Hi. I am 54 years old and would like a neck lift. My 56-year-old sister and I have the same wrinkled neck and she is interested in one as well. How long do the effects of the neck lift generally last? Does the tightened skin continue to wrinkle at the same rate?
Neck lift surgery has become one of my most frequently requested surgical procedures. I think that people are aware that an aging neck may be more visible than an aging face. Neck lift surgery will help reduce skin laxity and tighten the muscles of the neck to create a smooth natural neck contour. Unfortunately, the neck skin will continue to age at the same rate as the rest of the skin of the face and you will likely need a touch up procedure in about 10 years.
