Its best to get the implants first and see or the neck lift with the implants, as implans will improve the neck and require less "lifting." Please see a facial sculpting expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Would having a neck lift be a problem if you want to get jaw implants some time later, or vice versa?

I do not think that having a neck lift now and jaw implants some time later would be a problem.

Jaw implants and neck lift
To make a long answer short, no, there is no issue with doing either a neck lift first and then jaw implants, or vice versa. However, remember that most people need volume restoration at the same time of their lift - the lift addresses only the skin laxity aspect of aging, while we also have volume depletion and skin damage that goes on with aging. The mandibular angle is notorious for bony resorption over time - addressing volume along this area is key in recreating a youthful jawline along with an appropriate neck lift. Best of luck!
Neck lift and jaw or chin implant
The most common type of jaw implant (which I am assuming you are referring to) is an implant to improve the projection of the chin. Although a chin implant can definitely be done later on, if you're interested in a chin implant now, you should consider doing it at the same time as the neck lift. A small incision is often made under the chin at the time of a neck lift to remove fat deposits and/or tighten muscles. Through this same incision, a chin implant can be placed.
