A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves the visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck region. This includes: excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face that creates jowls, excess fatty deposits under the chin, loose neck skin and muscle banding in the neck which has resulted in abnormal contours.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that can help to decrease sagging in the midface and lessen deep creases or wrinkles of the face. This procedure is designed to make you look younger. As a result you can look and feel better.
The loss of youthful contours in the face and neck can be due to a variety of factors including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress. When the region of the neck does not match the overall appearance of the face, a neck lift may be a good solution.
During the procedure, Dr. Villalobos often times makes an incision that begins in the hairline that continues down and around the ear. The tissue underlying the neck skin is then repositioned and tightened. During the initial consultation a thorough examination will take place and best possible treatment options will be discussed.
