What’s the best indication for a necklift?
A necklift is performed to tighten neck skin only. A neck lift without a facelift is uncommon since, in most cases, it is impossible to remove neck skin without leaving redundant cheek and face skin. A neck lift as part of a full facelift involves tightening the muscle and skin. Prior to undergoing a necklift without a facelift, we strongly recommend a second opinion to see if two surgeons agree that you will not be left with an unsatisfactory result from redundant face and cheek skin. Best to do it right the first time.
