Should I Combine a Facelift with a Necklift?
- Posted on: Jan 30 2015
The most effective procedure to restore the appearance of an aging face is a facelift. However, the effects of aging often take place in the neck, before the signs of aging become prominent in the face. For patients looking for a youthful overhaul of both the face and neck, facelift and necklift procedures may be combined for the ultimate rejuvenating results.
The Neck Shows Signs of Aging Before the Face Does
- Necklift procedure works to tighten and smooth the skin of the neck
- A small incision is placed under the chin, and if necessary behind the ears
- Scarring is inconspicuous and unlikely to be detected
- Muscles in the neck may be re-positioned or removed to enhance results
- If necessary, liposuction may be performed to remove fat from the neck
- A necklift is an outpatient procedure
Facelifts are Often Performed on People Between 40 and 60 Years Old
- Facelift procedure intends to tighten and smooth the skin of the face
- Creates a more youthful appearance
- May be combined with blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), browlift or rhinoplasty for dramatic results
- Procedure is tailored to fit the needs of each patient’s individual facial anatomy and surgical goals
- Because this procedure is customized, incision sites vary but are always placed in the least noticeable places
- A facelift is often an outpatient procedure
When Should a Facelift and Necklift be Combined?
- When a patient feels the appearance of their face and neck makes them appear older than they are
- When a patient suffers insecurity due to the appearance of their face and neck
- When a plastic surgeon has evaluated the patient and recommends combining procedures for best aesthetic results
- When a patient is considering having both procedures, they should be performed together to minimize risks
- Combining procedures exposes patients to the risks associated with anesthesia once, rather than multiple
- Combining procedures allows patients to heal concurrently, meaning the recovery period is gone through once
