Facelift and necklift are aesthetic procedures reducing the aging signs to a great extent. Hence, they are frequently chosen by our middle-aged or elderly patients, both men, and women. The procedures may be performed separately, but many a time patients combine facelift with neck lift, which enhances the final effect.

Both facelift and necklift eliminate sagging skin

The two procedures are very similar in many aspects. They reduce the signs of aging, eliminate sagging skin and tighten the muscles bringing back the skin elasticity. As a result, your face and neck may look even 10 years younger, the fat amount is normally distributed and wrinkles are hardly visible and your neck and face look refreshed, youthful and attractive.

Regardless of the fact whether you have only facelift or necklift, or you have a combination of these two surgeries, you would be bruised and swollen for several days and need some rest after the surgery. It is advisable that it is not earlier than 2 weeks before you return to work. Nonetheless, just a necklift surgery has the fastest recovery process from all plastic surgeries.
