For the patients who have sagging in the neck area due to gravity and aging process, neck lift can be very usefull. In the neck lift operation, we remove the excess skin and fat tissue in the neck area. This operation is performed under general anaesthesia and it takes 45-60 minutes to complete it. The excess skin is removed by a thin incision under the neck and sutured again. The scar won’t be visible since it is located around the ears and it is very thin.
The excess fat tissue is also removed with a special device called VASER which removes only the fat without harming any other tissue. This device allows the surgeon to remove more fat precisely and complete the surgery in a shorter time.
Why Should I have a neck lift operation?
With the effects of gravity and aging the skin tissue gets sagged. This is especially an unwanted condition when it happens in visible areas. Neck area is one of the most prominent areas in the body and people try to hide this area with a scarf or shirt. Neck lift surgery will provide you a younger and fresher looking.
Neck lift is performed under general anaesthesia and it takes nearly 40-60 minutes. You will be advised not to eat 6 hours before the surgery and that is all! You will get a physical examination by your surgeon and anaesthetist. After the examination; we will prepare you for the surgery.
If your skin sagging is not that much and you are complaining from only the excess fat tissue on the neck area; then Vaser (allowing us to remove the excess fat tissue and make the skin tissue firmer) procedure can be performed. In which there is no need for a long skin incision Vaser and laser can be enough. We enter from a little incision approximately 0.5 cm via thin cannula and remove the fat tissue. After this operation, the skin gets firmer due to the effects of Vaser and laser. So if you do not have too much sagging; this operation may solve your problems without any need for general anaesthesia or skin incision. However, if the sagging is too much, then you might need removal of the excess skin.
Recovery and Results
After the neck lifting operation, the recovery period depends on your physical status, age, general health, and condition mainly. The operation itself does not take too long, therefore, you receive a mild anaesthesia. Since the anaesthesia that you receive is mild; you will not have problems after the operation. You can start to do your daily activities just after the operation, but we do not advise you heavy lifting, running or activities that require excess physical activity. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.
The main advantage of this operation is that there is no need for skin excision in all cases. We can solve the sagging problem without any incision in most of the cases. Our main goal is to have an effective and satisfying result without any visible scar formation and also provide you with a better postoperative healing period.
