Am I a suitable candidate for a Neck Lift?
For many people, the neck is the first area to show age. If you have loose-hanging skin that has lost its elasticity creating band lines, excess skin, or fat, a neck lift can help to improve your appearance, bringing your neck back into shape.
Whether you are a suitable candidate for a neck lift is a question that can only be answered after a full consultation with your plastic or reconstructive surgeon. Determining factors are your age and health.
In general, the best candidates for neck lift surgery are people who are:
- In good physical health.
- Psychologically stable.
- Wanting to improve their appearance.
- Realistic in their expectations.
Can men have a neck lift?
Yes. This procedure is available to men or women.
