The appearance of your neck has a significant impact on your overall look. Sagging skin around the neck, skin laxity below the jawline, and neck banding are unwanted. These imperfections can be addressed by a neck lift here at our Clinic in Cleveland.
Preparing for Your Neck Lift
A major surgery requires adequate preparation and certain lifestyle adjustments. Particularly, the patient is advised to avoid the intake of alcohol, sweets, and highly fatty foods. Certain medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin should also be avoided. More importantly, it is a no-no to smoke weeks/months before your neck lift surgery. Such habits can compromise the success of the surgery and its results thereafter.
Getting to Know the Procedure
A neck lift usually takes two to three hours to complete and the patient may be placed under local or general anesthesia and sedation. The extent of the procedure depends upon the condition of the neck as well as the individual’s unique goals and needs. Some may only need simple liposuction/fat removal to get rid of fatty deposits around the neck while others may need removal of excess fat and skin as well as a tightening and modifying of the neck muscles.
What to Expect During a Neck Lift
Traditionally, a neck lift involves creating an incision in inconspicuous places on the face, such as under the chin or behind the ear. Once the cuts are made, excess fat is then removed. Slack muscles are also tightened to achieve a taut appearance. Once the modifications have been made, the skin is then pulled tight and sutured close.
