Neck Lift

What is a Neck Lift?

As we age, the effects of gravity and sun exposure can be seen in our necks. A neck lift is a procedure which eliminates excess fat tissue to tighten underlying muscles giving you an rejuvenated naturally youthful appearance with enhanced definition for all areas on your face resulting from facelift procedures done at the same time as it's being lifted up by this process.

Who is a Neck Lift Candidate?

The best candidates for neck lift are those who want to improve the loose skin and excess fatty deposits under their chins, which can make them appear to have a double chin. This operation is especially useful in those with laxity of skin that won't fit into new contour by liposuction along or minimally invasive treatments; injections may also be ineffective because they're too small.

How do I prepare for my Neck Lift?

Your surgeon will examine your face and neck to make sure that this procedure is safe for you. They'll also discuss the variables like age, size or shape; amount fat on skin quality etc., before starting work-up phase of surgery processing.

What happens during a Neck Lift?

Neck lift surgery is usually done as an outpatient, or inpatient (with a stay at least overnight) under general anesthesia. The surgery takes two to three hours and may include fat sculpting from around the neck area; underlying muscles are repositioned and lifted up over time too so you'll have more definition for your features all together! Skin will be redraped over uplifted contours afterwords where necessary - any excess skin removed creating smoother lines on top of what we started with.
The neck lift incision begins in front of the ear lobe and wraps around behind the ear ending in the lower scalp. There are different variations of this incision, such as shorter incisions, depending on the laxity of the tissue being suspended.

What is the Neck Lift Recovery Process?

You may feel some pain for the first few days after surgery, but your surgeon will prescribe medication to help with this. The ace bandages should remain dry and intact during this time too! You can return to work (if not too strenuous) or social activities in about two weeks once it’s all finished healing up nicely - by then most patients are back at their normal lifestyle again.

What are the Risks of a Neck Lift?

Complications are infrequent and minor, including bleeding or bruising. In rare cases infection could develop from a wound that has not healed properly; fluid accumulation in certain areas may cause pain as well if it accumulates too much without treatment over time.. Poor healing is possible due to smoking habits (which also causes sensory changes). Numbness/sensory alterations with potential muscle damage leading up the neck injury should be considered when dealing with these injuries.
