Neck Lift Surgery: What to expect and Possible Complications

The need for facial rejuvenation is increasing day by day among Indians. Indians generally go through many volume changes in the body. Many people opt for neck lift surgery for aesthetic reasons. A neck lift surgery helps you get a beautifully toned and more defined looking neck. It is done by removing excess skin and fat around the jawline.

Neck Lift: What can you expect from the Procedure?

A neck lift includes many procedures that are performed to improve the appearance of your neck. These procedures can include altering neck muscles, botox injections, removing excess skin, and liposuction. Some of the other neck lifting techniques include ultrasound and radio frequency devices, lasers, intense pulsed light, and fillers.


Before undergoing surgery, talk to your doctor and tell him or her what you are expecting from the surgery.


Your doctor will evaluate your health and also discuss your goals and expectations. After the complete evaluation, the doctor will decide on the surgical method that works best for you. Also, there might be certain changes in your medical regime. If you smoke, your doctor will ask you to quit it before the surgery and during the recovery.


Sometimes, the doctor may also suggest additional procedures like eyelid surgery or brow lift to give you the results you desire.


Those who require a minimal lift opt for a mini neck lift. Local anesthesia is used to perform a mini neck lift. People who have excess sagging skin or people who are in their late 60s may require a full neck lift.


The neck lift surgery is done with either local anesthesia or general anesthesia. After the procedure, you might experience some swelling and bruising.


Many surgeons also ask patients to wear a garment for a few days. The garment compresses the neck and helps in reducing swelling. You can return to work and carry your day-to-day responsibilities in two to four weeks.


Generally, it takes a few weeks for bruising and swelling to disappear. Your incisions line will fade within six months. But you should protect your skin from the sun and excessive motion.


Some of the risks involved with neck lift surgery are scarring, infection, skin loss, nerve injury, blood clots, bleeding under the skin and open wounds. If you experience any complications after surgery, visit your doctor immediately.
