What exactly is a neck-lift?

A neck lift is an underrated procedure that can deliver amazing rejuvenation effects. It is often performed in combination with a deep-plane facelift. The primary objective is to address concerns like the double chin by utilizing liposuction, tightening the platysma muscle, removing deep retro-platysmal fat, and creating a more toned neck through a combination of digastric muscle corset and plastysmoplasty techniques. This procedure is a game-changer, making the difference between achieving a good facelift result and experiencing a remarkable transformation of the entire facial appearance.

What kind of result can I expect?

The neck lift aims to eliminate excess fat in the double chin area and tighten the neck muscles, including the platysma and digastric muscles. Its objective is to achieve a sleek neck profile with a well-defined jawline and a clear cervico-mandibular angle

Where are the scars of a neck-lift?

There will be a 3 cm scar hidden under the chin to perform the face removal and muscle tightening. 

Can we do the necklift under local anesthesia

Yes, like the facelift procedure can indeed be performed under local anesthesia, eliminating the potential risks associated with general anesthesia. To achieve this, a combination of local anesthetic products is used to provide an extended numbing effect. During the procedure, the patient remains awake, similar to a dental procedure, but they do not experience any pain, ensuring a comfortable and safe surgical experience.

Can I combine the neck lift with other face procedures?

Yes, it's possible and it's a smart decision to combine various types of facial procedures, including eyelid surgery (both upper and lower blepharoplasty), temporal lift, lip lift, buccal fat pad removal, and face fat transfer, to achieve a comprehensive facial rejuvenation tailored to individual goals and needs.

When can I resume sport activities?

It's important for patients to understand that the recovery period can vary, and returning to physical activity should be a gradual process. Typically, light activities, such as walking, can be resumed within a few days post-surgery, aiding circulation and recovery. However, it's crucial to avoid strenuous activities, especially those that involve the chest muscles like weight lifting for at least four to six weeks. This allows the implants to properly settle and the incision sites to heal. High-impact activities, such as running or jumping, should be reintroduced slowly and only after one month after the surgery.

What are the risks of necklift?

Neck lift procedures, like any surgical intervention, carry certain risks and potential complications. These can include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, asymmetry, and skin irregularities. Additionally, there is a risk of injury to nerves and blood vessels in the neck region, which can result in temporary or, in rare cases, permanent numbness or altered sensation. Hematomas (collections of blood) or seromas (collections of fluid) may also develop, necessitating drainage or further treatment.
