Traditional Neck Lift surgery is considered one of the most effective ways to get rid of skin sagging and fat in the neck area. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and can take between 2-4 hours. The traditional Neck Lift procedure can be divided into the following steps:
- Planning and preparation:
In this stage, the areas that need to be tightened are identified, and preparations are made for the surgery. The patient should refrain from taking pain relievers for a week before surgery and get rid of any infections in the body.
- Surgical incision:
In this stage, the skin in the neck and chin area is carefully incised to minimize any side effects. The shape of the muscles and loose tissue is adjusted to improve the appearance of the neck.
- Fat removal:
The surgeon may need to remove excess fat in the area using liposuction techniques or laser surgery.
- Skin tightening:
The skin in the desired area is tightened using threads or by moving and lifting the skin to secure it properly. The skin is sutured, and the wound is closed.
- Recovery monitoring:
After the surgery, special bandages are placed on the neck and face to reduce swelling and inflammation. The patient should rest sufficiently and avoid exertion for a period until the wound is healed. Follow-up appointments with the doctor are scheduled to monitor the recovery process.
