Neck Lift

NECK LIFT

Is sagging neck skin affecting your appearance? Regain a youthful neck curve at Cosmetrix

If you want to reverse the visible signs of aging in your jawline and neck, you may want to consider a neck lift, also called a lower rhytidectomy. This popular procedure will give you a more youthful appearance by removing excess fat and skin in the lower face that creates jowls, as well as loose skin and muscle banding in the neck.

Who is it for?

Neck lifts are suitable for men and women who are looking to reverse the loss of their youthful contours in the lower face and neck, which can be due to a variety of factors, including heredity, gravity, environmental conditions and stress. When the appearance of the neck and lower jaw don’t match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift may be a good solution. To have this procedure, you must be in good health.

What to expect?

In preparing for neck lift surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding

This surgery takes around two hours. It is a day surgery that can be performed either under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation. The procedure involves removing excess skin and removing or altering neck muscles, and may include liposuction to remove excess fat, to enhance the appearance of your neck. You generally won’t have to stay overnight in the hospital following this procedure, though one night’s stay may be needed in some cases.

How long will it take you to recover?

It will take at least two weeks to recover from this procedure.  You’ll have to severely limit strenuous exercise for at least three weeks. Your doctor will advise you on this based on your personal situation, as you go through the healing process.

Common side effects

After a neck lift, you may experience some common side effects that can persist for a few weeks or even months. In the days following surgery, swelling and bruising are likely to occur. In the weeks following the procedure, it is normal to experience some numbness, tightness or tingling, as well as some burning or pulling. The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.

The new you…

The tighter skin and more defined jawline will give you a more youthful appearance immediately, though the full effects of the procedure will not be achieved for up to six months. Keeping fit and maintaining a healthy diet will help you to achieve the most benefit from your neck lift and keep the new shape forever.
