Neck Lift - All you need to know

Updated December 28, 2018

We are paying huge attention to our face trying to make it look younger, forgetting about our neck. Neck is the area that shows our age the most. With age, the skin on the neck loses its elasticity and tone. If you do not like the way your neck looks, you should consider having neck lift in Poland. Below you will find everything you need to know about lower face lift in Poland.

Neck lift definition:

Neck lift or submentoplasty is a plastic surgery that is done on the neck to remove sagging skin and to alter neck muscles, in order to make your neck look younger. 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. Lower rhytidectomy in Poland is an affordable and popular plastic surgery that can be combined with chin liposuction or facelift.

Benefits of Neck lift surgery:

  • Defines the jawline
  • Reduces or eliminates “turkey neck”
  • Corrects double or triple chin.
  • The scar is almost unnoticeable even when the hair is styled back
  • The impression of weight loss can be achieved
  • More youthful jawline and a smooth neck
  • Improves self-esteem

Neck lift candidates

If you have turkey wattle neck, excess fat or too much skin on your neck you are a candidate for the neck lift (lower rhytidectomy) in Poland. Usually, the first signs of an aging show up on our neck when we hit 40 but sometimes the neck can start to look older due to the huge weight loss. The ideal candidate for the neck lift surgery is the one whose skin still has some elasticity. You should be in a good health and have realistic expectations if you want to get lower facelift abroad. The surgery can be done under local or general anesthesia, tell your surgeon, if previously you have had any allergic reaction to anesthesia. Also, you must inform your doctor if you suffer from any specific health condition.

Neck lift prices

The price of the procedure depends on several factors like the country where the clinic is situated, the professionalism of the surgeon, the clinic etc. Prices for the neck lift in Poland are known to be much cheaper than in Western Europe. In Poland, not only the surgery is included in the price but also consultation, all medical tests and 1 night in the clinic (if needed). Below you can find neck lift price comparison:

How Neck lift is done:

There are different methods of how the neck lift can be done. The method 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.

Neck lift abroad is usually done under local anesthesia, but if the procedure is combined with more serious plastic surgery like breast augmentation in Poland it can be performed under general anesthesia.

Stay in the clinic: no need to stay in the clinic

Minimal stay for Neck lift in Poland: 6 days

Back to work: 6 days

Neck lift recovery:

Neck lift surgery does not require a night stay in the clinic. The time you can go back home or hotel depends on how you recover from the anesthesia. For the first two hours after the surgery, you may feel tight and sore which are absolutely normal. To help you handle the pain your surgeon will prescribe you painkillers. For the first two weeks after the surgery, the numbness can occur around the incision and you may feel tightness, tingling, sporadic sharp pains, pulling, burning, or cold sensation.

After the surgery, you should remember to keep your head and neck still, so if there is a need to turn, you need to turn your whole body, not just your head. You should sleep with your head elevated and avoid lifting heavy objects for two weeks after the surgery. To reduce the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis you should go for a walk or walk around the house few times a day. To achieve better results for a week after the surgery you should wear compression garment. For 6 months you should protect your skin from the sun and excessive abrasion or motion. Generally, after one month you can go back to all your daily activities. Remember that neck lift results generally improve over the healing time, and you should give your body time to recover from the surgery

After the Neck lift surgery:

For two weeks after the surgery, you should keep avoiding using NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen and excessively fatty and sugary food. You also should not smoke and drink alcohol.
