What a Neck Lift Surgery Involves

People seek cosmetic surgery for a variety of reasons, and keeping a youthful appearance remains one of the top reasons. A Neck Lift Surgery is one type of surgery that is used to make people look younger. The procedure is a lot like a face lift, and sometimes people choose to get it performed at the same time as a face lift which is a great way to get the best out of both. Think about it. If you get a neck lift performed and your face still has wrinkles, it may not do much for your appearance and vice versa.

Neck lifts are ideal for people who have excess skin or fat in their neck areas. Sometimes the excess skin may be a result of people losing weight, and sometimes it can be due to aging. If the neck area is fatty in appearance, surgeons may need to perform liposuction in the neck area prior to performing the lift. The actual procedure involves cutting away some of the excess skin from the neck. After this is done surgeons use a special technique often referred to as pinning to reattach the skin.

Advancements in medicine have resulted in more and more people being able to take advantage of cosmetic surgeries. The costs for procedures today are much more affordable than they were in yesteryear. Patients today are also experiencing shorter healing times and less complications with procedures. You can expect to have some bruising and swelling after having a Neck Lift Surgery performed, and you may be on activity restrictions for at least a week. Doctors may require patients to wear dressing or special garments to keep the skin in place and prevent infection during the healing time. This is surgery that may have minimal scarring. The visibility of any scars is highly dependent upon the skill of the surgeon and how each patients’ skin heals. This is why surgeons aim to make incisions in discreet locations.
