A taut, youthful appearance is something everyone strives for. Everyone wants to stop aging in their tracks so that they can retain those amazing features they had as children. A chiseled and contoured face and jawline is a sign of youth, and everyone strives for it. Who can stop time and aging?
The neck is among the first parts of the body to show signs of aging. Due to the thin skin of the neck, wrinkles are more noticeable. It becomes unattractive when the skin of the neck begins to sag and droop.
Neck Lift surgery, also termed neck plastic surgery, is executed in tandem with the conventional facelift or may be executed in isolation. A facelift will also produce a lift and an improvement in the contour of the neck.
Additional procedures can also be performed on the neck to enhance the lifting produced by a facelift (e.g. a posterior cervicoplasty) at the time of the facelift procedure. It is also possible for an isolated lift to be performed on the neck without a facelift.

If you maintain good health, you can anticipate your neck lift lasting between 10 and 15 years. Results will last much longer if you choose to have this procedure in your early 40s to address issues with the muscle structure in your neck than if you wait until you are in your 60s to address loose, sagging skin.
