What is the Difference Between a Neck Lift and a Facelift?

There are plenty of cosmetic procedures out there that can help transform your appearance, especially if you feel self-conscious about neck or face wrinkles.

But with so much choice out there, it can be difficult to determine the differences between the two. So when it comes down to a neck lift and a facelift – two incredibly popular anti-aging treatments – what’s the difference between the two?

All About the Neck Lift

The neck lift is a surgical procedure that addresses signs of aging along the neck, especially:

  • Sagging neck skin
  • Wrinkles and folds
  • Jowls/turkey neck

During the neck lift procedure, your plastic surgeon will make small incisions directly underneath the chin or behind the ears. These incisions allow your surgeon to access and readjust sagging muscles.

Once these muscles are in their new position, your surgeon will trim away excess skin. The end result is a smoother, firmer, and more lifted neck appearance.

What’s in a Facelift?

A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on addressing visible facial aging symptoms, such as:

  • Facial wrinkles and folds
  • Sagging facial muscles
  • Drooping brow line
  • And more

Much like in the neck lift procedure, your plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions behind your ears and along the scalp line to access your mid-facial muscles. From there, your surgeon will readjust sagging muscles, as well as trim away any excess skin left behind.

The overall result can help create:

  • Smoother skin
  • Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
  • A lifted, younger-looking appearance
  • A brighter, more well-rested visage

Can You Combine a Neck Lift with a Facelift?

Good news: you can combine a neck lift with a facelift. In fact, it’s recommended for many cases, as combining the two procedures can help create the most natural results possible.
