Can You Get a Neck Lift and a Facelift at the Same Time?
Have you noticed more sagging skin and deeper wrinkles around your face and neck?
If that’s the case, you may have already considered a neck lift or facelift surgery. Both cosmetic procedures are great options for patients who feel as though their face or neck makes them appear older than they actually are. Both surgeries have high patient satisfaction ratings, with results that can last for several years.
But can you get a neck lift and a facelift at the same time?
The answer is yes – and in fact, it’s preferable to combine these two surgeries. Let’s take a closer look at why.
Combining a Neck Lift and a Facelift
Before we look at combining a neck lift and a facelift, let’s briefly discuss what those procedures involve. A facelift is a surgery that’s primarily designed to correct sagging facial muscles and tighten excessively saggy skin. A neck lift looks to achieve the same goals, just more localized around the neck and jawline.
While these surgeries can certainly be done separately, it’s actually better to get them combined into one overall procedure. Here’s why: if you just opt for a facelift, that specific area may look younger – but if you have signs of neck aging, your results may look too artificial or discordant.
In other words, if you want to create the most natural-looking results, you’ll need to correct aging on both the face and neck.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Neck Lift and a Facelift?
You’re a good candidate for a neck lift and a facelift if you have considerable aging symptoms on both areas, including:
- Sagging, droopy skin
- Sunken cheeks
- Deep undereye hollows
- Drooping eyebrows
- And more
The best way to find out if you’re a good candidate for this combined surgery is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. All candidates should be in excellent health and have realistic expectations for this procedure.
My experience with Dr. Vitolo was Great. After going through some difficult times all my stress caught up with me. I hated to look in the mirror each and every morning. I suddenly felt that I looked 10 years older than what I should.I set up a consultation with Dr. Vitolo and when I met with him I knew right there that he was a sincere and gentle person. Dr. Vitolo discussed with me the few flaws I was concerned about he set up to fix what I didn’t like about myself. We then put it into action. The pain and healing was not as bad as I thought it would be and the results were AMAZING. I didn’t do the surgery to change what I look like I wanted it so that I looked younger and youthful again and that’s exactly what I got. When and if I do tell people that I had surgery they tell me that they would have never know because it looks so natural. It’s one of the best things I did for myself. It benefited me in more than 1 way. Not only do I look younger I feel better and I like to look in the mirror again.
