Neck Lift vs. Neck Liposuction: What You Need to Know

1. Neck lift is ideal for wrinkles and sagging skin.

If you’ve noticed obvious skin sagging around your neck or you have moderate neck bands and wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for a neck lift.

This cosmetic procedure aims to address signs of neck aging by repositioning the muscles to their youthful placement. Once the muscles have been resculpted, sagging skin is trimmed away until the patient’s new neck contours are revealed. 

A neck lift can lead to the minimization of sagging, wrinkles, neck bands, and even crepey skin.

2. Neck liposuction focuses on fat.

Neck liposuction aims to remove the fat that may be resulting in the appearance of a double chin or neck rolls. A small cannula is used to manually remove excess fat, while sculpting remaining tissue to create a more natural and contoured jawline. 

Neck liposuction does not address existing sagging skin. Additionally, patients with poor skin laxity may need to get a neck lift after neck liposuction, as the fat removal could potentially leave behind saggy skin.

3. Neck lift and neck liposuction can be combined for dramatic results.

If you’re a good candidate for both procedures, you may want to have your surgeries combined for the ultimate neck contouring results.

Neck liposuction is typically performed first, after which a neck lift is used to reposition muscles to create the youthful look you’ve been looking for.

“I must say Dr. Farole is a all around great guy. Very professional and warming. The whole staff as well. I always felt at home and in good hands. I came to Doctor farole for wisdom teeth removal. He and his staff explained everything thoroughly and eased my nerves. Everything was perfect during the surgery. Post surgery everything was great as well. I’m very glad I found Dr. Farole.” *
