The best way to rejuvenate the neck is with a face lift. In some people only the neck may need rejuvenation, but to achieve the best result and improve the jaw line, frequently the cheek needs to be addressed as well. As one ages there are many changes that the face undergoes. The skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Areas of fullness such as the cheek begin to fall which causes jowls, deep creases near the mouth, and loose skin. In addition, the structures deep to the skin also fall including the muscles and fatty tissues.
A true facelift involves resuspending these tissues back into their more youthful position. The keyword there is resuspension. Unfortunately, everyone has seen the "wind blown" or "operated" look which is created by "pulling" the face. Gravity did not pull the face forward, it pulled it downwards. Dr. Guy creates a natural, rejuvenated look by resuspending the tissues into their more youthful position.
A face and neck lift address the "sags and bags," but it does not address the fine wrinkles. This is accomplished with a skin resurfacing procedure. It also does not rejuvenate the eyes as this is improved with a blepharoplasty. There are various approaches and incisions to rejuvenating the face. Some of these have been marketed better than others and includes names such as the mini lift, the mommy lift, the lifestyle lift, and the short scar lift. These are variations of the more traditional lifts. Dr. Guy has been trained extensively in the various surgical approaches for rejuvenating the face to give you the best aesthetic outcome which can be discussed with Dr. Guy in consultation.
