The neck can begin to show age faster than whole face and many times patients only need a neck lift, rather than a full face lift. Aging does not always determine the need for a neck lift, but rather having lost considerable weight or it may even be hereditary. Many patients choose to have a neck lift with their face lift procedure. Neck lift is a surgery designed to reduce the loose look of sagging skin in the neck area and under the jaw line. Neck lift is an operation that usually takes 2 hours to complete using a general anaesthetic and normally includes an overnight stay at the hospital. Your expectations need to be realistic.
