WHAT IS NECK LIFT?

A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical surgery that improves the jawline and neck’s obvious indications of aging.
A range of variables, including inheritance, gravity, environmental circumstances, and stress, can cause the loss of young features in the face and neck.

  • Jowls, which are resulted by excess fat and skin laxity in the lower face
  • Excessive fatty deposits under the chin
  • Loose neck skin
  • Muscle banding in the neck, resulting in unnatural shapes can all be treated with a neck lift

Because the upper face is still attractive, some people believe they are not ready for a full facelift. Many patients, however, will see excessive neck skin wrinkles, a double chin or “turkey wattle,” and jowl lines.

A neck lift may be a helpful remedy if the neck area does not complement the upper facial appearance.

A brow lift, to repair a sagging or highly furrowed brow, fat transfer, to provide fullness to the lips and cheeks and decrease the appearance of wrinkles, or eyelid surgery, to revitalize aged eyes are all rejuvenation treatments that can be performed in conjunction with a neck lift.

Who is an ideal candidate for a neck lift?

  • Healthy persons who do not have medical issues that inhibit healing are suitable candidates for a neck lift.
  • People with a positive attitude and reasonable expectations
  • Those who have excessive neck skin wrinkles, a double chin or “turkey wattle,” and jowl lines.
  • Those whose neck area does not complement the upper facial appearance

    What should I expect during a neck lift surgery consultation?

    Prepare to cover the following topics during your neck lift surgery consultation:

    In addition, our neck lift surgeon will:

    • Evaluate your general health and any pre-existing health concerns or risk factors
    • Discuss your rejuvenation alternatives with your neck lift surgeon
    • Examine and measure your face
    • Take photographs
    • Recommend a treatment plan
    • Discuss the expected outcomes of a neck lift as well as any risks or difficulties that may arise
    • Discuss the type of anesthesia that will be used

    What should I do to prepare for a neck lift?

    You may be asked to do the following in order to prepare for neck lift surgery:

    • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
    • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
    • Stop smoking
    • Avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, as they can cause excessive bleeding.

    The following are some of the special instructions you’ll receive:

    • What to do the night before and the morning of your operation
    • How anesthetic will be used during your neck lift
    • Post-operative care and follow-up

    What can I expect during the recovery period after a neck lift?

    A bandage could be gently placed over your face and neck during your recovery from neck lift surgery to decrease swelling and bruising after your procedure is completed.

    There may be a tiny tube in place to drain any excess blood or fluid that has accumulated beneath the skin.

    Specific instructions will be given to you, including how to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to see your plastic surgeon again.

    To reduce swelling and keep your head straight, keep your head high over your heart (no excessive twisting or bending of the neck). ICE should not be applied to the neck since it can reduce blood flow and cause skin death.
