Strictly speaking, neck lift surgery refers to a standard lower facelift or rhytidectomy surgery. In other words, like a standard facelift procedure, neck lift also treats cosmetic problems that constitute sagging skin and muscle of the neck. Facelift is just bigger in scope in that it includes treatment of the lower portion of the face, while neck lift per se only treats drooping parts on the neck.
However, neck lift is different from neck liposuction. Neck lipo is a specific treatment for the excessive deposits of neck fat. In other words, the keyword for neck lift is “drooping skin” while “fat” for neck lipo. It can be quite a tricky play of surgery words. In practice, neck lift is normally performed in conjunction with other procedures like neck lipoplasty and standard facelift.
But one should be relieved that there is no need to master the differences, because it would still be upon your chosen plastic surgeon to determine the proper procedure for you. Just be discerning in choosing your plastic surgeon – somebody who can truly solve your particular cosmetic concern.
