Facelift Vs. Neck Lift: What’s The Difference?
As an innovative facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Sadati has helped pioneer new techniques and procedures to achieve beautiful, highly personalized results with thousands of facelifts and neck lifts. If you’re looking for a way to take decades off your aging appearance, the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery has a complete line of treatments for you.
When performed by an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Sadati, facelifts are the most effective way to reduce the signs of facial aging. Facelifts can dramatically reduce moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles, remove excess sagging skin, and redistribute tissue to tighten the appearance.
A facelift is limited in scope to the mid to lower face, from the cheekbones to the chin. Combining facelift with other surgeries, such as a brow lift, can increase the total area for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Sadati uses Twilight sedation instead of total general anesthesia to perform his face and neck lift surgeries.
A neck lift is exactly what it sounds like: a surgical procedure that can help tighten, remove fat, and provide a naturally contoured neck area. Depending on your specific concerns and condition, neck surgery can correct double chin, loose skin on the jowls, and tighten neck muscles.
Neck lifts are targeted procedures that can be combined with other cosmetic surgical techniques as needed to achieve a comprehensive result.
It’s common for a facelift to be paired with a neck lift in patients who are looking for the most dramatic, age-defying results for their facial appearance. However, when planning for cosmetic surgeries like these, it is best to consult with a board-certified facial plastic surgeon before committing to any specific procedures.
Neck lifts and facelifts can be combined with other procedures like a brow lift, rhinoplasty (nose job), or eyelid lift as recommended by Dr. Sadati. Combination procedures are common practice and can reduce total costs and recovery time, as well as provide the most game-changing results.
It’s difficult to know simply through researching different facial plastic surgery procedures which is the right one for you. Although seeing before-and-after photos can give you some insight into those with similar facial anatomy and procedure goals, they aren’t personalized to your unique needs. That’s why all our patients begin with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sadati.
In your consultation, not only can you present your concerns and wishes for treatment, you also receive an examination from his professional eye that will lead to a recommendation for which procedures are needed for your results. For instance, you may think you benefit from a full, traditional facelift, whereas during your examination Dr. Sadati may realize a mini facelift and full neck lift will best achieve the results you desire. These procedures are performed with twilight sedation without the need for total general anesthesia.
If you’re ready to look as young as you feel, don’t wait another day to start the journey toward the naturally beautiful results of a facelift or neck lift. These procedures have helped hundreds of Dr. Sadati’s patients turn back the clock with life-changing new looks. His innovative procedures are enjoyed by patients and esteemed by surgical professionals around the world.
