Different anatomy can dictate which facelift technique is most suitable. In older female patients, the deep plane facelift will address the lower face, jawline, jowls, and neck and is often the appropriate procedure for this demographic. In younger female patients, a mini-facelift will address the mid-face where early signs of aging may have begun. A mini-facelift does not include the neck.
A neck lift in females is typically reserved for women looking to reshape an obtuse-shaped neck without the need to address their lower face.
An isolated neck lift alone is more commonly utilized in men who do not want or need their lower face addressed with surgery.
