Comprehensive Rejuvenation: Including a Neck Lift with a Facelift

When you notice that your face and neck are showing early signs of aging, there are two ways to react. One option is ignoring these signs of aging. Unfortunately, if you ignore them, they’ll only get worse. Your other option is making a choice to do something about them.

If you’ve decided to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging neck skin, your next step is choosing the right cosmetic solution. Facelifts and neck lift miami are very popular options these days. They’re each quite effective on their own, but did you know that they can also be combined in a single comprehensive surgery? This combination can bring about substantial enhancement for your overall appearance.


The determining factor for combining a facelift and a neck lift lies in the actual problem at hand. If you are only looking for correction of minor aging issues such as shallow lines in the midface, a neck lift would not be necessary.

But if you have harsh lines in the lower portion of the face, sagging in the areas around the cheeks or the chin, and age signs on the neck, a neck lift with a facelift can achieve excellent results.

Additionally, when patients get a facelift without a neck lift and leave harsh aging signs on the neck, the resulting contrast between the two areas can be off-putting and odd. This can also be the case when the neck is corrected but aging signs on the face are not.

During a comprehensive combination facelift/neck lift, Dr. Salas performs an integrated surgery that corrects the lower face, the cheeks, and the jawline while also tightening the sagging tissue and bulging fat on the neck. Given that there is only a single surgery happening, there are minimal incisions involved, lowering the risk of complications.


If the facelift and neck lift are done separately, there will be separate recovery periods for each of the surgeries. This can cause patients to experience a lot of time away from work and daily activities. It also creates two separate opportunities for the development of unwanted post-surgical complications.

But by combining a facelift and a neck lift, you have the benefit of instead going through a single recovery phase. This makes it possible to get back to your daily routine much sooner and reduces chances of complications.
