Combining Facelift and Neck Lift Surgery

As we age wrinkles appear and we lose elasticity in the skin. For many, the effects of aging are most obviously on the face and around the neck, making them appear tired, drawn, and perhaps even sad or angry. 

Patients looking to counteract the effects of aging may choose to undergo a combination facelift and neck lift surgery to turn back the hands of time and reinstate a more youthful facial appearance. If you are wondering if a face and neck lift combination is the answer you are looking for, read on for more information.

What is Face and Neck Lift Combination Surgery

A facelift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a procedure, completed by a plastic surgeon, that dramatically reduces the signs of aging such as loose and sagging skin, deep skin creases, and hollowing cheeks. A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a separate plastic surgery that removes excess fat, loose skin, and jowls around the jawline and, as its name implies, the neck area.
Combining these two cosmetic surgeries offers many benefits and increased results for patients.

Benefits of Combining Face and Neck Lift Surgery

If you are wondering why it is recommended to combine these two surgeries, there are a few good reasons that factor into the decision:
Balance. When you get a facelift without a neck lift, you may end up with a neck area that still has loose skin, jowls, and a double chin which takes away from the aesthetically pleasing result of the facelift.

Results. If your face is smooth and younger-looking but your neck is still very loose with hanging skin, it becomes overly obvious that you have had cosmetic surgery. If natural-looking results are important to you, combining the two procedures is a must.

Recovery. Another benefit to combining these procedures is combining recovery time. The average recovery time for either a neck lift, or facelift, is around 3 weeks, so getting them done at the same time allows for efficient healing all in one go.

The Best Anti-Aging Procedure: Neck and Face Lift

Time and time again, many patients have undergone this combination surgery to help rid their faces, chins, and necks of wrinkles, lines, excess skin, and fat deposits. After a day of surgery and some ever-important downtime, you can see incredible results that can last up to ten years.

Everyone is unique and the best way to determine what is best for you is to book a consultation with an experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your health history, facial anatomy, possible risks, and expected results.

How long can a face and neck lift last for?

Lifestyle and overall health do affect your results, but you can expect your results to last for about ten years.

Can you combine surgeries with a face lift?

There are a number of facial surgeries that can go well with a facelift to improve your anti-aging results such as:

  • Brow Lift
  • Neck Lift
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Nasal Surgery
  • Chin Surgery

Booking an appointment with a reputable plastic surgeon in the Okanagan like Dr. Brian Peterson for a consultation is a great way to begin planning your facial surgery combination. 

Will a facelift include the neck and jowls?

A facelift includes removing excess skin and abnormal face contours such as sagging in the midface, deep creases below the lower eyelids, and creases along the nose to the corner or the mouth. A neck lift is the removal of fat, jowls in the lower face, excess skin and fatty deposits under the chin and jaw. These procedures are often completed at the same time for a more blended, and natural looking result.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
