Question : I’m debating between getting a neck lift alone and a full face and neck lift. My biggest concern is that I don’t want to look overdone. I’m 61 years old and I’ve aged fairly well but in the past few years I’ve developed jowls. How much improvement would I seen in a neck lift alone and would this help to maintain a natural appearance?
Answer : Depending on what the face is like, it may be a mistake just to rejuvenate the neck and not to rejuvenate the upper face where there may be a quite startling disconnect between a youthful-appearing neck and a not-as-youthful-appearing face. Therefore, you may need to get a full facelift which includes a neck lift after it. However, if you don’t really need a facelift and just want to see how the neck lift works, a neck lift may be very good for you if it gives a natural result for the improvement.
