Neck Sagging 5 Years After Neck Lift
On average the surgical #results last between 4 and 7 years. However, people vary so much from one another, an exact time is difficult to provide. If you wish, you may repeat the procedure at that time. There is always an improvement compared to not having the procedure as the #aging process continues to progress throughout the future. Patients, with very loose skin will occasionally experience sagging earlier and it may be seen as soon as one year later. Such may require a secondary procedure to tighten the loose skin. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in #neck lift procedures is important to ensure you are receiving the best advice, care, and surgical experience possible.
Neck Lifts Last About Five Years; Facelifts Last 10
It is not unusual to find noticeable sagging in the neck five years after a neck lift. Each patient responds differently. Longevity also depends on how vigilant they are about subsequent sun avoidance and protection. The sagging, therefore, may or may not be related to Ehlers Danos, and could be a manifestation of continued aging.

According to age the neck lift which deals only with skin does not last more than few years.SMAS face lifting lasts little more but involves all the face. It is not exempt of complications.I developed a technique without undermining and skin excision which deals only to the lift of Platysma muscle disconnected from the SMAS.The Pinch Neck Lift is a microsurgery, using a small incision behind the ear and very little damage to the tissues, so side effects are rare and the downtime very minimal.
The majority of ageing problems associated with the lower face and the upper neck area can be solved with the Pinch Neck Lift and lower face FAMI.
