Neck Lift is a procedure that surgically pulls back and tightens the skin on the neck to give it a youthful appearance. It is often performed in combination with a facelift although it can be performed on its own too. A neck lift surgery can eliminate band lines, excess skin, and fat to bring your neck back into shape.
One of the first regions to depict the signs of aging is the neck. Since neck skin is soft, it loses its elasticity sooner than the rest of the body and can make a person appear old, tired and worn out. One of the most popular procedures is neck lift in Dubai that can solve such problems. Visit the Cost page to know the exact cost of the treatment.
