A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
The first signs of ageing often show in the neck, as the skin and muscles lose their elasticity – leading to the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Losing a lot of weight can also have the same effect, but whatever the cause the neck is an often overlooked indicator of age. This procedure is designed to help improve the appearance of your neck.
It is a procedure that removes excess skin and fat around your jaw line, creating a more defined and youthful-looking neck.
Any invasive treatment carries its own risks and complications. Also, every procedure has limitations and the risks should be compared to the potential benefits before undergoing a surgical procedure.
Possible risks and complications include:-
Recovery time after having a necklift procedure can vary between patients. Pain, bruising and swelling is to be expected, particularly around the eyes. Bending over or lifting heavy objects should be avoided for the first several weeks and strenuous work or exercise avoided for 4-6 weeks.
As the area will be sensitive, exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided for the first few months.
Minor swelling may be apparent for up to a few months and it will be up to 12 months before the final results are available.
