The most important cause of aging effects and sagging face is gravity. In addition, frequent weight loss is effective in this for genetic factors. The loosening of the skin slides down the face, effectively first on the forehead and in the middle section. On the one hand, the looseness of the skin that forms on the lower part of the face and on the neck is effective for the deterioration of the expression and shape of the face. In this way, the person’s facial Oval deteriorates. Flattening occurs at the angle between the neck and under the chin. This view gives the person an older look when viewed from the download. This appearance can also be accompanied by fat residues that accumulate in the region we call tickle. The way to get rid of these problems is to apply a neck lift. So you can have a younger look.
How is a neck lift performed?
In a neck lift operation, which is usually performed during a face lift aesthetic, the incision is extended to the scalp, starting from behind the ear. From here, the skin and muscles of the neck are separated and stretched upwards. These are fixed by making internal seams. Excess skin in the area is carefully cut and removed from here. The area is again carefully stitched closed. This application corrects wrinkles and saggy appearance on the neck. The angle of the jaw is made obvious, and the neck structure is created, which gives a tense and youthful appearance. During this procedure, the incision is located behind the ear, and there are no visible marks.
If there is lubrication under the chin, when sagging occurs on the neck due to looseness in the neck muscles, that is, if there is a broken tickle area, this is corrected during the operation. Fat deposits can be removed by liposuction or fat can be removed from here by making an incision in the area. If the area is opened in this way, the loosening neck muscles can also be tightened. This also helps to tighten the neck muscles. Any sagging does not occur due to oils taken from the area. But because the angle of the neck and jaw is corrected, they become more pronounced.
Recovery After Neck Lift
After a neck lift, effects such as bruising, pain, tension, numbness, swelling may occur in the patient’s neck area. These are expected situations. But the pain is not expected to bother the patient.

How Long Will The Operation Take?

In the absence of blood accumulation under the skin during the operation, drain is placed under the skin. This remains on the skin for up to a day and the patient is removed without discharge. If the patient has been given an application under the chin, a bandage is made to this area. The duration of the bandage is also about a week.
