  • Restore Your Youth With Plastic Surgery: What Facelifts and Necklifts Can Do For You


Overview: Time catches up with even the best of us, and as we get older our skin starts to lose its natural elasticity, causing wrinkles, sullen features and an overly tired look. It often seems like not much can be done about these unfortunate side effects of aging, but this is not the case! With plastic surgery procedures like Facelifts and Necklifts, you can slow down the effects of aging and restore your naturally youthful look. In this blog we'll discuss more about how Facelift and Necklift surgery can improve your appearance and who these procedures are ideal for.



How Do Facelifts and Necklifts Reduce The Effects of Aging?

Necklifts and Facelifts both work to smooth and tighten the skin in order to give you an appearance that is both more attractive and truer to yourself. What do each of these procedures do? Let's find out.


Facelift surgery is clinically known as a rhytidectomy and is a procedure that works to sculpt and tighten the skin and tissue in the facial area. Once the tightening is complete, any excess skin is removed and the incision areas are closed using either sutures or skin adhesives. The procedure helps alleviate the various effects that aging has on the skin, including the following:

  • Wrinkles and lines below the eyes
  • Facial creases, such as those around the nose and mouth
  • Facial sagging
  • Stubborn fatty deposits
  • Unnatural skin tone/jowls


Necklifts, clinically known as lower rhytidectomies, are a popular plastic surgery procedure that targets the lower face and neck areas to help reduce the effects of aging. Like Facelifts, Necklifts also sculpt and tighten the tissue but tghe procedure differs by targeting areas in your neck and around your jawline. The Necklift also targets slightly different imperfections, such as the following:

  • Loose or saggy neck skin
  • Unnatural looking neck features caused by muscle banding
  • Saggy skin and unwanted fat deposits in the lower facial area and jawline
  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin causing the appearance of a double chin

Who is The Ideal Candidate For a Facelift or Necklift?

Both Facelifts and Necklifts are best suited to older patients who are suffering from the effects of aging, such as wrinkles, facial creases and loose, saggy skin. If you are already considering a different facial rejuvenation procedure, such as a rhinoplasty, or blepharoplasty, a Facelift or Necklift could provide the perfect compliment to your new look.

Bottom Line: Both Facelifts and Necklifts are fantastic plastic surgery procedures that can provide exceptional results for individuals interested in fighting back against the effects of aging. Both procedures look to give the patient a more youthful look by tightening and smoothing skin and tissue, although each targets a slightly different area. Facelifts are concerned with reducing lines, wrinkles and fatty deposits in the cheeks, around the nose, mouth, and eyes, and in the forehead. On the other hand, Necklifts target the areas under the chin, the lower jawline, and the neck area as whole. Both procedures are ideally suited to an older individual looking to regain their natural look, and they can be the perfect compliment to other facial rejuvenation methods, such as nose surgery and eyelid surgery.
