Is It Possible to Combine Neck Lift and Facelift Surgery?
Among the many frustrating side effects of the natural aging process is the development of loose, sagging skin. While this occurs virtually everywhere on the body, the face and neck are often two of the first and most dramatically affected features. For patients who are seeking an all-in-one solution for restoring more youthful contours to the face and neck, a combination of facelift plus neck lift surgery may be a fitting option. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, board-certified and fellowship-trained Oculo Facial Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint helps Las Vegas, NV and Beverly Hills, CA patients love their look once again with a complete range of facial rejuvenation procedures, including combination surgeries. Use the information in this blog to gain a better understanding of how facelift plus neck lift surgery works, and find out if you may qualify for this transformative procedure.
Do I need a facelift, a neck lift, or neck lipo?
If you are concerned about sagging skin, drooping jowls, or a double chin, you may be wondering which facial rejuvenation surgery is most appropriate for you. While each patient is unique – and many facial rejuvenation plans are customized – it is helpful to first understand the fundamental aspects of each procedure when determining which is right for you:
- Facelift: The facelift is generally used to restore a more youthful overall facial appearance through skin tightening, skin excision, the repositioning of facial muscles and features, and other techniques. Depending on the patient’s specific concerns and goals, one of several types of facelifts – including the full facelift, mid-facelift, or lower facelift – may be used.
- Neck lift: During neck lift surgery, Dr. Myint is able to resculpt a firmer, more slender, more youthful neckline by removing loose, hanging neck skin, tightening the remaining skin, and repairing the muscles, if necessary.
- Neck liposuction: Patients with stubborn neck fat that creates a double chin can achieve a slimmer neckline through neck liposuction.
Can I have a facelift and neck lift at the same time?
Absolutely. Many patients choose to combine facelift surgery with a neck lift – and sometimes neck liposuction as well – in order to achieve a more complete and proportionate new look. During a combination facelift plus neck lift, Dr. Myint will make strategic incisions. These incisions are typically placed along the hairline and just above or behind the ears, making any resulting scars easy to conceal. Using a number of techniques, including skin excision, muscle repositioning and tightening, liposuction fat removal, and others, a smoother, tauter, more rested appearance can be achieved. In addition to a facelift plus neck lift, patients with concerns about a weak or setback chin may also choose to incorporate the placement of a chin implant into their surgical plan.
When performed properly by a highly experienced facial plastic surgeon, the results of a combination facelift with neck lift can be remarkably natural-looking and last for many years to come.
