Cervico-facial lifts can be performed as soon as signs of ageing appear, generally from 40 or 45 years onwards.
The cervico-facial lift is the most frequently performed lift. It tightens the skin of the lower face: cheeks, facial contour (jowls) and neck. It is often combined with fat transfer and with eyelid surgery.
It can also be combined with other lifts (frontal, temporal and malar)
It is relatively minor plastic surgery and painless. The result is always very effective. Around two weeks off work is required and those around you will not realise what has actually taken place.
Here is an example of the result of a cheekbone, cheek, facial contour and neck lift. This woman looks 10 years younger because the skin is tightened. Note that the neck is smoothed out right the way down, towards the collarbone. The appearance is natural. The scars are invisible. This lift will be effective for a very long time as the procedure tightens the skin and the ageing process will then be slowed.
