It depends on what you meant. If that's what you meant, then it's the same
thing. ;-) 

But just moving the next or previous word to the other side of the region is
different from swapping their places around the separators.

region sep word

1. word region sep 
(word moved to other side of region)

2. word sep region
(word and region swapped around separator)

I thought perhaps you meant #1. I described #2.
