Neck Lift Surgery

What is Neck Lift Surgery?

Neck lift surgery is a surgical procedure performed to eliminate the appearance of sagging skin in the neck and under-chin area, which usually occurs with aging. It is especially ideal for patients who have lost weight and those who have loose, sagging skin in the neck area as a result of aging.

With neck lift surgery, excess fatty tissue and sagging skin are removed. Thus, a tighter, thinner and younger appearance is achieved.

How is Neck Lift Surgery Performed?

Before the procedure, the patient’s condition is examined in detail and it is decided which procedures will be performed. During the surgery, an incision is made under the chin and behind the ear. If there are fat deposits and need to be removed, liposuction will be performed first during the surgery. As the final steps of the surgery, excess skin is cut off, the underlying tissue and muscles are tightened tightly, and the incision is stitched to complete the surgery.

What Should Be Done Before Neck Lift Surgery?

Patients who smoke should stop using tobacco products at least 3-4 weeks before surgery. It is also necessary to stop taking anti-inflammatory and blood thinning medications about a week before neck lift surgery. You can continue normal exercise and daily routines until the time of surgery.

Neck lift surgery is a surgery performed under general anesthesia. First of all, a detailed examination is performed and the procedures to be applied are decided together with the patient. Then, a series of tests are performed along with blood tests to determine whether there is any obstacle to surgery.

How Long Does Neck Lift Surgery Take?

This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Surgery time is generally approximately 2-3 hours, although it varies depending on the case.

Is Pain Felt During or After Neck Lift Surgery?

Since neck lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia, no pain is felt during the surgery. The pain felt after the surgery is minimized with painkillers.
