What is a neck lift?

Your neck can be a dead giveaway with regard to your age. With time, the skin on your neck can lose elasticity and begin to sag and droop, along with the unwelcome development of fat tissue build-up, which is not the most appealing.

Here are a few ways in which a neck lift can have a serious effect on one's appearance:

  • Smooth out fine lines, wrinkles, and neckbands
  • Revive tine and volume to reveal a cleaner, more fluid silhouette
  • Lift and tighten drooping skin
