As the face ages, the cheeks and jowls descend, and this is often accompanied by wrinkles in the neck area. While it’s possible to do a facelift for facial rejuvenation, it won’t be complete if the neck skin is also crepey, so it makes sense to do a neck lift at the same time. But what are some of the benefits of combining a face and neck lift.
The decision to go with a face and neck lift will primarily depend on your aesthetic needs. If you need to reduce jowls, create a more defined jawline and chin, restore volume to the cheeks, and improve your neck contour, a combination procedure would better address your concerns, and give you a fresh, youthful look.
Benefits of combining a face and neck lift:
- If you have aging in the lower half of the face then you will get an overall aesthetically pleasing outcome by combining a face and neck lift.
- The cost of doing the operations together will be less than doing 2 separate surgeries. In addition, you will only have to deal with one recovery period.
- The face and neck tend to age at a similar rate, so most people have some degree of aging in both areas at the same time. Therefore doing surgery on the face and neck at once will create a more harmonious outcome, which may not be likely if you only do surgery on one area.
