The aging process takes a drastic toll on the firm, tight, smooth skin of the neck area. As people age into their mid-40’s to 50’s, the neck begins to lose its youthful appearance. The jawline softens into loose hanging jowls, a double chin can appear, fine vertical lines transform into deep creases and folds, and fatty tissue deposits become prominent.
After making the decision to learn more about the various necklift methods and procedures, you will meet with our board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, Dr. Paul Nassif, for a consultation. During this meeting, you will be given the opportunity to thoroughly discuss your current situation and how you hope to improve the appearance of sagging neck skin and a droopy jawline.
Dr. Nassif must determine your candidacy for the necklift. For the procedure to be a success, he will perform a complete assessment of your overall health. He will need to check your vital signs and run a series of laboratory tests, involving blood work. Inform Dr. Nassif of any past medical or cosmetic procedures or surgeries you have had; this includes any past use of cosmetic fillers in your neck or lower face.
