What is Neck Lift Surgery?
The neck is often as important to a youthful appearance as the face is, and the two can sometimes seem to age at different rates. A Neck Lift for men will rid you of sagging skin which can cause a 'jowly' appearance around the neck and jaw area. A youthful appearance will be restored.
A Neck Lift involves the surgical removal of excess facial skin and can be carried out either by keyhole surgery or an incision. The Consultant Surgeon removes excess skin on the neck to provide a firmer, more youthful appearance. The Consultant Surgeon will assess the best method for you and discuss it with you during your consultation.
What results can I expect?
