Can Neck Lift Be Combined with Thigh Lift?

My neck and inner thighs are my problem areas. Thinking about getting a neck lift and inner thigh lift together. I do not have excessive amounts of fat and skin sagging. I'm in my mid-50s and at normal weight. Can these two procedures be combined? I am also wondering about how long the recovery would take if we combine these two procedures.

There should not be a problem combining a neck and thigh lift as long as your surgeon is qualified to do both. If the surgeon who you want to perform your necklift is a facial plastic surgeon, you may need to consult another surgeon and have them communicate with one another. In addition, you don't want both surgeries to take very long, as being under general anesthesia for too long can have adverse effects on the body. You will need a minimum of one to two weeks to recover depending on your body and experience. “Dr. D”

Thank you for the question.  A neck lift and thigh lift can be performed at the same time.  There are a number of different neck lift and thigh lift procedures available.  The key is proper communication with your plastic surgeons in terms of your goals as well as the advantages and disadvantages to the planned procedures.

All the best,

Yes, you can combine the surgeries. Take 7-10 days to recover, although I suggest you discuss this with your surgeon.good luck with your procedure. Thomas Narsete, M.D.

   A thigh lift and neck lift can be performed together provided they can both be performed in under 6 hrs.  If you need a neck and lower facelift and a a groin incision thigh lift, this can probably be done in 4 hrs.  Find the plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of multiple procedure surgeries each year with an excellent safety record.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
