A Neck Lift, sometimes called a “tuck”, can be done in various degrees from conservative to more complete depending on what your particular needs are. Even so, an aging neck can still be remarkably improved without undergoing a “huge” procedure. While I still perform the larger face and neck procedures, our goal is to help you reach your own personal face and neck goals with the least invasive procedures possible.
How do you know what procedure you may need to reach your goals?
That’s what you and Dr. Barnes will determine together in your private consultation or in your virtual consultation online with Dr. Barnes. Face or neck concerns and signs of aging of face and neck are very personal issues.
Dr. Barnes will carefully listen to your personal concerns and offer options to meet your own goals for face and/ or neck rejuvenation.
