Can a neck lift be done without a facelift?

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, focuses specifically on improving the appearance of the neck area by addressing concerns such as loose or sagging skin, excess fat deposits, muscle banding, and wrinkles. This procedure targets the neck region below the jawline and chin, helping to redefine the jawline, eliminate neck bands, and create a smoother, more youthful neck contour.

While a facelift primarily targets the lower two-thirds of the face, including the cheeks, jowls, and nasolabial folds, a neck lift specifically addresses the neck area. Some individuals may experience ageing or aesthetic concerns primarily in the neck region without significant changes in the face, making a neck lift an ideal solution to address these specific concerns.

Plastic surgeons at Formedi in Antalya, Turkey, can customize the neck lift procedure to meet each patient's unique needs and goals. Depending on the individual's anatomy and desired outcomes, various techniques may be utilized during a neck lift, including:

1-)Neck Liposuction: This technique involves the removal of excess fat deposits from the neck area through tiny incisions. Neck liposuction can help contour the neck and jawline, reducing the appearance of a double chin or fatty deposits.

2-)Platysmaplasty: This procedure focuses on tightening the underlying neck muscles (platysma muscles) to address muscle banding or vertical neck bands. By tightening these muscles, the neck can appear smoother and more toned.

3-)Cervicoplasty: During cervicoplasty, excess skin is removed from the neck area to eliminate sagging or loose skin. This helps to restore a more youthful and defined neck contour.

4-)Neck Lift with Incisions: In some cases, a neck lift may involve making discreet incisions behind the ears or under the chin to access and tighten the underlying tissues and remove excess skin.

By undergoing a neck lift without a facelift, individuals can achieve targeted improvement in the appearance of the neck area without altering the appearance of the face. This allows for a more tailored approach to address specific aesthetic concerns in the neck region while maintaining a natural and harmonious overall appearance
