The face lifting is one of the most common procedures when talking about a plastic surgery, growing up from it, we have now the mini lift, that does what a face lifting does, but is mini-invasive.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens skin and facial tissue. It involves removing excess skin, smoothing out superficial wrinkles, and tightening facial tissue.
A neck lift is done as part of a full facelift to reduce fat deposits and sagging skin on the neck to improve the visible signs of aging in both the jawline and neck.
The procedure consists of a small incision made in the front of the ear, through which the surgeon will lift the skin tissues to remove the extra skin, and then it gets overlaid, making the skin look rejuvenated.
The fat from the neck will also be sculpted to reposition the tissue underlying the neck. The incisions will be closed with sutures, and the results will start be seen once the swelling is gone.
After the procedure, the patient will be able to walk and get back home, the surgeon will recommend oral medication to fight the pain, and the use of ice compresses.
The results are seen in some weeks, after this time the patient will look 5 to 10 years younger, and this aspect will last for approximately 10 years.
