If your neck has started to show signs of aging, chances are you already know that it’s impossible to fix it with creams and lotions, a neck lift is the best solution. A neck lift will tone and tighten the neck and restore a defined jawline. But what can you expect during a neck lift procedure.
What is a neck lift?
A neck lift is done to improve the firmness and definition of the neck and jawline. Aging in the neck is usually marked by loose skin, fat bulges, and sagging muscles. A neck lift addresses all these issues.
What can you expect during a neck lift procedure?
Neck lift surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia and takes approximately 2-3 hours. However, the duration varies depending on the extent of the procedure.
The incisions for neck lift surgery are usually made behind the ears, and under the chin.Depending on the specific concerns being addressed surgery may involve removing excess sagging skin and fat, and tightening the neck muscles.
It typically takes 10-14 days to heal after neck lift surgery. There is generally some pain and swelling after the procedure, but pain medication is prescribed.
