NECK LIFT

OVERVIEW:

A neck lift (platysmaplasty) is a procedure that is performed to tighten the bands of muscles found on both sides of the neck to improve the angle of the jaw and lift sagging skin. It can be done in conjunction with a facelift or as a standalone procedure.

  • HOW TO PREPARE
  • FOOD AND MEDICATIONS

Your doctor might ask you to stop taking aspirin or other blood-thinning medications several days before your surgery. These can include warfarin, heparin and aspirin and other medications such as ibuprofen.

  • OTHER PRECAUTIONS

Because smoking tobacco promotes wrinkling of the skin and slows both recovery and healing your doctor will recommend that you quit smoking before having a neck lift. Should you opt not to stay at the hotel arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and for them to stay with you the first night after your procedure.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT


BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Before you have a neck lift your doctor will consult with you to evaluate your health and to discuss your surgical goals and expectations. Your doctor will then decide on the surgical method that works best for you. He or she might suggest additional procedures such as a brow lift eyelid surgery or skin resurfacing that might help give you the results you desire. Your face will be examined and measured and you might have photographs taken so that you can compare your appearance before and after surgery.

DURING THE PROCEDURE
A neck lift can be done with sedation and local anaesthesia, in which only part of your body feels numb, or under general anaesthesia, where you are unconscious. Liposuction is the most commonly used procedure. The surgeon makes a tiny incision behind each ear and under the chin. Specialised equipment suctions fat from the jaw line and beneath the chin. If your skin is resilient and the only reason for your dissatisfaction with your neck’s appearance is fullness due to fat, liposuction can give you a more defined neck.
Liposuction, however, will not correct structural problems that contribute to your neck’s appearance. Your doctor will discuss the type of surgery that will work best for you, depending on several factors, including your desired outcome, cost and what is causing your dissatisfaction with your neck.

AFTER THE PROCEDURE
• You are likely to have swelling and bruising.
• You might need to wear a special garment that compresses your neck and helps reduce swelling.
• You will also need to keep your head elevated above your heart and to keep it straight.
• Avoid twisting or bending your neck.

RESULTS

It might take several weeks to months for swelling and bruising to fully disappear and up to six months for your incision lines to fade. Until then protect your skin from the sun, avoid wearing clothing that requires going over your head and be gentle with your surgical incisions.
