Age or weight loss can cause sagging or drooping in the neck, often before similar changes are seen in the face. Loose muscles in particular can create an appearance of dropping or bands on the neck. In a neck lift, the skin on the neck is smoothed and tightened to recapture a more youthful look. Patients often see a dramatic improvement to the neck with subtle changes to the overall appearance – others will notice you look younger without realizing you’ve had any procedures at all! This procedure can be paired with a face lift or performed alone.
