Neck Lift

A Neck Lift, also known as lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to create a more youthful-looking neck and jawline. It’s done to provide better definition to the neck and the angle of the jaw by removing some of the fat and by tightening the muscles along the neck. The surgery can correct the skin laxity, eliminate sagging skin and help achieve a more youthful look of the neck.
The surgery can also fix visible muscle banding in the neck and correct double chin caused by aging. The procedure is also helpful in cases where extreme weight loss has caused extra folds of the skin.

Your Journey with CosmeSurge

Consultation

During your consultation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss why you need the surgery, and what you hope to achieve. You will also discuss the process of the surgery and everything that will be involved until your recovery period. You should be completely open with the doctor about your expectations, concerns and habits. Your medical history will be evaluated to determine candidacy for the surgery. The doctor will also take photos of your face & neck so that you can see the difference after the surgery.

There are certain guidelines that the doctor will advise you to follow before the surgery, like maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regularly, stop smoking at least three weeks before the surgery, to strictly avoid anti-inflammatory drugs or medicines having aspirin so that the risk of excess bleeding is reduced.

Surgery

  • Neck lift can be done with sedation and local anesthesia or under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting.
  • Depending on the degree of change you'd like to see, your neck lift choices include a traditional neck lift incision or a limited incision neck lift.
  • A traditional neck lift incision often begins in the hairline at the level of the sideburn, continues down and around the ear and ends in the posterior hair. Fat may be sculpted or redistributed from the jowls and neck. The tissue underlying the neck skin is repositioned, and commonly the platysma muscle is tightened. Skin is re-draped over the uplifted contours and excess skin is trimmed away. A separate incision under the chin is often necessary for liposuction of this area and for repair of the muscle. Sutures or skin adhesives close the incisions.
  • A limited incision neck lift may involve incisions only around the ear. While the incisions are shorter, the results may be more limited.
  • Incision lines are closed with sutures and perhaps skin glue. Sutures may be dissolving or may need to be removed after a few days. Once healed, the incision lines from a neck lift are usually well concealed within the hairline and in the natural contours of the ear.

Post Surgery

Following the surgery, a bandage might be placed around your face to minimize swelling and bruising. Small tubes may be present to draw off any excess blood or fluid. You may experience mild to moderate pain, drainage from the incisions, swelling, bruising or numbness. Your surgeon will prescribe medication to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection.

Drainage pipes will be removed after two days of the surgery. Bandages and sutures will be removed after five days of the surgery.

After Care

In order to have successful long-lasting results it is important to follow the below:

  • Take pain medication and apply ointment as per prescription.
  • Keep your head elevated while resting or sleeping.
  • Avoid strenuous activities
  • Do not apply ice to the neck as this can compromise blood flow and result in skin death.
  • It is important to attend the follow-up appointments with your doctor to keep your track of your progress.
