking at least 6 weeks before surgery.
