If you’ve decided to undergo a facelift surgery, congratulations!

This procedure is one of the best ways to tackle moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and skin sagging. In fact, facelift procedures have a consistently high patient satisfaction rating, with many people reporting that they feel as though they’ve removed years (if not decades) from their facial appearance.

But before you undergo surgery, consider this: Will you see better results if you get a neck lift along with your facelift?

How a Neck Lift Helps

Before we examine why you might want to combine a neck lift with a facelift, let’s first examine what this procedure is, and why it can help you look younger.

A neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure that’s designed to remove excessive saggy skin, as well as repair neck muscles that may be contributing to the sagginess. This surgery provides an excellent solution to “turkey neck”, where the skin around the jawline has begun to sag and create the appearance of jowls. It can also minimize the appearance of wrinkles and “neck bands” – those deep lines that ring around the neck.

Combining the Neck Lift With a Facelift

A neck lift can be combined with a facelift to achieve a more naturally youthful appearance. That way, you won’t have a face that looks younger, but a neck that still looks old and saggy. These surgeries can be easily combined together, so be sure to talk to your plastic surgeon if you’re considering getting a neck lift along with your facelift.
