    What Does Neck Lift Mean?

    A neck lift is a cosmetic surgery applied to get a younger-looking neck. During the operation, both excess skin and sagging fat tissue are removed. At the end of the procedure, the jawline borders become more distinct and firmed up.

    This surgery is preferred if the skin is sagging under the chin and if there is deformation caused by excess lipoidosis around the neck area. Jaw shape, neck site, and jaw structure have an effect on the success of the results.

    We keep saying that aging causes sagging and loosing skin conditions. But what are the causes of regional sagging other than aging? There are various factors that can cause the skin to lose its elasticity. Gravity, ultraviolet (UV) rays, genetic factors, muscle weakness, weight gain, obesity, and excess fat tissue are among the reasons for neck lift surgery.

    Neck Lift Surgery Consultation Phase

    Detailed information is given to people who want to undergo this surgery.  The doctor informs the patient about the purpose, process, and result of the operation.

    Specific to neck lift surgery, answers are given to the questions such as "what kind of procedures are performed, what are the neck lift prices, what are the causes of sagging in the neck area".

    The complaints and, of course, expectations are listened to. Also, the patients' medical history is reviewed in detail, their general health status is checked, and their facial line measurements are completed. After all of these, the surgery date is scheduled.

    Preparation For Neck Lift Surgery

    Before the surgery, the patient may need to do some precautions that the doctor warns about.

    For example, aspirin or blood thinners should not be taken.

    You may be asked not to smoke both before and after the surgery. Because the effects of smoking slow down the healing process.

    It should be added that quitting smoking for good will be advantageous in terms of long-term positive effects.

    In addition, although a neck lift is an outpatient surgery, as a precaution, it is recommended that someone accompany you on your way home and stay with you for the first night.

    Neck Lift Surgery Process

    The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Local anesthesia and sedation methods can also be preferred. The doctor will determine the ideal anesthesia option in agreement with the patient.

    The first step after the anesthesia starts with making an incision. Cuts are made in front of the ear and under the chin.

    The most preferred method for neck lift operation is liposuction. After a small incision is made under the chin and behind the ear, excess fat in the relevant area is suctioned and then the skin is sutured. The liposuction method may not be sufficient in some cases and the doctor may want to support the process with different treatment methods.

    The operation takes about 2-3 hours, Since it is performed as ambulatory surgery, the patient is discharged from the hospital on the same day. Of course, if the circumstances require or the doctor requests, the day of leaving the hospital may change.

    Neck Lift Surgery Recovery Process

    Some side effects may occur after neck lift surgery. Common complications will go away over time, but if an unexpected situation occurred, it is necessary to contact the doctor.

    After the operation, special bandages are used to support the neck area. The patient may experience swelling, bruising, and numbness.

    Stitches are removed in 7 to 10 days. Full recovery takes about 3-6 months. During the neck lift healing process, you should not be exposed to the sun too much, and you should not irritate the incisions.

    FAQ

    During the operation, the patient does not feel pain. After the surgery, side effects such as soreness and tightness may be experienced. In order to minimize the discomfort that these temporary effects may cause, you can use the painkillers given by the surgeon.

    You should not lift heavy objects, not do intense exercises, not delay follow-up appointments, or not irritate the incision site.

    The answer is yes. Neck lift surgery can be done as a single procedure or neck lift and facelift surgeries can be applied together. In fact, in some cases, only facelift surgery may not be enough. Even it can be said that neck lift is mostly applied together with facelift surgery.
