Consider The Differences: A Neck Lift And A Facelift

facelift and neck lift in Guildford Connecticut | Dr. Gary Price MDThe neck lift and the facelift are two of the most effective cosmetic surgical procedures for enhancing the appearance of an aging neck and face…they are also two of the most popular procedures. Both produce long-lasting results; both share similar degrees of invasiveness and recovery periods; both result in significant improvement to saggy skin and weak muscles around the face and neck. Dr. Price often combines them into a single procedure which results in the amazing, age-defying benefits of both.

A neck lift procedure pulls excess skin under the chin, jawline, and jowls – the area commonly called the “turkey neck.” Incisions are generally placed behind the ears and below the chin. There are various types of facelift surgeries, but most plastic surgeons describe the facelift procedure as pulling up the skin at the cheeks, toward the forehead. Incisions are made primarily in front of the ear. The facelift focuses on improving the cheeks, double chins and the lower face. It reduces wrinkles and corrects sagging skin in those specific areas.

For most patients, improvements from these procedures are noticeable within days of the surgery. Visible bruising and swelling gradually disappear, and most patients are socially “presentable” after two weeks.


Would you benefit from one or both of these procedures?

  • To mimic a neck lift, place your fingers below your jawline, outside your jaw, and push upward and back.
  • To mimic a facelift, place your fingers at the top of your cheekbones and push your skin upward and back.

Dr. Price caters to the surgical needs of both men and women, and can help you decide which procedure would be best suited for you. Call, today, to schedule a consultation: (203) 453-6635.
