Which Procedures Should You Add to Your Facelift?

Posted February 14, 2024 in Facelift

A facelift is a popular choice for facial rejuvenation; however, it only addresses signs of aging in the lower face. Many people who experience wrinkles and sagging skin have these issues all over their faces and necks. Here, we discuss the benefits of combining your facelift with additional facial surgeries—forehead lift, blepharoplasty, neck lift—as well as the cost and recovery benefits of undergoing multiple surgeries simultaneously.

Getting a Facelift

Do you have saggy, droopy skin and wrinkles on your face that make you look more exhausted and tired than you really feel? A facelift is an excellent way to address signs of aging and tiredness in the lower facial area. The procedure allows your surgeon to redistribute the fat in your face and remove excess sagging skin while repositioning the remaining skin to fit nicely over your new facial contours. You can say goodbye to deep lines, wrinkles, drooping cheeks, and jowls with a facelift.

If you’re considering getting a facelift, you may also be interested in other plastic surgery procedures to enhance your facial features. As a facelift only provides results for the lower two-thirds of the face, you may want to combine procedures that address the upper face and the neck.

Benefits of Combining Plastic Surgery Procedures

Getting multiple procedures done in one session may initially seem daunting, but it has many cost and recovery benefits. While you will initially be spending more money upfront on multiple procedures, you’ll save money in the long run since you’ll only have to pay for additional fees—operating room, anesthesia, etc.—once. If you were getting multiple procedures spread out over several appointments, you would have to pay the additional fees for every procedure.

When you combine procedures, you can undergo one recovery period instead of several if you had each procedure done individually. One recovery period benefits many patients, as they don’t have to worry about taking off work for several weeks multiple times. They can just focus on the one chunk of time they take off work to recover and heal their bodies.

What Can You Add to a Facelift?

While a facelift rejuvenates the lower face, other procedures target the rest of the face and neck. Many patients combine these procedures to enhance their facial harmony and symmetry.

Forehead Lift

If you have deep frown lines on your forehead, a forehead lift—also called a brow lift—can remove those creases and give your upper face a more youthful look. This procedure also lifts sagging eyebrows and corrects signs of aging in the upper third of your face.


An excellent option for those with droopy eyes, wrinkles around the eyes, eyebags, or hooded upper eyelids is a blepharoplasty procedure. Also called eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty eliminates the appearance of tired and worn-down eyes.

Neck Lift

The neck shows signs of aging just as easily as the face does. As you age naturally, the skin on the neck becomes weak and sags, often obscuring the jawline and making your neck look wrinkly. A neck lift removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin, giving you a slimmer, smoother neck. It also targets sagging skin underneath the jawline, making your jaw look more defined.
