When might you need a necklift ?
A neck lift may be needed if you have unwanted sagging of the neck or jawline. Both men and women can get submentoplasty. You are a good candidate for the necklift if your skin still has its elasticity. Also, you must be in good general and mental health. Inform your surgeon if you have any specific health condition or allergic reactions.
Most people who want to have neck lift done are over 40 years old. But sometimes sagging skin may occur earlier because of certain conditions, such as big weight loss. Some people do not want to have a full facelift yet, however, they will note excess wrinkling of the neck skin, a turkey wattle or double chin. When the neck area does not match the upper facial appearance, a neck lift is a perfect solution.
How neck lift surgery is done?
Lower rhytidectomy consists of two procedures. First is called cervicoplasty which is done to remove the excess skin. Second is called platysmaplasty and is done to alter neck muscles. Before the surgery, you should avoid using alcohol, drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen and very fatty and sugary food. You should quit smoking at least two weeks before the surgery. Neck lift procedure typically lasts about 2-3 hours and is usually done under local anesthesia. For more information on the pre-op recommendations check our article.
However, if it is combined with some more serious plastic surgery it can be performed under general anesthesia. There are different methods of how the neck lift can be done and it depends on the patient’s needs. For some patients, chin liposuction and small skin removal is enough while for others the removal of excess skin and fat along with the tightening and restructuring of the underlying muscles are needed. The incisions are really small and are usually placed behind the ears and under the chin. During the surgery through these incisions the fat will be removed, after that, the skin will be pulled taut, and the incisions will be closed.
Who is a candidate for the neck lift surgery?
People with turkey wattle neck, excess fat or too much skin on the neck are good candidates for the neck lift. The ideal candidate for the neck lift surgery is the one whose skin still has some elasticity. You should be in good health and have realistic expectations if you want to get a lower facelift.
