Tighten Up Your Jaw-Line with a Neck Lift

There are certain unavoidable truths about getting older. As we age the rate our body produces collagen slows. This means our skin loses its youthful firmness and elasticity, leading to lines, wrinkles and often sagging.

The physical signs of ageing vary from person to person however, and the way we age is often down to our individual genetic disposition. A good way to gauge what is in store for you is often to look at your mother and father.

If you notice your parents have developed ‘jowls’ or sagging skin around their neck and jawline as they’ve grown older, this could well happen to you too – but there are ways to correct the natural loss of elasticity.

Firstly, it’s important to note you can prevent premature signs of ageing by being diligent with your sunscreen. Apply at least SPF 30 every day and you’ll thank yourself ten years from now.

If you’re looking to tighten up your facial profile and jawline a Neck Lift is a very effective surgical solution.  The operation is often combined with a Face Lift for a complete anti-ageing procedure, though it can also be carried out on its own.

During the procedure the surgeon will make small incisions behind the ears, from here any excess skin will be removed before sutures are used to secure a firmer jawline. The operation can transform a patient’s facial profile and is a highly effective anti-ageing procedure, leaving patients looking refreshed and often giving them a fantastic confidence boost too.
