Who is a good candidate for neck lift surgery?
In general, good candidates for a neck lift include:
- Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that impair healing
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations
Some people feel they are not ready for a full facelift because the upper face is still pleasing. However, many patients will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a double chin or "turkey wattle" and jowl lines.
When the neck area doesn't match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution.
