Should I Get a Neck Lift with My Facelift?

When it comes to combining a neck lift with a face lift, the answer really depends. While it’s generally recommended to combine the procedures to achieve the most natural results, it’s also important to recognize that parts of the body age differently. For example, your neck may show signs of aging – including jowls, neckbands, and more – long before you start to see significant facial aging.

So how do you know if you should combine a neck lift with a facelift? Here are a few key signs:

  • You have similar aging symptoms on your neck and face (wrinkles, skin sagging, deep lines, etc.).
  • You feel self-conscious about the appearance of your neck and decolletage.
  • You want the most natural results possible.
  • You don’t want to have two separate surgeries within a short time span.

Now that we’ve examined the signs you should combine the two procedures, here are key indicators that you may be a good candidate for a facelift or a neck lift:

  • You see a big disparity in facial aging vs. neck aging.
  • You still think your neck looks good compared to your facial aging.
  • You specifically want to address signs of aging around your mid-to-upper facial region, like the upper cheeks and around the eyes.

In some cases, minor neck aging can be addressed with a lower or mini-facelift, which focuses on correcting sagging around the jawline and neck. Make sure you understand what facial areas your plastic surgeon will treat in a traditional facelift, as this may negate the need to combine it with a neck lift.

Ultimately, it’s important to pick a board certified plastic surgeon who can make the most informed recommendation as to what may help you achieve the best results. Additionally, the best plastic surgeon may not necessarily recommend either of these options; instead, he or she can offer alternative solutions (like Kybella or a mini-facelift) to help address signs of aging.
