NECK LIFT

What

This procedure is also sometimes known as a mini or lower face lift

It is primarily for neck deformities eg poor jawline definition, loose skin, or fatty deposits, possibly a combination of the above. Also sometimes referred to as a Double-chin or Turkey-neck

 

When

Fatty deposits can be of concern to the patient early in adulthood, however other aspects of the aging neck eg bands and saggy skin, are generally only visible after the mid-40s

 

How

This procedure takes many different forms depending the indication

 

• Isolated liposuction-hidden 2mm incision hidden under the chin, occasionally also         behind the ear

• Neck approach - a 4 cm incision hidden under the chin

• Face approach-this is a smaller version of the face lift incision

The procedure is performed asleep or awake under sedation

It is generally performed as a day procedure and takes 1-2 ½ hours

 

Healing

Liposuction only-the wound will ooze for 3 days, bruising lasts 7 days and swelling is evident for 7 days

Neck and face approach-bruising settles in 7 days

•  Driving: 3-5 days

•  Back to work: 1-2 weeks

•  Exercise: 4 weeks
