Facelift, Neck Lift, & Brow Lift Questions

Q: Do I need a neck lift for my loose skin?

A: A neck lift is the best procedure for improving the natural beauty of the neck by correcting loose skin and excess fat. Most people will notice loose skin when they turn their neck or chin in certain directions. If your neckline looks contoured in its normal position, you probably won’t benefit from a neck lift.

There is no ideal age for neck procedures. As long as you are a good candidate, your age can range from early 20s to the elderly. To find out if you are a good candidate, speak with an experienced facial plastic surgeon in Manhattan or New York City.

Q: Can I have a facelift at the age of 76?

A: A facelift is designed to improve signs of aging by correcting lax facial and neck skin, as well as removing excess fatty tissue from beneath the chin and jaw. The aesthetic results typically last 5-10 years, depending on the level of care you provide for yourself and your lifestyle.

A facelift doesn’t stop aging however; your appearance will remain better than if you had never had the procedure. What’s more important than age when it comes to having a face lift is your health. If you can safely tolerate anesthesia, then why shouldn’t you feel better about the appearance of your face and neck? It’s important to participate in a consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon in New York who can address your concerns and identify if the addition of another procedure is necessary. If you have an above average amount of wrinkles laser resurfacing may be added at the same time to improve your results.

Q: What do you do when a brow lift or facelift begins to sag?

A: The results of brow lift and facelift procedures usually last 5-10 years. The range reflects how differing levels of care and overall health affect how long the results last. Smoking, sunbathing constant weight fluctuations shorten the longevity of the pleasing aesthetic results face lift patients are initially left with. As time passes, you won’t begin to look “weird” as the goal of a good plastic surgeon is to give you a natural, rejuvenated appearance. Certain techniques such as a more vertical lift to tissues instead of a posterior pull allow for a pleasant aging process.
