Neck Lift Surgery in Turkey

Neck lift, also known as platysmaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess skin and fat around the neck area to help you achieve a tighter, younger, and slender looking neck. 

This procedure can create a more defined jawline, reduces wrinkles, and helps patients who have experienced weight gain or loss improve the laxity of sagging skin.

How to prepare for Neck Lift Surgery?

Before Neck Lift Surgery the surgeon will examine the face and neck area, take photographs and discuss the surgery options available to you. They will also ask to see your medical history and any medications you are taking, so it is important you disclose accurate information about your current health status. 

During the medical examination, the doctor can also check if you’re suitable for combined facial surgeries, such as chin implants, or a facelift, and examine your jawline to see if you have any symptoms of a weak chin. If you do require additional surgeries then you should discuss this with the surgeon during the consultation. 

Before the surgery some of the following may be advised.

– Avoid nicotine for a month before surgery
– Abstain from antiinflammatory drugs, as they can increase bleeding.
– Stop smoking 1-2 months before the operation

Neck Lift Procedure

Depending on the technique used, neck lift surgery starts with incisions either in the hairline or around the ear. The surgeon will remove fatty tissues, which will be repositioned under your neck and tighten your platysma muscle. They will also eliminate any surplus skin. The procedure takes less than three hours and is done under general anaesthesia. 

Depending on the type of Neck Lift Surgery you decide to have in Turkey, there are a couple other techniques that can be used by the surgeon.

Neck lift with Liposuction – The surgeon makes a small incision behind each ear, and under the chin. Excess fat is then removed from the jawline and beneath the chin.

Non Surgical Neck Lift – This procedure used botox injections to stimulate collagen in the neck area to help tighten up the skin and reverse sagging, but results are not guaranteed.

Neck Lift Recovery

Typically, neck lift recovery takes 10-14 days before you can resume normal activities. During this time most of the swelling and bruising would have subsided and the results of the neck surgery will become more visible.

In some cases the surgeon may give you a compression garment to support the lower face, which is usually worn for about one week. Strenuous activity, such as heavy lifting or intense cardio should be avoided for about six weeks. 

It can take several months to start to see the full results of your neck lift, but when leading a healthy lifestyle the results can last up to 10 years. It is still important to maintain a good diet, as gaining or losing weight can change the appearance or effects of the surgery.
