Neck lift surgery

What is a neck lift?

Neck is one of the few body areas that start to change due to aging. A “turkey wattle”, vertical banding, horizontal creases and a double chin can all make us look older than we feel. A neck lift is a rejuvenation surgery that enhances the appearance of the neck.

A neck lift is performed while the patient is under general anaesthesia. It works by tightening the underlying muscles and removing saggy skin as well as excess fat. Incisions may be hidden in the hairline or under the chin. 

At our clinic, we offer a classical neck lift and platysmaplasty surgeries to directly address the neck area. The difference between a platysmaplasty and a neck lift is that the platysmaplasty deals only with the platysma bands in the neck, while a neck lift addresses the muscles and skin of the entire neck. The neck area is also being addressed during a more extensive facelift surgery.

Who is eligible for a neck lift surgery and what surgeries can it be combined with?

Neck lift can give you a more youthful profile and frame the rest of the face. Neck anatomy differs with each patient, and thus, not everyone is an eligible candidate for a neck lift. 

Although a neck lift can be done as a stand-alone surgery, there is a possibility to perform it along with other rejuvenation procedures, like a chin liposuction, a facelift, or a fat transfer.

Preparing for a neck lift

In order to select the most suitable surgical method a thorough discussion with a surgeon is necessary. During a consultation a patient will be able to discuss any specific expectations for the outcome of the surgery and a surgeon will explain in detail the surgery and recovery plans.

Also, the patients must stop taking blood-thinning substances, such as aspirin, certain herbs, teas, and anti-inflammatory drugs. 

Smoking and alcohol consumption must be avoided at least one month before and after the surgery so that it does not restrict blood circulation and the healing process.

Medical examination and review of medical history are essential steps before surgery. To determine the best approach of a neck lift a surgeon will examine the patient and discuss available strategies. The patients will have to undergo any necessary lab tests, such as blood work, a urine test, and others.

You should take care of items that will come in handy after your surgery is done. It includes ice packs, gauze and towels, loose clothing (preferably buttoned-down tops that do not have to be pulled over the head). 

An empty stomach is required for anyone undergoing general anaesthesia. In order to prevent regurgitation during the surgery the patients should not eat or drink 6 hours before the surgery.

Recovery after neck lift surgery

After the surgery is performed you will wake up from anaesthesia in a recovery room. You may find a drain tube inserted under the bandages to help drain any excess fluids. The incision sites will be covered with bandages which will need to be changed according to your doctor’s request. You might have to wear a special chin slack which will ensure equal distribution of pressure. Remember to rest and take time for yourself, have someone assisting you, get plenty of water and nutritious foods, avoid stress. Most importantly, avoid alcohol, nicotine and drugs.

If drainage tubes were used they will be removed after a few days. Stitches will be removed in 7 days unless dissolvable stitches were used. Do not apply ice on the wound site as cooling down the area might result in restricted blood flow, and thus, disturbed wound recovery unless advised otherwise by your surgeon. Bruising should fade away in a couple of weeks. It is highly recommended to avoid driving after the surgery at least until bruising is relieved. To be able to appreciate the final results of the procedure a patient might need to wait for few months until the swelling and bruising have fully gone down.

A doctor will inform you about any specific pain-relieving medications you have to take. The recovery can take up to four weeks. A patient should be prepared to take time off work for at least 2 to 4 weeks when recovering.

Sun should be avoided for several weeks as it can interfere with the healing of the scars and damage the surrounding vulnerable skin. Heavy physical activities should be ceased for at least four weeks. You can resume once your doctor allows you to do so.

Quality skin care will prevent aging and inevitably add to the effect of a neck lift. Weight fluctuation tends to stretch the skin, hence, a healthy diet and a stable weight will likely prolong the results. Nutrition highly influences the skin condition as well. A patient should consume enough proteins which are essential for wound healing. Zinc, vitamins A and C should all be consumed properly since they are important for the synthesis of collagen and skin maintenance. Note that malnutrition impairs all stages of immune response, wound healing and tissue production.
