Limiting the visible signs of ageing can now be achieved with a variety of aesthetic procedures and cosmetic medicine however one of the most effective surgical procedures sought after by patients globally is a face and neck lift. A face and next lift is a surgical procedure that goes some way towards effectively reversing the hands on the ageing clock.
This surgical procedure consists of tightening and smoothing the skin of your face and neck in the temporal, pre-aural, post-aural and occipital areas. Reducing wrinkles and improving loose, sagging skin, the operation comes in a variety of forms. It is performed either as full face lift, which involves the area below the eyes and neck; or as a mini face lift, involving the mid-face area while omitting the neck. If necessary it can be combined with eyelid surgery and a brow lift.
Patients should note that the neck can show age faster than the whole face; indeed, many times patients require only a neck lift, rather than a full face lift. Ageing does not always determine the need for a neck lift; factors such as considerable weight loss can also be responsible, and the occurrence can even be hereditary. Many patients choose to have a neck lift in combination with a face lift procedure.
