Face and Neck Lift
A lower face and neck lift is the most comprehensive approach to treating facial sagging caused by aging. A face and neck lift removes excess skin, tightens underlying tissues and muscle and redrapes skin on the face and neck. It can correct midface sagging, marionette lines, jowls and a double chin, maintaining its reputation as the ‘gold standard’ for facial rejuvenation.
The neck is one of the first places where we show our age. Fatty jowls, a “turkey wattle,” vertical banding and horizontal creases all work together to make us look older than we feel. A neck lift enhances the appearance of the neck by tightening the skin and underlying muscles and improving the contour of the jawline. This procedure is usually performed in conjunction a facelift, but may also be done as a stand-alone procedure.It is very common to also combine facial fat grafting to a face and neck lift.
As we age we lose volume in our face, facial fat grafting corrects that. Dr. Eberbach will harvest fat from a different part of the body then inject the fat in the areas of the face that are lacking. Common areas include the cheeks, under eyes and lips. Fat grafting can also be done as a stand alone procedure.
When to Consider a Facelift
- If you feel that your face does not reflect your youthful spirit and energy level.
- If you determine that your facial sagging and excess skin is a social or career obstacle.
- If you show signs of facial aging but still have some skin elasticity.
- One day you look in the mirror and realize that time, gravity, sun exposure and heredity have taken a toll and you simply do not look like yourself any more.
