Lower rhytidectomy, popularly known as neck lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure to create a more sculpted, youthful neck by providing a subtle lift to the sagging neck skin. At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will explain the pros and cons of the neck lift procedure, and may also present neck lift before and after photographs.

What are Neck Lift Before and After Images?
Before and after images in case of neck lift cosmetic surgery refer to a set of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same surgery with successful results. The set includes images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-op swelling and bruising has been completely resolved and full effects of neck lift are visible.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that the pictures are obtained with the patient’s complete consent and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as per the standard protocol. The surgeon’s only purpose behind this exercise is to use the before and after photos to describe the potential effectiveness of neck lift surgery to new patients.
When a new patient is considering neck lift surgery, they may only have a limited understanding of how the procedure can improve their neck and lower face profile, and whether it will meet their personal cosmetic goals. Some patients may require neck lift in conjunction with neck liposuction. Neck lift is also often performed together with facelift surgery for more harmonious results.
Therefore, the surgeon will discuss all treatment options with the patient and make the most appropriate recommendations. If the patient has access to neck lift before and after photos, they will be in a better position to make the right choices.
Most satisfying outcomes in any cosmetic procedure are usually achieved when the patient has clear aesthetic priorities, a positive mindset and reasonable expectations. Therefore, experienced surgeons prefer to show neck lift before and after photos at the very first appointment so that the patient can clearly understand what the procedure can or cannot do for them.
This mitigates the risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient at a later stage when it may be difficult to reverse the procedure.
