How and to Whom the Neck Lift Surgery Can Be Applied?
If there is any sagging on the neck area due to age or genetic structure, neck lift surgery is one of the best options to eliminate that. Neck lift operation consists of two steps: removing the loose skin on the neck and lifting the saggy muscles around neck. One of them can be preferred for a patient and sometimes both depending on the case. It can be done with other facial operations as facelift or other facial rejuvenation methods.
What Does The Neck Lift Operation Contain?
Necklift operations are performed under general anesthesia or sedation. Operation is performed with incisions made just in front or back of the ear and under the chin when needed. During operation, the skin and the muscle layer below it, are lifted to make the neck area younger and more attractive. Traces cannot be seen because of the right placement.
Recovery after Neck Lift Operation
The recovery period is related to the operation performed. Swelling and bruising within certain limits after operation should be considered normal.
Normally, it is between 7 and 15 days for the patient to perform his daily activities and return to work. This period depends on the quality of the work and the healing capacity of the person. Tension in the neck area can last for several months.
