Do I need a facelift or a necklift?
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
Adult men and women of the Toronto, ON area who are struggling with the signs of aging on the face and neck may be unaware of the surgical procedures that can assist in turning back the hands of time. With gravity, time, and genetics, many men and women experience skin laxity that can contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. The face and neck are the first to show signs of aging, and can be addressed with surgical interventions. Dr. Dimitrios Motakis offers several facial enhancement procedures, including the facelift and neck lift. But which one is right for you?
The facelift procedure is done with an incision made within the hair line. By cutting the skin in this area and using this area to tighten the facial skin, scarring is disguised and not easily seen after the procedure. The facelift is best used to eliminate the excess skin and fat in the middle and lower parts of the face. It can improve the appearance and firmness of the cheeks, jawline, and mouth, and reduces wrinkles and sagging skin in these areas as well. The facelift provides a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance, making it a good option for many patients with moderate to severe skin laxity and line formation.
The neck lift
On the other hand, the neck lift is used to address excess skin and fat that develops under the jaw and jowls. This can tighten the neck and the neck muscles to reduce any sagging that may occur beneath the chin area. The neck lift effectively corrects the “turkey waddle” that can appear, as well as the appearance of a double chin due to fat accumulation. Overall, the neck lift is best used to produce a smoother, tighter, and more youthful neckline.
