Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Neck Lifts

Surgical vs. Non-Surgical Neck Lifts

Are you considering a neck lift? It can be difficult to decide whether you should undergo a surgical or non-surgical procedure. Both procedures have their benefits and risks, so it’s important to weigh your options carefully before deciding.

What is a Surgical Neck Lift?

A surgical neck lift is a skin-tightening cosmetic procedure performed by a plastic surgeon, that is used to improve the appearance of the neck area and jawline to make it look more youthful. A neck lift can be done surgically or nonsurgically, depending on the severity of the problem. When choosing between surgical and non-surgical neck lifts, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration, including desired results, duration of the lift, and recovery time.

Benefits of a Surgical Neck Lift

  • Reduces double chin and loose neck skin
  • Long-lasting results
  • Precise contouring
  • Tightens skins elastin

Types of Surgical Neck Lifts

The most common type of surgical neck lift is called a rhytidectomy, which literally means “wrinkle removal.” During this procedure, excess skin and fat are removed from the area to give the neck a smoother, more youthful appearance. Other types of surgical neck lifts include Platysmaplasty (tightening of the muscles around the neck) and Cervicoplasty (removal of excess skin).

What is a Non-Surgical Neck Lift?

A non-surgical neck lift is a less invasive procedure and does not involve any plastic surgery. Instead, non-surgical treatments use a combination of radiofrequency energy, laser treatments, and dermal fillers like Botox to achieve the desired results. Radiofrequency energy is used to tighten the skin while dermal fillers are used to reduce wrinkles and add volume to the neck area. Non-surgical neck lifts provide results that last up to 18 months but require multiple sessions to achieve the desired outcome.

Benefits of a Non-Surgical Neck Lift

  • No cosmetic surgery or general anesthesia required
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Little to no scarring
  • More affordable
  • Removes fat cells
  • Anti-aging

Types of Non-Surgical Neck Lifts

Non-surgical neck lifts are divided into three different types: radiofrequency lifting, laser resurfacing, and dermal fillers. Radiofrequency lifting uses a device that emits high-energy radio waves to heat the skin underneath the surface, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. Laser resurfacing removes fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections using a light beam that vaporizes the tissue. Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, are injected into the skin to add volume and reduce wrinkles.

What is the Best Type of Neck Lift?

Kybella is the best type of neck lift for people looking to reduce excess fat and tighten the skin on their necks. It is an FDA-approved non-surgical procedure that uses deoxycholic acid, which is injected into the fat beneath the chin area to break down fatty cells. Kybella can provide dramatic natural-looking results within two weeks but may require multiple treatments in order to achieve optimum results.
