The short answer is “yes”. However, it really depends on your goals, appearance, and overall health. For some patients, it might be best to combine a facelift with a neck lift; for others, it isn’t necessary. Combining these procedures allows the BAPRAS registered surgeons at Sthetix to create more natural contours and transitions in the lower face and neck.
The effects of aging can be witnessed in multiple areas of the face at once. While a facelift addresses the jowls, downturned corners of the mouth, and marionette lines associated with lower face laxity, a neck lift focuses on loose neck tissue and the area under the chin region. Blending the lower face into the neck is crucial for creating a naturally well-balanced and youthful appearance.
Why Get A Neck Lift & Facelift at the Same Time?
At Sthetix, our surgeons often perform both neck lift and facelift procedures in the same session for convenience and overall improved results. The result is a natural-looking contour across the jawline into the lower face.
#1: Enhanced Anti-Ageing Results
When performing a neck lift, corrections to the jowl area and jawline is recommended for a naturally blended result. A proper facelift will result in a harmonious and elegant jawline by incorporating a neck lift. The combination of these procedures allows the skin and deeper layers of the face to be more effectively lifted and tailored.
#2: No Extra Downtime
Recovery time following a facelift or neck lift can take around two or three weeks, depending on your individual procedure. Combining these surgeries into one session cuts your overall recovery time in half. Initial and noticeable swelling should be reduced within the first 10 days, though it can be present for up to 6 weeks. Most patients are able to return to work after two weeks following surgery.
Neck Lift & Face Lift Consultations Available
#3: Longer-Lasting Outcomes
Face and neck lift procedures have longer-lasting outcomes when compared to minimally-invasive alternatives. With a single procedure, you can expect the results following a facelift and neck lift surgery to last ten to fifteen years.
There are things you can do that will determine how long you can enjoy the results of your procedure. A few ways to prolong your results:
- Get serious about sun protection
- Use the right skincare products
- Take advantage of cosmetic treatments
Your skilled surgeon will help customize a skincare regimen that will maximize the effects of your procedure.
How Do I Know if a Neck Lift & Facelift are Right For Me?
The best way to know if this combination of procedures is right for you is to schedule a face-to-face consultation with the qualified surgeons at Sthetix. You will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure, as well as receive a physical examination to evaluate your needs. Our surgeons will discuss the limitations and outcomes associated with these procedures.
