Those looking to treat skin laxity, fine lines, and sagging skin often opt for a facelift or neck lift surgery. A facelift tightens the skin and facial muscles and removes fat to create a smooth, firm appearance. A neck lift removes excess skin and fat around the jaw to better define the features. Alone, each procedure provides a subtle change to increase your confidence. By combining the two procedures, patients can achieve a more consistent and balanced look, depending on their goals.
The Advantages of Combining Procedures
While many people have a neck lift or facelift separately, it comes with many benefits to combine the two procedures, such as:
Achieve a Balanced Appearance
When you address your neck or face alone, you may be left feeling distracted and self-conscious about other problem areas. If you combine the procedures you can receive comprehensive results and correct all your concerns at the same time.
Furthermore, you may feel as though your appearance is imbalanced if you have a lift in one area and not the other. If you combine a neck lift and facelift, you can achieve balanced and natural results.
If you opt to have one of these cosmetic procedures, you will need to take time off from work and other activities to recover. The results are worth it, but the downtime can be a bit stressful. So why go through it more than once? When you combine the two procedures you won’t have to worry about undergoing the downtime and recovery period more than once.
Save on Costs
With surgery, there are fees that come along with it that you will have to incur multiple times if you choose to have more than one procedure. This can include the anesthesia, the operating room, and/ or hospital fees. Combining surgeries will save on these extra costs.
