Facelifts are a great option for patients with significant jowls and neck issues. To improve the skin and restore facial volume, lasers and fillers are also great alternatives. To improve the jawline and reduce excess neck skin, facelifts give noticeably natural-looking results. There are very few alternatives to a facelift to dramatically correct loose neck skin and muscle. However, the disadvantages to a facelift should be carefully considered.
The facelift is a surgical procedure that requires incisions and recovery. Facial plastic surgeons are well trained to deliver the best possible results. Always review the before and after pictures of your surgeons work. Speak with other patients who have had facelifts. It is extremely important to make sure you are completely comfortable with the surgeon who will be performing your facelift.
