One of the earliest signs of aging is saggy skin in the neck area and neckbands, which usually makes patients consider a lower face and neck lift. If sagging skin is present in the neck, liposuction alone will not be beneficial. Patients with sagging tissues may benefit from a lift procedure. Sometimes a neck lift alone can be performed in certain patients. Other patients may qualify for a lower face and neck lift in order to give them a more natural appearance.
The procedure is a combination of liposuction of the neck and tightening of the neck muscles to rejuvenate the neck contour and improve the profile.
