Neck Lift vs Facelift: What is the Difference?

Facelift and neck lift surgeries are two of the most popular and effective procedures for dramatically improving the appearance of the face, reducing aging in the face and neck areas. While both of these procedures help to improve your appearance, they have some differences as well. Read on to learn more about these procedures and how they differ.


Both a neck lift and a facelift result in improvements in sagging skin and signs of aging around the face and neck. Both outcomes are significant and can take years off of the appearance. Both procedures also share similar degrees of invasiveness and recovery time.


There are also some differences when it comes to these two procedures. These include:

Facelift: The facelift procedure generally focuses on addressing the skin at the cheeks up towards the forehead. The main goal of a facelift is to improve the cheeks, lower face, jowls, and jawline to correct signs of aging in the area.

Neck Lift: A neck lift generally focuses on pulling excess skin under the chin, jawline, and jowls, correcting these areas and eliminate “turkey neck”.

Which One is Right for Me?

The procedure that is right for you will depend on your specific issues and desired results. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Brueck is the best way to determine your candidacy.
