One of the visible signs of aging is sagging skin in the jawline and neck. Neck lift or lower Rhytidectomy is cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and fat around your jawline and neck.
The loss of youthfulness can have many reasons like aging, heredity, stress and environmental conditions.
Neck lift can be performed with another surgery like face lift, but you should know you can’t do a neck lift with non surgical rejuvenation treatments. Rhytidectomy will last long but it cant stop aging process, and maybe after 10-15 years you see excess skin and fat in you jawline.
It is recommended to have a consultation with your specialist. You can say what you exactly expect and your surgeon can figure out the best method for you. Maybe your surgeon suggest you additional procedures like brow lift, skin resurfacing and face lift to achieve the results you desire.
You have to review your medical history with your specialist and stop taking blood thinning medications such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin and Warfarin several days before the surgery.
As tobacco promotes wrinkling of the skin and the healing process will be longer in people who smoke, it’s suggested to quit for a few weeks before and after the surgery.
The process takes between 1-7 hours and it is performed under local anesthesia. The most commonly used procedure in this surgery is liposuction, the surgeon will make an incision under the chin and behind each ear, then the excess fat is suctioned with special equipment.
If you smoke, It’s better to quit for at least two weeks to ease the healing process. You may have to wear special garment to reduce the swelling. Bruising and swelling are normal and you can use ice compress. You have to avoid heavy lifting and exercising, don’t bend or twist your neck and try to keep your head straight.
Your incision marks fill fade in 6-8 month and full recovery can take between 4 weeks to 2 month. Don’t wear clothes that you have to pull over your head, consult with your specialist if you had to take medications and protect your skin from the sun.
