Neck and Jowl Aesthetics
You Can Call Us Or Fill Out The Form On The Side
With increasing age and effect of the gravity, soft tissues in the neck relax and sag. There are more than one alternative to correct this situation. As these alternatives can be used on their own, they can also be performed by combining with each other.
We can basically divide the plastic surgeries may be performed in the neck into 3 groups.
Liposuction of neck area
Plication to platysmal bands
Neck lift surgery
Liposuction of Neck Area
If there is fat excess in the patient elementarily, not an excessive sagging in the skin, and if the patient is in young-middle ages preferably liposuction is applied in the neck area.
With this operation, by entering with very fine cannulas, fats in neck and under chin are taken out. With press performed and corset used afterwards, the loosened skin in neck area will stick to its new place and the skin will reduce. This surgery lasting about 45 minutes is an operation which is highly effective, comfortable for the patient, of which recovery time is short, and performed without leaving any scar. The patient can return his/her normal life within 2-3 days.
Plication To Platysmal Bands
If the muscles in neck have been separated from each other, taken shape of two separate bands, but if there is not an excessive sagging, an operation is performed to the patient by entering from beneath the chin.
In this surgery, the muscles surrounding the neck are taken out an amount, and sutured by approaching to each other. By this means, a more stretched tissue covers the neck area. The surgery takes 1 hour, and the patient can return his/her normal life within 2-3 days. A fine, non-apparent mark of 4-5 cm is left under the chin.
Neck Lift Surgery
As neck lift surgeries can be performed on their own, they can also be applied together with the face lift surgery. The surgical incision made in facelift surgery extends from behind the ear towards the scalp. By separating the skin and muscles of the neck, it is lifted upwards.
The excess skin is cut and removed, and adapted to its new place. Wrinkles and sagging in the neck are removed, the jaw angle is made clear, and a stretched and aesthetic neck appearance is provided. Because the mark of neck lift surgery is left behind the ear, when looking from outside an apparent trace is not left. When fat deposition in upper part of the chin, relaxation in the neck muscles and sagging occur in parallel with these, it may be necessary to correct the jowl area separately and this situation can be combined with liposuction or platysmal plication.
The neck lift surgeries are performed under general anesthesia. Surgery time is about 2 hours. Drain is placed to prevent the blood accumulation under skin of the neck. The drain is removed 1 day after. Sutures heal in 1 week; swelling in the neck area starts to reduce in 1 week. You can continue your normal life 1 week after this surgery. When you get rid of the oedema and bruises after the neck lift surgery, you will observe an impressive improvement in your neck area, and the unified appearance of your chin and neck with each other will disappear.
Neck Lift Surgery Prices
Neck lift surgery prices primarily depend on what type of neck lift surgery will be performed. If full neck lift, platysmal plication or liposuction will be applied, the prices will vary. Also one of the factors affecting the neck lift prices is whether an additional application will be performed with, or not. If it will be performed in combination with facelift, eyelid aesthetics, of course the price will change. For information about the neck lift prices, you should get examined by your doctor.
