Neck Lift vs. Facelift: Which Should I Choose?
As time gracefully advances, our reflections in the mirror often reveal subtle signs of aging, particularly in the delicate areas of the neck and face. The emergence of saggy skin, the formation of vertical bands, and the unwelcome presence of a double chin become more noticeable, leaving us pondering the possibilities of cosmetic enhancement. In facial rejuvenation, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew White offers two prominent options: the neck lift and the facelift.
The Neck Lift: Sculpting Elegance Below the Jawline
Dr. White sculpts and slenderizes the area by meticulously removing excess fat deposits and tightening loose neck skin. The neck lift works wonders in restoring tightness to sagging skin and muscles, whether the under-chin fat, the notorious “turkey neck” appearance, or the presence of jowls and vertical neck bands.
For those seeking a comprehensive rejuvenation, Dr. White may even incorporate facial fat transfer to smooth out etched-in neck creases and wrinkles, unveiling a neck area that radiates smoothness and youthfulness.
The Facelift: A Harmonious Rejuvenation
While the neck lift concentrates on the lower face and neck, the facelift takes a broader approach, addressing the mid-to-lower face region. It involves repositioning underlying tissues and removing excess skin. This procedure is renowned for its ability to combat deep wrinkles, sagging jowls, and the effects of gravity on the cheeks. A facelift can create a harmonious rejuvenation, ensuring the results are natural and enhancing overall facial balance.
Choosing Between the Two
The decision between a neck lift and a facelift hinges on various factors, including the specific concerns you wish to address and your desired outcome:
- If your primary focus is on the neck area, with concerns such as under-chin fat and sagging skin, the neck lift may be the ideal choice.
- On the other hand, if you seek a comprehensive facial rejuvenation, targeting sagging jowls and deep wrinkles, the facelift might be the answer.
During your initial consultation with your surgeon, you’ll embark on a collaborative journey to determine the most fitting procedure for your unique needs. For example, Dr. White’s commitment to personalized care ensures that your aesthetic vision becomes the focal point of the decision-making process.
Can You Combine A Facelift And Neck Lift?
The visible signs of aging can impact various aspects of the face, including the brows, cheeks, and neck. These areas may become saggy, resulting in a square-jawed look. Fortunately, a facelift and neck lift can be combined during surgery since they target neighboring regions. Typically, a full facelift and neck lift are done simultaneously to address loose skin, lift drooping muscles, and fix vertical neck banding in one procedure.
