Neck lift is a cosmetic surgery on the neck to enhance the appearance of the neck and improve the visible signs of aging in the neck.
Overview of Neck Lift
Many people neglect the appearance of their neck. The neck is one of the first parts of the body that shows the signs of ageing. In addition, sun exposure and weight loss may contribute to saggy, aged and loose looks of the neck. This condition also called turkey neck. People who suffer from turkey neck have low self-esteem, and in some cases, can result in depression. This procedure can make a person look younger by creating a firmer, smoother and more refined appearance to the neck and chin. Neck lift surgery can treat excess skin, muscle banding, excess fat and loose neck skin.
Type of Neck Lift
- Liposuction: in this method, the surgeon makes a small incision below the chin and removes the excess fat.
- Cervicoplasty: in this method, the surgeon makes an incision beneath the chin and tightens the muscles of the neck.
- Submentoplasty: in this method, incisions are made in the curve of the neck, and the neck muscles will be tightened.
Neck Lift Recommended For:
- patients who are troubled by wrinkles around their neck
- People who lost weight rapidly from dieting
Before smile designing
The patients should avoid alcohol, sugary foods and taking Aspirin and other NSAIDs include Ibuprofen a few weeks before the surgery. They should also stop smoking a few weeks before and after the surgery, since tobacco slows down the healing process. Patients should avoid working out a day before the surgery. It is recommended to minimize salt consumption before the procedure in order to reduce swelling after the surgery. If patient is planning on losing weight, the surgeon will likely advise that he/she does so before undergoing a neck lift procedure for optimum results.
