WHAT HAPPENS BEFORE THE SURGERY
Consultation is necessary
The necklift procedure can be combined with a facelift. Only the plastic surgeon can assess which procedure will be the best for you. Make an appointment for the pre-surgery consultation which precedes every surgery. You will be taken care of directly by a plastic surgeon (that means the most competent specialist) at the Aesthevita plastic surgery clinic. Ask questions about anything you are curious about. Among other things, the doctor will show the area where he/she will make an incision and how much skin is likely to be removed. You will leave the consultation with a clearer image of the process and the outcome of the planned surgery.
Lifting is more powerful than creams
Significantly sagging skin needs a more effective tool than skin tightening creams. Regardless of what miracles they promise. Even a cream with strong tightening effects is not as helpful as the removal of excess skin and pulling the sagging skin upwards which happens during lifting.
Right before the surgery
Before the procedure, you undergo a pre-surgery examination with blood sampling and an ECG. The patients aged over 60 undergo an x-ray of the lungs as well, for smokers the age limit is lowered to 50+.
WHAT IS HAPPENING UNDER THE HANDS OF A SURGEON
What does the surgery consist of
Plastic surgery of the neck can have various forms and therefore it takes a various degree of surgical procedures aimed at neck rejuvenation. Sometimes this involves a necklift as the part of the facelift procedure and sometimes the surgical correction of the underlying structures of the neck (skin muscles – the platysma, the fat under the platysma). This influences the complexity of the surgery and the type of anaesthesia. The surgeon performs the incision according to the selected method, either under the chin, behind the ears or possibly in both areas. After removing the excess skin, the surgeon stitches the wounds with absorbable sutures.
Scars remain exiguous
Do not be afraid of visible marks. The thin scars remain hidden from sight. The wounds in the facial area heal very well because there is a good blood supply. This improves the healing of the scars.
Overnight stay at the clinic
If you undergo the necklift under local anaesthesia, you will leave the clinic on the same day. After general anaesthesia, a short hospitalization is necessary. For one or more nights – according to the surgeon’s assessment. Take any hospitalization as a positive – after the surgery you will have proper rest and the doctor keeps an eye on the early phase of healing.
THE WAYS IN WHICH I CAN SUPPORT RECOVERY
Resting is essential
We usually do not think of it but our neck is a part of everything we do, whatever we do. Therefore, rest enough a week after the necklift and do not push yourself too much. Allow the skin after the surgery to recover well.
Wear a halter
A special elastic halter will accompany you for two weeks after the surgery. Wear it because it has an important role in the post-surgery recovery.
When do the bruises disappear
There is probably no surgery without bruises and swelling. They are a natural body reaction and you should take them as such. Small bruises and swelling will disappear within two weeks after the necklift. They remain hidden under the elastic halter most of the time.
HOW IT WILL CHANGE MY LIFE
Take care of the tightened skin
Do not rest on your laurels. Even plastic surgery cannot stop time. Use quality cosmetics aimed at skin tightening for your skin after the necklift. You can slow down the process of sagging which naturally comes about over the years.
