A facelift is an operation performed to improve your face and neck to a natural, more youthful looking state. The procedure is best suited to treating the lower half of the face. It addresses the deepening folds running from the corner of your nose to your mouth (the nasolabial folds), sagging jowls, wrinkles and a sagging neck.
A neck lift is a similar procedure but the scars are shorter and located behind the ear and under the chin. In extreme cases a scar can be placed directly over the loose skin in the chin area. The neck lift only addresses the neck itself and not the soft tissues of the lower face.
