How Is A Neck Lift Performed? What Are The Neck Lift Techniques?
Neck lift operations can be applied together with a facelift operation or can be applied alone. At the same time, liposuction can be performed if there is excess fat in the neck area. Neck lift operations are performed with two different techniques. These are the classic facelift technique and hanger technique.
Classic neck stretching technique is applied to patients whose skin is very deformed, wrinkles and sagging are intense. In this technique, an incision of 2 cm is made from the lower part of the jaw. Through this incision, the tissues located under the jaw are reached. In this way, the excess oils found here can be pulled and the recovery and stretching process are performed on the neck.
Another method used in neck lifting operations is the hanging method. Hanging materials are used in this technique. These materials are inserted through the incisions and placed in the area. The tissues are held by the spiky protrusions on this material and the neck is stretched when it is pulled up. As a result, the sagging will be corrected. But this method is not enough to remove fat found in the tickle area.
What To Consider Before Neck Lift Operation
Aspirin, smoking, and alcohol use should be discontinued before each operation. Therefore, aspirin, smoking, and alcohol use should be stopped before arm lift surgery.
In the last week, the use of drugs that dilute the blood should be stopped. Painkillers called Aspranaks, Voltaren, Vermidon should not be used. If you need painkillers, Minoset or Novalgin will suffice.
