Procedures Performed – Facelift:
With the rise in popularity of weight loss surgery, we have seen an increase in patients left with excessive neck skin which cannot typically tighten up on it’s own. In this woman’s case, a lower facelift and neck lift left her looking much more youthful and removed any remaining evidence of significant weight loss.
The neck lift component of the procedure serves to tighten the muscles in the neck. The aging process often leads to the formation of neck “banding” which reflects the loosening of the neck muscles. In this case, the patient’s significant weight loss made banding look even more extreme. The neck lift—which is often performed in conjunction with a lower facelift—allowed this lady to recapture the neckline of her youth.
