Ultherapy or SMAS facelift
Ultheapy will not tighten as much as a facelift or necklift
A facelift alone will not be sufficient
Dear patient, Looking at the photos it struck me that you have a lot of actinic damage. Collagen denatures from sun, smoking, and stress. A facelift can stretch back relatively quickly if you don't address the sun damaged skin first. I suggest looking into an aggressive fractional Co2 laser resurfacing. I perform the Mixto CO2 laser and have really great and long lasting results with this modality. Once a laser procedure has been performed you may deiced to do an Ulterapy rather than a full neck lift. Ultherapy has little to no downtime and no risk of scarring. Ulterapy results are not as impressive as a surgical lift but may be sufficient in your case. I hope this was helpful.
