Before & After

Neck aesthetics is an element that affects the youthful and lively appearance of the face. After neck lift surgery, a smooth image is obtained in the neck area.

What Causes Neck Sagging?

All causes such as aging, the effect of gravity, rapid weight gain and loss can cause results such as sagging on the neck, lubrication, jowl formation, and wrinkles on the neck skin. In short, sagging of the neck and jowl becomes inevitable as the age progresses or when you gain or lose weight rapidly. For all these reasons, the muscle and fat tissues under the skin of the neck area begin to sag. This neck sagging causes the angle between the neck and the chin to disappear. Jowl refers to the under-chin area. The problem of sagging under the chin spoils the aesthetic appearance of the jowl and the sagging of the neck begins to be seen very clearly. Sometimes there is no reason to gain or lose weight, but in some people, the jowl area may be structurally fatty and may need a solution such as jowl surgery.

Who Gets Neck Sagging Problem?

The problem of sagging in the neck is usually seen with the advancement of age. Especially men and women over the age of 40 may experience neck sagging problems. The intense weight gain-loss effect also accelerates the process of sagging in the neck. With weight gain, the jowl area is lubricated. Even if weight is lost and fat is gone over time, sagging is seen in the skin that expands in volume. For this reason, we may encounter the problem of sagging in the neck at an earlier age due to intense weight gain and loss. The problem of sagging in the neck can also be experienced in the early period in people with a small lower jaw and back.

What is Neck Lift Surgery?

Neck lift surgery is a plastic surgery that provides neck aesthetics by removing excess skin and fat from the jaw line. In order to provide neck rejuvenation in the area with neck sagging problem, the skins are properly stretched; ie jowl stretching is provided. After neck lift surgery, the sagging and wrinkled neck area is given an aesthetic appearance.

Neck lift surgery is also called jowl removal operation, as used by the people. The results of neck aesthetics, which is a cosmetic procedure, are long-lasting; However, neck lift surgery cannot stop the aging process. Neck lift surgery can be performed alone or in conjunction with facelift surgery. Depending on the needs of the person, different aesthetic operations can also be performed.

How is Neck Lift Surgery Performed?

Before neck aesthetics, the neck is examined with a detailed examination, the degree of neck sagging is determined, and surgery is planned in the area where neck lift will be provided. Photos are taken to compare before and after neck lift surgery.

Neck lift surgery is performed with general anesthesia or sedation anesthesia, which is defined as half-sleep. During the neck lift surgery, a small incision is made behind the ear towards the scalp. Excess skin is removed through this small incision. Later, the skin with sagging neck; that is, the remaining skin is stretched upwards.

During neck lift surgery, the loosened neck muscles under the skin are also shaped. Oily areas are also treated appropriately. In the last stage, the incisions are closed with aesthetic stitches and jowl aesthetics is provided. Neck lift surgery eliminates the neck sagging problem and eliminates neck wrinkles.

With the techniques used in the neck aesthetics process, the jaw line becomes more pronounced with a clear contour. A classic neck lift surgery takes 1-2 hours. However, in the case of different surgeries with neck lift aesthetics, the neck lift surgery process may take up to 5 hours.

Neck Lift

Before Neck Lift Surgery

Before neck lift surgery, talk to your doctor about your expectations and wishes, such as jowl stretching and jowl fat removal. Give information about your general health before the operation. When you decide to have neck lift surgery, you may need to take a break from some medications you use. In particular, blood thinners should be discontinued for a certain period of time before neck lift surgery.

Smoking impairs the quality of the skin and may adversely affect the neck lift operation. Smoking also slows down the healing process after neck lift surgery. It is recommended to quit smoking before neck aesthetics. Do not use cream, spray or gel on your hair while coming to neck lift surgery. Remember that anesthesia is required for this operation and stop eating 8 hours before the operation. Since you cannot dye your hair for a while after the surgery, if you are dyeing your hair, dye it 1 week before the neck lift operation.

After Neck Lift Surgery

There may be some pain on the first day after neck lift surgery; however, this level of pain is minimized with the painkillers given. A drain is placed to drain the fluid accumulation under the neck after neck lift surgery. The patient needs to stay in the hospital for one night for control purposes. One day later, the patient is discharged and the drain is removed. In neck lift surgery, the sutures placed on the incisions are removed 7 days later. There may also be stitches taken earlier. It is recommended to return to work and social life after neck aesthetics, usually after 7 days of rest.

After neck aesthetics, there is usually no intense swelling or bruising. Swelling and bruising is actually a natural condition after the operation, which can vary from person to person. Supportive bandages can be applied after neck lift surgery to prevent possible bruising and swelling problems. These bandages are used for 7-10 days. After neck aesthetics, the ideal appearance is achieved within 1-2 months as the skin is fully seated.

It is necessary to keep the head upright for a few days after neck lift surgery and not to bend over. Always keep your head above your heart. For this, straighten your lying position. Protect from intense sunlight after the operation. Use creams with a high sunscreen effect. Do not apply ice after neck aesthetics without consulting your doctor.

Although neck lift surgery incisions are small, avoid sports and activities where you will apply excessive force and movement. Care should be taken that water does not touch the incision areas for 1-2 days after neck aesthetics. For this, if possible, one should not take a shower for 1-2 days after the neck lift operation.
