Your body undergoes many changes throughout the years. As you get older, your muscles become loose. Gravity also acts as a stimulant that sags your muscles further. Your face and neck are the most delicate parts of your body, and yet the most susceptible to damage by pollution and sun exposure. This results in a sagging neck that makes you look older than you are.

Once your neck becomes loose, you cannot tighten it without the help of a cosmetic surgeon. A neck lift reinforces your muscles and excess fat or skin. In some cases, your jawline gets defined with the correction of jowls or the removal of a turkey wattle.

Even though it is common for surgeons to combine facelift and neck lift procedures, sometimes, you may see more pronounced results from a neck lift alone.
