A neck lift is a plastic surgery procedure carried out by our English-speaking specialist surgeon for people with sagging skin and muscles around the neck. This treatment is primarily carried out for aesthetical reasons to remove excess skin.
As we age, the muscular structures around the neck begin to weaken, making the skin sag and stretch. Fat deposits are also often formed over time which need to be removed, helping you look younger and more vibrant again.
When is the Neck Lift Procedure Advisable?
A neck lift is best suited for healthy people who find themselves with neck laxity due to normal aging. Although the majority of patients who opt for a neck lift are actually men, anyone who is suffering from droopy skin around the neck can benefit.
This procedure can also be combined with other surgical procedures including a facelift and even minor liposuction.
Consultation for Neck Lift
A neck lift is not a complicated treatment compared to other types of plastic surgery (e.g reshaping the breasts or nose, for example). At your consultation, our specialist doctor will thoroughly examine the neck. You need to discuss your medical history and any current health problems which are important when considering any surgery.
A neck lift is a treatment that is tried, tested, and approved since decades ago. In fact, it is one of the most predictable procedures in plastic surgery. It is important to remember that the goal of plastic surgery is to obtain results that look as natural as possible.
Therefore, you can expect your neck to look healthier and closer to its natural appearance before the sagging developed.
This patient combined his neck lift with a facelift and also some fillers. What a result!
Firstly, treatment is done under general anesthesia. Once the patient is asleep, an incision is normally made at the hairline at the level of the sideburn. This continues down and around the ear, which ends in the hair.
Then, the underlying tissue is repositioned and muscles tightened. Excess skin is trimmed away and an additional incision under the skin is often necessary for a liposuction treatment and muscle repair. In some cases, fat may be sculpted or redistributed. Finally, sutures or special skin adhesives are used to close the incisions.
Recovery from Neck Lift Treatment
When the procedure is complete, it is normal for a bandage to be gently placed around the neck and part of the face which helps minimalize swelling and bruising.
However, it will take several weeks and possibly some months to fully appreciate the effects of a neck lift treatment. Fortunately, any scarring gradually fades as time passes.
The final result will provide a more youthful appearance with sagging skin and lax muscles a thing of the past. This treatment can last for ten or even fifteen years if the patient follows a healthy lifestyle following the procedure.
WHICH SURGEON TO CHOOSE?
Firstly, do your homework! Check out the website for Peru’s medical college (Colegio Medico del Peru) and see if your doctor really has a RNE (National Registry of Specialist) license. Many doctors only have a CMP license, but this is not enough for invasive, specialist procedures.
Finally, talk to us. Make contact and have an in-depth conversation. This is important to get a feel for the type of clinic they are and service you can expect to receive.
